    Donkey is a great place for happy hour and features a large outdoor patio. $1 off all drinks during happy hour. Fun and vibrant spot in GR.

    Fantastic tacos ranging from traditional to creative combos. The seafood ones are the best. Also try the non-alcoholic granitas on a hot day.

    Chips and salsa were great as well as their margaritas and tacos. I had the seafood of the day taco and the crayfish taco and the were amazing!

    Best margaritas in Grand Rapids! The food is authentic and always good. I love the beef barbacoa tacos and all of the tostadas. The guacamole is fantastic.

    A bit pricey for your Average Joe, but the margaritas are strong and delicious. The chips and salsa are a great value and the queso is unreal!! Nice ambiance.

    A little pricey, but the tacos are AMAZING. Served on cute little silver plates. Margaritas are a little heavy on the tequila which I thoroughly enjoy! Definitely coming back.

    Margaritas are delicious and reasonably priced. Get the pork belly taco, skip the potato taco.

    Great ambiance, good service, quick food to the table, outdoor seating, and PLENTY of bike parking. Abbreviated menu, but they do everything well. Al la carte portions, so you don't leave TOO stuffed!

    The taco pastor is great but you'll need at least three for a good meal! Absolutely hated the pomegranate margarita (sent it back) but the mescal Paloma margarita was great!

    Tacos were okay. Goat and white fish tacos were interesting. A carne asada taco is desperately needed. Tortillas needed to be warmed. I expect it will get better with time.

    The rumors are true; get the queso fundido. You won't regret it...unless you hate cheese.
