Tastefully decorated with saltillo tile floors and a huge copy of a Diego Rivera mural, the Gulfgate Doneraki is one of the best-looking Tex-Mex restaurants in town. Like all classic Tex-Mex operations, Doneraki claims its chips and hot sauce, chile con queso, fajitas and cheese-stuffed jalapeños are "authentic Mexican." Bless their hearts.
