Nice Location, Good Food

3 Amigos has an extensive menu, with all of the standard Mexican fare plus a few specialty items. Our dinners arrived piping hot and were delicious. The wait staff is efficient and friendly.

This had been a favorite restaurant of my boyfriend for over a decade. I have had very enjoyable food and service there as well. However, we will be taking a LONG hiatus from dining at this establishment. During our recent visit, the service was horrible! We had ordered cheese dip for an appetizer as we didn't even get chips and... More

We met a couple here for a late lunch and drinks. The food was great and the drinks were strong. Our waiter had a little trouble with English, but thats OK with me when the food is really good..

True Mexican Restaurant. Wait staff, cooks, etc. are all of Mexican decent. The restaurant is decorated in proper Mexican attire. The food is excellent. Serve is great. Mixed drinks are to die for. Great place to eat for all ages.

We have traveled through out the United states and this is the best and most original Mexican food you will find. Service is fast and accurate and will give excellent menu recommendations.
