While the wait staff is friendly and competent, the food is not the best. Large portions and great prices, but the food itself is tasteless. Tastelessness is not what I want in a Mexican restaurant.

I enjoy the delicious meals they serve up here, in this quaint environment. The service is always friendly and efficient. The prices are very reasonable. Happy hour beer and wine is half price. Nice to stop in for a meal, while avoiding the rush hour traffic.

I had dinner here with my two teenagers and we all thought the food was delicious, the service very friendly and the price was reasonable. My daughter and I both had fajitas and they came sizzling along with warm tortillas and a full plate of "extras" - guac, salsa, beans, etc. This restaurant is in the back of an unassuming... More

Definitely had better. Can't quite figure out how I called ahead, arrived on time, it wasn't ready, and yet it was cold. Strange. I think I'll go elsewhere next time.

This restaurant is LOS Amigos, not DOS Amigos. This is a charming local place a bit out of the way. The food was delicious with a beautiful presentation. I had a chili verde burrito plate, and my wife had a chicken and tortilla salad, all excellent.

This is a fantastic authentic Mexican restaurant with food that is real traditional recipes. The food is delicious and fresh The staff is right at your service. It's in the back of the center and well worth you exploring. A little locals place with very friendly service.

Try the chicken flautas, they are wonderful. Also had the nachos and they were delightful too. Homemade salsa, guac, and pico completed the meal. I'll definitely be back!

Very friendly service and the food was very fresh and tasted wonderful. We had carnitas and chile verde burritos and had enough to bring home for lunch the next day. House wine was very good and very reasonable. Granddaughter loved her quesadilla and refried beans. Will definitely return.

Los Amigos (the place's current name) is tucked away in the back corner of a small shopping center that features a number of interesting restaurants. We've slowly been working our way through each one, and we've revisited Los Amigos a number of times during that process. The interior is nothing fancy, but it doesn't need to be. The food is...

Dos Amigos is one of my favorite restaurants for Mexican food on the Peninsula, it's a hidden gem. I have frequented it since as Los and Dos Amigos, great service.
