Have been to this place many times. Kind of a hole in the wall place with good food. Staff is always friendly and the place is clean. Great local family owned and operated place

This is a very popular restaurant, with sufficient, but limited indoor seating. You order your food at the counter, then find a seat and your food is brought to you. The chili rellenos aren't deep-fried. The food and the service are great. We go back every time we're in town.

A local favorite. Don Lalos offers authentic and delicious food in the quietness of Meiner's Oaks. It is located just block off the scenic Rice Road that connects to Hwy 33. Be sure to ask for the chips and salsa, they are complimentary and delicious.

My wife and I ate at Don Lagos after a disappointing Mexican meal at another Ojai restruant. While the other one had no flavor, Don Lalos had enough to taste. To be true Mexican food, they need to spice it up. Bright and spotless kitchen. Fast, friendly counter service. Very reasonable prices. We'll eat at Don Lalos again.

Very casual, in a very casual neighborhood. I loved my steak tostada. Staff were happy and helpful. Enjoyed watching the other customers, all locals from what I could gather.

Other then great service given by Erica and Lissette, the burritos are great, fresh ingredients and a very clean facility. The Horchatas are one of a kind.

I have eaten at Don Lalos several times and enjoyed their food. My favorite are the burritos. Whether I order chicken, beef or vegetarian, I always end up liking it. The counter service is friendly, the cooks aim to please, and the sauce that comes with the burritos is very tasty.
