“Tasty, Tasty, Tasty”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

The best way to recommend this restaurant is by telling you that we travel from Texas to Crested Butte just for a meal at Donita's. We love CB, of course, but we start to crave this wonderful mexican food and find a reason for a long weekend. I can honestly say that I have loved everything that I have ever ordered. Always start with the queso - unlike any I've had anywhere else. I love the spinash enchiladas and guacamole tacos. Visit Donita's and enjoy!

“Still very good!”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

I have been to Donita's more times than I can count over the years. Our recent visit was very good. Donita's simply does a good job every time and consistently delivers good food at reasonable prices, year in and year out. The quality is still excellent and my favorite has always been the chiles rellonos, always good and fresh! They have some of the best salsa anywhere you would ever go. It can get crowded quickly, so arrive early!

“My Favorite Mexican Restaurant!”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

I love Mexican food and have been to Mexican restaurants in many cities. I lived in Houston for 14 years and loved the food there. But Donita's in Crested Butte is my favorite. The food is outstanding and the specials are creative and delicious. Skip the house margarita and go for the special. It is potent and tasty and made with 100% Agave tequila. Enjoy Kay's flowers in the summer and don't miss the original pressed tin ceiling in the dining area. And if it's busy, you can always belly-up to the bar and enjoy your meal there.

“Mexican food in Crested Butte!”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

I really enjoyed my visit to Donita's. Mexican food by far my favorite food. I found the service to be very friendly and prompt. The ceramic water jugs at the table were a lovely touch. The place is a little funky with a family atmosphere. The food is fresh and the margaritas are double for happy hour. Great place to fuel up after a few days of camping in Crested Butte!
