Offering diners reimagined tacos, burritos and margaritas, Diego Pops puts a Scottsdale spin on the All-American classics - renowned for their Brussel Sprout Nachos topped with roasted beet crema topped with fresno chile and Sonoran Hot Dog packed with pinto beans and cotija cheese. Whilst sipping on one of the speciality margaritas, including the signature Snow Cone Margarita, diners can also enjoy the pineapple pop-art wallpaper and neon pink taco sign.
