Great happy hours, but expensive tacos. I like it though. I also like cats. Cats are cool, but I think i like cats more than tacos.

I used to love Diablo! Their popsicles were delicious, beer - cheap, food - great. It was the best happy hour in the neighborhood and I've taken every visitor to LA there. Sadly, the quality started faltering several months ago, around the time they made all of the dunking popsicles (not to be confused with the dessert paletas) spicy, salty, and -- worst of all -- watered down. I miss the old Yuzu Lime pop that was good enough to eat on its own, and which made the bottom half of your beer taste magical after you finally gave in and dropped it into the glass. The old spicy tomato popsicle was fantastic, too, and they occasionally had other great flavors with super dunkability. Now, the popsicles are terrible, getting worse each time I drop in. My recent visitors have all commented that it's as if whoever's making them doesn't actually taste test any of the batches. The sangria (which also used to be great) tasted watered down last night at happy hour, too, when I reluctantly ordered it after my disappointing Michelada. The vegan burrito that made me go nuts in April was 90% hard black beans plus a bay leaf last night, hardly gourmet or flavorful. I'm truly not one to complain needlessly, I just want to get the feedback to Diablo that I would love to keep coming in and bringing friends, I just can't stand to see the quality go down so badly. If you can't have a happy hour without watering it down, don't have one at all. I'd gladly pay full price for the old flavor explosions I used to get at Diablo.

After driving by the place since it opened, we finally stopped in last night. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't anything special. By way of food, don't expect proper Mexican. They are upfront about that -- this is American comfort food delivered on a taco platform. The menu seemed to try a little too hard to mimic things from the TV shows and food trucks, but the execution just wasn't there. The line up and order method was a little slow with only one register open (hint to owners: also makes it really unlikely people will go back for a second drink!), but the woman behind the counter was one of the best we've ever seen in terms of friendliness and service and attitude. Food came out in a reasonable amount of time given the crowd. I'm vegetarian, my wife is not. Veg options were limited, but to their credit there were options. The winner on that front was the corn with lime mayo, cotija cheese, truffle oil. I went in thinking the truffle was gimmick, but it actually worked and was very light. Great dish with good flavors, I ended up adding some to my tacos. Ours strangely came garnished with lemon, but we're chalking that up to the lime shortage. The mushroom tacos were slightly large pieces of portobello breaded and fried. Not seasoned well at all, and, frankly, just kind of greasy and meh. (I ended up peeling the oily breading off the mushrooms and adding seasoning.). I was hoping for actual mushrooms cooked and flavored vs fried, but if you're gonna fry something it should be flavorful and crunchy. Black beans (while I was thankful to have them as an option) were pretty bland, also not seasoned -- adding hot sauce to them helped a lot. My wife had the korean BBQ and maple chicken (?) tacos. She reported the BBQ to be bland, over cooked, and the chicken to be too sweet for her tastes (but, given the title I guess you can't be surprised it was sweet?). Duck fat rice was a hit for her. Bar menu was solid. Sangria was good. Selections of wines and prices were reasonable for the area, and they do house carafes. We're not beer people so did not sample. Prices at $5 a taco are on the high side given how plain the food was. 3 sides and 4 tacos were $35 (before tax, tip, liquor). For $17 a person, there are better Mexican options. For the money, and for superior quality and flavor, I'd go to Mixto (but, of course, you can't sit and have a beer and relax at Mixto unless you take it home or get delivery). Definitely a decent place to stop and grab a taco snack on the way home, but not a destination for our restaurant rotation. I think the way to go would be drop in on an afternoon for some nachos and a beer, or maybe a happy hour on the way home from work. (The nachos looked great and the brunch also looks like it could be good.) So, my rating isn't based on anything "bad", but more like the rating indicator states "It's OK". I'm sure we'll drop in for nachos some time as the vibe was good, but overall nothing special. --arun baheti

Decent tacos and fun bar. Lots of better places nearby, but this one isn't too bad.

Some tacos very good (pork belly and one other) and others just meh. All of them literally dripping nasty grease everywhere. Atmosphere good though.

Not your mom's taco place. Their tacos are creative experiences, not to be missed. Don't hesitate to order the ones that seem the most strange--they'll be worth it. And, whatever you do, order the Michelada with the spicy popsicle--it's one of the best drinks in town. Bonus--they have a parking lot and the prices are amazingly reasonable.
