My review of "Donks" Mexican Food Restaurant located on Michigan Street.
Normally for my fast food Mexican fix I would go to Adobe at Leonard and Fuller, but today I decided to try out "Donks" which is in a repurposed "Hot-n-Now" location. It was about 1 in the afternoon on Saturday - not a car in the lot, not a customer in the eat-in area. Placed my order for a wet burrito, asked if it came with chips, was told I could order as a meal and get a drink plus a side. I did, assuming that I would get chips with my side of beans and drink, but apparently chips are considered a side so even though I specifically asked to get chips my mis-understanding didn't click with the order taker and I ended up with no chips. I asked the guy what their hours are basically just making small talk, he stood there like a deer caught in headlights and finally looked around until he spotted the door which has the hours on it - sorry dude I really didn't mean to throw you a stumper. The total was $9.01, I got 99 cents in change - really dude, you can't let me slide for a penny? So I got my food and took it home - what a disappointment. The sauce on the wet burrito, if it's NOT Campbells Tomato soup it has me fooled. The beef was bland, bland, bland. Tortilla was soggy and tasteless. The lettuce was crisp, but that was the only other ingredient I could see, were there tomatoes? Onions? Anything else? Don't think so.
I can't imagine any scenario that would get me back into the doors of "Donks." They will be short lived, I would advise the owners to get out of the business before they lose any more of their money.
