Fabulous street tacos. Pick three for about $15. With yummy fixings, rice and beans. Perfect lunch before heading to Desert Trip concert. Have a frozen margarita with mango. Would come back any time. :)

Absolute waste of money. Food is ridiculously expensive and not good at all. My wife ordered the Chiles Rellenos that had about a 1/4 of breading and were hardly edible. I ordered the Cochinito Pibil, wasn't even close to the authentic recipe and one of the pieces was 100% fat, yuck! Drinks are overpriced too. The only redeeming quality was... More

Diego's is a so easy when you can't decide where to go. Parking is easy. Usually don't have reservations, eat the bar or table inside or out, extensive menu and the people are nice. Pretty easy....huh?

Dined here with family friends and being so hot outside everyone sat inside rather than spreading out to the lovely patio. The house margarita was great and while a regular size suited me, they also serve a large and giant sized margarita. The chicken fajitas were delicious and large enough for 2 smaller eaters to share. The street tacos were... More

My wife and I stopped in here to eat and it turned out to be great! The carnitas were great and pair it with a good beer and youre set! The staff were so sweet and nice and the manager gave our son a toy car and teddy bear! Unexpected yet awesome gesture. Cant wait go come back here.

It's not any better, or worse than most of the high end local Mexican restaurants. Food is basically what you get at the competition. Waiters are not the most friendly, don't ask for anything out of the ordinary, or special it won't happen. Ambiance is great, and food quality if fine.
