While the inside of the restaurant is gorgeous - very cool decor! - that's about all that's impressive with this place. The concept of a pay-for salsa bar isn't a bad idea, but you pay up for that...and the food largely disappoints, especially if you're vegan/vegetarian.

Diablitos offers indoor and outdoor seating. My favorite part of this place is sitting inside and checking out all the cool decorations. The ambiance is pretty quiet but casual. I've gotten frozen mango margaritas (they have a lot of flavor options!) and a classic margarita on the rocks. I would recommend the flavored ones because the classic one was a... More

Ordered tacos and nachos. Tacos fell apart because of being overstuffed and greasy. Nacho chips were fine, very few chips in relation to the toppings. Wait staff was pleasant.

We end up coming here more and more often. The fresh salsa bar is pretty great, but that's just the start. The street tacos are perfect for lunch or dinner and everything that we've tried has been great. The margaritas are made fresh to order and the service here is fantastic. This place isn't that well known really, but it's... More

Diablitos is a fun restaurant offering authentic Mexican food. They have a fun outdoor patio that allows pets. Their margaritas are refreshing and tasty with a wide variety of Mexican food items. Great location in mid-town if visiting the sites of St. Louis or an evening at the Fox. Great crowd for families or a fun night out with your... More

First off this place's decor is top notch. The food was ok, nothing special. The service was poor. A member of my party asked to substitute refried beans for ground beef in a dish only to have the server come back to say the chef said it wasn't possible. It was a tortilla dish, how was it not possible? The... More

Walking in, the place is beautiful. The decor was great. Chips were good, salsa bar was nothing to rant over. The Mango one was the only one worth trying. Margaritas are over priced and not even good. Food is over priced and terrible. My husband and I both had "The Austin" and the description wasn't what we were expecting. So,... More

I found Diablitos on Roadside America for their tequila drinking T-Rexes on the building. The food was all really good. The salsa bar had great options. Our fajitas were awesome. They had rotating happy hour specials all evening. My kids loved their meals. The inside decor is really cool. The star lamps are gorgeous. I would definitely return here when... More

The food here was quite good and the portions were appropriate unlike most Mexican places where you get huge platters of food. The drinks were good but as with most places there are no prices on anything except the tequila shots so if you get something other than that ask your waiter the cost so you won't be surprised when...

Responded to an email for a 4 course Tequila pairing menu. Group setting- low key. Food was very good. (shrimp, pork, taco, tilapia) Tequila pairing was outstanding. Met friendly folks and looking forward to next event. The Cantina is a photographer's delight- as many were taking pictures of the décor and star lights. A fun evening! Went as a couple.
