I loved the coziness of Donatas. I had fajitas and they were yummy. Great chips and salsa. Service was good.

I Love this place, besides skiing eating here is on the top of my list of places to go in Crested Butte. Best salsa I have ever ate, Chimichangas are outstanding, every thing that we have had here was great! Should be rated #1 in Crested Butte.

Donita's is our go-to for Mexican every time we visit Crested Butte. They have a large variety of options on their menu that are sure to please anyone. The service was excellent and the owner is super friendly!

Came with a crowd of grownups and kids. They have a kids' menu, which is especially nice in a Mexican restaurant. Everyone was happy. What more could you want?

We ate here last week for a ski trip and the food was great. They brought out different habenero hot sauces since I like spicy food. My wife had the special. Margaritas were great. Service was awesome.

After reading reviews of this place, I figured that they had great "Colorado" mexican food. Chips were stale, sausa (which is usually a good indicator of the rest of the meal) was mediocre, Should have stopped there, but ordered our meals. green chile was less than mediocre. Meal was served warm. Was disappointed.

The atmosphere here is somewhat eclectic compared to your standard Mexican restaurant. The service was good and our food was served quickly and piping hot. My wife had the Taco salad with ground meat that she enjoyed. I had the Carne Asada fajitas which were served sizzling and the steak was cooked as ordered. We will go back to this... More

This is a fine, generic Mexican food restaurant. Being from Texas, we have pretty high standards for Mexican food and eat it quite a bit. The food here is not bad, but nothing special either.

If you are in CB and you're needing a little 'kick start' to your fading day stop in here for a margarita. You will not be disappointed! They have Happy Hour too!
