Citysearch Editorial Review – Red and black dominate the color palate of this taqueria, which evokes a devil's lair with dark design elements like deer antler light fixtures, heavy metal T-shirt clad waiters and a sign reading "Hell is empty, all the devils are here." But patrons' spirits are anything but dismal while downing margaritas and dining on slightly more upscale versions of standard Mexican fare. Start with the grilled corn dusted with fresh cojita cheese and tangy lime mayo, or the chunky guacamole. Follow with tacos (two for $16 or three for $20), generously stuffed with your choice of meat in homemade tortillas.
Best Mexican Restaurant in MAnhattan – Without doubt in my humble opinion this has to be the best Mexican restaurant in Manhattan. The enchiladas were amazing.
Great Fun Bar!!!!!!! – Went to Diablo last night with some of my girlfriends, a friend had told me about the place.
Had so much fun, the Bartender suggested we get ricky's (beer and frozen margarita) so good, and after a couple was well buzzed!!
the bartenders were really cool, is so nice to go to a place in Manhattan where they are actually friendly!! (cute english accents as well!!)
had great night!!! will be back!
Great for Starting a Nite or ending it.. – Diablo Rickys are Lager beer with Margarita smoothie on the bottom. Pitchers of Margaritas are always good.
Good ambiance – Must say I was disappointed, heard about this place for the food so I expected quality or something that would make me say "wow, this is SO good, you have to taste this!" That didn't happen.
However, ambiance is lovely - quiet, cozy, romantic.
Probably will not go back.
Still the best mexican in the city and a great time – i've been coming back to diablo regularly over the last couple of years and it always hits the spot for great mexican food and a good time. i've tried quite a bit of the menu and always been satisfied but I have to say, the tacos are where it's at, it's hard to order anything else. I love the el pastor taco, and the fried fish tacos. also it's very hard to resist the diablo ricky (part frozen margarita, part beer).
I loved it food was fantastic – I threw one of my dearest friends her b day party here, she loves Mexican food. I had been here before and thought the food was phenomenal. it was a total of 5 of us and truth be told for some it may have been tight but for us it was great. Probably because of the excellent Margarita we were downing.
Service was excellent and they were stomped!!! The guacamole was finger licking good!!! And the tuna fajita were delicious, not too spicy just enough. And did I mention HUGE!!!
My friend was all smiles!!!
I defiantly recommend this place and advice to make reservations, they can have a massive wait list.
for a good margarita and chips – yes, it's true - diablo is a bit overpriced, but it's in the west village, what can you expect? i think the margaritas are fantastic as well as the salsa and guacamole. the salsa has just the right amount of cilantro and the guac the right amout of everything (including lime - it's an important ingredient). the food is mediocre. i go just for the margaritas and chips. yes, also overcrowded, but again, it's new york city folks, get used to it.
LOVED Diablo! – Diablo hits all the right notes: Very good food, very good drinks served by friendly people in a great spot in the West Village. Highly Recommended!
Frat-Boy Soutwestern Grub – Chili's easily has better Southwestern fare. The corn was soggy like they boiled it first and then grilled it. The guacomole was extremely bland (asked for it spicy) and the tacos were decent. Service was suspect.....while the waiters were certainly friendly, there didn't appear to be any sense of urgency as we had to seek them out repeatedly. Decor was "Times Square themey". Place belongs in the burbs.
