The place was packed for a Saturday night and yet it was quiet enough to have a conversation with the table next to me.

It's ok. Food is tasty yes. Service can be slacking. The place does get crowded--it's about the only place in town. Sure wish they would improve on quality--especially when it comes to freshness.

Well I eat here almost once a week. I am addicted to the Number 1 combo plate. They make a sauce called gravy that needs to be bottled and sold!.

How do they do it?? The waiters are always fantastic and the food is delicious. Portions are large and the prices are shockingly low for the quality. The atmosphere is pleasant and the restaurant is very clean Located in downtown Ione and just a 1/4 mile from historic preston castle you owe it to yourself give Don Luis a try.... More

Our go-to when we crave Mexican food. Not fancy, but the food is delicious! Recent addition of carpet has brought the noise level way down, which we appreciate.

We stopped in for a Linner (lunch-dinner) about 4 pm on a Saturday, and it was a good choice. The place is clean, staff friendly and the service was good plus prices are very reasonable...a good combination. We both ordered the lunch combo plates, I had the Chile Relleno and the wife a Chicken Enchilada, both were excellent. The relleno... More

Far and few between as restaurants in Amador County go, this one is a little gem. Locals enjoy take out or eat-in here; the food is hot and really tasty...no frills but a nice little place to get a good meal. The service is fast too.

When we walked in, the place was packed! Always a good sign! Very little decor, but you are there for the food and you will not be disappointed! Another good place to eat in Ione! Easy parking in back.
