great margaritas if you ask them to be made with an Anejo instead of a silver, awesome guacamole and crack fries, barbacoa was so-so.. too fruity tasting. Most entrees have a twist on the traditional Mexican fare, so go expecting something different.

Diego's was a great evening. We made reservations, sat outside. It's not on the water but steps away from the harbor. The outside atmosphere was great. The guacamole was really good. I had fish tacos - excellent, as was the burrito my wife had. Good beer selection on tap. Service a little slow at times, but no big deal. Went... More

This bar has really cool cantina feel to it. The staff are friendly and the service is fast if not a little rushed. The complimentary house made salsa and chips is great way to start your night although I'd stick to beer and wine, the cocktails are not so hot. Diego's has a great terrace right in the middle of...

Great little place with really good food. Metal chairs aren't the most comfortable and the tables are really small for 4-5 people, but again the food is really good!

The food was delicious and good value. The waitress however really did not care and we struggled to order for ages. I could hardly read the menu as it was so dark and after our main course we were given the check without being asked and with no offer of a dessert menu. With more charm and effort from its... More

My wife and I love the fish tacos here. What a fantastic dish. The sauces and flavors are amazing. The drink menu is fantastic. I could never have dreamed of some of the combinations they have to choose from. Bartenders Kayla and Lisa are friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back.

Timing is everything, they say...and it was a beautiful August Sunday night. We were early diners...about 6:30 pm...and we were seated on the outside rim of the patio. The server, Hannah, was excellent. She came over right away and offered to answer any questions we had about the menu. When we did have questions, like about the baja aioli, she... More
