I enjoyed a fried tilapia over rice. Topped with guacamole splash Sides of black beans and grilled veggies. A great combination.

We love to treat our out of town friends to lunch or dinner at Diego's. We have several favorites on the menu, but always love the wonderful aldente' vegetables that accompany most of the dishes. This is a warm, friendly and eclectic restaurant.

Plenty of menu options. There is something for everyone. Great place for families, it can get crowded so make sure to make a reservation ahead of time! Friendly waiters and good, quick service!

I heard the hype on this restaurant but didn't find it that special. We came to eat the Lamb burger but after putting our order in, the waitress came back to tell us that they ran out of lamb burgers. Disappointedly we chose the Achiote Chicken. The chicken overcooked and dry. Not sure I would give this restaurant another try.

Hi Mazzi thank you for taking time to write a review. I would like to bring to your attention that we did have two orders of lamb burgers but your whole table wanted lamb burgers and didn't want the two orders. We do source or lamb locally and take pride in fresh ingredients. Earlier that day we had sold 3... More

This restaurant is based on Chilean cuisine, which I am not familiar with, but I have to think they have put their own spin on the offerings. We recently retired from the SF Bay Area where good restaurants abound and have been disappointed with most restaurants in Grass Valley. Diego's is above average for Grass Valley! The menu is really... More

The first thing that intrigued me about Diego's was their menu that I read online. We were surprised that there were quite a few vegetarian items on the menu too. They had a pleasant and reasonably priced wine list. The fish tacos were particularly good. I had the crab rellano, which I was looking forward to having though I did... More

Fabulous! All of it. 2 starters (appetizers) were plenty for 2 adults. Prices very reasonable. A gem for a small town.

Had a special girls dinner here and what a surprise to get to see my besties! I had the chicken skewers with chimi sauce. Chicken was a little dry. I did enjoy the squash soup, delicious! Waitress was not very attentive but it was the dinner hour. Nice evening to sit outside.

I had lunch recently at Diego's in Grass Valley and had a terrific meal. I had street tacos and the ground chorizo version was terrific! The fish tacos also come highly recommended by my cousin. Our server was very helpful in her recommendations which always makes for a nice experience. The restaurant itself is fairly small in the front, although... More
