I have never had a bad meal here. The service level varies, but never disappoints. Servings are generous and their chimichurri is out of this world. Other favorites are salads, antichucho, soups, calimarri, relleno, and taco night!

My husband I were in Grass Valley in November and had never been before. We had such a wonderful trip and were very fortunate to hear about Diegos from the owners of the place we rented. The food was tasty and even had vegetarian to meet my needs! We had dinner and it was a perfect place to go after... More

Just had lunch at Diegos. Lunch crowd was heavy but the staff handled it well. No serious delay in ordering or receiving food. The Churasco sandwich had more than enough tri-tip steak. The sweet potato fries were perfect. The Tres-Leches for desert topped it off. The Sunshine Lemonade is a must on a hot day.

We just happened on this place while driving into Grass Valley after visiting the Empire Mine. It is fairly small - a small dining room and a modest front patio. But the lunch menu, which included several specials, was extensive and varied. The atmosphere was pleasant and the service highly personal, friendly and attentive. We tried the fish tacos, carne...

We had a delicious late lunch at Diego's. They were very accommodating to our special requests, and the food was very good. The cooking was a bit slow, but worth the wait. Parking can be difficult, but wasn't on this occasion.

It's not often that you can order amazing Chilean food. We enjoyed quality service on the patio. The food was well priced and simply delicious. I would go here often if I lived in the area. I fell lucky we were able to stumble upon this gem, it's not located in a main tourist area.

Our only complaint was that it was a little warm inside, but they did their best to make us cool and comfortable. The service was great and our waitress walked us through the unique menu helping everyone to find something they would like. I had achote chicken, which is not something I expected to have when traveling to northern California.... More

Sit outside in the summer but inside is good too. Many unusual CHilean foods on the menu. I would take the waiter's word for the specials and verything is both unusual and good.

I love their stuffed portobello mushroom dinner entree. I only order that over and over... The decor is different but very artistic and warm and the service is very good and personable. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Overall the whole place is great, love their selection of food and wine. Their bread and butter is amazing. We love to go just my husband and myself. The service can be hit or miss but overall they are really good. Try a special they are amazing.

Description
Since 2002, Diegos has connected cultures and community through an escape into the Latin flavors of the Lower Americas, where our recipes are prepared daily in their traditional style. From the warm, house-made bread rolls and fresh crepes to our decadent desserts and fantastico weekend specials, we consciously source natural ingredients that are friendly to the environment. This includes free-range, grass fed, sustainably raised proteins and local organic produce. By operating with love, gratitude and a professional personal touch, we enjoy providing a colorful, comfortable setting where our guests are able to create and share memorable experiences together.
