My daughter (a student at the university) actually recommended this place to us. I went for lunch with some family members, and we all enjoyed it. The place was relatively empty when we got there, but it was perfect, because we were served quickly and our food came out right away. We had a thin crust pizza, another thin (gluten free) crust pizza, and the chili. The Mexicali pizza and the gluten free crust were both fantastic! It was a good recommendation for sure.

Donnie's pizza is tasty and there are plenty of options for toppings. It is located near Millikin University and has a comfortable, college pizza place vibe. The day we were there they were out of their homemade ranch salad dressing. I understand that they are often out of key ingredients, which is why I cannot rate them higher. A friend of mine went there once when they were out of pizza dough. Really?? Nevertheless, it is a good choice for pizza if you are in Decatur.

I've eaten lunch at Donnie's many times, and when I have a day long planning meeting with business associates this is where I take them for lunch. The pizza is good and the beer selection is good and thoughtful. It's kind of an old hippie type place, so if you're looking for something upscale or "urban professional" this might not be your best choice. I have always found Donnie's to have friendly and attentive service, good food, and good beer. That is a winning combination from my perspective. Recommended.

Donnie’s Homespun Pizza is decent, but nothing spectacular. The thin crust pizza is thin enough to see through. The sauce is average and lacks zest. Multiple toppings are available and justifiably so, in order to cover up this sub-par pizza. Donnie’s doesn’t cut their pizza like a pie, but rather into ridiculous little squares. No one has told the proprietor that it’s called pizza pie, not pizza squares. The highlight for Donnie’s is a nice variety of craft beers, bottled and draught. Prices are average for Decatur, IL and the Oakwood Avenue community. Service is slow and awkward. This is a try it once and be done with it establishment.

Donnie's is a must have while in Decatur. Their pizza is so good! The service is exceptional. You have to wait a little bit for your pizza, but it is worth it!! You can't go wrong with any pizza you order. The atmosphere is very lively, with a college nearby. I would come back again, and I would recommend!
