Diner Reviews
  • "Great lunch, great atmosphere, great service! This is our group "go to" spot from the office and we always enjoy it!"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Made a last-minute Friday night dinner reservation for 14 people and Diego's was able to get us in with no issues! The dinner was part of a surprise trip to Denver for my husband's 25th Birthday and they were so nice about bringing him a tequila shot and singing to him. The service was great, food came out quickly and was really good, and the chips & salsa are fantastic. Our table had a variety of beverages but the Mango Margaritas were a group favorite. Great location and really fun atmosphere. We would highly recommend to others and love to stop in again on our next trip to town."

  • "This is our new Rio. Better food and many more menu items. Very affordable with daily specials that are to die for."

  • "I have had great Mexican food experiences in Colorado but this resturant is not one of them. When the menu has pages of items to order that is the first sign that they specialize in nothing. The service is good and friendly."

  • "Went for dinner on a Friday. It was not packed. No wait for a table, but the we waited avert long time before anyone came by for adrink order or anything else. When we did order 2 over priced margaritas we waited even longer. Another server came by came by asked if we wanted anything to drink we told him we'd ordered and some time later he came back with our drinks. Don't know if they had been sitting at the bar or if the first order never made it. Food in the other hand came flying out in less than 5 minutes like it had been sitting in a steam tray."
