Dos Diablos - Chicago reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Not going back
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 1/12/2013
    I'm a young guy and the speakers were just way too loud...don't take a date here. They also try to nickel and dime you for things like extra cheese, sour cream, stuff like that. I live in the area and won't be going back, there's better, more customer focused restaurants to go to.

    I haven't come back to this place since May 2010 and back then we had a wonderful experience. We came back in December 2012 and felt like something was missing. They since added a mechanical bull which made it very interesting for us to watch people fall all over the place. The food was pretty average and even their chili was not spectacular. Somehow our return was not up to par. Good Food but not something I will highly recommend

    I went to Dos Diablos twice before when they first opened and the food was was very good. It seems as if now this is a bar with food. The food was barely luke warm and was definitley not the same good quality. Most of the other people were drinking and eating appetizers and riding the bull - which is also new. Many of the dining tables have been removed to both make room for the bull and others were replaced with bar type tables. The music was blasting and we had to wear our coats. They had the heat turned down. I will not go back. Overall it was not a good experience.

    I judge my mexican fare with the following idiom: my expectations drop the higher the food is priced. And this place is pretty expensive for mexican fare. There are tons better places with tastier mexican food, mostly located in other parts of the city. I went for lunch so I cant judge the drinks but the food is definitely not the star of this party.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 9/16/2012
    Second visit to Dos Diablos, our first on a Sunday night at 7pm. OpenTable only showed availability at 6:45 and 7, but when we showed, there were like 3 other tables that were occupied in the entire dining area?? What's going on OpenTable. Fajitas were really good but we got served the wrong rice side and the mojito had like ten times the amount of mint than anything else and was all mint flavor, the fair rating goes to the bartender for the mojito.

    We had a reservation at 8:15-8:30. When we checked on our table at 8:45, they had given away our table. We didn't sit until 9:30. I know mistakes happen, but they could have given us a complimentary guacamole or something. The atmosphere was good but the food was 2-stars at best. Would not recommend this restaurant.

    Great food, served hot. House salsa was very tasty and different (served warm). Servers should be more knowledgeable about the food and preparation, although eager to inquire on our behalf. All in all, a good place for Mexican, and I would love to see some Mole dishes to compliment the current menu.

    The food was pretty decent, but it was WAY overpriced for a Chicago Mexican restaurant. Virtually twice as much as you would expect for practically everything. For that reason alone, I'll probably find another Mexican joint in the area. An entree of tacos and a side of guacamole was over $30 out the door and that was on the LUNCH menu.

    Just a down right fun place to go for some Mexican food and margaritas. Loved the salsa - had a nice kick to it. Started with the guacamole - very good - portion a little on small side. Then shared chicken taco which were good. Had a few margaritas - some traditional and some frozen or fruity. Ended with the chocolate tamale desert which was very good. Table was next to the mechanical bull ring which made it even more fun. Definitely a place to check out and/or start the evening.

    Went for an early dinner on a Friday night. Not very crowded but the noise level was almost unbearable. Guess if you wanted to scream your conversations it's OK. Having more than 2 at a table would be impossible to hear anyone else. Food was fine and service was good. Wine selection did not exist-house that was it.

    The food was very good as expected. This was the 2nd time in the past year at this restaurant. We were visting Chicago with our daughters and because of the great experience at the restaurant in November 2011, we decided to visit again. I was a little disappointed in the change in atmosphere from my last visit. I don't like the change to more of a roudy bar than a quite classy restaurant. We thought we were at the wrong place when we saw the bull in the window. But food is very good, and the salsa is amazing. Great vegetable fahitas, guacamole, tacos, and rice to name a few.

    Dos Diablos was fabulous! There were 8 of us (four 25-year olds, two 9-year olds, and the 2 of us parents) and there were plenty of options for everyone. The salsa is served warm and it's outstanding. Carnitas were also wonderful! We also enjoyed margaritas and fresh guacamole. A few of us were interested in watching the last half of an NFL game and they just happened to be viewing it on one of the many flat-panel tv's in the restaurant. The lighting is dimmed very nicely, also, for more of an upscale feeling. We will definitely return to this restaurant. I used to be a Frontera Grill lover, but Dos Diablos just topped my list.
