Dinner was OK, however, the wait staff seemed in a hurry to move us out so the next guests could sit down. No one likes to be hurried in their dining experience!

Whenever Don Diego's has their Maine lobster special dinner, we meet there for dinner. They always have the sweetest lobsters and the way it is cooked - like going to Puerto Nuevo - along with tortilla's, etc., is dynamite! Definitely a must when the special is running. Also, the margaritas are great also!! Very high quality.

We came accross this restaurant as were staying nearby in Hyatt Regency and wanted a family meal out. As Brits we were not used to 'real' Mexican food, We were really pleasantly surprised. For about $100 we had a fantastic and authentic tatsing meal which managed to also please 2 very fussy teenagers and a 9 year old. Friendly welcoming... More

Food was very good. More authentic and well prepared than most in area. Service was good but slow, but the mood was relaxed, so that wasn't all bad.

Took some co workers out for happy hour. Great margarita's. The happy hour menu is a great value. The $1 tacos are delicious. I have also had dinner here and the inside ambiance is great and the food is top notch.

We decided to try something out of our usual tacos and enchiladas. Had their Pescado Vera Cruz and it was really good. The fish was a generous portion and cooked perfectly. The sauce was as described. Very nice. My husband ordered the beef fajitas made with filet mingon which turned out to be enough for both of us. Our only... More

Visited several times during our stay in Palm Desert, always for happy hour, good for American beer and guacamole, with some good 1 dollar tacos. It's in a good location, patio heaters that were not needed during our visit. Haven't been later in the evening but would definitely recommend it for happy hour.

Begining with the most generous margaritas, moving into awesome guacamole with fresh chips and then the Beef Tamales like you have never tasted. I have eaten tamales at many restaurants but these are chuck full of beef and very little masa. They are fabulous
