We ordered an assortment of foods, mostly fajitas, and everything tasted great. We also ordered a side a guacamole and chips before our meal and that was very tasty as well. Portions were ample and we had great service.

Fantastic selection of margaritas. Ordered the Carne Asada and the folks here at CDS could not have cooked it any better. Cooked exactly as ordered (medium rare) with a fantastic blend of cilantro and garlic seasoning and charred to perfection. Guacamole was a little bland but everything else was fantastic!

We happened upon this place when hungry - not knowing what we were looking for. What a find! Our Fried plantain appetizer was outstanding! Golden on the outside with sweet silky goodness on the inside top with scallions, creama (mexican cream like creme fresh) and mexican cheese. the frozen margarita was generous and well priced. Next came the most beautiful... More

This is a place to enjoy an icy margarita with friends. The food is authentic. Menu has a variety of unusual choices as well as the typical cuisine. We had a ball there. The restaurant is casual and funky. A great Philly choice.

Went for dinner on a recommendation and we weren't disappointed. Yes, the place is loud, but luckily our seats were by the back patio and it wasn't crowded so we were able to have a conversation without yelling. Quite a few specials on the board. I had the shrimp tacos off the menu, very good. My husband had the Cabrito... More

Good authentic Mexican food. We went for brunch and tried a variety of items. Sampled all flavor of wings and wasn't that impressed but everything else was great. The shrimp omelette was incredible as well as the salsa verde. Hubby really loved the French toast. But the drink called Dorado with fresh fruit and grand marnier was the highlight. Would... More

Night out with friends and we wanted a different locale with good food. Friday night is very busy. Parking is ridiculous. The place is packed. The margarita machine broke and that did me in. Get the blood orange one. Our server gave us a round on the house to make up for it. The guacamole is delicious. Pay extra for... More

I've been here a few different times for brunch, lunch, and dinner, on both weeknights and weekends and the food is always delicious and the service is terrific. This is a great spot for friends or a date.

I love this restaurant so much that I've gone for happy hour, dinner, lunch, and just to snack (i.e. use as an excuse to enjoy one of their margaritas)!

Huitalcoche is one of my favorite, authentic Mexican foods and it is very hard to find it. Dos Segundos offers a vegetarian quesadilla filled with veggies and the gooey, black fungus that grows on the ears of corn in Mexico. It's quite scrumptious and comes with a generous portion of guacamole too. It's all I order when I'm here along... More
