Vegetarian Friendly - Edit

Good food. Quite a few vegetarian options. Very limited vegan options. I called one day to ask if their black bean burger had egg in it. They had already thrown the packaging away, so they couldn't tell me for sure. They really need to offer more vegan options on their menu.

Updated from previous review on 2018-03-11

Pros: Cute little joint with lots of atmosphere., Sitting outside in warmer weather., Live music available on select days.

Cons: Not enough vegan options., Staff can be inattentive., Music piped over the speakers can be too loud.

Small but good options. - Edit

I love Donnie's, and want to reiterate that they have never offered vegan pizza there - i've read that some people from the local Vegetarian/Vegan society have brought a bag of Daiya to have a pizza made for their meetups, but that's it.

I really like the sweet potato wrap, the falafel is usually pretty good (like all falafel, sometimes it's a little dry). The will make the vegan anti pasto appetizer into a salad for you if you want it as your main dish. Sometimes the special is vegan, even if it doesn't say on the board you can ask. All of the staff are really nice.

The atmosphere is great because they are always featuring local art of some sort.

The only downside is that during the school year it can get crowded because of the college, so I tend to go there more during the summer.

Pros: Friendly staff, good food

Cons: Sometimes crowded

NOT vegan - Edit

Nice people. Ok food but NOT vegan.
I drove over here because another reviewer said they serve vegan pizza made with Daya cheese--not true. I spoke with someone who has worked here since they opened and said they have never served vegan cheese. If your vegetarian they have 2 vegetarian pizza options. But this is NOT a good option for vegans!

Pros: vegetarian options

Cons: NOT vegan

AlpineJones 14 Sep 2016 - Thanks for checking out Donnie's in Decatur. I am the business manager. We have never advertised that we sell vegan cheese so not sure why false information from another reviewer would warrant a 1 star review. The Donnie's in Springfield served vegan cheese so that may be the confusion. Also, we serve multiple vegan dishes including falafel and a vegan sweet potato wrap. All of our dishes can be customized for vegans and our cooks are trained on the proper way to prepare vegan dishes upon request. We hope you'll give us another try.

Vegan Pizza and wraps - Edit

So awesome! So many of the dishes are vegan or easily made vegan. They have daiya vegan cheese for the pizza and a vegan sauce option - make sure you get the thin crust - it's the best. They also have a vegan curry if they're not out of it and some vegan wraps that are already vegan or easily made so. You can also get nachos loaded with veggies and daiya if you ask. Also, their hummus is great.

Pros: Vegan cheese and wraps, excellent, pretty healthy options, music and bar
