Hands down, the best mexican food in the city. Food is a little pricey, but well worth it. Get the guacamole appetizer, they come to your table and make it to taste right there ...

Always Reliable 3/14/2012

I wouldn't say Dos Caminos is the best Mexican restaurant in the city, but it is always reliable and definitely one of the better spots in this neighborhood. The tacos are great and the guac dip is great as well. The margaritas are delicious and the ambiance is nice -- especially in the summer when you can sit outside. more

Please Please Please: DO NOT GO THERE 11/1/2010

I went to Dos Caminos just once, with my boyfriend, and I swear they're not gonna see either of us again. Overpriced food and bad service that completely defeats the purpose of going out for Mexican food.\r \r We were seated in the dining room in the basement. Kind of pleasant atmosphere. Then the waiter came even before we looked at the menu and asked us if we wanted guacamole with our chips, making us think it was complimentary... instead, it was $14 a cup!! After that, he gave us some kind and disinterested advice about the most expensive items on the menu... I ordered a lobster ceviche (specifying WITHOUT cheese) and after a wait the brought it with cheese! Then they say they remade it (it came back after 2 mins so.. ehm...) and the taste was nothing special and the portion was nothing more than a small appetizer.\r \r After 40 mins, the waiter finally came for dessert. We orderede the fruit fondue and... the chocolate was COLD!! Does it even make sense for a foundue??!! Obviously, the bill arrived very late too, way after we finished that sort of fake fondue. Guess the bill?? $110!!! For sangria (good but small), guacamole, two small plates and a shared dessert!!\r \r If people keep going there, they'll keep thinking they're good. Don't even make the attempt, don't waste your money.\r \r Instead, right in front of it, there's an AWESOME Japanese BBQ restaurant (Gyu-Kaku) that mon-thu after 9:30 has a special deal with 50% on selected food and drinks and it's really worthy your time and your money! more

Please don't waste your money! 2/17/2010

This is probably the worst Mexican I have ever had. The chips were greasy and stale, the guacamole was bland, the fish tacos were fishy, the meat in the steak tacos was fatty and bland, and the margaritas were terrible. My husband made a request to add a chile relleno to his order which was flat out denied. (We went on a snowy Tuesday night, so not crowded and even offered to pay extra.) Please do not waste your time or money on this place!!! Pros: not sure Cons: food more

Great drinks, grumpy bartendar! 11/17/2009

My girls and I go here almost once a week to catch up and have a few drinks. Every time we have great service and food but this past week we ran into Ms. Grumpy on the bottom floor bar. She did poor a nice drink but her attitude was not welcoming, almost as she hated life itself. Anyways I will return because we make it a weekly thing but I hope we see the big muscular guy again..... ;) Pros: margs!!!! Cons: ms. grumpy pooring drinks more

RUDE and STUPID!!!!!!!!! 8/26/2009

I was meeting 3 people on a Tuesday nite early and wanted a table outside. The hostess asked if I was having drinks and apps. I said yes. She told me you can't sit outside unless you are ordering entres. I said OK. I'll order entres. She wouldnt let me sit until all had arrived. Finally seated, we ordered 3 margaritas and a glass of wine and an order of guac. Two more friends wanted to join. The mgr would not let us put two table together, citing ""rules"". So we were seated at 2 tables corner to corner. We decided to leave as it was uncomfortable to converse. Mgr was so RUDE and STUPID. He kept coming by and saing ""when are you leaving?"" You said you were leaving. He then brought the check even though we didn't finish our food or drinks. The bill was $130! What a RIP OFF. $25 per margarita? $30 for guac? $130 for RUDE AND STUPID??? NEVER AGAIN! THE WORST! Pros: outdoor seating Cons: too many RULES to enjoy it! more

DO NOT GO HERE. 6/29/2009

I went here with a group of friends and i couldn't wait to get out of here. The entire staff seems to have a stick up their a** and was just SO rude, condescending and almost disturbed that *gasp* we'd want to spend money here. If you go here, don't expect any sort of good service--we waited 30 minutes for our damn waitress to show up. Not only that but the host was such a prick...took all self-restraint to not want to inflict harm. I hate this overpriced crappy place and hope that nobody i care about ever goes here. Pros: nothing. Cons: everything. more

