Some of the best Mexican I have had. Fresh ingredients, attention to detail in preparation and presentation. And quick competent service. Very good prices. What more can I say

In 1988 I was on a temporary assignment in Gunnison, CO and used to go up to Crested Butte. A lot has changed in 28 years, but I was so happy that Donitas was still there and their salsa is still the best. Wish it...More

Although this is not nearly the best food I've ever had at a restaurant, it is the best I had in Crested Butte. The food was pretty good, though I could have done with a little less cheese in my chimichanga. (and I love cheese)...More

A Donita's customer since the very beginning, it's like home cooking for my family and me. The happy & inviting staff, great service along with generous portions of great food (they're always more than willing to accommodate for vegan/vegetarian/gluten-free) makes Donita's Cantina our go-to place.

One of our go too restaurants when we are in Crested Butte. Excellent Mexican food with a flair. Service is always friendly and efficient. This place should be on your go to list.

The salsa is more tomato than anything else. The house margarita was okay and the food average. I had a chicken salad and my husband had a chimichanga. Prices average for the town.

It was the only place open late so we gave it a shot. I can't say it's bad, just weird. The server convinced us to try the special which was an enchilada with butternut squash and peanut sauce, Mexican fusion anyone? It was odd, very...More

The queso is a must here. It is so good and unlike anything I have ever had before. My favorite is the guacamole taco on a flour tortilla and a spinach enchilada. The guacamole is fresh and tasty. Finished the dinner with a homemade peach...More
