Second visit to Amigos and very similar experience to first time. The food is mostly good and I would suggest sharing rather then one main meal each. The problem again is the service - we had a variety of tacos, nachos and wings to share. No plates offered so we ate of serviettes. No one came to ask if all... More

I had the nachos here last night. The place is super small and crowded and difficult to hear each other speak over the noise. The nachos were okay, but not worth the extravagant price tag for what was essentially a bag of corn chips and some cheese. While reasonably eatable, I found the nachos overly greasy. I woke up incredibly... More

My brother and his family love this place. I find it wildly overrated. No flavour in the food and the smell In the restaurant is a bit vomit-like. If I want to eat Mexican, I'd much rather go to Guzman y Gomez- at least that is more authentic.

Love the decor and ambience of this place. Second time I visited as I live interstate. With my friend we ordered 20 buffalo wings with frank's sauce with dips on the side (ranch, blue cheese and coriander) and a jug of sangria....DELICIOUS!! And HOT!! The sangria helps with that. Then we also ordered fajitas for one. A lot of food... More

I'm a local. I've been dining at this establishment for over 22 years. Tonight's meal, was nothing short of disappointing. Fiesta Chicken ( an Amigos signature dish) was dry, stale and tasteless,not the usual delicious creamy texture it usually has. Our Con queso dip was a wad of congealed, warm cheese. Oily and tasteless. Burritos were dry, salty and the... More

Disappointing from beginning with no explanation at time if booking regards 2 dinner sessions & limited table time. Option of banquet poor, array of bland heavy dips. Mains enchiladas not fresh with the fillings ordinary at vest.Cocktails substandard. Decor bright and lively but not enough to save the donning experience. We will NOT be going back.

All my restaurant reviews come down to two things - food and service. If this is right I can forgive most other things... Firstly the food - excellent! Would highly recommend ordering many dishes and sharing - the chicken wings were the highlight for us but all the food was wonderful. Service was good for the basics as in seating... More

Been here several times. Obviously taco Tuesdays are the go to with cheap tacos and tequila. Service can be a little slow during busy times but I guess that's to be expected.
