“Enjoyable meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

My BIL raved about the crab enchiladas so we all went out for dinner and three of the four of us ordered those. Awesome. Absolutely delicious. Lumps of crab meat swimming in a cheesy sauce with some corn tortillas in it all somewhere-- what's not to like? It was so rich, and I really should have taken half home, but once I started I couldn't stop. Yum!

DH ordered the chicken mole and we were both disappointed in that choice. The chicken was tender, but the mole sauce tasted like a dessert. WAY too much chocolate. A mole should have a primary taste of chili pepper, with an aftertaste of smooth chocolate. Agave, in Lewes, has a very good mole-- much better than Dos Locos.

The margaritas, with which we washed down our meals, were also quite good.

The service was quick and attentive, and all things taken into account we will return (but not order the mole!).

“Surprised”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

The complimentary salsa & chips tasted lt came from a can. The made to order food was surprisingly good. The appearance of the restaurant could use a face lift but the food was good.

“Taste of Mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

We almost always enjoy eating here. The fajitas are excellent and I am partial to the Gina Fitz, a small portion of steak with vegetables. I have also thoroughly enjoyed the lobster salad, that's salad with unadulterated lobster on it, without a mayo pit. Chips and salsa are complementary and very tasty, though sometimes spicy. We have also enjoyed happy hour fare, though the nachos were disappointing. Nachos are a frequent order at different restaurants for us; these were pretty bland - slightly dressed up nacho chips with skimpy toppings and little to brag about. Overall, the food is great and the unfortunate part is that many times there is a wait. Bring a book...

“Crab Enchiladas...yes please!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Another restaurant that offered a gluten-free menu that I just had to try! So glad we did! I ordered a combo with 3 enchiladas, Lobster, Crab and Shrimp! OMG I have never seen such fat enchiladas! The crab enchilada had to have 10 crabs worth of meat in it! This plate could easily be shared! Very friendly staff and a fabulous location on the main strip in Rehoboth.

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

From the minute we walked in, Wayne greeted us warmly and made sure we knew our wait staff's name before leaving us. We had the Alaskan King Crab legs and thoroughly enjoyed them. One of our members had the Stone Grill and was carefully taught how to use it with a mind toward degree of cooking as well as safety. Our wait staff were warm and attentive and efficient. The Margaritas were delicious. Loved the warm chips and salsa before the meal. They were able to accommodate young children on the menu and the wait staff seemed very adept at dealing with squirmy little ones. Spotted several gay couples as well as families dining and everyone seemed relaxed and happy. Loved the Tex-Mex atmosphere.

GREAT place.
