One sees quality immediately upon entrance to what looks like a Steak House; not your typical Mexican decor. The friendly greeting and excellent service puts you in the mood for what will be a very high quality meal. I had pork carnitas as I was curious as I do not recall seeing it being offered in other restaurants. It turned... More

Let me begin by saying I grew up 10 miles from the southern border and this was the best experience I can remember. The salsa is wonderful and home made. I had the carnitas and could not stop eating it right into oblivion. I wattled out of the place it was so good They even had Modelo on tap another... More

We wanted a quick meal and our destination was closed so we decided to try Diego's. They have a menu that incorporates burgers, sandwiches, salads, Mexican food, and some pasta entrees. We elected Mexican, carnitos tacos, fish tacos, and chicken mole enchiladas, I got to taste them all and they were all sooo good. They come with black beans, green... More

We were doing some traveling for the 4th of July and found ourselves in Redmond at dinner time. TripAdvisor led us to Diego's and I'm so very glad it did! The service was superb. What amazed me most was the menu.. The variety of choices were incredible. The chips and salsa were very good (usually a good sign). When the... More

Went here to compare with our meals we had at Madalines.. Decor and music here don't really align with an authentic Mexican meal.. All our dishes were ok. In particular the skirt steak was much better at Madalines.. Service was ok.. Overall value is ok. Madalines delivers better on all fronts..

A totally positive experience. The food surpassed my expectations, and the serving portions were quite generous. Being from Texas, I'm use to Tex Mex, and this is definitely different from the norm, Excellent food! Strongly recommend this restaurant.

I ordered the house special arroz con Cameron's. It also comes arroz con pollo. The rice sauce with several types of peppers and thick sliced mushrooms and browned onions was the best I have ever eaten anywhere. More vegetables and rice and the four large pawns were firm and tasty. When we first sat down hot chips with a medium... More

What a great little place to enjoy very flavorful Mexican cuisine. The wait staff are attentive, and the food is not your typical boring Mexican. The Shrimp and Carne Asada were very tender and better than I have had in years. Try their Margaritas too, very unique and lively.

Great food every time. I usually find favorites at a restaurant, but here I look for new and have enjoyed EVERY meal. The servers are knowledgeable, friendly, and cheerful. No reservations, so get a drink at the bar and meet some new friends.

Sort of the old standard for downtown Redmond. Emphasis on Mexican food but lots of different stuff including Osso buco. Service is usually very good and wait staff friendly. My only objection is the acoustics...quite loud and difficult to converse. Good value.
