Wonderful Mexican food. We always stop here whenever we are in the area. Happy hour discounts makes for inexpensive margaritas and tacos. Bartender Robert is fast and makes the best margaritas in town. The dinner service is fast and delicious. I have tried several different dishes and all were outstanding. I live in San Diego so great Mexican food is... More

I really like true Mexican food but it is hard to find at most restaurants. In all fairness to most Mexican restaurants most people think of Americanize/Mexican as a good restaurant and have their favorites. I’ve spent a lot of time in Mexico and have come to appreciate the methods of preparing and serving their offerings. So, with that said... More

Very nice restaurant tucked away in the corner of a mall. Ambiance is good, indoor/outdoor seating available. Drinks and portions were large! Servers were friendly.

While visiting Palm Springs over the weekend, my honey and I were in the mood for authentic Mexican food. Highly recommended to us was Don Diego's, located in the Village off of Route 111, Indian Wells. We went there on a Thursday evening and started out with delicious margaritas. Our waiter, Javier, who've was an excellent server, suggested that we... More

Don Diego's do 3 sizes of margarita. We have never had a group large enough to share the tower. We came in for lunch and generally enjoy sitting on the patio where dogs are allowed. We ordered several good dishes and they are good about gluten free or dairy free options. We enjoyed the food. Service was good. And they... More

Within walking distance of the Holiday Inn Express that I stayed at. Had a 2 Tamale meal and have to say they were some of the better tamales I have had. The place was crowed inside and out on the patio but I received my food in a timely fashion. The prices are mid range for this area and the... More

All entrees were really good, as were the margaritas. Would have been 5 star rating, except the chairs were very uncomfortable(to the point of being painful to sit in due to a very narrow seat with a spindle right where the hip is) I don't know if the interior chairs are as bad, but avoid the outdoor patio due to...

We were looking for good Mexican food on our recent trip to Indian Wells and Don Diego's was recommended. It did not disappoint. The food was delicious and came out fast. Prices are reasonable and we had a beautiful evening so we're able to sit out on the patio. We would definitely go back.
