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.

I had the favorito sandwich; pulled pork, guacamole, onion, and cheese. Served with typical green herbed South American salsa. Ask for their mild habanero sauce.

Diego’s is an attractive and very welcoming place. We were greeted by a delightful little girl acting as hostess. Our server could not have been nicer. After that things went downhill just a little. It took a very long time to get our meal but we were chatting and that wasn’t a problem. My sister ordered one item a la carte and got the whole dinner. My wife and I wanted to substitute rice for extra vegetables. They got the no-rice part correct. Our stuffed Portobello mushrooms were a bit disappointing. I expected something a little larger and a little more fully cooked. It was barely warm, but OK.

Nobody is perfect. All-in-all I was happy with Diego’s and would definitely go back again.

Bright atmosphere & environment , delicious food - remember this is not Mexican food and enjoy a new taste treat (my kids were sure it had to be Mexican and were sad at first, then delightfully surprised). PS There is tasty fresh lemonade for all family members & their 'adult' (alcoholic) lemonade is amazing!

'Since 2002, Diego’s Chilean Inspired South American Restaurant has had an eclectic, relaxing atmosphere featuring fresh ingredients'. a quote from their website, and really a great find on Colfax AVE in Grass Valley. I have been in only for lunch a half-dozen times but love the Calamari Frito, and great 'grass-fed beef' burger selection. There are some interesting items to explore and prices are very reasonable for the area. Staff is like a family,( some are) working for an enjoyable dining experience.

Diegos is a wonderful culinary experience and you'll think you've traveled to South America! The owners and staff are very friendly and will make you feel welcome. The food is incredibly good and we really like the homemade biscuits!
