Being From Texas, and A True Mexican Food Lover....This Place Is....Not :-(

Ok, so it's in the MGM, and it's in Las Vegas.... And it's....well, it isn't! Maybe if I was visiting from Canada and never had Mexican food... But being from Texas, with TRUE Mexican Food... It's definitely not special! Place needs to hire a chef, and not just a cook!

I really like this place. They have regional dishes that you won't find at a typical Mexican restaurant. Very good service and not to over the top prices. some seats have a view of the t.v.'s at the bar..

Yea Vegas is expensive but if you get quality its worth it. Frankly this place was not nearly worth what they charged. Good service just average food.

I got the Prime Rib and it was delicious. The shrimp was very good also. The bread was so yummy. The service was outstanding. I will go here again next time in Vegas.

The food was over seasoned and the drinks tasted a bit off. Maybe we just hit the wrong night. Shared a fajita platter, beef and chicken. Portions are large, Taco Salad comes on a platter. Nachos seemed store bought.

This is not an inexpensive restaurant but if you can go at happy hour its $7-9. We had a number of starters, they were nicely presented, tasted great. Service was very attentive. Would go again any time.

It was just okay. Nothing special. I'm from Oklahoma and we love our Mexican food but this was a let down, especially for the price. Skip it. There are plenty of other options.

The food at Diego was very authentic, delicious, and expensive. It is a lot better than the many Mexican rip-off restaurants that you will find scattered throughout Las Vegas.

They have changed the name to Hecho, it's still the best Tequila Bar on the Strip! Cesar and Cesar are still pouring the best Margaritas and shots to be found anywhere! The atmosphere is now like a Mexican Sports Bar....and the food is more Tex Mex, however the service is supremo, so give it Shot!
