Great lunch, great atmosphere,
great service! This is our group "go to" spot from the office and we always enjoy it!"

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."

I love to go to upscale
restaurants like all the other foodies out there. This is the only reaon I would not award the 5-star review. However, as a moderately-priced Mexican Restaurant, I am surprised when I see a bad review for Diegos.The wait staff is friendly and attentive, the food is hot, fresh and delicious and we never wait an unacceptable time for the food to arrive. Like many downtown employees, we are on a lunch schedule so we have to be choosy when picking a place to eat. I do like to read the reviews, but I'm glad that I am willing to make my own decisions and give it a try - its a great Mexican restaurant with a lot of tempting menu choices. Keep up the good work Diego's!"

My daughter and I were in Denver
and went to Diegos Mexican Food and Cantina on a Saturday night. I was surprised that the restaurant was virtually empty while the 16th Street Mall was humming with people. Chips and salsa were good and I appreciated the salsa bar. I had a combination plate that was fair but certainly nothing special. The service was attentive and not overbearing. The next time I'm in Denver, I will be sure to try somewhere different if I'm looking for Mexican/Southwest cuisine."

Sadly, one of our favorite
restaurants has experienced a steady decline in it's service and food quality since we started frequenting two years ago. Lunch and dinner service has become inattentive and poor. Orders are consistently incorrect, servers are hard to catch to fix problems, water glasses and salsa remain empty for long lengths of time. Even the food this time around was not very warm or tasty as it used to be. Having lived in Pueblo and experienced the awesomeness that is Mexican food there, this rumored "Puebloan owned" restaurant is slipping. Unfortunately we've shared this with staff and management the last few times in and nothing has changed. I think this was our last visit to Diegos."

Located in a basement location,
the restaurant tries to establish itself with a "Beach" theme. Service here was horrible despite the restaurant being nearly empty. Our server was very spotty in his presence and they "attempted" to service us with multiple people - but did not do well in this attempt. Our food arrived (only after asking why others who came in well after us were being served first) after a 40 minute wait overcooked with tough rubbery meat being the main memory of the meal. I have heard from others this place does a booming lunch business with office workers and offers a whole different experience for lunch. That said, based on this dinner experience I would never return and would strongly advise others to avoid this place."

This is located on the 16th Street
Mall....easy access. However, it is in a basement. The noise level is high, even when not many people were dining that night. The food was good but not much different than many other Mexican places I've eaten at. The waiter while not totally accurate was earnest and made every effort to make my experience there enjoyable. The self service salsa bar was practically empty....and the place wasn't that busy (I was there on a Tuesday night.)"

The shrimp tacos are wonderful,
and the staff so attentive! I will be happy to fight traffic in downtown to visit again soon!"

food, which was great."

Best house margaritas. Better than
most top shelf margaritas in town."

Chris is the best waiter in town!
He is always attentive and provides the best service. I have never seen him without a smile on his face. I come here at least once a week if not more and always ask for his section."

Food and service was good. Liked
the salsa bar. Unfortunately there was a large group of about 15 that was extremely loud and drinking too much. They sang Happy Birthday 3 times during the course of our dinner. They ruined the atmosphere for us. I'm willing to try them again but if I ran into another group like that one they will loose my business."

I was a bit disappointed with
their salsa bar, everything was a bit bland, but their margairta's were excellent and the food was decent besides. I wish there was a little more spice to the food. This restaurant is great for groups and the atmosphere is very festive!"

Food was amazing!!! Will be
returning within the week. Russ was an excellant waiter along with Marcus... Very happy. The fajita nachos were very good. Signature Margarita were highly recommended and glad it was. No problems or complaints with this place."
