Description: Diablo's Cantina seamlessly creates an atmosphere that embodies both coastal cantina and modern bar. Casual yet charming, the interior's vibrant lights illuminate the one-of-a-kind hand painted murals that line the walls alongside numerous plasma screen televisions. With state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems, Diablo's Cantina provides a high-energy environment that is an enchanting complement to its enticing menu and diverse cocktail offerings. The main level of Diablo's Cantina features a dining area and walk-up frozen/specialty drink bar, while the second floor provides an unparalleled outdoor setting with an open-air bar and stage for live entertainment, all with spectacular views of the Las Vegas Strip at the best mexican restaurant las vegas. Diablo's Cantina has created a menu filled with Mexican cuisine ranging in flavors and spices. Diablo's Cantina focuses on the authenticity of Mexico's signature flavors and celebrates the comfort of the regional fare. Never one to skimp on quality, Diablo's Cantina serves hand-made guacamole and the freshest vegetables and meat into his double-stuffed burritos. In addition to fiery nacho and taco options, other tempting menu items include Stuffed Quesadillas and Sizzling Fajitas. For those diners who shy away from spice, Diablo's Cantina also offers equally impressive American bites, including Diablo's Jumbo Burger and BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich. Diablo's Cantina features two bars filled with cocktails. Drinks like these were meant to be enjoyed any time of day; try a midday Mai-Tai or a Diablo's Signature Margarita that has been declared one of the "best margaritas on the strip" before you continue your fiesta out on the town.

So many choices in Vegas! I loved Diablo's. Great food, great indoor/outdoor dining vibe and average priced for Vegas pricing. The price was worth the quality of food. REALLY large, fabulous mixed margaritas!

“GREAT food & value”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Finding good food for a decent price is hard in vegas! I have now been to Diablo's twice and loved it both times. We split the chicken and steak fajitas and they were terrific. we also ordered the chicken quesadillas and couldn't finish it all - the waiter said these were two of the smaller menu items.. so be sure to share and dont over order. Good margaritas and fun atmosphere!

Our waiter wasn't good, slow to come back with drinks, one time admitted he just didnt put a drink order in. We still got the food fast and it was delish!

“Worst experience ever.”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

We arrived here mid-day and ordered a beer, water and 2 tacos. It took about 30 minutes to get the drinks to the seats at the bar. Shortly after the drinks arrived so did the bill - without any food! We ignored the bill and sipped our drinks. The bartender (John) came up to us, picked up the unpaid bill folder and slammed it down on the bar again (our food still hadn't arrived). We decided to pay the bill without tipping as our order was not yet complete. The bartender picked up the bill folder and perhaps because he discovered that he wasn't tipped, proceeded to slam items on the bar near to where we were seated - almost aggressively and created a lot of discomfort. After another 15 minutes our food arrived, we both tasted it and found it to be tasteless and mushy. We decided not to eat it and left.

“Watered down drinks!!!!”
Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

Quite possibly the best combo nachos we have ever had but that doesn't make up for the watered down booze. We watched the bartender make a on the rocks margarine with a really heavy pour-I approved even though there was a lot if rocks. However one sip told me it was all mix and no real Rita. I was even more shocked at $12 each. Honestly with that much booze on my empty stomach I should have been a happy camper but de nada. No matter how good the food, the crappy attitude of the wait staff and the audacity to water down bottles of booze means I will forever tell anyone I can of their dishonest business practices.!

“great nachos”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

We finally stopped in after passing this place a hundred times. My husband and I ordered the combination nachos. Wow, they were the best and we couldnt even put a dent in them. It could have feed 4 people easy. The prices are a bit high, but so is everything else these days in vegas. Do your self a favor and dont come to vegas if your on too tight a budget. Cant say much about the service, didnt see them that much. The nachos were worth the visit though. We will be back.
