Ever since I moved from Kansas City I have found it hard to find a good Mexican place. This place was so delicious I absolutely loved it.

Dos was, at one time, superlative. It is not as good recently. Service can be a problem if the restaurant is busy. The food is still very good and the margaritas are potent. During the school year Dos is filled with UI students because meals are comparatively a bargain.

I have liked everything I have gotten here. The queso dip is excellent. Not real big so sometimes it's hard to get in.

The food was good. It's not as good as some of the mexican restaurants in the Chicago. I would recommend it if your in the Champagne-Urbana area if you have a taste for Mexican.

It's Mexican, so it's basically cheap eats. Although we no longer live in Champaign, we always stop here for lunch or dinner when we go through town. The food is always tasty, served quickly, the beer is inexpensive, and the compementary chips made in-house always come out nice and warm, with two different salsas. Portions are huge, but nobody looks... More

I have to be honest, I prefer very authentic Mexican food like I could eat while living in Texas. Have lived in the Midwest for 9 years and this is about as good as it gets. They offer a wide variety of Mexican dishes. The servings are very large. Prices are very reasonable. They have specials lunch menu and it... More

The food here is inexpensive. The Saturday lunch prices give you almost full-sized dinner entrees at lunch prices until 3:00 pm. But no matter what the price, I love the food here. The staff, many of them have been working here for years, are extremely courteous and nice. The chips aren't greasy. The mild and medium salsa are both good... More

We were in town visiting family and went to lunch with my sister, brother in law and niece. I am on a specific diet so I ordered chicken enchiladas without the tortilla and they accommodated my request. The chicken and green sauce were very good. My niece even commented how good it looked and I couldn't finish it so she... More
