I admit that I'm spoiled. I lived less than three blocks from Donahoo's on Garey Avenue and had plenty of opportunities to enjoy their food. My favorite is the boneless chicken meal with fantastic fries, salad and a huge, doughy roll. Back in the day I always enjoyed getting a grape soda but times have changed, have to be satisfied...

Whenever we travel to Pomona, CA, we make sure we stop at Donahoo's for their chicken. It is by far the best chicken take-out, we have ever had. In fact, we shared some with the set-up crew of Pencils & Pixels at the LA County Fair in Pomona this year and they were pleasantly surprised! We have been visiting Donahoo's... More

Seriously! We were close by the area and this place have an overall 4 stars rating from Yelp, so why not, right? Wrong! First off, we might have missed it but this is only for TAKE OUTS. No place to eat here, no tables and etc.; 2 chairs for waiting area. Hence, we did consider leaving or moving to another... More

...the chicken was just overcooked. I ordered a half chicken and every piece was way too overcooked. The thigh shockingly was really rough. The people that work there were very friendly. I would maybe give them another chance because of that.

Must pick up a box of filet dinner with the cole slaw!!! I don't even know what else is on the menu because the food center of my brain says stick with what you know is good... 20 years later still ordering it just the same... bring your own napkins and condiments, kinda tight on those and the service rarely...

Fried chicken never tasted soo good. Lunch specials are priced right. Come with roll, salad of choice, and chicken filets.

I had heard about this place as it has been in Pomona for many years, but had never tried it. Well, we finally did. Dang, the chicken was good! It was tasty, not overcooked and lots of it. Be forewarned however, that this is take out only as there was no place to sit there. I did not know this... More
