It was my daughter's 39th birthday and she really wanted a new car. I told her I didn't have the money and I didn't have the way to get it so she just have to wait. About a week after that conversation I went to the casino and I want a ton of money so you know what I did I bought her the car she wanted. Somehow I think it made me happier than her just to see her face. well I think you get the message. LOL.
We stopped at the Shop and Save on our way through Gallup to grab a few things. In the back, as we were perusing the isles, we discovered Alicia's. We decided to have a few bean and cheese burritos, one smothered and one not. My goodness they were good! The chips and salsa were also wonderful. When I asked if they had tamales, I was told tamales needed to be ordered in the morning for pick up that day. Now that's a fresh, homemade tamale. The manager told us his mother has run Alicia's for 12 years and that the burritos were the tip of the iceberg. I bet they were! We'll stop again for sure. So should you.

Great newer mexican/american restaurant. This place is a real winner.
We were passing through Gallup and stopped here on the main highway to grab a bite to eat. There were many local families. The waitresses seemed to know all of them. The restaurant was a little noisy as it is a large open room. We ordered and had our food within 10-12 minutes. Food was very average. Salsa and warm chips were good. We watched as other customers left, the employees would have the table cleaned off within 2-3 minutes. Long line at the ladies room. Prices were very reasonable

Quiet, unassuming store front in a neighborhood. The carnitas were delicious. The refried beans and rice were sooooo good. My co-workers ordered chicken tacos, steak fajitas, and tamales and everybody loved their food. Our server was friendly and on top of things. She came back to check on us but not too often, which is a skill. The inside of the restaurant was simple, but clean, and open floor with 8-10 tables.

We stopped here based on the great reviews. Disappointing for sure we had fish and chips but they had no vinegar to go with it. We also had meatless enchiladas which had no filling at all. Sauce was very spicy but otherwise non descript. The only saving Grace was the service which was exceptional. Would not recommend

The office person at the chamber of commerce/code talker museum recommended Don Diegoâs when we asked him where he goes for meals. Even though a number of restaurants were more highly rated, we decided to go with his recommendation and we were delighted with our meal and the service. My husband had a combo plate and we tried both the red and the green chili. Both were very good. For dessert we shared a xango. Unfortunately we ate most of it before I got the picture. Overall it was a delightful experience in Don Diegoâs restaurant deserves a five star rating for todayâs experience.

Arrived too late for breakfast, so had lunch. Seated quickly in small restaurant inside of hotel, drink orders taken. Meal order taken quickly and we were provided with small dish of tortilla chips with salsa as appetizer.Meals arrived slower than we expected as they were not busy. Both of our orders were hot and as advertised, both tasty. Service was somewhat inconsistent during our meal...often wait staff passed by our table never refilling our drinks, other times we had two wait staff at our table both trying to refill our drinks or get us to order desserts. Not sure what was going on here. However, come check time wait staff had no difficulty getting check to us and waiting to get paid. Not sure if I was in this area again I would eat here, just too many other good choices in Gallup, NM.

We chose to visit this restaurant after reading that it was highly reviewed. While that's not always the perfect way to make a selection, it's a good place to start. We were very pleasantly surprised and pleased at the quality of food from this family owned restaurant. In our two week stay, we returned two more times and each time, we had a deliciously cooked meal with friendly, excellent service. Would highly recommend!

We got to Gallup early and someone had recommended Jerryâs. Itâs a diner type place. Full of locals which in my book is always good. Husband had breakfast burrito without chilli sauce as heâs not great with spice haha. I had one of the breakfasts. The waitresses were lovely. Kept filling my coffee up and it was good coffee. The place was so busy and ten mins after weâd arrived they had people waiting. I loved it.
