From the outside you don't expect much from the location, you think it's kinda of a fly'by night business. Trust me, it's a good stop and easy for interstate traffic and probably the best Mexican Food in town. Price is about what you would expect for a sit down restaurant.

We go to El Dos at least once or twice a month, usually on Sunday after church. It's always been a great place to go, they seem to have more flavor in their food than the other Mexican places in town. I usually get the Pina-loca, pineapple goodness. If you like pineapple and chorizo, you'll like that. The service is... More

I have food allergies and they were able to accommodate me. The food was tasty and our server was delightful.

El Dos Del Oros is a treasure of a place. I can often not eat at Mexican resturants because of allerys to hot spicy ingredients and black pepper. It had become a problem finding food that was really good since our favorite resturant, the downtown top of the bank place closed last year, but thanks to reviews I found we... More

I don't know what to say, except I am shocked by so many good reviews. The service way average, at best. The food just wasn't good and the overall rating is just bad. Would not come back. Not hard to be average, but they even miss that mark.

We found this restaurant right off I-70. It was a nice alternative to fast food chain lunch stops. Our food was delivered within minutes of ordering. The food was good, though not great. The server was competent, though not especially friendly. The restaurant was clean, yet cluttered. The value was excellent.

We ate here at the suggestion of the hotel staff where we were staying in Hays. We stayed at the Best Western right next door. We had initially thought we would go across the highway to another restaurant and staff suggested El Dos De Oros. We are very glad we did. I had shrimp fajitas and Tom had tamales and... More

I don't think my tamales had any meat in then at all. I did not like the beans and my husband did not like the rice. His steak was unevenly cooked but flavorful

All I can say is yummy!!! I have ate at a lot of Mexican reatraunts and have experienced real authentic mexican and this is a really good place to eat. Service was fast, friendly, and reasonably priced. Will be going back most definitely when we are Hays. This coming from a person who does not like to eat out. Cooked... More
