The Don'key


Hungry guests burro into border classics (forgive the pun) at this off-the-beaten-path Pasadena Tex-Mex shack (it really does look like a shack). Fajitas are the pride and joy here (chicken, pork, or beef, señor) but specialties range from beef & cheese-stuffed poblanos to roasted quail. Shrimp cocktail with pico de gallo? Interest peaked. After a few mojitos and signature “Don’Keyritas” (the happy hour is cheap enough to feel like highway robbery) your brain won’t be the only thing fried: scoops of vanilla ice cream are rolled in cornflakes before being dipped in hot oil and served.
