Worth a visit

Chicken strip & fat fries are awesome. Been around for about 50 years. Cash only, no ATM cards. On Garey across from Staters.

Although the Chicken is good here, the Ontario location when it comes to the livers and giblets is much better... since that is what I (if you like that as well)..... then Ontario is hands down better.

Donahoo's is deep fried and is delicious. I usually have the filets which as all white meat. Served with their seasoned potatoes wedges and a dinner roll.

We have seen this chicken place for decades and finally decided to try it. I phoned in an order so we would not have to wait for it when we picked it up. The actual restaurant is very run down and had a beggar in front of it who asked everyone for money who happened by. We went in and... More

We lived nearby for thirty years and never stopped. We were in the mood for same chicken where we didn't have to drive 15 miles. Decided to try this after reading the many positive comments. We purchase one order of the chicken strips with small container of cole slaw, Steak fries and a large biscuit (more like a popover). It... More

Great chicken...but this is a place that you don't want to eat at too often. Yes its delicious and there is plenty of food but its easily over a daily amount of calories in each order.

We are from Utah, but go to CA each year to visit family. We don't miss this place when we are down there. We go out of our way to visit because the fried chicken and fries are amazing. The rolls are soft and fluffy. You can't go wrong with this place. Beware they only take cash and have some... More

Donahoo's chicken is the best. Chicken strips are very filling and they have the best potatoe wedge fries. Don't forget the big biscuits

I have had the fried chicken, and it is delicious. I especially like the chicken tenders. They are boneless. Basically take out, but you can eat there if you want. I like to buy food to go to a concert or other picnic. The people who work there are very friendly.
