I appreciate the vegetarian options on the menu. I wish I knew their hummus recipe as it tastes so wonderful. I love every soup I have tried there. Unique pizza options.

Donnie's provides great pizza, sandwiches, calzones, and music from local talent. Wednesday is open mic night for those that want to test their talent. Come in and have a drink, listen to your favorite band or solo artist, and participate in their many special events.

This is a campus bar, right near Millikin. It's small but has outdoor tables as well, which are great during the summer months. It's pretty much beer and pizza, although they have some great cocktails as well. We love thin pizza, and this is our favorite in town.

Donnie s started off with a bang. Their pizzas are amazing--much better than the pre-made pizzas you get at other places. The hummus is fantastic. Recently, I've been a bit disappointed in the overall experience of the place. The dough roller was out of order on our last visit, so we could not order pizza or calzones. I ordered a... More

My original review was about the "old" Donnie's, apparently has new owners. After stopping there, and discovering that the food and service were not as good, I felt guilty about my original review. No more daily specials, some popular items not available, did not get what I had ordered, not the great service, had to listen to a young man... More

We've been lunch at Donnie's for awhile now, and we love it. Great food, beer, service, and we absolutely love thin crust pizza made with fresh dough. Excellent friendly service, outstanding beer selection and nice atmosphere. You will like it I promise, although parking can sometimes be a challenge, just go around the block again.

I was very tempted to try the deep dish, but most reviews spoke highly of the thin. I usually prefer the thin anyways and went with it. The crust is extremely thin to look at, but doesn't feel like it as you eat it. The crust provides a good bite through without being cracker like. It had the right amount... More

I had been told by a friend they had good sandwiches. I was surprised atmosphere was great. It was relaxed and the food was excellent.

Ordered many different kinds of their thin crust pizza and it always has flavor and never disappoints. They have drink specials certain days also. Last time I went had the dank veggie thin crust and was tasty as usual with a good assortment of vegetables. Right by Millikin University.
