“Good Food in a Strange Looking Building”

Dona Marie Restaurant
Price range: $5 - $10
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed February 8, 2011

This place has good food...nothing extraordinary...but good. I especially like the cheese crisp...it's off the menu...but it is tasty...a large crispy flour tortilla, smothered in tasty bubbling cheese topped with sour cream and guacamole...yum! Their margaritas are good...but, once again, nothing extraordinary.

The restaurant looks like it is situated in an old IHOP restaurant...the type that had the large inverted V-shaped roof. It DOES NOT look like a Mexican restaurant at all! There is absolutely no Mexican atmosphere inside at all. Except for the bar area, it feels like an old IHOP!

The other problem I had was with service. Sure, Mexican restaurants hire Mexicans but usually they do know English. I had trouble communicating with some of the help here and I think that is why I had some problems with my order. Please...if you are working in an area that speaks mostly English...please hire people that know English!

one of my wife's favorite places. I've only had the burritos; and only as take out; but they have all been worth the money.
