nothing special

I had high hopes for this because a few friends frequent this place. Good size portions but flavor just wasn't there I thought. Service was great though and very generous with the chips and salsa. I also didn't like the very closed out atmosphere. Not much windows at all.

Best service in town. Food always looks yummy but flavor profile is a little shallow. Love the staff.

This place was recommended by the hotel where we stayed at. We ate lunch there one day and then returned for dinner a couple of days later. The service was friendly and quick. Food was good and the margaritas enjoyable. This is a local place and doesn't need the ambiance of a chain or high end place to bring in... More

There are thousands of Mexican restaurants in Southern California, and the flavors of authentic cuisine are usually terrific, but this is not one of them. Service was very good, pricing was very good, but if the flavor is off, it is all for naught. I would not go back, and would try other nearby Mexican restaurants instead. Four of us... More

simple place, friendly, good food, not expensive... what more do you want from a local joint? Ive come here for 30 years and they are a good place, you can order out as well.

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
