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.

Our hotel concierge recommended this restaurant and we were not the least bit disappointed. It was a beautiful evening so we dined outside on the patio and thoroughly enjoyed everything about our visit. Our server was very professional and attentive, Our food was delicious and the price was quite reasonable. Overall, an excellent dining experience!

Javier was wonderful, with good attitude and sense of humor that made the meal time pass more quickly. The food was fresh and prepared just the way we ordered it. It all come out hot and/or cold as appropriate. The portions were large and easily shared. The large Guacamole served for four people.

I've been here many times over the years during vacations to Palm Desert. We usually go to Don Diego's for one night during the trip and it never disappoints. Good chips and salsa along with good variety of authentic Mexican food. Friendly staff and quick service also are part of the experience!

My husband and I have dined many times at Don Diego's, mostly for lunch and have always enjoyed our meal. We visited during Happy Hour and were seated outside on the patio.
