If I had the option, this would be a 3.5 star review…I lean upwards because service was great (Meredith was our server, hopefully you get an incentive for positive comments on TA).
Wife and I came on a Friday night, Hostess informed us of a 20minute wait; this was expected as we didn’t have a reservation. We walked around the block and received a text message saying our table was ready about 10 minutes early- awesome!
My wife is 31 weeks pregnant and wanted a non-alcoholic margarita, she loved it. I’m a traditionalist but decided to try the Hibiscus “well” margarita…delicious and really not sweet at all. The tequila and salt helped with that to be sure.
I ordered the Tacos: 1 chorizo, 1 pork and 1 steak. The better half ordered Tacos as well: chicken, tofu and black beans, 1 each. We both opted for the “make it rancheros” for $2. They added pico de gallo, queso fresco, crispy fresh lettuce and some sort of crema. The chorizo taco was by far the best, meatiest and most flavorful taco. Pork was delicious and I’ll come back to ask for a mound of that slow roasted pork with a pile of rice and some tequila. Steak was okay, small bits, under-seasoned and saved by flavor of a well healed grill. I didn’t try my date’s tacos but we both agreed that they all would have been missing A LOT without that “ranchero” addition.
No rice or refried beans served with the Tacos, fine, it’s the “taqueria” section of the menu…but no option to add these items as an additional side.
Food came out 5 minutes after ordering it, which really shortens the dinner part of date night. Plus we were really enjoying the chips and salsa duo served gratis. Even if they can assemble the food quickly, pace it out a little!
Another funny thing about Diegos, background music consisted of Talking Heads and other personal yet random favorites of mine, albeit not what you expect at a Cantina named Diegos.
Will be back!
