“Authentic and creative, and Veg friendly!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

I've been eating here for years and bringing friends who have become converts. I love the guacamole, it's beautifully presented. I also like the seitan fajitas. This place is great for veg/vegan eaters. And they know how to make a real top shelf margarita. Make mine with Azul tequilla.

“Best Chilequiles in Philly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Dos Segundos is my favorite bar in Philadelphia! The Margaritas are perfection, and the Chilequiles are savory and bountiful. The nachos are outstanding and i highly recommend the Tinga Poblana De Cerdo. The bar has a great laid back vibe and prime outdoor seating on sunny days where i like to sit and eat sunday brunch with my husband and dog.

“average Mexican food with good margaritas”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

The food served at this restaurant is more Tex-Mex than authentic Mexican cuisine. We went for an early dinner a few weeks ago. There is outdoor and indoor seating. The interior is decorated in cheerful colours and the music is blarring.

They start you off with nachos served with red and green salsa. We ordered the fried plantain and calamari for starters. We had burrito and fajita plates for our mains. They have a good selection of sides: guacamole, refried beans, etc. The portions were huge and we had enough to take home.

The margaritas are quite good.

The bill for 3 people came to about $110 with drinks, tax and tip.

Service was pretty good until we got our bill. We paid in cash and our waitress short changed us by $10.56. She apologised when we informed her but, strangely, she short changed us again by rounding up and just giving us $10 but no coins(?!). We left a 20% tip anyway because the service overall was good and she did (kind of) resolve the problem but you should really check your change if you pay by cash.

“Delicious food, great prices and a great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

Cantina dos Segundos was a great find on a recent trip to Philadelphia. The food was delicious. I had the Cabrito, which was really tasty. The waiter was very friendly and their frozen margarita is certainly to be recommended.
