Four nights in a row, we sampled four Mexican Restaurants in the greater Palm Desert region, so we have a good sense of where we plan to return for dinner. Without a doubt, we will dine here again. It was 1st out of 4 (first place). Our family was seated right away without reservation, as we dined early. The restaurant... More

Don Diego's has a great outside patio to eat. Employee(s) are very friendly. We eat here every time we come to Palm Desert as the food is very consistent. It can be a little expensive at dinner, however they have a great breakfast / lunch menu and Happy Hour menu. Chili Verde burritos are delicious the Ground beef potatoes steak... More

This was my third time to this restaurant and it was consistently terrible! I had to write a review this time it was that bad! Overpriced, small portions and Flavorless. My taco had three small pieces of steak, that was it nothing else. I did not want to complain in front of guests. You have been warned! The only upside... More

Generally we like Don Diegos. They have a good outdoor patio and make very good margaritas. We had a new server, Sonia. She messed everything up. She made the margaritas and there were awful. She brought water for only one of us. I ordered grilled calamari and she forgot my appetizer. The fajitas and chicken relleno were well prepared (which... More

We had dinner there last night & ordered the Enchiladas Suisse with chicken & a green sauce. It was very good with mild flavoring & served with rice & beans. The temperature was not quite hot enough for me so they promptly replaced it with a new order. The service was excellent. They have a very good Happy Hour choice... More

Prices very expensive for what you get to eat. A big disappointment for the last two years. Maybe a new owner? They push the premium drinks during happy hour so there isn't a discount.

After reading all of the reviews, we decided to try Don Diego's. We went early, so we didn't have any problem getting a table. The salsa was very good, and we also ordered some guacamole. It was also good. I thought the chips were a little hard, but one of the men in our party lived them. I ordered the... More
