Sara waited on my wife and I. She was friendly and her service was perfect. I believe she is a manager/owner of this restaurant. You cannot ask for better service than that! My wife and I are trying to reduce the "bad carbs" we consume. However lucky for me, the Huevos Rancheros fit our new eating habits. We are also... More

We had a great lunch at Don Pollo. Don't be fooled that this is just Mexican food they also have good country cooking here to like country fried steak or chicken. The service was also great!

the sign out front is much more sophisticated than the inside is. The inside is much more casual and, typical of Mexican restaurants, too colorful. Still, we are here for the food and so the special of shrimp and grits was very tasty. The service was friendly and prompt.

Try Don Pollo for breakfast. You will be coming back over and over again, I do! The food is great and the menu is vast. There are great Southern and Mexican dishes. The employees and owners are friendly to everyone. You never have to look for a parking spot, since they have a huge parking lot behind the restaurant. The... More

Southern style meals as well as Mexican dishes. 97 health department rating. My favorite is the country fried steak as a breakfast or a dinner. Great sides to... More

We've eaten here about 5-6 times over the past couple years....don't live in Dahlonega but frequently drive over for this place and a few others. More laid-back, less flashy atmosphere than some of the other Mexican restaurants in the area. The music on Friday nights is a plus for us, but it may not be for millennials or the under-40... More

I might not be able to ever pronounce Huevos Rancheros correctly, but I love them! My wife usually just orders a couple of scrambled eggs and wheat toast; but her curiosity finally got the best of her after she has watched me ravenously consume the Rancheros over and over again, weekend after weekend; and finally asked to try some. She... More

Our waiter was so kind an helpful. They did everything in a timely manner and our food portions were HUGE! I loved it. It is also extremely delicious :) I think a lot of people don't go there just because of the abundance of mexican restaurants in town near it, but this place is awesome! Definitely wortha try!

Don Pollo is one of Dahlonega's hidden gems. It is located on the edge of the square and has lots of free parking behind the restaurant. The food is perfectly prepared and the service is very friendly. Juan waited on us this week and he was awesome! My wife and I just love this place since it has a very... More
