Small Restaurant right in between Banister's & Bowen's Wharf in Newport, Rhode Island. Absolutely amazing drinks at the bar - so many different options. The food is out of this world. Every single item on the menu is delicious. My absolute favorite restaurant around. Just wish it was bigger and had more seating.

A very young vibe with some loud music playing. The Fish tacos were excellent. Food was very FRESH and tasty. Warning, do not sit by the side exit. Workers will pass in and out none stop to get ingredients and supplies from across the street OR to empty garbage. It is a small place so this area may be difficult... More

This place may be a bit small and cramped but delivers with excellent food and drink! Went here for lunch and was not disappointed - service was excellent and food was great too. Have to say the guacamole was some of the best I have ever had.

The BBQ Korean tacos were stellar, and the atmosphere was awesome for a summer lunch. We loved our server too! She was very good.

Diego's serves breakfast, lunch and dinner on Bannister's Wharf. The outdoor seating area is pet friendly. The food is mostly Mexican with seafood, meat and vegetarian options. The portions are generous and the pricing is very affordable. The tables fill quickly on weekends but, with so much to see, waiting is not a problem.

The food was amazing! Kind of loud and cramped but the burrito was the bomb! Sooo good! The white peach sangria was the best I ever had! Great find.

The atmosphere of this newer restaurant is fun and punky. Seriously. The walls are filled with punk band memorabilia, the music is punk, but not too loud, the staff are young, skull-shirt wearing, friendly folk. The food was great, I honestly ate more chips and guacamole than my entry but it was totally worth it!

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.
