This restaurant closed several weeks ago. Sorry to say, a local landmark restaurant had to close due to a slow holiday season and exterior maintenance which required a much-longer-than-necessary closure and the owners decided to make the closure permanent.

Been aware of Don & Dona's for many years but this was our first lunch visit. Everyone was friendly and the service was very good. The food was very ordinary but tasted good. Felt it was a little on the expensive side. High expectations based...More

I've been eating at Don & Dona's for 17 years. The food is home cooked!!! Hamburgers are the "best", with fresh meat (not frozen). A1/3 pound is a 1/3 pound, unlike fast food. The biscuits and gravy is excellent. My favorites: beef manhatten, tenderloins, philly...More

Went to this place today for a July 4th breakfast. First time. I have heard mixed reviews of the joint. It was fabulous! The best biscuits & sausage gravy I have ever had! Even though they were very busy, the staff was exceptionally courteous.

all these comments about how much better it is being smoke free, how about the people that come in that have enough perfume on to choke a horse....much rather have the smoke and I don't smoke.

Dining at Don & Donna's is like stepping back in time. The food is good, the staff are usually very quick to wait on you and always friendly. Where else can you get a great meal, whether it is a plate lunch or sandwich, and...More
