Recommended by locals, several times, we stopped by for a late lunch in a busy Saturday. Got seats st the bar while waiting for a table. Busy bartenders made delicious Margarita cocktails and served up some great and fresh Mexican food. White and wheat tortillas are a nice option. Guacamole we ordered wasn't The spicy version but was fresh and... More

Food was good; drinks ok. I didn't like the fact they refused to plug my iPhone anywhere very rude in my opinion; i needed by GPS so badly.We here in town for 2 days and it was our first time there. Didn't like either that they have a very small bathroom outside the restaurant for everybody and they only have... More

When we come here I insists that we go to Diego's. Their cocktail list serves a variety of libations and they have an extensive menu that has an array of choices. We started with the pork belly spring rolls and they were amazing. On the advise of our server I went with the Cali Burrito and my boyfriend went with... More

Great Mexican food with a twist of local taste! I had the Korean BBQ tacos, they were great! Serving sizes were large. Get there early or set up reservations. We beat the crowd by five minutes, those behind were told the wait would be an hour or longer due to reservations. Highly recommend! Friendly service and attentive.

We went to Diego's on Friday after my brother talked us into going out. He raved about their food and drinks and after visiting, I totally agree with him. They have an extensive drink menu - all very unique drinks. Their food was delicious and they had a decent gluten free menu. The service was very good - both at... More

Planned on coming here for dinner with large party. Wish I had been warned they are not equipped for large parties. Upon arrival, servers were just plain rude. Wish I caught one woman's name... Crammed our group against the wall where back row had to move iron round tables to get to their seats. The restaurant is a very small... More

Stopped in for lunch - we were 2 couples and a baby and were promptly seated. Cool kind of hipster vibe. Drinks (bloody Mary's and Downeast hard cider on tap) were exceptional. For food others in our party ordered quesadillas and chicken tacos. Chicken tacos were deemed "best taco I've ever tasted" and quesadillas were excellent too. I tried their... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The menu was a bit limited but the food was great. Fresh and everything made from scratch, no bought in re-heats here. Relaxed atmosphere with modern decor and good value for money.

We looked at the menu and the food sounded great! Very disappointing when it came out. The place is cold, dark, noisey, the staff are disinterested at best, the tables were dirty, the food very ordinary. On our way home we walked past a restaurant with yellow and white awnings, don't know what it was called but it was packed... More

The margaritas were very good. The service was good. The quality of the food was very good. Atmosphere: was ok Food: Duck empanadas very good, tacos were bland, too much lettuce and the rice was awful. We tried fried cod tacos and pork belly tacos.
