With a fare that is more Mexican than Tex- Mex, Dona Anita's is a well-known Mexican restaurant in the area that relies on tried-and-true recipes, good old-fashioned and friendly service, and relaxing atmosphere for a satisfying Mexican food experience.

went for first time a couple weeks ago. Salsa was great, was a little disappointed in their service and thought it was a little pricey.

Just enjoyed a great meal and phenomenal service at Dona Anita's! Stephanie and the crew were so helpful, cheerful and attentive! My husband and I shared the Chef sampler so we could save room for a sopapilla! Truly enjoyed the whole experience, if you are in Midland, TX be sure to stop in!

It's rare I go to a restaurant and be 100% pleased. I'm from Houston and we know how to do Mexican food and this place blew them all away.

I haven't eaten here is a while but the food was always good when I've eaten there. The family was always there keeping an eye on things and making sure the customers are happy. I love Mexican food and Dona Anita's is one of my favorites places to eat.

There is nothing fancy about this restaurant, but it serves great food and you don't need to wait very long to get it. A would agree with another reviewer who mentioned that the chii rellenos should not be missed.

They have the best queso in town period. My favorite is red beef enchiladas but I still haven't tried something I haven't liked.

The cheese chili rellenos have always been my favorite! Very friendly folks! Chips and salsa are great! Chalupas are a good choice also.

I got the feeling this was going to be good as soon as I walked in the door. Nothing fancy but it just had the look and the smell of my kind of Mexican food joint. I really liked the Salsa. Fresh and had just the right "bite". Chips were fresh. Beer was cold. Food was really tasty and service... More
