Whatever kind of meat you want, they have it. Their plates are amazing with their awesome sides, and the best tea with lemon. Brisket tacos are a bomb-goodPrices are a bit high but the food makes up for that. They are fast and friendly and...More

Decent BBQ, but nothing to write home about. Sides are ok, but again pretty average. The place is a bit dark and does not lend it'self to sticking around much after consuming your food. People are nice enough, but do not go out of their...More

This place is near our AB&b. Local spot huge crowds and noisy. Food is good and hot. Place is clean. Long wood tables. Must be well known lots of local PD officers.

No pretensions here - just good bbq at great prices. Beef ribs were about half the price of fancier places. This is a family run place and very friendly. Felt like many of their customers were locals.

Wow... Off the charts brisket... Super nice people working here. A bit expensive, kinda dumpy inside but clean (outdated) Even the customers are really friendly. Never a long wait like some places in Austin, the BBQ is top notch. Cheers

We stopped here on our way home from the airport. Food portions were fair. The girl that waited on us wasn't very helpful or enthusiastic. I asked if chopped chicken was chicken off the bone cut into pieces instead I received a pulled/shredded chicken sandwich...More

Very popular place for the locals, so it can get a bit busy. Menu is pretty straight forward.. The girl working the register was very unexcited to be working there. But the cooks were nice. Otherwise, standard little BBQ dive. I've had better, but certainly...More

This was my first visit to Donn's. I ordered the brisket plate with mac & cheese and fried okra with sweet tea to drink. For dessert, I had a slice of sweet potato pie. The sliced brisket was moist with a good flavor. It comes...More
