Really enjoyed dinner & drinks at Diego's. I like having another option for great food in Grass Valley. Atmosphere is very casual and the outdoor seating (weather permitting) is enjoyable.

This little gem in Grass Valley is so representative of this area. With the funky decor, mismatched dishes, and everything organic and local, it's a great place to go with friends or on a date. The sangria is divine, and changes with the seasons. One word of caution, do not go here if you are in a rush. This is... More

Diego's is the kind of place that you usually see in the movies: the very notion makes you sentimental, yet once the film is over you realize it was only fiction. Except in this case, it really does exist. From the almost shack-like exterior to the mismatched tables and chairs, Diego's atmosphere prepares you for a cultural experience as much... More

The atmosphere at this quirky little place is wonderful. The staff were really the nicest I've ever experienced. We told them we were thinking of moving to the area and we got so many tips on what to do an where to go. I felt like we'd love the town. And the food. First off, it's not Mexican. It's Chilean...

I thought I was going to a typical Mexican restaurant. It's not that at all, not even a little. The menu is very unique, even the free bread rolls are different...I could have easily eaten a couple dozen. I've gotten different meals the few times I've been there, and the have all been very good. It's decorated pretty cool too,... More

Have eaten here frequently recently. The staff is sincere, caring, knowledgable and goes out of the way to please. Chef is one of the most talented anywhere in CA. Large choice of delectable entrees from some of the best burgers anywhere to authentic SA dishes. Love the balance of flavors the chef imparts, and the portions are large and of... More

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.
