An interesting little place a little off the main drag, with colorful quirky decor and good South American food. Not very big; some outdoor seating (courtyard open to the street, Hwy 174). Can get busy

Great service, yet the Calamari while was promised to be the "best in town," it was literally DISGUSTING! Was actually difficult to find the Calamari within the breeding, and while the waiter actually asked if we preferred the tentacles and was asked not to include...More

Hi Veronica, I'm so sorry to see that you had such an unappetizing meal. I spoke with our baker, the shrimp is cooked with honey so it could be sticky and we don't have an eggplant dish so I can not investigate. We always try...More

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...More

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.
