Dos Caminos - Third Avenue
Surprising Find on 3rd Ave.My son and I were walking back to our hotel from Central Park and happened to walk past Dos Caminos and saw a busy patio at 5:00 pm...usually a good sign. I noted the name and location and made a reservation from the hotel. The food was fantastic, the guacamole was the best we have ever had the the desserts (usually not great at a Mexican restaurant) were unbelievable. Sitting on the patio on 50th St was a treat - lots to look at. The Sangria was also good.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways reliably goodFood and service are consistently good. great tequila selections, delicious classic mexican dishes with a twist6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDrinks ad lots of themGreat place to eat and choose from a large selection of margaritas,sangrias, cocktails n beer. My favorite is the skirt steak!Cooked perfectly!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGuacamole and Margaritashow can you go wrong? Delicious food, as always and we snagged a table outdoors.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticI had a wonderful dinner with friends thanks to our server Melissa, the food recommendations were on money and the margaritas were excellent. Everytime I think of Mexican food in NYC, I think of Dos Caminos. Thanks for everything!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food but pass on the dessertDinner and service was excellent. We had the open faced shrimp quesadillas that were filling without the feeling that your ruined your diet for the day. Add skinny margaritas and spicy guac and you have yourself a night out without overdoing it. The pistachio crepe dessert was just ok and something I probably could have lived without. Overall still a wonderful restaurant.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, very solid. EveryoneAs always, very solid. Everyone enjoyed their meal and had a good time, too.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ceviche!!Crab guacamole excellent.

Create Mexican, not just standard taco/burrito stuff.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was greatIt was easy to set up a reservation online. I wasn't late, but my entire party was slightly late and they were still accomodative. It was my friend's birthday and I asked if they could set up a nice dessert and they were more than glad to do so. Service was wonderful, food was amazing, and it wasn't too loud. My friends and I had a great time and we will definitely come back.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMexican Food LoverThis place is great! For a date. For a gathering. Wonderful food. Lots of options.

I had been to Dos Caminos several times when I lived in Manhattan and now returning as a tourist, I wanted to go back to a tried and true place for fabulous food! My guest and I sat outdoors (they have a nice outdoor area right in the middle of midtown) which added to the nice, relaxing atmosphere. Of course we started with the always delicious guacamole and I had enchiladas for my lunch entree. Delicious! Delicious! Delicious! Service was friendly and attentive. Dos Caminos is my go-to whenever I'm in the city!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been to Dos Caminos onI've been to Dos Caminos on Third a few times and have enjoyed it everytime.

I started my evening with a Mango Margarita, chips and salsa. Once my party was complete we were shown to our table and our drinks delivered to us. I love the guacamole that I make, it's gotten plenty of AAAA's but the one at Dos Caminos is awesome! We, my cousins and I were there to remissness about close members that had recently passed and enjoy each others company which we all needed, we are very very close, well, it was great for our spirit to be there. We laughed, cried and had good food, drinks and service. So thank you for making our special evening, more special. Will be back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Personal FavoriteGreat food, especially guacamole. I always hated guacamole until I tried it at Dos Caminos, now I'm in love!
