Total make over! Beautiful inside! The menu has some old favorites, but many new wonderful dishes with great traditional flavors brought in by the new owner. Give it a try!

Was recommended by a friend so thought we'd try it. Staff very friendly but the food was not very good. Skimpy on the meat, I had to eat my taco with a fork as it crumbled. Not going back.

Full bar with a good selection of beers on tap. Four of us had a selection of different items and everyone agreed that the food was good and we would return.

Familia Diaz has been an icon of Santa Paula for many years and has been taken over by new owners this year. So with any change over the regulars hold their breath and see what happens. Last time I was there things seem to be...More

We have not been there since they changed. It has always been one of the best MEX. food places in Ventura County. The new owners are supposed to keep all the old recipes from the Diaz Family and keep serving them. If they do that...More

I have been in the establishment recently and I did not notice if the prices had been changed. I just didn't bother looking at the menu prices versus the prices on the bill. I just assumed things were correct.
