My husband and I were heading out to try Jerry's but couldn't find anywhere to park in town so ended up here and what a great find. I had a lighter enchilada my husband the beef special which was amazing. Great place and friendly staff.

We found Don Diego's to be a nice family run restaurant with great food and super service. It was recommended by a friend plus has easy parking. But what is with all those trains nearby running through downtown Gallup? Very interesting place.
