“Great value anytime”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2011

During our 4 days in Zacatecas we tried most of the menu items and they were all great. Our favorites were arroz con mole, puerco (pork) and napolitos (careful it's spicy). At 10 or 12 pesos each you cannot go wrong

“Great quick inexpensive local food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2011

After reading the reviews, we just had to try Dona Julia and we were not disappointed.

Menu choices are plentiful. Service is fast. Food is great. Price is right (10 or 12 pesos each depending on order). We tried five different flavors between the four of us and we were all pleased. We had two each which was plenty. We had a big meal the night before and were not looking to be overly full.

“Fabulous Fast Food!”

Great fresh Gorditas at great prices in the heart of the City. Enjoyed the rice with mole. Sometimes they have live entertainment. A popular place to relax and have a nice meal!

“Tradtional Food from Zacatecas...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2009

This is the fast food of Zacatecas, it's also a traditional taste of the region and the different options for stuffing reflect this fact.. Multiple locations of this local chain abound and you can count on a flavorful and very filling meal, not to mention very affordable one too. Try the chile rojo or chicharrones and you are eating what generations of Zacatecans have eaten. No MCD's around here, YAY! Fresh masa pockets with great fillings.... lovely!

“great value for gorditas”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2009

There are multiple locations around the town.
Think of a gorditas as a mexican pita. A tortilla that is sliced open and stuffed.

There are approx 10 different stuffings, many looking like stews and they cost $9 mx. They vary from mild to spicy and may contain chicken, pork, cheese or be totally veggie. Four is a good size meal.

Refresco (pop) is $10mx.
