Looking for a quick and cheap lunch in Hell's Kitchen, I ended up at Diego's Mexican Grill. I immediately noticed the warmth of this place, thanks to the exposed bricks and the Mexican floor tiles. Very colorful, with lots of art on the walls, this is like going to Mexico without paying the fare.

Food wise, they serve the classics: fajitas, quesadillas...There, I tried their homemade guacamole that was good and well seasoned.

Then, I went for the chicken quesadilla, that was just ok: a bit dry, they could have thrown some sour cream and guacamole (I put some of the one ordered as an appetizer).

It was served with rice and beans that were good, but nothing to rave about.

This was fine for a cheap lunch, but did not really entice me to go back, at least at this point. There are plenty of cheap eats that are much better in Hell's Kitchen and Diego's Mexican Grill fell short in convincing me to go back for dinner. 

Enjoy (...)!
