Very pleased to find this restaurant. My first experience with fish tacos and they were delicious. Also wonderful "homemade" guacamole. Entered on a cool, rainy night and immediately felt at home.

Great Mexican Food
We loved the atmosphere, service and amazing food. The salsa bar was unique and great selection of salsa from mild to hot. I had the tamales and they were just like homemade and the best tamales I have had in St. Louis. We took home churros that were perfect for dessert. Will definitely return for more great food!

Wonderful service, great food
Wonderful service, great food and awesome salsa bar - what more can you ask for? The ambiance was fantastic and the staff were phenominal. Would definitely go back, especially since my 3 kids also loved the food.

Great mexican food
There are a few different kinds of mexican places in St. Louis that you may go to for different reasons:
- Places with less ambience but awesome more authentic mexican food. I think of places on Cherokee Street in South City.
- Places that are fun and laid back bars with a happy cinco de mayo feel all the time, regardless of whether the food or drinks are good. Many of these places are chains and somewhat kitschy.
I believe Diablitos has mastered the best of both worlds. Their food is very good... I don't know that I would say authentic mexican but good portions, well prepared, and the salsa bar with like 10 salsas is a must-do. At the same time the character and feel of the place is fun and festive but not gaudy. Great spot!

Dinner at Diablitos
We are very impressed with this place. Great food, and the salsa bar is fantastic. Only Mexican place that I have ever been to that offers such a great selection of wonderful salsas. The only problem we had was that the piped-in music outside where we were seated was extremely loud and couldn't be turned down. Very hard to have a conversation. Other than that, a wonderful experience, and we will definitely be back.

Nice Afternoon at Diablitos
Got finished with appointments early one afternoon and decided to try Diablitos for a late lunch. We sat outside in their covers "porch" area....cute décor. Most f the lunch traffic was gone...only two other tables inside. Great tunes playing (selected by the bartender we were told) our server told us about their famous salsa bar. $2 each gets you Warm never ending baskets of homemade chips PLUS get you choice of any or all of the 12 different fresh salsas. She saved us the trip and brought us small dishes of all to taste. We were welcome to more but we still has lunch coming! We indulged in a pitcher of Margaritas (really good house style) and enjoyed Pastor Tacos & La Isla Burrito. I thought the braised pork was delicious! We will repeat!

We love authentic Mexican food!! While in Mexico we always leave our resort to seek out the locals. This is the closest we've found in STL to our experiences in Mexico!! DELICIOUS! The salsa bar was an exciting surprise.

We sat on the back patio with the fire pit. It was great. We loved the salsa bar and the new menu is wonderful for ordering several kinds of tacos to share. We stayed long after the food was done. The wait staff was pleasant and attentive.

Don't go if you are in a hurry!
Great food! Crispy thin, hot fresh tortilla chips & fresh salsa bar. Great happy hour & fantastic variety of Mexican specialties to choose from. Just don't be in a hurry to leave - service is extremely slow. Good thing we had good company and plenty to catch up on.

Loved the salsa bar! Some
Loved the salsa bar! Some in our group of seven did not like the idea of paying $2 per person and opted out, but it is well worth it and I am sure the restaurant cuts down on wasted product. The street tacos were good and they have a large selection of them. Diablito's is a great stop before the theater or any event at SLU.
