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.

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
