This restaurant was recommended to us by the front desk staff at our hotel and we were not disappointed. We had asked them to recommend somewhere that had a local feel to it, something we wouldn't experience other places. We were pleased to see a lot of cars in the parking lot, usually a good sign. The margaritas were tasty,... More

You will be in heaven if you happen to come in on cookie day! One of the managers bakes large batches of one of the best biscochitos I've ever tasted. If you miss this day, it's ok - the food and service is great, so you'll be close to heaven anyway!

I enjoy the food, the service, and the atmosphere. I think the staff does a great job for as busy as they get. Whenever I come to Gallup this is where I eat.

My spouse had adovado--which he loved--and said it was the spiciest adovado he had ever eaten (high recommendation from him). We enjoyed the chips and salsa. Don Diego's was recommended by a local, and it was good advice.

When in Rome . . . do as the Romans do . . . and that's what led me to Don Diego's in Gallup. There are some very good New Mexican restaurants in Gallup, but my friends who are locals say that this place is the best one in town. I have to agree. The food is excellent and the... More

This is one of the few restaurants I enjoy in Gallup, NM. I always order beef tacos with salsa. The tamales and enchiladas are average. The green chili is better than the red chili. The complimentary salsa and chips are ok. The salsa has a tomatoe base nonetheless it's hot! The chips are store bought and just warmed. It's complimentary,... More

We live in the neighborhood close to Don Diego's. We visit here every so often and we find the service to be consistently friendly and efficient. This is a family owned business and they have been at it a long time and know what they're doing. We have always sat in the bar, (only open in the evenings), order a... More

The carnitas are great and the salsa is nice and spicy. Everyone else in my group seemed to be very happy with their food as well.

We come here to eat breakfast which I feel is the best meal served here. Lunch and dinner are not that great. People are nice. Prices are not bad. Place is clean. Dishes and silverware clean. Enchiladas not that good--red chili sauce, needs work. Tacos are good. Green is better than red. Red stains all over my tortillas--fingerprints, sloppy food... More
