At first glance was not sure that the place would be good but turned out to be fabulous. The food is very good and there is a great vegetarian choice. The service is super and there is an extra care the people there take to ensure you enjoy your visit. We ordered on take away and they actually packed a... More

Normally this is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in town, but our recent visit was a bit disappointing. I ordered a number six (taco and enchilada) and both were extremely bland. Usually there is a bit more flavor to their meat. Chips and salsa are always delicious though and the queso fundido is good if you like chorizo and... More

Dos Reales is a great place to go for fun, cheap, fast and delicious Mexican food. The atmosphere is fun, colorful Mexican decor and the service is friendly and efficient. They always seem to be busy, but we've never waited more than 10 minutes for a table. The servers are quick to take the orders and food come out of... More

The service is fast and friendly and the food is very good and full of flavor. The lunch specials are well priced. The place is very fast paced and the free chips and dip are a good bonus.

Fast service! Excellent food! Very affordable! If you want some great Mexican food you won't go wrong here. They have tables inside and out; the place is decorated in a really cool Mexican theme.

If you want real mexican food and not Taco Bell type food, this is the place to go. Fast service and friendly staff. They were really busy but seated us in a timely fashion and was right there to offer chips, salsa, and drinks with no delay. Our food came out fast too and the special that day was fantastic....it...

The restaurant was jammed packed on Sunday night we visited and they still managed to give us great service and the food was perfectly prepared and came out very quickly. My husband and I split the special of the Fruits du Mer (fish/seafood) Fajita's and they were excellent. Properly prepared and very tasty. There was enough for our whole party... More

A colleague and I found this gem of a restaurant while working in Champaigne recently. We started with $3.00 Margherita's that were delicious and not watered down as some can be when on special. I ordered the fish tacos (2 with crab and 1 with tilapia). They came with beans and rice. The tacos were excellent - just the right... More

The ironclad rule of BBQ and Mexican joints is, the worse the place looks on the outside, the better the food is on the inside. Dos Reales looks like a dump. The food is outstanding. First off, you'll notice the menu is enormous. It takes some time to sift through all the options. On a friend's recommendation, I got the... More
