The robust menu, created by Executive Chef Saul Ortiz, boasts vibrant Mexican fare inspired by the classic cuisine of Mexico.

- Agua Chile Shrimp Ceviche: Citrus-cured shrimp mixed with cucumber, pickled onions, orange, cilantro and Fresno Chili peppers; served with tortilla chips
- Enchilada Trio: Platter of three enchiladas with mouth-watering fillings and sauces including slow-roasted beef brisket topped with a zesty pasilla sauce; chicken tinga and cheese coated with a chipotle tomato sauce; and shrimp sautéed in a garlic butter sauce, finished with a tomatillo crema and cabbage slaw
- Combination Fajitas: Sizzling skillet of Achiote-marinated steak, Adobo chicken and citrus shrimp with bell peppers, red onions and yellow squash
- Fried Platano Split: Fried, hand-pressed plantain coated with sugar, topped with cinnamon ice cream and berry compote and drizzled with condensed milk, chocolate and cajeta
To complement the flavorful bites, guests can choose from a collection of premium tequilas and handcrafted margaritas such as The Vixen, made with blanco tequila, fresh-squeezed lime juice, hibiscus and mint; or specialty drinks like the Bubbly Citrus Mojito, a citrus rum with elderflower and lime muddled with mint and topped with prosecco. Located across from the restaurant’s main entrance is Diablo’s exterior bar, a quick stop for signature drinks on the go. Here, guests can order frozen cocktails served in specialty drinkware like the El Gordo, a frozen edition of the classic margarita.
Fans of Diablo’s will recognize the abstract sombrero sculpture, which remains the focal point of the venue, while a color palette of red, purple and green, along with colorful sugar skull murals and updated fixtures transforms the room into a vibrant dining space. Large parties can be hosted in the private dining room, which seats up to 60 guests. Directly next to the exterior bar is the Diablo’s Cantina gift shop, selling general concessions, souvenirs and one-of-a-kind branded Diablo’s apparel such as hats, jackets and t-shirts.
