"corn street tacos" and salsa made us come back the next time we were in town

we found Don Diego's driving by and stopped for a Mexican lunch. The salsa was great. And then the three corn street tacos came. Three mini tacos with corn and spices. Delicious. So the next time in Palm Desert we returns and had them again. They go great with Negro Modelo beer. They were... read more

Good menu and nice atmosphere with the outdoor seating and patio fountain. Staff is great, and food is all good. Have had breakfast and dinner there and everyone loved their choices. I especially loved the ribs!

Food was good, but nothing spectacular. Eating on the patio was delightful, but headlights of the cars were consistently flashing in our faces. Service was good and fast, but not friendly. We had a large party and that made access to the chips and salsa impossible for several of us. That could have been helped by putting more baskets of... More

The food is incredible. We've never had a bad meal here. We eat here every time we visit Indian Wells. The margaritas are the best we've had and they are huge! The service is great!!

My husband and I met friends for lunch at this restaurant. The food was very good, service was better than average, but the carpets were disgusting! Don't tell "The Chef" on Restaurant Impossible to check the carpets in this restaurant...disgusting. Black, literally, from wear and age! Bathrooms were outdated and "well used!" But, overall, the food was good, and the... More

We ate there on a Saturday night. We were seated right away and on a lovely patio that was heated. Next to us was a "boys trip" golf foursome and while they were unruly, they were also fun to be around. They bought us a "regular" size margarita in addition o the small ones we already had. The drink there... More

touted by some as a "great mexican place", possibly our expectations were too hihg. This is at best a watered down El Torito. I will admit there were a lot of customers there so somebody likes it --- but none in our party of 6. service was very poor. waiter did not even know who got which meal. especially surprising...

Over the Christmas break we hosted our family and Don Diegos ended up as one of the most popular choices. The grilled calamari are a very good and popular starter. That was followed with most enjoying a fajita while I like the chile rellenos. There is also a grilled Chicken Rellenos that is very delicious. Of course, a key attraction,... More

During our annual trip to La Quinta we always have a dinner or two at Don Diego's of Indian Wells. The service is reliable, attentive, and consistent. Each of our visits have been met with very good service and meals. We usually order the street tacos and enchilada's with Mole sauce. Both were consistently made and delivered to us within... More
