We live in the neighborhood and usually I don't review stuff that isn't part of my travel, but I just love this place so much. They have hearty meals including vegetarian and omnivore. It's not for high end food consumption, more of a neighborhood joint with cheap eats to fill you up. I love the look of the place (very... More

I long for a place like Dos Gringos. It's a warm and inviting restaurant with a pleasant patio. In the morning the owner can be seen selling $1 cups of cup "on the run", a dollar for a cup of coffee - unheard of in today's world. Bagels, egg sandwich, waffle- everything I tried was delicious. If you want fast... More

We stopped here for a late afternoon coffee and pastry (the chocolate brownie), and were pleasantly surprised. The wait staff was friendly and helpful; and the other patrons also seemed quite happy with their orders, including a mother and her 3-year-old; a couple; and two individuals who were on their computers. There is no wifi, however, so I guess these... More

the regulars who obviously love this cafe for what it is: a wonderful place to order (or sit down to order) a proper coffee drink or bagel or other, run by "real human beings" who intercat with their (mostly fiercely loyal) customers (yes that is still possible in this day and age) and - horror - don't EVEN make wifi...

It's amazing how mercilessly savaged this place is on Yelp. People hate the food, the service, the atmosphere, the attitude ..... it goes on endlessly. And yet the place is still open. I'm learning two things about Mt. Pleasant eateries. One, most of them (but not all) are seriously bad. Two, that the bad ones are either all money-laundering fronts... More

I stumbled across this cafe after visited the Farmers Market last Saturday, I was going to go the Flying Fish, but there was no where my dog can go. Dos Gringos has a patio with a few tables, and I can tie my dog to the fence. I only had a soy latte, and the latte was very sugary and... More

But this place is terribly disgusting. I tried it once a few months ago and ordered a turkey burrito. It was terrible. I think I ate about 1/3rd of the thing. So I thought that maybe I just got a bad item. This morning I returned with a hungry wife around 9am. She ordered an egg burrito and I asked... More

Dos Gringos is a cute, locally owned and operated cafe in Mt. Pleasant. They've been around for well over a decade, at least as long as I've been in DC (2001). The menu is decent - healthy, light breakfast/lunch type stuff. It's a good place for a low key brunch and has great outdoor seating. I do wish they had... More

I cannot fault the service, food, price or location of this gem. We went for breakfast and ordered a Plato Tipico (delicious and filling: plantain, black bean 'mash', spiced scrambled eggs, sour cream and salsa), a soda, a Strawberry and Banana Smoothie and a Breakfast Burrito (Steak and Egg) - all delicious and under $20 in total. The portions are... More

Dos Gringos is just great! Great food, great ice-cream, great service and overall great eating. There is nothing not to like about this place, from the friendly greeting to the community feeling. This is more than just a terrific sandwich bar (eat in or take out) that serves amazing home-made ice-cream, it deliberately sets out to be a place where... More
