If you are in Hualien, do yourself a favor and eat here. We sat outside twice and loved all the food we had. The staff was able to make the kids a cheese quesadilla although it's not on the menu.

I have lived in Asia for the last 5 years; during that time I have tried to find good Mexican restaurants without much success... until I visited Hualien. This was truly the most fantastic Mexican food experience I have had in Asia. The taste of the food was quite authentic, especially considering access to materials all the way out in Asian. Furthermore, the presentation of the food and restaurant environment was lovely. As other reviewers mentioned, the owner is very nice and friendly, and tries to ensure everyone has a good experience at his restaurant. I went here with some mainland Chinese who also loved the food - although Mexican food is not always enjoyed by mainland Chinese. We had the following food which we thoroughly enjoyed: Tacos, Quesadillas, Nachos, Taco Salad, and for dessert the Fried Ice Cream with Kahlua. A definite must visit if you are ready for some western food on your visit to Hualien.

Tastes like real Mexican. We have had some OK Mexican on the Island, but this is the first place that tastes authentic. Would definitely return when we are back in Hualien.

Taking a break from the local fare we decided to try our luck at Dos Tacos. We sat upstairs in the restaurant which lacked the atmosphere the downstairs has, but the burritos made up for that. I had a beef burrito and it was delicious. Definitely worth a visit if your in Hualien.

Though NatalieB0282's review rings true, the main courses were beautiful in presentation, and not at all disappointing.

The flavor and care put into assembling the dishes were redeeming elements in an otherwise nicely managed restaurant. Further, I assume, from experience living in the East, that it is no easy task assembling the caliber of quality Dos Tacos strives for in the backwaters of Taiwan.

That being said, the prices were approaching the farther edges of reasonable, and therefore, the condiments could have been a bit more generously supplied, being that they are not entirely handmade.

Ambience was intact; and, the friendliness of the staff was in no short supply. Well worth a try, if your in the mood for a rare and tasty Mexican spread in a town that is extremely sparse in good quality Western style food.
