While it’s not taco Tuesday, we’ll take any excuse for a mid-week celebration to enjoy our favorite dishes. From blackened fish to pork, steak, shrimp, and chicken, our only problem is deciding where to start. Taco bout a holiday you won’t want to miss.



Why is Diegos known for its tacos? Don’t ask us, try one of their famous dishes:  watermelon tacos, fried chicken tacos, and loaded fish tacos have us coming back for more every time.

Order the short rib tacos or go for the surf & turf tacos, which include one taco with grilled steak, caramelized onion, bacon jam and sweet potatoes; and the other with fried lobster legs, avocado salsa, and cilantro vinaigrette. Pretty sure you’ll know where to find us.
