We have eaten here several times as well. Food is always good service is usually good. Really have only had one poor service experience.

Cudos to the hiring manager (Kate??). We went there several times and the staff were all excellent (especially Heli and Dave). They have a killer happy hour special margarita! Excellent food and specials. Easy to get to (right in the heart of "downtown") and accessible...More

Great food in an awesome atmosphere. We had a party there for about 50 people. Some of us arrived early, but were immediately welcomed by Hele, one of the owners. The service was prompt. I love Tex-Mex food and Donita's did not disappoint.

We couldn't visit CB and not go back to Donita's. It's still a favorite in town with great food and the bartender was friendly and did not disappoint; his margs pack a punch.

Great menu. We had three couples and each couple split their special salad and special dinner. What a treat! Reasonably priced.

We ordered the fajitas with three meat options: chicken, steak, and shrimp. They were amazing, quite possibly the best batch of fajitas we've ever had! Donita's is a MUST have during each and every trip to Crested Butte. The food is excellent and the staff...More
