Highlights

Al Castaneda greets his customers with a hug. Popular among many diners. Outdoor patio. The reason he called is that he found out that you have unfortunately misrepresented the type of food that they serve (they serve ""Fine Mexican Food"" not American food). And how credible can that be considering that you listed Dona Esther's as an American food restaurant, when they actually serve ""Fine Mexican Food?"" We noticed that you had the days listed with no hours printed next to the days, and in the delivery column, perhaps you could list the fact that they do large scale catering and also have take-out service. They do have a full service liquor bar, outdoor patio, live music on Friday evenings and seating for over one hundred fifty diners. By the way, they do serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. I can tell you that my own personal rating would be a solid three stars. Their food is great and the service is unsurpassed, and that's amazing considering they serve very affordable meals and large portions. Actually, you should stop by and enjoy a meal yourself. I am sure once you've eaten there, you will agree with me, Dona Esther's is a ""Fine Mexican Food Restaurant. Dining for 150. Sincerely, John M.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The waitress was too quick to expect us to order. Few other patrons were there. My husband's rice and beans were served cold and even when "reheated," they were not warmed throughout. Our food was adequate, but nothing special.
