A really good experience

We were visiting the area from out of state. We arrived for an early dinner. We were served promptly and had great service. Our food arrived quickly and was exactly what we expected. A really good experience. Thank you!

After looking for a Mexican restaurant we decided on Dos Reales. The food and menu is like most small town Mexican restaurants. I ordered shrimp tacos and the rest of my group ordered burritos and chimichangas. Food was good and would return.

We had come here two or 3 years ago, and I remember it being decent. This visit it was very disappointing. Very noisy, food was bland, and Margarita was a sugar remix with little to no alcohol.

when they first opened, they were very good, then when things got more expensive, rather than raising their prices, the put in more beans and less meat.. now we don't go there anymore since quality is down

This is a popular Mexican restaurant and has been for decades. The food is predictably good and the prices are low. It is often crowded, and there are no reservations that I know of, but tables seem to open quickly. Everyone in my family, that includes my daughter, husband and children, seems to have one or two item that they... More

A very casual, festive atmosphere that helps set the Mexican scene awaits you when you enter the restaurant--a converted former fast food establishment. There are booths and tables, as well as an outdoor area (weather permitting). Servers come almost immediately with chips and salsa, and soon after, someone comes to take your drink order.
