About this Business
From Our Editors
Diablitos Cantina's Chef de Cuisine didn't invent the dishes he serves from scratch. Rather, he traveled to Cabo San Lucas to learn authentic Mexican cuisine, from time-honored cooking techniques to specific dishes to the tradition of using locally sourced ingredients. He brought the things he learned back to the United States, where they are the driving force in the Diablitos Cantina kitchen.
The restaurant's menu reflects authentic Mexican cuisine, ranging from pineapple-braised barbecue pork tacos and burritos to steak or veggie-filled tortas. To top it off, every ingredient is sourced from Foundations Farms in Belleville, Illinois or from Mexico. This practice replicates that fresh-from-the-farm flavor found in the street eateries of Mexico.
Amid the lively dining room atmosphere, diners can pair their food with selections from one of the most extensive tequila menus in St. Louis, with many choice varieties directly imported from Mexico. The bartender, who herself traveled to Oaxaca to better understand mescal and tequila, hosts a weekly tasting club called Tequila 101 to share the knowledge she gained.
