Its been there forever and the iconic chicken high atop the building is very well known and actually historical!

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.

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 large buttered dinner roll, and your choice... 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
