Not haute cuisine by any means, but good old-fashioned Mexican food. Decor is dated and dim, reminiscent of the 70s. Still, love the salsa and the pork chile verde.

I really like this place's atmosphere. We had dinner in the bar area and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Our waitress was very kind and attentative. I had a chicken burrito which was very tasty and big. The tortillas were a bit oily but good as well. A very decent place I could only recommend!

Don't care for the food, so many other good Mexican food places in San Dimas. Service is good but food is oily and chips are also.

The food was great but not outstanding. Casa del Rey is really more of a tradition and a memory of the past in San Dimas rather than a destination to seek out and "dine" at. Service was extremely slow I mean S-L-O-W... 42 minutes to get our food after ordering. The drinks were not cheap and were from the old... More

We had dinner at Casa Del Rey over the weekend-it was extremely busy with both locals and visitors. We decided to eat at the bar and the bartender took very good care of us, despite being very busy. I would go back again and have the exact same thing....Chicken Taquitos with rice and beans. Their chips were fresh, our drinks... More

The food here was surprisingly ordinary. I say "surprisingly," because at any lunch or dinner hour, the parking lot is full, and there is no street parking anywhere close. We thought their food must be something really special, so, armed with a coupon, we went there for dinner. We were very disappointed. The food was okay, but there are several... More

Service was slow, and so was refills. But the food was perfect. The decor and feel inside is very outdated.

The food here is great. Salsa is good tasting they offer two mild and hot they also offer Guacamole. Very good tasting. Waitress Elisa was very helpful. She made our visit there. Very enjoyable. Great service. This was my first time there and I wasn't disappointed. I will return there.

Not always the fastest on the patio to get waited on, there seems to be periods of time when not enough staff has been scheduled. Happy hour out back on the patio gets loud a lot of people drinking and smoking having a good time.

I never understand why people flock to this place! There are so many better Mexican food places around. Not authentic. Not very good.
