“Bad drink that caused a problem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Four of us had dinner on 1/26/2013. We all had a different entree. Chips and salsa are served, salsa very good with smoked chilis. This review is written about what I got. I had the carna asada steak made from a rib eye. Cooked perfectly, the server stated that the meat is marinated for 48 hours. If so, why is the center of the steak cooked to a perfect medium? (nice and pink). I gave the others a sample of the steak-they all thought it was good and should have ordered it. I ordered a side of rice that I shouldn't have. The chips, salsa, and guacamole filled me up. I found out later two members of our party got sick later on during the night. The only think in common was the drink=they both had a mango margaritas. As a previous post stated the volume level in the restaurant was quite loud. The wait staff friendly and helpful.

“Bueno!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Mexican done right! From the table-side made guacamole to the pitcher of margaritas to the sizzling fajitas, it was a feast to savor! The waitstaff are super friendly and attentive. Highly recommend!

“Must stop on our Las Vegas vacations!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We were at Diego at the end of September 2012 for our last vacation. I have to agree, it was not quite as good as our past visits over the last five years. We still enjoyed ourselves, being from Michigan we tend to dine out early in Vegas time, but it's actually late for our internal clocks in home time. Dining earlier, we tend to miss the loud crazy crowds, they are usually rolling in when we're heading out. One other thing we discovered is the happy hour menu at the bar, it is wonderful and far more reasonable portions, plus you get a drink special our two! We love the salsa sampler with seasoned salts with chips to start...just wonderful! The table side made guacamole is fantastic, but learned the hard way, go light on the sundried tomatoes! Looking forward to our next vist!

“Not quite as good as in the past”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

We have been coming to Las Vegas annually for years. We discovered Diego several years ago and have made it a 'regular stop' while in the city. The latest visit was not quite up to expectations. Have they remodeled or was it just a exceptionally noisy crowd!! It was difficult to hold a conversation with my table mate without shouting. Not my idea of what we used to think of as a 5* experience. The cost for the meal was still the same as in the past.

The food was still good, not incredible. The guacamole made table-side is still delicious. The margaritas (Patron) with a bit of orange juice on the side are tasty, although the glass has so much ice in it, there is little room for the actual DRINK.

Will we return? Probably. We'll see what happens when we are back in Las Vegas next year!

“Very good Mexican fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

A bit more pricy than most (but it is Vegas...) but all was very good. The sea bass was spectacular...the menu description did not do it justice. The salsa with chips has a very slight heat to it, and is very "meaty" (thick). We asked for habanero sauce on the side and it was terrific! The spicy cucumber martini was also a delight. An interesting mix of sweet and spicy.
