Had a great lunch served on the patio as we had our dog with us. There were plenty of choices to pick from but be aware tamales are served by themselves unless you order an extra side. Staff was very friendly and kept an eye...on us and our needs. Reasonably priced and lots of choices. Plenty of parking and not far off I-75.More

Service here continues to be awful. Not sure if it is due to being understaffed or if the staff here just dislike their job or life in general. Food is good, but I always feel like I am an inconvenience to the staff at this...restaurant. You should never make your customers feel this way. I regret giving them multiple chances to prove me wrong !!! So many other choices for good food that also include good service. Kinda sad!🥲More

As locals, we love the bar at this place. The bartenders are all so friendly, remember our order, and quickly bring drinks, chips, and salsa. The homemade tortillas are a great attraction as is the lime marinated chicken that comes in any chicken dish. Margaritas...are great, served with a smile. Will continue to return again and again.More

Excellent service and they were very short staffed. We just relaxed, enjoyed our margaritas and chilled. Well worth the wait! Good was beyond excellent and we loved every bite!

Absolutely outrageous behavior from a woman named Carla. She claimed to be the manager. I went to the front desk to inquire about how long of a wait and I was rudely interrupted by her and told to wait in line. At no time was...I rude, I politely ask how long. I went to go get a drink at the bar to wait for a table and Carla came up to me yet again to harass me. I literally had to tell her to get away for me. I have no idea why this woman picked me out of so many people to be a target but she did and now everyone is going to know about it. Take a look at the rest of the reviews I’ve given, I give great reviews. This lady was absolutely out of line. Needless to say we left.More

Justin D was an excellent server. The tableside guacamole was average. My wife and I ordered fajitas, and they were flavorless. The fajitas were also full of onions and light on the protein.

Food quality is poor, they leave out items that come with the order (sides, chips, queso), and they make blatant errors on dishes from what is ordered (include ingredients that are requested to be excluded and miss add on item requests). This was not just...on one order. It is EVERY time. And the carryout food quality is lacking in a major way. We keep waiting a month in between carryout orders hoping that it will improve. It simply does not. When you call them to explain, they act as if they don’t care. They don’t do ANYTHING to help remedy the situation. Ever. NOTHING. We continue to try because we always have a pleasant food experience when choosing to dine in their restaurant, but no more. We will have to go elsewhere for our Mexican food from now on. Too many times it has fallen short….and that’s a shame.More

My favorite restaurant was Don Pablos and I was so upset when they closed. I live in St Petersburg and heard that this restaurant was almost identical. To my surprise it was!! And it was even better! The food was so fresh and the service...was great! My family in Orlando in now driving down just to go there this week. I wish I would have knew about this place sooner. I have a hard time finding good Mexican being from Texas. The only place I enjoyed was Miguel's in Tampa but will probably never go there again because this is my new go to!More

Service was great, quick and pleasant. Food was really lousy however. We had a burrito, taco and fajitas. Salsa do start, very bland, as was everything else. Homemade tortillas sounded good but they were grease soaked. We finished maybe 1/3 of our food and left.

I've only been to Tres Amigos a few times, but every time I go I wonder why I don't come back more often. First thing is that everyone working there is pleasant and nice. That alone says a lot. We went to celebrate a friend's...birthday. They had Taco Salad and a Burrito Supreme. My wife had their chili relleno, and I had there carne asada along with there grilled corn. If you never had grilled corn (Elotes), this is the place to get it. It's wonderful, with just a bit of spicy heat to it, and topped with an aoili sauce. Yum! My carne asada was terrific - it was tender and cooked perfectly. I had the 8oz version, which was more than enough, along with rice and beans. The bill for the 4 of us was $73 before tip. We spent over two hours there and Beatiz, our server, was wonderfulMore
