The Best Mexican restaurant in the Ft Madison area, the food is great and the service is good. The taco, fajitas and enchiladas are very good.

My nephew and his mom used to live here in town and love Amigos. So, of course we had to eat there for old time sake. My favorite appetizer are the soft shell fried chips and Salsa. The Entees are even better.

Amigos is a go-to place for many of my friends and me. The authentic nature of the food is a major force of this restaurant. The soft shell tacos and flour chips are the main reason that I go there on regular visits. It is packed with customers on Friday and Saturday evenings! If you need to relax, have a... More
