Mediocre food and ambiance. Seems like a place that has't changed in 30 years. Cafeteria silverware. One server said to another, as they passed our table, "I'm so sick of this place." I couldn't blame him.

We’re from Texas, pretty particular about Mexican food. We had guacamole and tacos, very good! The Margarita special was fantastic and a happy hour bargain. Helly, our waitress was excellent! Will go again this trip!

A long time local favorite, Donita's serves excellent Tex-Mex, with large amounts, and a fun staff. Must try the Sopapilla Sundae! (If you still have room)

We ate so much we had to crawl back to our motel! This place was recommended by the desk clerk, we went twice! Such friendly staff, great food, water carafes on the table were a nice touch. Carnitas, enchiladas, tacos...oh my. Don't miss this gem.
