“Delicious Mexican Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Donita's was excellent with service, food and atmosphere. We were seated right away with friendly service. Fajitas were awesome! The restaurant is located in an old hotel and the atmosphere is quaint and family-friendly. Windows opened to the main street! A little pricey but would eat here again!

“Disappointed This Time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

When we are visiting Crested Butte, we always stop here for dinner. We were there at 5 pm when the restaurant opened and were seated immediately. Our waitress was helpful, but then she got other larger tables and forgot us. The assistants to the wait staff were more attentive and gave us refills. We had to ask for the check and then waited and waited for the waitress to return. The food seems ordinary any more. Probably will find another location the next time we are in town.

“Great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

This wasn't a huge place, but boy can they cook! Everything our table had was so good! I had an enchilada/chili relleno combo plate. Yum! Try the green chili sauce. Big servings - you won't leave hungry. Great service - even on a busy Friday night! Well worth the stop and definitely a new favorite!
