Demise of Dining at Diego’s

Well a little taste of home is gone…

We would regularly make the trip across town to have a Saturday lunch or dinner at Diego’s Taco Shop on Independence. It was nothing fancy, just real good Southern California Mexican food, which is not a real easy find here in Southeast Virginia… It had all the makings of a typical San Diego taco shop, except for the fact that all the staff spoke English, and I doubt any of them could speak Spanish…

Now there are a lot of Mexican food places in town, but only three, I consider any good, and Diego’s was on the top of my list, Pelon’s is a close second, but they are at the Oceanfront, and I hate that hassle in the summer,  El Taqueria San Jose Restaurant is my third choice, for no particular reason. Actually all three are real close in my book. I have tried most of the other places in the Virgina Beach area, and they aren’t even in the same league….

I guess the thing I liked best about Diego’s was the atmosphere, or lack of, the place was just like the places back in San Diego, in an old Taco Bell, with a paint job, no theme, nothing fancy, just good food…

Diego’s you will be missed…
