The muffins, preloaded with butter have to be eaten before you get home. You will always take it home because there is nowhere to sit or eat inside. Order it fast, pay cash, wait briefly, and they hand you a hot bag filled with fried chicken. All the sides are great, try all the sauces too.

This place has been around forever, as the giant, 50's signage including a huge rooster statue testifies to. People come here from all over the Pomona Valley, and the aroma of fried chicken can dominates the senses for a block or two in every direction. I think they've been serving the exact same thing for…well since they opened way back... More

Best fried chicken! But the rolls are to die for! The rolls can last 2 days. They're huge. Better than anywhere I've ever eat!

The chicken has a special taste. The food was cooked for us while we waited. It was sure worth the wait. Great quantity and quality

This place is a definite hole. I went here on the advice of a friend and was glad I did. The chicken was amazing and the rolls add ten pounds by simply looking at them, but the place is scary (location and looks).

I remember eating Donahoo's a kid, but I don't remember it being THIS good. I was back in the area for a quick visit and remembered the sign when we drove by. While my husband (not a fried chicken fan) was in a meeting the next day, I decided to grab a box of chicken for lunch. I ordered the... More

Donahoo's Chicken is very tasty. It is not as greasy as other fried chickens I have tasted. Plenty of sides to choose from.
