Fayetteville Edition: Diogi's Latin Fusion

Diogi'sDiogi's Latin Fusion Restaurant is a well-known restaurant in Fayetteville that recently rebranded a bit and moved to a new location. The dog-themed restaurant serves up latin cuisine and even allows furry friends to dine alongside companions.

Diogis has a large dining area, dog photos adorning the walls and dog treats as centerpieces (didn't love that, tbh). But what I did love: the appetizer of chips and queso we scarfed down in, like, five minutes flat. Mmm queso.

The salsa was actually pretty good, too. The main menu consists of some burgers, carnitas, chimichangas, fajitas, enchiladas and tacos. What stood out to me? Fish tacos! Mmm. They came with three soft flour tortillas with grilled or fried fish, chipotle lime cabbage, pico de gallo, chipotle lime crema and fresh cilantro.

Diogi'sThese tacos were pretty good. But man they were kinda tough to eat. There were so many toppings, they were spilling out and over the edges. It was tough to get bites of all the ingredients at once. BUT, when I did manage that feat, it was the perfect combo of fried fish, fresh tomatoes and chipotle cream.

Diogi'sI had a side of fried plantains, which were just slightly sweet. But I actually nibbled on quite a few of these. Tony had the "spicy papas" as his side.

Diogi'sOverall, I think this place was good. I think my fish tacos were pretty good, actually. I just think the execution could be slightly better. Portion them out a bit so I can get all the intended flavors in a single bite. The queso was good. Tony found his meal satisfactory. The dog biscuits on my table though... not loving that.
