The food was mediocre at best, very slow service, and they are not to friendly, Worst of all they are way overpriced for what you get. I would not go back. You can get better at just about any other Mexican restaurant in the area.

I LOVE Don Gustavo's and have enjoyed several of their menu items over the years. It is my husband's and my favorite Mexican restaurant. We especially love their shredded chicken crispy tacos and enchiladas. They also have great fajitas, tostadas, quesadillas, and burritos. Taco Tuesday is fun with their small "street tacos." We had our engagement party here back in... More

Stopped in here after visiting Soka University after not finding many dining options other than chain restaurants. Thought the food was good, very large portions, service was good and the prices were reasonable for the area.

Tough to find decent Mexican food in Mission Viejo and Don Gustavo's is as good as any. Good food, good service at a reasonable price.

Sorry, but that's what it tastes like. Fairly large portions of mediocrity. Service is hit and miss. Average prices and convenient strip mall location were the only attractive things.

Excellent food. Get the chicken nachos. You wont be disappointed. Margaritas are delish as well! If the location was better I believe this restaurant would do much better. But I know where it's at so I'm happy.

We have thoroughly enjoyed the addition of Don Gustavo's restaurant to our neighborhood. Very tasty food served with a smile and attentiveness. We like the soft taco combo, and the other selections are as just as delicious. We heartily recommend them.

We stopped on our way from San Diego to Anaheim and lucked into this restaurant with fabulous food. The staff was very attentive and efficient. The restaurant was very organized and clean. We wish this little restaurant was closer to home! Definitely worth a visit!

This unassuming restaurant is tucked away in a shopping center among other small stores, so it could be hard to miss. My dad took us there since he is a local and knew about it. Looks are deceiving... it is a small place and has homey decor. But the food is quite good! The margaritas were sizable. I loved my... More
