This restaurant has a lot going for it. The service is very attentive. The staff are pleasant. The food is good. Try the grilled calamari. The margarita are well prepared and the entrees flavorful. The location lets in lots of light and is very clean. We skipped the patio as it was too hot outside.

Best house margarita I've ever had. Not too sweet and actually had a kick! We ate happy hour appetizers for very cheap and they were great. Restaurant was a little hard to find, but right on the main road. Hidden at the end of a very new and nice strip mall.

As usual the Happy Hour at Don Diego's is one of the best in the Coachella Valley. Time is from 3-6 everyday, available in all areas of the establishment, bar, inside tables and on the patio. Of course no one sits on the Patio during the summer. Many Valley Mexican restaurants have their HH from 3-5. The extra hour at... More

Stopped in for lunch and was very impressed by their menu with a large selection of items and a good special lunch menu. One of the few places serving Tamales. The specials were like other restaurants and had the basics. Service was excellent and fast. Prices are up there because it is Indian Wells so be prepared. Great selection of... More

We used to go to baja California many times for lobster village, but have stopped traveling there for safety reasons. Imagine when we found MONDAY night Lobster Puerto Nuevo at Don Diegos! 24.95 for a huge MAINE (including the claws) lobster, rice, beans, Cesear salad...and of course a delicious margarita! Delicious at a fantastic price. cant wait to go back... More

I had a great time and enjoyed both the food and drink as well as the staff and local patrons. Liked it so much, I returned a few days later and had another great meal and conversation.

Extensive menu. Very tasty and most importantly not greasy. Nice atmosphere inside. In the winter, spring and fall you can sit outside. Wait staff friendly, helpful and accommodated our nuances. Prices are reasonable given that it is Indian Wells!

Usually, when we decide to "eat out", and once we decide on Mexican food, our overwhelming choice is Don Diegos. It is located at the corner of Highway 111 and Cook Street and has been there for many years. That alone, would say a lot, but the food is why we choose Don Diegos to have a great Mexican dinner....
