I love this place. They serve lunch specials till 3 pm. I have no idea how they get the food to the table so quick but usually within 3 - 4 minutes the food is to you. Very reasonable prices for good size portions. They will customize any item or come up with a different dish for certain dietary needs... More

Good food, very good service, reasonable prices. I like the lunch Numero Quatro with grilled chicken (burrito, taco, beans or rice). Hard to beat for $5.25. Chips and salsa are crisp and fresh. Say ole'.

The place is not posh or even trendy, they just have darn good food. They are very accommodating and will make any little changes you want. For example, if you want a flauta with steak, they will do it! Their margaritas are terrific and very reasonably priced. Good service. Clean. Handicap accessible, but be careful on the little ramp up... More

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
