Certainly not fully authentic, but some interesting dishes that were tasty. Friendly service, good prices, nice bar and right on the main drag.

Stopped here to ask if they could prepare food to go as we had our dogs with us. They instead gave us a table tucked in a corner so we could eat there. Bartender was our server and he could not have been more attentive...More

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

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.
