“Quick & Tasty Mexican Fix”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

Having finished a visit to Sequoia, we were heading toward Hwy 99 when we decided to grab a late lunch before continuing on our drive to Las Vegas. We were in the mood for Mexican, but didn't want a "sit down & order" type place. Based on the 2 posted reviews, we thought Amigos might fit the bill, and it wasn't too far off Hwy 198. Turned out to be a good choice. The group decided on the Mexican Bowls (choice of meat plus rice, beans, cabbage & onions) and a beef chimichanga - both were yummy. About $8 a person. Only negative was the single bathroom, which wasn't clean, but I guess no one had checked on it since the lunch crowd came through. It's in a shopping strip a couple of blocks south of 198 at the southeast corner of Akers and Walnut.

“Very Popular Local Mexican Restaurant & Sports Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Very popular local mexican restaurant with sports bar on one side. Stand in line to watch food prepared before your eyes. Pay and carry to your table with no waiting for waitressses or added tipping cost. Large selection of meat choices, carne asada tostada compuesta and Richard's burritto with chile verde are both excellent. Quiet on one side and fun noisy sports bar on other side.

“Not fast food, but great fast mexican food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

The food is all ready to put together in front of you as you order, so its fast and fresh. Only wait would be if there is a line, which can happen, but usually not for long. Food is great! Everytime.

“Fun Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2011

This is a cafeteria style place. You decide what you want on you order. The servers are friendly and eager to help you. The food was good, nothing spetacular but really good. I like the way I could order a taco salad and tell them what meat I wanted and if I wanted rice, beans, salsa, or whatever. It is a sports bar on one side and a large area on the other. plus they have a very large meeting room. There were 7 of us and our bill was 65.00 and it inclueded 3 beers.
