Popular, easy to find Mexican restaurant.

Appears to be popular with locals and travelers. Can't compare with other Mexican restaurants in town, but the food was enjoyable. I was warned that the red chili sauce was quite hot, so chose the green. It seemed homemade and was perfect for my tastebuds.

Completely enjoyed the stuffed sopapilla that I ordered. The mild & delicious green chile sauce I asked for on the side. They serve large portion s and everything was great.

We were very happy to find very GOOD chili relleno at Don Diego's in Gallup. Service was great, but I wish they would not allow vendors of very cheap jewelry to continually roam the restaurant and try to sell their wares. The salsa was delish and so were the flour tortillas. I saved one of my rellenos for breakfast the... More

Went for breakfast, I ordered an egg omelet with green chilli and bacon. The food was very good, had very good flavor. It came with hash browns and a flour tortilla. Good wait staff also. I would go back here for sure.

I eat here when on business in Gallup. Homemade traditional NM food and great service. The only downfall is the vendors who walk table to table selling handcrafted Native American jewelry- some just pass by after you say no thank you - some seem to push their goods. I just wanted to eat and not be rude- a tent outside... More

Had a quick overnight stopover in Gallup and wanted "Mexican Food" and a margarita to end the day. This place was easy to reach from the hotel. Service was friendly and the food tasted good. Filled up on homemade guacamole, which is what I wanted. The margarita was not the best I've ever had, but I have no complaints. People... More
