I know it's under new ownership...It's going to be reopening soon after being done over...This place was it for a late night snack or lunch...Best cheese burgers, fries and onion rings on the planet...I know the new owner and he is anxious to get it going...When it does stop by and see Craig...You won't be sorry...

Can't call it a restaurant because it's a lunch wagon that stays put. IMHO they make the best burgers in town. They have just added other items to their menu, but I'm stuck on the BIG ONE. A double burger w/cheese and if you want them, sautéed onions and red pepper relish.

Love this place for a late night burger fix any time of year. Grab a burger, fries and Pepsi - it doesn't get any better than that!

Dons lunch always hits the spot! If you are a burger fan, the "big one" is fantastic! I am also a big fan of the clam cake burgers.

This place is a local icon. It used to be open from late night to early morning... Not sure of the hours now. Stopped by on a whim after not eating here for years. Toppings were the same, but meat in the burger was not. Fries were bagged "fast food" fries. Not sure that "don's lunch" is the same when... More

Haven't stopped at Don's in years. Drove by around noon and decided to pull in. Ordered their double cheeseburger - $4.00. Absolutely delicious and quick. Limited menu of burgers - dogs and French fries. Definitely will return. If you are driving thru downtown Westbook looking for a terrific quick burger, give Don's a shot.

Stopped in for lunch. Very limited menu. Had a cheeseburger. Tasted like something off McDonalds $ menu. Wife had a clam burger. Said it was just okay. People not welcoming.
