It's also the smoking room so you don't have to go outside into the cold. Nice touch.

Under 200#? Free? Gosh, I would get in at no cost but would I want to?

What is he offering? Buffet? Finger foods? I wish somebody would tell us.

If the weather's bad I won't be going out anywhere through. Fat free or not!!

I have ate at Donnie's several times lately and I want everyone to know that me and my family love the food. I have had several things on the menu and each time I have loved it. The service is top notch. The atmosphere is friendly. I have never saw anyone act uncivilized. I have been in the restrooms and they are clean. I do not know what this person that is trashing Donnie and his family has against them but it sounds pretty personal. His food and service will speak for itself. However he does his hair is his business. Each and everytime we have went there his hair is pulled back and he has on a hat. The only way I would say to not go is if you do not like to have good food, service that is top notch and a friendly atmosphere. To me that sums it up that is what that I have experienced each time. It is ashame that someone tries to trash a business like this when they are trying hard to serve there customers so well. I have been to places that really deserve to be talked about for bad service but this is not one of them. Everyone needs to try Donnie's Place.

"have ate there" - I don't know that your well-written recommendation will win any points. Nothing personal.

How clean is that hat he has on his head with the ponytail?

It doesn't matter. It's one of the few places left in town to eat and the only place to sit and drink a beer so his clientele are solid. I prefer drive thru these days (cold days) and don't bother getting out of the car for any meal. Maybe by summer he will have something going that will get his name out there better. I bet half the town has never even gone back under there. Another thing I'll share is I do eat out a fair bit and I only stopped at this place one time two years ago. It was not good and I never went back. Don't you think he should do something to drum up business besides promoting drinking games?

I'm not sure where all of the "haters" have been eating, but it really must not be Donnie's Place. I myself know several respectable people in the community who go there for lunch and dinner several times a week. That includes, DR's, Lawyers, Dentists, so forth so on. So if you all of you are so much better than the above listed ppl, than my apologies. I eat there myself on a weekly basis, the food is good, the staff is beyond friendly, and Donnie goes above and beyond to make each customer feel welcome and appreciated. If you have something against him or his business, you obviously were kicked out at some point in time for starting trouble. I don't know of any other place that you can go and get food that good at his prices. Try getting a Donnie quality steak at any steakhouse for 16.99! Not gonna happen! You will pay at least $20.00, your steak is NOT going to be cooked the way you ordered it, and it's going to taste like cardboard. I refuse to order steak from any other restaurant now. I honestly don't know how the man makes any profit!!!! As far as liquor, go ahead, go to another bar and pay someone $10.00 for a watered down drink. At Donnie's you get the liquor you're paying for, and then some. As far as his looks or hygiene, what does it matter, he's not cooking your food for ONE and for TWO I'm sure if we actually saw some of you, we'd know you don't shower on a regular basis either. I'm not saying that there hasn't been problems there before, and there may be in the future. But at present time, Donnie's place is the best restaurant in our area and that includes Bluefield!!!
good food

Donnie is not concerned about getting any biz from this post. Anyone that knows anything about his place knows what good food and service he has to offer.I dont think any decent business person worries about the trash talkers on here.I mean come on.Who takes this stuff serious?
okay

Selling liquor is very profitable. Don't worry about this guy going broke on lower-priced steaks.

I don't know where to begin.

$20 for a steak dinner? where else are you eating? cardboard or not? respectable people? dentists? lawyers? you make me laugh. if the only thing he can have your brag about are drinks that aren't watered down, well, I can't refute that. that's his claim to fame.

to quote "I'm not saying that there hasn't been problems there before, and there may be in the future." which should speak volumes. I don't think I want to be there in the 'future' because I have been there in the past.
what a nasty place

You need to grow the fuck up, if you don't like it then go somewhere else. His booze are not watered down, if you sat at the bar you would see them make it. Also about the tab, then maybe you shouldn't start one there. Grow up and get a life!!!!!

Peace Out!!!!

I went to Donnie's before the name changed and it was terrible. All the Swords were there and it took over an hour to get food - any food, which turned out to be just awful. I haven't been back nor do I plan on it. It's about the only place to sit down and drink a beer in this town though, do you realize that? Unless you want to park your truck under some tree out of sight from local law and drink your six pack. Shame Frog Level closed.
Main St Cafe is just overpriced and not very
"warm", food not all that great but it's clean. Maybe the owners should decide to concentrate on either producing institutional grade food (they do that VIP room behind Grant's too), trucking or convenience stores. The last two have contributed to the junkiness of the area - take a look at their "depot" at all their junked semis. Can't they sell those for scrap and clean it up? I don't find bright lights of a gas and go to be the epitome of community betterment either.
Yong's is one of the best places to eat not just in Tazewell but area-wide with a totally different atmosphere from Donnie's.
YOU ARE EXACTLY RIGHT..... AND BY THE WAY YONG'S IS CHANGING NAMES TO "TOP HAT" PUTTING IN A FULL AFTERHOURS BAR I HEAR... AND THE GIRLS THAT WORK THERE ARE BEAUTIFUL.:) SO MAYBE WE ALL WILL HAVE A PLACE TO CHILL WITH A GRAND PIANO AND A THREE PIECE BAND SOON I CAN'T WAIT.. UNTILL THEN ILL BE A PATRON AT DONNIES I HAVE KNOWN HIM MY WHOLE LIFE AND FOR THE MOST PART HE JUST SITS AROUND AND SMILES.. QUIT HATIN
