“Comida Muy Buena”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

Consistently good Mexican food in a restaurant with great ambiance. If you're really, really, REALLY hungry, stop in on Sunday for their brunch. To die for! The top shelf margarita ain't too shabby, either. Owners, servers and staff are warm and welcoming and you'll feel like an amigo yourself by the time you're done.

“Generic mexican food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Leaves you satisfied, but not impressed. Service can be hit or miss, and food is mediocre. Have had several experiences that were OK, but none that were exceptional.

“Awesome Food and Even Better Live Music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

This is a real gem in Elko. We were invited here by a friend and we are very satisfied. The food tastes great and the presentation is beautiful. Try the arroz con pollo (sp?). Amazing!!

There is live music and it is GREAT. The singer/guitarist does beautiful background music. You can enjoy the atmosphere and carry on conversation.

These people have "it" figured out.

“How do they stay in Business”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

9 of us were traveling through Elko. We stopped at Dos Amigos, looked nice, smelled OK. We ordered several different things from encheladas to soup and kids meals. The chicken in the burretos was so old and so hard none of us could eat it. I couldn'believe they would serve something that bad. The beef tasted like it was from a can and the taco soup tasted like cambells vegetable soup with some of thier "old" chicken added. The chips at the table were rancid. Over all it was a bad $100 experience.
