GREAT breakfast burritos. It is so great to be able to grab one of their amazing burritos on the way into work. They are always accommodating to my tweaks to their regular menu items and they are always friendly and efficient.

Owners are incredible friendly people with a great sense of humor and they value each of their customers. The food is excellent and their menu is extensive. Limited seating is available but the experience is worth waiting a few minutes to experience the restaurant.

We decided to give Diego's a shot after reading excellent yelp reviews. We were not disappointed! The portions are enormous, prices were low, and the food was delicious! Don't let the outside of the building or the surrounding buildings fool you, this truly is great food!

Diego's is the best. The food is so good that I decided to go back once a week so that I can try everything on the menu. They have not disappointed me yet! The adobada is the best I have ever tasted.

Xl size portions. Mom and Pop owned (isn't that what America was founded on?). Been visiting Diegos for at least 20years. Very consistent.

The carne asada burrito is good enough that I just can't bring myself to try anything else. Vanessa is usually running the front of the house and she is friendly yet efficient. Her husband cooks. And he knows what he's doing.

I mainly come here for breakfast. The breakfast burritos are the best! There are several choices but my favorite is the California, eggs, potatoes, bacon, onion, bell pepper and cheese. Add the fresh made salsa and the result is heaven. Lunch is also served here, the flautas are great. Not open for dinner, this is a family run place so... More

I’ve been going to Diego’s Place for almost 5 years now. It is family owned and operated and I always know I can trust the food is made to the best standards. You can call in an order so you have your food waiting when you get there. The portions are generous and I’ve never not liked something I got... More

Amazing!! Diego's does it right. Hot and fresh. Warm and inviting. Everyone knows you go where the locals go, a line means they're doing something right. Like the rule for a taco cart in TJ. LOL They have "flautas" a San Diego mexican staple, with the most amazing guacamole.. I also had their Surf & Turf Burritto.. spicy shrimp and... More
