Donna diner is a great place for breakfast, I haven't eaten lunch so I'm not sure about that. It is an diner from out of the past, just how small town diners should be in my opinion. Friendly waitresses and the owner is usually there. It is real home cookin

We have eaten here numerous times and are never disappointed! I love their grilled tenderloin as a dinner or sandwich. I order the half tenderloin because the regular one is HUGE. They have daily specials and when they have fried chicken it is great! Haven't ever had a bad meal here. My grandchildren love to come to Donna's too. Try... More

Donnas has had several locations and has seemed to land here. They have a wide selection of "home-cookin' " options for both breakfast and lunch. My favorite is the HUGE fried pork tenderloin sandwich and fries. However, the place alllows smoking in part of the restaurant so everything reeks of smoke. I get take-out here frequently.

Best breakfast in town, the Ham is real bone in country ham. The pork chops on the dinner menu are also very good. Linda is so special.

The first impression when you walk in the door is cigarette smoke. It stinks in here. No smoking in the back but the wood paneling is impregnated with the smell. The food and service were good. The furniture broken down.

We we're passing through the area when I came across this restaurant in Trip Advisor. Donna's Diner is the ultimate hole in the wall dive. This place is very run down, allows smoking (which is a major turn-off) but is reasonably priced, delicious food, huge portions and if you leave hungry it's your own fault. Our server was great too.... More

I've ate there several times and have never been disappointed. One word of caution: don't order the chicken fried steak unless you are ready to eat and can eat a lot. Everything there is no frills down home cooking like your mama makes. I eat there when in Harryville because that's where all the locals eat........enough said.
