“Great Value Happy Hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Tres Amigos has a great happy hour and the price is always right. 3:00pm to 7:00pm, House Margaritas are such a low price and it's also 1/2 of appetizers. Beef or Chicken Nachos are a excellent selection. Try the shrimp nachos. They are my favorite. The sports bar area is always entertaining and never a loud crowd. If you are looking for great Mexican food and Margaritas for a great value, then this is it!

“Dine with the raccoons”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

This quaint Mexican spot has pictures windows with a pretty view of a woodsy area. If you are there at the right time, raccoons can be spotted spying on the guests. The kids love to eat here. Normal Mexican fare is offered but actually quite good. Great margaritas if you are a fan.

“Great Margaritas in Westlake - fresh Mexican Food Specials”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

We have loved Tres Amigos for years. Our favorite location is definitely the Westlake location on 360. They often have specialty margaritas. We tend to have margaritas, share some queso with beef and then share the special between two of us. There is plenty of food with that combo. The staff is very helpful when you mention special diets, etc. The margaritas can be a bit strong - stick with 1 large or they'll roll you out of there! We often order food from here for lunch. They pack everything well - no soggy tacos!

“Elegant fare in Comfortable Setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2012

Tres Amigos has been around awhile. It feels like visiting a Mexican hacienda. A small bar at the entrance provides a waiting area or a destination. The food is surprisingly delicious and attractively served. Even traditional dishes are given a special treatment with both service and presentation. Locals eat here and a birthday or graduation party is not unusual in the private section in the back. A glass lined wall in the main dining area looks out on a garden area with a fountain. A short distance out of town it is a relaxing respite with plenty of parking. Good food!
