Diego Pops

Quite possibly one of the most “fashionable” Mexican restaurants in the Valley, Diego Pops is all about atmosphere. Accented with furniture in bright colors like magenta and turquoise, Diego Pop’s exposed brick walls are hung with stark modern art, though the wooden-beamed ceiling draped in lights and potted plants do lend a warmer feel to the space. Margaritas are the order of the day, and Diego Pops doesn’t mess around; their cocktail offerings span from the locally inspired prickly pear margarita and oaxacan sunrise—a refreshing medley of guava, ginger beer and El Silencio Espadin Mezcal—to “snow cone” margaritas like mango elderflower and watermelon lime. Diego Pop’s tequila flights are another highlight, allowing guests to sample a selection of three personally chosen tequilas or mezcals paired with house-crafted sangrita. The food menu sticks to what it knows: tacos, burritos and poke with adobo BBQ chicken, freshly diced ahi tuna and even a vegetarian plantain option. Diego Pops also caters to its dessert lovers with a unique “treat bar,” offering churro and chocolate sundaes (to name a few), a “choco taco,” and the chance to build your own ice cream from a variety of fresh fruits, candies and whipped cream. diegopops.com.
