Daughter and I stopped for lunch on her recommendation. Excellent taco special from lunch menu. Server shared insight that they smoke their own pork and brisket so I had tacos featuring each. Daughter enjoyed her fried chicken and shrimp tacos as well. Overall really good food and service. Will be back.

We had the fish, pork, and “gringo” tacos, pork taquitos, and chips and salsa...all were fantastic! The Mexican sodas are worth a try. Even the beans and rice were a step-up...everything was fresh and cooked to perfection. Great atmosphere and wait staff. Give it a try! We will be back!

My husband and I visit El Diablo easily once a week! We tend to stick with our favorites: Taco dinner (Pollo,Pescado) and Quesadilla with double fried chicken. Wednesday is their "Margarita Night" for half price. Everyone here is so friendly and passionate about what they do, especially Jason who greets us with a smile every time we come here. I HIGHLY recommend!

Our friends had given us mixed reviews so we had to see for ourselves. We visited on a Saturday afternoon just after 5 to avoid a wait.The Phoebus Spring Fling was just wrapping up and the restaurant was busy with patrons having a drink or two around the small bar area. The four of us were seated right away at a table in the back. The menu is very limited but the choices were nice. We chose the tacos, burritos, taco salad and chips with queso, Of course we had to try their famous margaritas. These were better than average but at $10 each should have been top shelf with fresh lime juice. The food was a little spicier than we typically find but overall it was very good. The service was a little slow due to the crowd but El Diablo is not your typical Mexican fast food restaurant. They are a little over priced but if you want to experience Mexican with an upscale menu in a trendy location this is not a bad choice and it is just off I-64 at the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel.

Quaint Mexican restaurant was jam-packed on this Spring Saturday! Split a Margarita and a Quesadilla, both tasty. Service was wonderful and kept things moving. Nice experience!!
