I give respect when respect is due. I like Donna's Restaurant for the fact that they started as a local establishment and have been able to expand and spawn a total of 5 locations in the South Florida. However, with time and growth, the quality and taste of the food has diminished. The robust flavors you expect from Jamaican food has now been replaced by "bland", mediocre tasting food. With their lunch special prices, you can often looks past that for a good deal, but their lunch special isn't so special anymore with a recent price increase.

More often than not, if you come here, you will probably be ordering take-out since it is not the most pleasant of dining atmosphere. So, I'm a bit perplexed by the spotty service; sometimes you get someone nice, sometimes you don't. It shouldn't be so hard to be nice with very minimal customer interaction. Its as simple as this: smile, take order, pack food, hand receipt and say thanks for coming.
This is South Florida! Jamaican food is on every corner so at least look someplace else before deciding to eat here. It isn't all that spectacular.
