“Don't waste your money, besides you're not welcomed here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2011

Im boycotting Amigos. I have been a long time customer there and I must say they really have gone down hill ...badly. they water down the cheese dip now to where it actually is water. The portions keep getting smaller and smaller. The drink are weak and when you order a pitcher of margarita they cram it full of ice so they don't have to give you much,comes with glasses that are also over filled with ice cubes. You can only get three out of the whole pitcher. Any little dirty trick Eric and staff can think of to cut corners and cheat people they jump right on it. And to top it all off they jacked their prices up. And the Amigos on west market is the same way now .... so they have lost my business. Im going to Vega's

“If cheap-and-filling is what you want...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2010

In the past couple of decades, cheap, simple Mexican restaurants seem to have appeared in even the smallest towns in the country's south and mid-section (cause or effect of the national obesity epidemic?) and it's hard for those of us who love real Mexican food to pass them by, although disappointment is pretty well guaranteed. Even where there are Mexicans (or Mex-Americans), you don't see them in these places, which is instructive. So Jonesborough has Amigo's: cheap and filling, for sure, with friendly service and a liquor license - but be prepared for such novelties as a "chile relleno" filled (sort of) with refried beans and covered with cheese sauce, a "bean-cheese dip" that's refried beans covered with cheese sauce, and "guacamole" that's been pureed to the consistency of mayonnaise.
