Sadly, this place closed down. It was one of my favorite places to eat downtown and now its gone. It is now a cajun seafood place that is always closed due to no seafood. Its hard to get good seafood in Cheyenne.

Enjoyed them while they lasted. Probably should have been in a smaller space - it always felt like the place was hauntingly empty. Food was pretty good, though.

Not that it is bad food but the food was rather bland and unremarkable. The interior is also unremarkable. The service was good and the food arrived promptly. I will not be returning.

Wanted to try this place out, stopped by at 6:30, but they close at 7pm on a weeknight. For a new restaurant, would think they would stay open a little later. Sad.

This is a family run establishment with good food and low prices. It's very unpretentious and laid back. Visit a few times and they will remember you. They do most everything in-house and the results show it. My favorite place for a breakfast of huevos...More

I frequent places in Downtown Cheyenne and Don Rey's is one of them. They serve all the basic items, which are all really good. What I can't find most places is seep fried flour tortilla tacos. I generally have three that come full of meat...More

Excellent local restaurant located in downtown Cheyenne. The food is hand made daily, by Don Rey and his family. Portions are large and very reasonably priced. Excellent green chili. The seating area is large and the tables and booths are well spaced out, so you're...More

This small lace is RN by a wonderful family and they insist on all their food being made from " scratch" each and every day. You can not go wrong on any of their dishes! We love their breakfast but drop by all we can...More
