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....

Annual visit during the Cinco de Mayo weekend celebration. Food and serviced and wait staff were top shelf. Patio was full but we had arrived early and got a good seat in the shade. A fun place for celebrating Cinco de Mayo.

Took our girlfriend here for dinner on her batchelorett weekend and wow! The food was amazing! They actually had a spicy salsa they brought out when I asked for it and were happy to leave dairy off my plate. The street tacos were authentic and are insanely good and the service was even better. Super fun place to start a... More

The food here is bland, at best. Aside from the fact they serve huge margaritas, the mexican food is not good.
