Diego Pops

Old Town Scottsdale has an impressive number of restaurants and eateries that stretch along the length of Scottsdale Road. Diego Pops happens to be one of those restaurants, and in this case, it is a fine example of upscale Mexican food. In fact, Diego Pops is not just your run-of-the-mill restaurant that serves an excellent taco; this venerable restaurant continues to garner rave reviews because of the innovations in the kitchen. The kitchen uses better ingredients, as diners can attest when they bite into one of the delectable dishes.

Botanas (Appetizers)

To begin a meal at Diego Pops, the appetizers feature many of the traditional classics such as guacamole, street corn, tortilla soup and the like, but the difference is all in the ingredients. For instance, the guacamole uses orange and lime, while the cheese quesadilla adds a garlic-beet crema, two ingredients you hardly see in these dishes, yet the blend of flavors is delightful.

Tacos, Bowls & More

On the Diego Pops in Scottsdale menu, guests can choose between tacos served a la carte or a bowl of rice and beans topped with their choice of protein. The adobo chicken, skirt steak, grilled shrimp, and green chili chicken are a few of the classic options that diners will find on the menu. However, other options such as the braised pineapple pork or shredded beef deserve special attention as well. If you are in the mood for something crudo (raw), the poke and ceviche are superb options. Try the Pineapple Ceviche Mixto; it comes with shrimp, salmon, ahi tuna, cucumber, red onion, red pepper, serrano chili, and cilantro in a pineapple citrus broth. The salads also follow an interesting path as well. For example, the Sweet Corn & Avocado Caesar as well as the Brussels Sprout & Prosciutto salads are unlike anything else you will see in the Phoenix.

Diego Pops Happy Hour Specials

If you cannot visit during dinner service, the happy hour features great deals that include half-off appetizers as well as wine, beer, and margaritas for a mere pittance. On Monday, get an early jump on Taco Tuesday, with specials that include all of the delectable choices mentioned above for just $3 all day long! Located at 4338 N. Scottsdale Road, open for lunch and dinner seven days a week, Diego Pops is simply one of the best Mexican restaurants in Scottsdale.
