THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Doneraki Restaurant Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS With colorful paper decorations, year-round Christmas lights and a nightly mariachi band, Doneraki is a beacon of both good food and fun. It requires lots of concentration to review the huge menu, which includes everything from a simple taco dinner; to Mexican specialties like breaded and fried tender steak or marinated quail with garlic sauce; to the traditional chile relleno stuffed with cheese, chicken or beef. But regulars usually come back for just a few favorites, namely the tacos al carbon del trompo and the chips and queso. The wandering musicians are topnotch; but they require decent tipping and will force conversations to shouting-level, so don't go for an intimate date.
