The Mexican food itself would be acceptable had it been priced reasonably. Not that it's good Mexican food, it's not- but for Mexi-Maine it was fine. Our issue was the cost of the food- our family of 4 paid $90 for nothing special food-wise and NO alcohol- all we ordered were 4 basic dinners and one appetizer. Absolutely crazy- we won't be returning next summer.

When we first saw the menu we were shocked. Everything on the menu was quite expensive for what it is (the dishes with lobster & crab are understable, everything else is not). We ordered the nacho appetizer which was not very good and definitely not worth the $13. Our bill for the nachos and 4 sodas was almost $30 which is completely insane! If we would have stayed for dinner, the bill would have been close to $100 for mediocre food. Will never go again, way too expensive!

My wife and I try Dos Amigos early each tourist season (they close for the winter), in the hope that it has improved. Unfortunately, it hasn't.

The food is just OK, standard type Mexican food. Nothing particularly very good, nor particularly very bad, nor innovative in the least. Oversized Margaritas seem to one of the major attractions at this funky, quirky restaurant.

The food certainly is very much overpriced for standard, run of the mill enchilads, tacos, etc. I had the "Mariachi" combo, with a cheese stuffed chile relleno, a chicken enchilada, a pulled pork taco, and Spanish rice for a price of $18.95. As stated before, it was OK, but nothing special, and not worth 100% more than I've paid for the same type of combo plate at other Mexican restaurants.

Even with just OK, somewhat overpriced food, if it weren't for the service, we would probably come back more than once a year. It took over 45 minutes for the combo plate that I just described to come out of the kitchen! This was after our order was finally taken by the waiter. We attempted to order dessert, but were told that 4 out of the 6 desserts listed were not available. It's a good thing the restaurant was not busy or we would have had an even longer wait, and no desserts available at all

We are very spoiled. We live in San Diego among the best Mexican restuarants in the country, so it's difficult to find good Mexican food on the northern border. Dos Amigos just doesn't do it for us snobby San Diego Mexican food lovers. Plus the paint job there would likely turn away most potential customers.
