Noisy and very dark restaurant, glad we had the flashlight app on the phone so we could read the menu. The service was good the food delicious...I couldn't see it but it was so tasty, every bite. We started with the watermelon gazpacho, we told our waitress that we would try to make this at home, she was delighted we... More

We were 2 couples this time and each meal was terrific, fresh, hot and packed full of flavor and big servings. We had steak , tuna taco's, fish taco's and lamb burrito. We went... More

Love them both! Right next to each other on Bowen's wharf. Wish we were there! Diego's Mexican menu is awesome. The Wharf Pub's tater tots are a unique idea.

Reviewed Diego's in July of last year and it was great. This year, a lot was not great. Confused servers and hostess issues, paper plates because the dishwasher was broken, general upkeep issues and a decided lack of attention to detail. The spicy guacamole was good but was over processed resulting in texture issues. The "Crack Fries" were good but... More

Hi guys, Scott Kirmil the owner here. Really sorry to hear you felt we went down hill since last time. It looks like you dined with us this weekend and we did have a few curve balls thrown out way on one of our busiest weekends of the year due to folk festival. A hostess no show, cook out sick...

We love Diego's! Great drinks, guac and food! The small plates to share are incredible - especially the mushroom truffle quesadillas. Service was great too! If you remember bring a marker to write on the bathroom wall - with the many other Diego fans. Enjoy!!

had a late lunch at Diego's this week. The shredded pork spring rolls and spicy guacomole were great. The nachos with chicken (can't remember the name) were good. The creme on them was a little heavier than I antipcated (thought it would be more of a sauce). Had to pay $5 for chips and salsa. Never been to a mexican... More

Casual, open air, delicious, friendly staff and all around go back to over and over. Great guac, a super margarita and a flan to die for. All ages were enjoying the food.

Diego's is one of my favorite restaurants to go to. Not only do they have authentic Mexican cuisine, but they also have an incredible drink list. My favorite drink is the Santa Baya Margarita, which is similar to a typical margarita, but served with cinnamon. I also think their enchiladas are the best around. I have had the pulled pork...

Service was great and the food was tasty. The price was lower than what the quality and quantity would suggest, which was great. Margaritas' were strong and flavorful. The staff was helpful with suggestions and recommendations. This was is a definite must.
