Being from Texas, we weren't so sure about going out for Mexican food in Colorado. We were pleasantly surprised at Donita's. We had fresh margaritas with actual lime juice, and not some pre-made sweet-n-sour and great fajitas. We will definitely go again next year when we visit.

We have a lot of Mexican restaurants in the south so my expectations are very high for this type of food. The food itself was average, but the service and atmosphere were great. A good place to dine after a day of sightseeing in the surrounding mountains. You can go to Gothic or head north out of town up to Lake Irwin. Nice picnic area at Lake Irwin and very scenic.

Donita's is our family "go to" place! Great food, great margaritas! We drive the 32 miles regularly to eat at Donita's. Many family celebrations have been enjoyed there. Try it!
