Fresh, lively and energetic, the Spotted Donkey Cantina at el Pedregal is a Scottsdale original. Offering the best drinks, unique food and a festive atmosphere are quickly earning Spotted Donkey Cantina at el Pedregal a reputation as the place to dine in North Scottsdale.<br /><br />The restaurant's North Scottsdale location provides a fabulous backdrop of 12-million-year-old rock formations and you can catch the Arizona sky creating a stunning atmosphere on our large outdoor patio.<br /><br />Best Happy Hour 2012 | AZ Centrals Readers Choice Awards<br />Best Mexican Food 2013 | Arizona Foothills Magazine

"Patio dining difficult-sole flood light casted terrible shadows. Hard to see what you're eating in the dark.
Two of us ordered the Enchiladas de Mariscos, a dish my friend orders every time we dine here together. Mariscos? Within the 2 enchiladas on the plate (I think 2, it was dark out there!) I literally found 1 shrimp in each cheesy roll. The first one I ate but thought it tasted "not fresh". I found the second one and it had that same dry, salty, "off" taste. That one I had to spit out. The crab? Maybe I tasted a hint of it. Not sure.
Our server (who was great) took off one of the $23 entrees from the bill, but the manager never came out to ask how everything was. I will go back but will not order this dish again."
