“Don't waste your time.”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Three generations gathered for a birthday surprise. It was a surprise - for sure. I will say the chips and their "dips" were good and a bit different. However, service was slow and not efficient. Food delivery took forever and wrong food came to our table -plus several other tables, also. Not one of us thought our food was tasty. The birthday cake was not a treat! Dos Rios was very noisy and the changing lighting was very, very disturbing. Total agreement from all of us - we'd never return. The outdoor seating looked very inviting. Maybe we should have come a cooler night and enjoyed drinks outside.

“Overpriced and loud”
Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

Not worth a visit. Many better restaurants in Des Moines. Food was overpriced and just didn't taste good.

“Great for Foodies, not Tex-Mex”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

I went here with people who were expecting Tex-Mex so i believe they were disappointed. Service was slow. The selections are good and the tacos I had were excellent although the portions seemed small for the price.

“Worth a try”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Not your average Mexican restaurant, more creative, very large tequila selection. Their outdoor seating in the downtown (Court Avenue) is better then most as well.
