Diablo Review

Families and sports fans flock to this downtown Mexican restaurant and bar, which makes up in comfort eats what it may lack in authenticity. Generously portioned entrées hit the spot—such as Dana’s mini burrito, which is anything but small, stuffed with rice, beans, meat, veggies, and cheese, and topped off with enchilada sauce, guac, and sour cream. A fresh filet of red snapper comes with four preparation options, including the muy caliente Diablo-style, with tomatoes, garlic, and chile de arbol. Unfortunately, the carnitas, labeled “Alberto’s Favorite,” were disappointingly dry. The restaurant has plenty of quirks, such as “market price” guacamole and street vendors who are allowed to roam the tables, hawking roses and balloon art. The large covered patio out front is heaven on nice evenings, and the bar boasts wide-screen televisions and 184 tequilas. Lunch and dinner daily, brunch Sun.
