Donita's has closed but thanks for the memories starting in 1987 and beyond. Good food. Great service. Huge portions. After a long bike ride in the surrounding hills nothing could be better than dinner at Donita's.

I am sorry to see them close. They had the best Margarita's and great fresh food. Service was alway's great! It will be hard to find a better Mexican restaurant in this area. Our family have been going to Donita's Cantina , for over 35...year's. Thank you Kay & Heli Mae , for all the memories. " Life is Good " . It's your time to enjoy it..More

Donita’s has announced they are closing effective the evening of Sept 29,2019. This will be a loss to Crested Butte as they were always a good place to eat.

Friday night dinner wait was about 20 mins. The place was packed with locals. Cheese Enchiladas with red sauce were ok, rice was so-so. The big winner was the veggie fajitas, with a huge fresh variety and generous portion! Took lots home for leftovers.

Good Mexican food, my family thought it was really good food, and liked the margaritas. We are Mexican food snobs as our family roots are from Mexico and Mom cooked some really, really good Mexican food.

Stopped in as soon as we got to town. Crazy busy but staff was on point. Shared combination fajitas. The margaritas were good, as was the food. Staff was the best part of the experience.

We had a group of 9 and they accommodated us well. The hostess and waiter were exceptionally kind to us and the service was great. We had fajitas, enchiladas and an assortment of other Mexican food. It was all tasty and the kids enjoyed as...well as the adults. Great place to eat while in Crested Butte!More
