I had not visited this restaurant in 15 years, but thought I'd try it out for Sunday breakfast. Happy to report that the service was great and the food was still excellent. It's the kind of Mexican breakfast your grandmother would make. Tasty reliable comfort food. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. When we casually asked him about the coffee,... More

Been a Casa Dons customer for over 15 years and it used to be great. Ever since it has changed owners it has gone downhill fast. Twice we have been charged prices above what posted signage said and when questioned was told they just changed prices and forgot to change the drink menu prices. Service was ok but on the... More

The place is too old and smells like that. The price for some breakfast is greater that eating a huge meal at olive garden or ihop. If you want that kind of Mexican food, honestly, just go to a taco shop. You will get the exact same food for half the price. I would not recommend the place at all.

My husband grew up in Chula Vista, and told me how great the food was all those years growing up there. He was very happy to go here again and have the same great food and service! The fish burrito was delicious - one of the best I've had, and their rice and beans were also very flavorful. Our first... More

If you want consistently good to excellent Mexican Food this is where to go. Ate there again last night. We eat there for breakfast on occasions, lunch or dinner and have for over 30 years. Having a family of 7 we enjoyed the food and the prices and the service. Though late afternoons are always slow at food services. (... More

I grew up in Chula Vista, and to show my age, I remember when this place was a King Castle hamburger place. This is definitely a locals restaurant, you probably won't find it in any tourist magazine. Nothing fancy, but they do put out a pretty good plate of Mexican food at a decent price. I have eaten many things... More

Came here for a late breakfast after my son's graduation. We were a group of 6. The food was typical Mexican food but not outstanding in either quality or service, it was just okay. I've eaten here a few times over the years - I would go back given the chance. Two of my (ex's) family say it is one... More

I stopped in this restaurant for breakfast with my Mom. We were in a hurry and as it turned out this place was perfect because there were maybe 4 patrons in the whole place. Half the restaurant was a bar and it was too early for a crowd. Across from us sat a couple with the husband reading his wife... More

Great Mexican food and a favorite with the locals. Small but the service is friendly and fast. Prices are great for the amount of food served

Visiting the area and was directed here by former reviews. The flour tortillas are to die for especially when used to wrap up a chili verde burrito. Ordering ala carte was a good idea as it was very large. That and the enchalada sauce were the best I've ever had. This was yesterday and I'm thinking we'll go back for... More
