Went early with grand kids... wait staff is good with kids and there is a mini playground immediately adjacent to the open all sides .. Filet steakettes cooked on a hot rock at the table was interesting .. shrimp skewers also good.

Every dish was delicious, with the real taste of mexican comfort food. Portions are really big Service is excellent. Sergio for sure is the best asset of this restaurant. You must try pozole blanco and agua de horchata, both are delicious

We had six adults and five children under 4 and they bent over backwards to make us feel like we were welcome. The food was very good and the prices very reasonable.

We had dinner at Dona Tere last evening. What a treat. The staff are lots of fun and very attentive. We had the two for one ribs, which is a great deal,and they are very good. There were seven of us, and a good dinner and time was had by all.

We showed up around 5 and we were starvin Marvin! They were out of oysters, lobster and there is something else I am forgetting that they were out of also. Sammy, the waiter, super great.
