“This restaurant does it right!”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

After moving from Texas where tamales and chimichangas are on every street corner, my whole family was worried that Mexican food would never be the same. Boy, were we wrong. Amigos Cantina can compare with any Mexican restaurant we've ever eaten in. I've also made several business trips to Southern California and the same holds true. We've been there three times now and consistency is everywhere, from the margaritas, to the main dishes, to the desserts. Their spicier red sauce is to die for and if you can save room for desert you will not be disappointed. We found the service very warm and friendly, and we could tell that everyone in the restaurant (and it was very very busy) was enjoying themselves. The atmosphere is relaxed. It's a down to earth, great discovery if you discover this little gem.

“You must try the shrimp enchiladas!”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

What a great find in these parts. Friendly service, nice outdoor seating in warm weather...but the shrimp enchiladas are the best we've ever had, and we've tried them in the southwest, down south and elsewhere.

“Sorry, not that good.”
Reviewed September 28, 2011

We live locally and receive coupons in the mail for this restaurant. Our first clue that the food may not be what we expected was there were no Mexicans in the place...the restaurant is very small and crowded with tables, and very noisy. The waitress was trying her best to serve 6 of us, but our meals were brought out wrong. Things were exchanged and traded around, and one of our party just accepted what he was given. The refried beans were dry, the tacos were mediocre and there were no condiments given, nor any Chu-la-la or other sauce on the table. The guacamole was good, anyway. We won't go there again.

“Finally good Mexican food”
Reviewed September 18, 2011

I had the tamales with red sauce and they were delicious. I had a bite of the shrimp enchilada and they had large perfectly cooked shrimp inside and it was a great combination of crispy and creamy. You could tell the food was made fresh there . loved it and look forward to going back.

“Always a consistent satisfying meal”
Reviewed July 16, 2011

My family has eaten at Amigos Cantina well over a dozen times in the past four years . The food is quality, the atmosphere very welcoming. I know of dozens of people in my community who dine there as well and love it. When I read a disparaging review, such as the one that appears on this page, I am very sorry that that person walked out of the restaurant with issues. I have witnessed the owner accommodate people at every turn and the staff at the restaurant totally tuned into the customers. One only needs to visit Amigos Cantina's Facebook page to see what many others have said about this fine restaurant.
