The restaurant is closed. We pulled up, seeing the sign and wanting Mexican food but some ladies across the street let us know they'd been closed a while.

I went for dinner, the place seemed a bit eccentric but the food was quite good and the prices reasonable. I like going to Mom and Pop establishments because they take pride in their product and service. This restaurant did not disappoint.

Good food at very reasonable price (like a breakfast special every day around $2.99). Family run. Seating consisted of a handful of tables. Pleasant service.

Make sure to stop in Hawthorne at Diego's Mexican Restaurant. Consistently the best food on 93 outside of Tonapah, we stop on our way to and from Reno. The food is fresh. The service is good. It is definitely not fancy but it is always...More

Only other option in town is the Cassino which looked pretty bad. Our Inn Keeper said Diego's was clean and decent food and this was an accurate assessment. Absolutely nothing exceptional, but in Hawthorne you're lucky to find anything still open. It's almost a ghost...More
