A word from Amigos
Amigos is exactly what you would want it to be: bright, bold, eclectic and fun! Antique mirrors, vintage license plates, old guitars and hubcaps hang from the vibrant green and ocean blue walls, while Day of the Dead artwork adorns the windows in the main dining room. Rust-colored roosters and white tin sheep make their way through the multi-colored Christmas lights dangling from the ceiling, while plastic dolphins and sharks swim in buckets on the bar, waiting to take a dive into a cocktail. Diners can take a seat on the red banquettes lining the bar, pull up a chair at one of the high-top tables, or gather around one of the large communal tables in the main dining area. A 36-seat outdoor terrace will open in the Spring, the perfect spot to enjoy some ultimate nachos with all the fixin’s in the sun.

    I lived in Mexico for years and I know from Mexican food, and the cook at Amigos has it going on - the food here is DELICIOUS, with flavors that ring true to Mexican 'sazon' with a little groovy twist. The service, however, is a disaster - why bring four out of five drinks? what happened to our dessert order? Those and other questions about the marx-brothers-like service may remain forever unanswered. The waiters are unfailingly nice, but just as unfailingly incompetent, although of course the problem may line somewhere else along the line, so not sure if I want to shoot the messenger. This place has been a gem in a relative food desert, so I want to see it survive, but that will mean improving the service.

    The food was very good but the service on the other hand sucked. Waiting for just a waiter to greet you took forever. The worse part in any dining experience is when you have to hunt down your waiter to pay the bill.

    So disappointing! Yes, I understand it was Cinco de Mayo, and yes, I expected service to run a little slower than usual. But I’ve been to PLENTY of restaurants on Cinco de Mayo and never have I experienced the incompetence and idiocy that befell me the other night. After having to request chips and salsa for the table (standard issue at every other Mexican restaurant I've been to), after having to place our order AGAIN 30 minutes after the first time we placed it because our ticket got lost, after waiting 50 minutes for terrible, overly tart, bitter margaritas, after waiting 1 hour and 10 minutes for food that was the WRONG order, and after NEVER receiving our guacamole appetizer, my friends and I left, never to return.

    The overall experience was great, since we were not in a rush. Our waiter was no where to be found for the majority of the meal, but the food was great. Good music, lively ambience. Recommended for groups in no rush to leave.

    Fish Tacos are really good. The Red Sangria is amazing and the All-day Happy Hour is a bonus. Love that I can just walk. Weekday deals are so worth it All you can eat Taco and Sangria night for $20 is a bargain.

    The noise was unusually loud. The waiter had an attitude when I joked about being asked for ID, and continued to make snarky remarks, which he apparently thought were funny. Food was good, though.

  • The margarita came in a tall

    The margarita came in a tall glass & tasted like flavored water. A shorter one provided as replacement was little better. Generic food and servers are pleasant, but not attentive.

    I wish the food had been more flavorful because the staff and energy were amazing. But as Mexican goes it could be better for the price point.