Excellent Food 5/27/2009

Hands down, the best mexican food in the city. Food is a little pricey, but well worth it. Get the guacamole appetizer, they come to your table and make it to taste right there in front of you. Food and dessert was excellent. Place gets pretty packed, so the service can get a little slow considering how many people they have to serve, but its not too bad. Pros: Amazing food Cons: Service is a little slow more

Great margs, great staff, great times 12/29/2008

I love Mexican food and I consider myself an expert margarita consumer. Dos Caminos never disappoints with their margs and the service is crisp and good looking. The Mexican Chopped Salad is a great and yummy choice for those who want most of their calorie consumption to be in their beverages. That being said, I was basically making out with the tacos my boyfriend got; they were all so good. Pros: Margaritas, cute staff and managers Cons: Sometimes the upstairs bar is too busy more

Average 8/12/2008

Average food, high prices, mediocre service. If you are looking for a scene, I suppose it fits the bill--but for good food, Mama Mexico is just around the corner. more

Disappointing Food and Service 4/22/2008

If not for a client that works nearby who suggested this Dos Caminos location, I would never visit this restaurant.\r \r The reservation made was not honored. The hostess, who promised an outside table over the phone, explained that it is not possible to actually reserve an outdoor table when we arrived.\r \r The waiter took over fifteen minutes to come to our table. While we were waiting, two rounds were served to the table next to us, designed for six, that ballooned to ten people, with half the table sitting in our laps. Creating a zero score for atmosphere in the downstairs dungeon dining room.\r \r When we ordered, the waiter corrected my client, ?it is not cheese dip, but queso?? Then we were served black bean dip. Not to mention a frozen fruity margarita (it was red) as apposed to a normal margarita on the rocks.\r \r My client ordered the skirt steak and then was served the ribeye. I had enchiladas that were overcooked, providing a hard chicken inside yet soggy on the outside, as the sauce must have been applied fifteen minutes earlier.\r \r Waiting for the bill was a marathon. Total dinner time was over two hours, which caused my client to miss his train and hurry to make the next one.\r \r The only redeeming point was that my client suggested it, so he couldn?t hold the embarrassing experience against me. If you want Mexican there are better choices in the area. Pros: Margarita Cons: Service, Quality, Atmosphere more

2 visits, 2 Reviews. 11/16/2007

The first time i went to Dos Camions, I had the regular steak and my boyfriend had the skirt steak. I love steak and the regular steak is not even something to talk about but the skirt steak was the best I ever had, the juice exploded in your mouth when you took a bite. The gucamole was great also and so was the service. I went back last week, the skirt steak lacked flavor and the waiter did not even ask us how would we like our gucamole, not sure if it made a difference that we sat outside the second time. The ambiance downstairs is really nice and romantic if you get a booth. I would go back a 3rd time and which way it goes.. Pros: not sure Cons: not sure more

Expensive and SALTY! 10/17/2007

The food is okay, but it is quite expensive and very very SALTY - your rings won't fit the next day. The guacamole is great of course, but other things, like the ceviche (a bit soggy), the steak fajitas (also soggy) were a bit disappointing. The service was excellent though. One member of my party was extra demanding and the waiter (wish I remembered his name!) was patient and attentive to her various demands. The space is also beautiful in a grand sort of way - i.e. - not intimate. More of a place to go with a bunch of people rather than a date. There's also sidewalk seating if you like a little exhaust with your margaritas. Pros: Fun atmosphere Cons: Food a bit overpriced more

Good guac, terrible service 10/5/2007

Probably wasn't a good idea to try this place out for Sunday brunch in the first place, but also one of the emptiest places we could find for immediate seating of 12 hungry people. The guacamole was good--but also very pricey. Being a large party, the staff automatically upgraded us from the $12 regular bowls to the double bowls--at DOUBLE the price--without making us aware. Imagine our surprise when we got the bill and it showed $72 for guacamole!\r \r Not only did our meals take 50 minutes to arrive, they still managed to forget one, which took an additional 10 minutes. As for drinks, our waitress tried to pass off green tea for mint, and never brought out that additional coffee despite our reminding her twice. Forgivable if the restaurant was actually busy. \r \r Unless you're prepared to spend 2.5 hours on brunch, I wouldn't recommend coming here. Pros: Guacamole, ambience Cons: Terrible service outweighs the pros more
