Good dinner

The restaurant is inside a hotel, so it was a bit odd when we parked (trying to decide if we were at the right place). We waited a couple of minutes for someone to greet us when we stood at the entrance, but our chips/salsa and then drink order came very quickly. Our food order arrived very... read more

We stopped for lunch on a Saturday. Only one other table/booth was occupied but the person seating us said typically they are very busy. Chips & salsa arrived as we were seated; after quite a long wait our waiter arrived to take our drink order. By that time we were ready to order food. Still quite a long wait and... More

Before writing my review, I read a few others. My experience was a good one. The staff was working hard to keep the place clean- even though it is outdated. The flavor is different from Qdoba and other chains of the same fare. The menu had a wide selection. I personally didn't care for the rice as it appeared to... More

Chips & salsa were there in a flash. Steak fajita was large and delicious, and had generous toppings. Service was quick and friendly. This place will be a new road trip tradition.

Located in a hotel, this was a pleasant surprise. The food was very good, better than most Mexican restaurants I've eaten at. Reasonable prices. The only negative is the decor and atmosphere are lacking. This restaurant occupies what used to be the banquet space of this hotel. Could be one of the better dining options in this market that doesn't... More

When I asked our hotel clerk what was the best restaurant in town, he said, without doubt, that it was El Dos, which is locally owned and operated. We had the special, which was four enchiladas for $8. Beer was $3.50 and they had a nice selection of ice-cold bottles. Being from New Mexico, this chile was definitely different than... More

Best Mexican food in Colby Kansas, hands down. As someone who grew up in Colby area, but then has lived in Texas the past 20+ years, I was amazed at how good this food was! Great service, unassuming surroundings, and the food menu was fantastic and everything we had was superb. Modest prices, this is highly recommended for lunch or... More

This pace is our favorite place to go to! The food is good, hot and searched fast! The staff doesn't speak the best English but they are supper friendly and treat people well! The polo bandito is our favorite! Don't forget a margarita!

We normally refrain from eating at a restaurant located within a motel as we have had several unfriendly experiences. After reading several reviews, we decided to give El Dos De Oros a try and were glad we did. Good friendly service and very tasty green chili. We would eat here again should our travel bring us back to Colby.

There was an odor of sour meat cooking throughout the restaurant. Hard to find, since it is in a secondary Quality Inn.
