Nice experience. I would recommend this place. The food isn't bad.
DO NOT GO HERE.
let me first say i have watched the super bowl here two years in a row. last year i went and was fortunate enough to sit in front of a great bartender and enjoyed it enough. i did notice that some of the other staff was rude and really thought nothing of it when i was with my guy friends. however....
this year i knew i was going to be back so i made a reservation for super bowl sunday well in advance through light group. when i say well in advance i mean in november. i planned to do the same as last year; come early, and leave late. and spend a TON of money. coming from 2000 miles away, and expecting to be treated like a normal member of society was all i could ask for. after all its really about the game and spending it with the ppl i traveled with.
we couldnt have experienced more of the opposite. the staff has no idea whats going on, (do you have a freaking manager on duty, or god forbid do you call staff meetings to get everyone on the same page??) and couldnt care less about being polite. i ran one of the largest college bar in the nation in college and i know what it is like to deal with a-holes at the bar. we werent those people. in fact we are the types that will spend a lot EVERY year in that town and be loyal to the places that treat us right.
i have never written a neg review online. im doing it for one reason... because i often rely on these types of reviews to decide where to go and get viable info about places before i decide to spend my hard earned money, often multiple times.
please please please do not go here. you will regret it if you do. i dont know if it is the light group or the in house management, but this is no question the worst run venue ive ever been to on any level. find another bar/resturant... there is plenty in las vegas.
Turtles move faster than the bartenders.. The food and atmosphere is great but the fact that the bartenders, upstairs and downstairs, are complete d-bags makes me want to never return to this place. It takes way too long to get a drink here, even when it's not busy. Plus, never ask for salt with your patron when your doing a round of shots. You'll be asking to much of your bartender.
Great Atmosphere, Location, & Food. I went with a group of friends to Diablos in the afternoon. We got great seats on the top balcony and were able to watch all the people pass by on their way to NYNY or further down the strip. I had a few margaritas, which were all very good. The bar tender was very friendly and I never had to stand long to wait for my drink. We decided to order some food after awhile and put our order in with the bar tender. When the food came out, they forgot our chips & salsa, but were quick to correct this issue and apologized. No harm done in the end. This spot will be first on my list for the next Vegas trip!
STAY AWAY save some money.
1. $10 a pint for beer?
2. sitting at the bar it took 20 minutes to get my 10 dollar beer and the place wasnt even crowded. What a joke.
This Place Rocks.
Diablo's was recomended by friends who have been there before, and I finally wanted to check it out. Great bar scene with hot girls. The hostess sat me and friends right by the strip, (awsome people watching) the foot and drinks were great and they had a great music selection. After we ate, we went up to the patio bar where we spent about two more hours listening to great music and enyoying great margaritas and mojitos. All over all a fun place where you can eat and drink and chill, by over looking the strip.
will be back soon!!!!
Great Place to Watch Live Music. I absolutely love the Battle of the Bands and just heard that they are going to be starting this back up again! Yippeeee! Diablo's is a great hang out spot to watch live music. They keep the drinks coming and the upstairs patio is fun fun fun!
Dont order a drink. Mar8 2009, The 9.00 smoothy that is called a margaritta is a total fraud. happy hour is also a complete fraud. No resolution from mgmt either. Food was not bad, The service moved at the speed of smell. terrible. Not worth the money
Poor service and overpriced drinks!. My husband and I go to Vegas once a year and have dined at some awesome restaurants. Diablos Cantina is NOT one of them. We were looking for a fun place to have dinner after walking the strip. The lights and the restaurant itself were very appealing so we entered and were seated. The decor was simple and authentic. Everything on the menu was ala cart. This would be ok if the pricing was accordingly. However, a quesadilla was almost $20.00. Add rice and your looking at $25.00. I personally have never been to a mexican restaurant where the chips and salsa were not brought out right away with no charge. Here you pay for them and any sauces. (I will say the chips were very good.) Our meals were ok but definately not worth the price we paid for them. Our waiter did not come around to fill our water or see if we needed anything. I had to finally get up and go to the bar for a glass of water which was given to me in a plastic cup. We finally received our bill and could not believe they charged us $8.00 a piece for 2 domestic beers that were brought to us in a plastic non chilled mug and were a little better than room temperature. My suggestion go to Taco Bell!
Worse Service EVER.
Need I say more. My parents come in from out of town about three or four times a year. They are very good gamblers at the MGM/Mirage group. They usually stay at the Monte Carlo, but due to some issues (personal not MGM/Mirage group) they stayed at NYNY this time. We have been to Diablo's 3 three times now, and each time has been bad. We go there becuase Mom loves Mexican and we get it comped. Well this last time (yesterday at 1:30 to 2:30P) we went upstairs to sit by the railling to eat and drink. I told the host that we were going to snack and drink. She started to get menus, but then when my dad finally got up the stairs, he said he just wanted a drink so she said sit at the bar. We tried to sit at a table then she PUSHED us out of the table for someone "eating" I had planned on getting nachos, drinks (the four of us all wanted drinks, and alot of them) and other snacks.
It gets better, we moved to another table, not by the railing) and waited for another 10 minutes for a server to help us. We complained that we wanted to eat and was told we could not sit where we wanted because my dad had stated he only wanted drinks. We left and on our way out, I told a group coming in not to eat there and they turned around and left also.
They have angered both a local and a high ranking member of the MGM/Mirage players club. I will tell anyone who will listen not to go there from here on out. I also am boycotting all Light management group places from here on out. I will never eat at Diablo's again, or any of the other Light group places. I feel if you can't make it right for one person, you won't care about anyone else. The service is horrible, the staff is rude and the food is horrible. Oh and don't forget that the upstairs looks like it hasn't been cleaned in a while. Do NOT go there.
