“Went from first to worst!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012 via mobile

Wow how the mighty have fallen!! This used to be my favorite Mexican restaurant. Every time we were in town or even passing through we would go out of our way to eat here. Now it has some of the worst food and by far the worst service I have ever experienced!! Whoever is responsible for this travesty should be drug out in the streets and shot!! It is that bad. Never ever ever eat here unless the old owners come back!

“Catered for Graduation Party”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2012

We used Dona Rosa's for a graduation party that we were planning long distance. Carrie was great to work with - she was professional, always got back to me immediately whether by email or phone and the price was reasonable. The food was ready, and hot when they said it would be and was in pans we could keep warm in the oven. There was MORE than enough and it was excellent! We would definitely use them again if the need arose!

“The food and service was bad, No longer open”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

I ate there on two occasions. The food and service was terrible. I wondered at the time how they could stay in business. Well they didn't. Place has closed and now under new name and owner. Probably won't try it again. Much better mexican elsewere.

Authentic Mexican, good atmosphere, very popular and crowded. Worth going early to beat the crowd.

“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2012

Food was ok -- average Mexican cuisine but very small portions. Service was very good, however, and it's a cute little restaurant with a nice bar area. It's probably more of a nightlife hang out for college kids. A plus is that it wasn't very expensive at all -- two of us ate there for lunch for $15. Of course, that's without any drinks, appetizers, or desserts. I probably would not choose to eat there again.
