Latest Diego's news and reviews

JM and Nichole ate the seafood enchiladas.
The bill was $14 plus tip.
JM gave Diego's a C+; Nichole gave Diego's a C- (see our grading rubric).

We were kind of lazy about Diego's, the place in the old Moe's, run by the Frida folks. It was Friday and we'd both been snacking on office junk food all day, so we weren't susceptible to the temptations of Mexican plate lunch on State Street. Diego's menu doesn't look like much anyway.  There are the same kinds of dishes that you'd expect at Casa del Sol or La Mestiza at about the same prices, but this is downtown Madison where you may expect something a little different. 

Diego's seafood enchiladas

We split the seafood enchiladas - "corn tortillas with shrimp, salmon, lobster meat and cheese topped with roasted red pepper cream sauce, finished with melted cheeses." They were pretty salty & sloppy. The seafood itself was pretty good although you learn not to expect too much of shrimp in the heart of the Midwest in the heart of cooked Mexican dish. The service was great but those tall tables are still awkward.

We got to go in the skywalk across Dayton Street, though, and saw a super-safe stepstool.
