Excellent Fried Chicken and Chicken Strips

I love their fried chicken, crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Whenever I'm in the area I always have to stop by and purchase some of their food. The chicken is always fried perfectly, it's never overcooked or undercooked, it's just right. Included in your order are seasoned fries, a... read more

I always get the filets here they are boneless white chicken meat tender and juicy. The seasonings here are the best in fried chicken I have had next to Grandmas down home southern cooking. The fries are kept in a warming hopper and it does them little justice, I recommend the cole slaw but it can be over sweetened sometimes.... More

It's been some months since I've gotten to enjoy Donahoo's Chicken, we moved to neighboring Chino which isn't really far away but we've been exploring restaurants nearer to home. Had Donahoo's Golden Chicken today, still delicious! A filet dinner can easily be split by two people and we added an extra salad so for under fifteen bucks we had a... More

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.
