Review // Diego Pops
I’ve been wanting to go to Diego Pops for a really long time, ever since I came to Scottsdale as a tourist years ago and saw a little hut-like establishment with a neon pink sign outside.
I finally went inside and was greeted by the coolest walls ever. There was a sign that read “Peace, Love & Tequila” – awesome life mantra -, a badass picture of Frida up, anda bright neon phrase in Spanish with “Mexico” lit up in pink.
I’d of course, heard about their delicious tacos, and trust me, they were amazing, but what really stole the show were the Brussel Sprout Nachos! First of all, I know this sounds a strange. Brussel Sprouts? Really? But just go ahead and order it with your friends/family/significant other and you will not regret it. The Brussel Sprouts, Oaxaca cheese, picked onions, and even a fried egg – all of it worked together. The cheese was so creamy and balanced out the sprouts while the nachos provided a base. I’m still perplexed on why this dish tasted so delicious. I honestly almost forgot about my tacos because I became distracted with these Brussel Sprout Nachos, that’s how good they were!
As for service, it wasn’t perfect; the service was a little slow, despite not having too many people there, and our food was out and waiting to be picked up at the counter so that by the time it got to us it was lukewarm.
Despite this, it won’t deter me from returning. I unfortunately didn’t get a chance to try their margaritas, but they have both a Watermelon Mint Margarita and a Prickly Pear Margarita which both sound bomb. Or just my excuse to go back!
