I lived in the area a long time ago, and one of my favorite places to eat was always Donita's. I had to see if the chicken chimichanga was still as good as I remembered it. It definitely was - this is some of the...More

The food is great, especially many of the specials. Kudos to the hiring manager - every time I have been there the servers have been awesome - friendly and helpful and fast. What more can you ask for?
