No pretensions here - just good bbq at great prices. Beef ribs were about half the price of fancier places. This is a family run place and very friendly. Felt like many of their customers were locals.

Stopped here before a flight out, as I wanted one last meal of good old Texas BBQ. This was in view and near the airport (about 11 miles) so I swung into the lot and went inside. I had the Briskett and Turkey and wasn't disappointed in either one. Turkey was moist and had a good smoke to it, Briskett... More

Wow... Off the charts brisket... Super nice people working here. A bit expensive, kinda dumpy inside but clean (outdated) Even the customers are really friendly. Never a long wait like some places in Austin, the BBQ is top notch. Cheers

We were a fairly large group who met at Donn's for breakfast. The guys mostly ordered tacos and they were all ok with their food. I ordered 2 eggs, scrambled, and was very specific about the way I wished it made, with no sides. I got it just the way I wanted it. Extra points for listening. It was early,... More

We stopped here on our way home from the airport. Food portions were fair. The girl that waited on us wasn't very helpful or enthusiastic. I asked if chopped chicken was chicken off the bone cut into pieces instead I received a pulled/shredded chicken sandwich with the meat mixed with bbq sauce. Our second order was brisket. It was tender... More

Very popular place for the locals, so it can get a bit busy. Menu is pretty straight forward.. The girl working the register was very unexcited to be working there. But the cooks were nice. Otherwise, standard little BBQ dive. I've had better, but certainly worse.

This was my first visit to Donn's. I ordered the brisket plate with mac & cheese and fried okra with sweet tea to drink. For dessert, I had a slice of sweet potato pie. The sliced brisket was moist with a good flavor. It comes with a small cup of BBQ sauce but the honey BBQ sauce in bottles on... More

I like to come here for breakfast tacos and occasionally pulled-pork. The pulled-pork is good, but the breakfast tacos are what I want to write about! The chorizo and egg comes with a hefty amount of chorizo and two is more than enough to fill you up! Extra items are only a quarter so go ahead add cheese to that!

My wife and I were Googling a quick BBQ place to stop by on our way from Austin-Bergstrom Int'l airport to Round Rock, and choose this because of it's proximity to 130 tollway. Very friendly down home atmosphere, with great service. I loved the smoked sausage, though my wife wasn't crazy about what she ordered, though I thought it was... More

We stop by for some barbecue on a Monday night and we were the only people in the place. We placed our order and had a seat. We received our food fairly quickly and enjoyed it once it arrived. I had the ribs and my wife had the brisket. Both were very good. The sides were generally decent as well.... More
