    We didn't want to eat at the casinos, so we ventured outside hoping to find better food. Although this place is close to the outlets, there are better places to eat in Atlantic City. Our waitress walked right past me multiple times when I tried to flag her down (it's not that big a place so she should have seen and/or heard me) for simple requests like napkins. Food is just OK.

    My wife & our friends have always enjoyed Los Amigos. It's fun, colorful and has great margaritas. This evening, I decided I would try the roast pork fajitas. But instead of a sizziling plate of freshly grilled onions and peppers, and pulled, or chopped roast pork, I was served a very mushy bed of overcooked onions and peppers under a large scoop of what looked like mashed pork. The pork looked very much like the pulled pork you can buy in ready-to-eat tubs, in the grocery store. It did not look at all appetizing, or fresh, and was not worthy of this otherwise fine establshment. This dish needs work. Look to Chipolte for proper pulled pork texture. That said, my wife LOVED her paella. Service was great and the cocktails were super!

    While the food was good, clearly they were unprepared for the amount of people who arrived for dinner after the Blake Shelton concert. The restaurant had one server on the upper level and one on the lower. The food had to be sent in because it got cold waiting for our waiter to bring it out.

    We had a great experience here! The margaritas (especially the banana) were delicious! We had a Mexican pizza for an appetizer...yummy! And I had the seafood chimichanga special & my husband had the seafood paella. Both were authentic and delicious! The hand painted walls and atmosphere were fun, we will be back and recommend this fun find to anyone who loves Mexican food!

    The food is great but the only parking near the restaurant which we used in the past is now closed. It was worth the parking fee but now parking is impossible. After searching every street for a spot I ended up in a garage 5 blocks away. The pain was greater than the pleasure so Los Amigos will do with out me in the future. Very sad!

    This restaurant is across the street from the start of the Atlantic City outlet shops. The staff is wonderful. I have eaten at Los Amigos a number of times that the staff (including Cynthia) remembers my name and what I like to drink and eat for dessert. The service is fast. The first bowl of chips and salsa are free, and are more than enough for one person. I love their burritos as well as the flan. I make it a point to visit the restaurant when I am in town.

    Went there for my birthday. I wanted Mexican food, and two others had been there before. The atmosphere walking in is unique. Very narrow bar room, but fun. Good service by the bartender Jim made it even better. The chips and salsa were a nice touch with our drinks. We were seated upstairs. The walls are colorful and the menu is very large. All 6 of us ordered different entrees. Most of the group thought the food was good, but not great. My black bean soup was only lukewarm and seemed like it was the bottom of the pot since it was all beans and no broth. The seafood paella I ordered was alright, but not the paella I had at other restaurants. It was more broth than food. All in all, a good time, but only average food.

    We have never had anything bad here. They seem to be a combination of Mexican & Tex-Mex. Went again during Restaurant Week for lunch with friends. One friend had never had Mexican before but was willing to try. He also has some stomach issues & we weren't sure Mexican was the best for him but he wanted to try. Server was wonderful steering him toward the best foods for him to enjoy. Offered to put any sauces on the side so if he thought they were too spicy he would be ok. This was a good call since even the verde sauce he thought was really hot. For the record the rest of us did not feel that way he is just really sensitive. I believe they also have a Gluten Free menu which is really nice to know.

    We tried out this restaurant to start off our 2014 AC Restaurant Week. We had no idea of what to expect since we would have never heard of this place had it not been for Restaurant Week, and the need for a place that did lunches on Sunday. We were a party of 4. We had some margaritas (the banana and mango were sooo yummy!). The girls thought the taste and alcohol level were perfect, whereas the men wanted more tequila (typical). Appetizers: We had the guacamole salad and potato chorizos. Everyone loved both. Entrees: Enchiladas, pork fajitas, and ultimate burritos. Everything was very tasty, but the burritos were SUPER yummy!!!!! LOVED IT. Desserts: Flan, churros, & sopapillas. Everything super tasty. We'll totally be back!!

    The first time at this Restaurant, I read some review before decided to make reservation at this place. We start with chip and salsa , add up with Guacamole, fresh Guacamole, and my husband ordered Seafood Paella, the seafood fresh.. I love shrimp and spicy food, so I ordered " Tabasco Tequila Shrimp" mmnm.... Yummy and the shrimp cook to perfection.. With pitcher of their Margaritha , we had wonderful Mexican dinner! Definitely recommended for people who love spicy Mexican food, and we will come back to this restaurant when we come back to Atlantic City again...

    Looking for Mexican food in AC look no further than this skinny little gem of a restaurant. Los Amigos is in easy walking distance of the convention center, sitting on the east end of the outlet mall next to the Hospital. The guacamole is awesome as is their mole sauce. You can make a meal out of the addictive chip & salsa and margaritas so go easy in those chips! The Divorciado Burritto is Huge, you'll like it here!

    The surrounding area near this restaurant has seen a dramatic improvement as the newer outlet shops have developed around it. Los Amigos continues to offer great margaritas and a relatively wide menu. On the most recent visit, our service was great and the food was still awesome. I wish they would bring the chicken criollo back to the menu and extend their hours (at least on Friday and Sat nights). They close to early on the weekends. In the older days of AC, this was the place to hang out for late night food and drinks!

    Great time to be had here at Los Amigos. Hadn't been in years. Came back for the Delish food And yummy margaritas. Great group environment. They pushed together lots of tables for our party of 10. The tall chocolate kahlua toffee mousse made for a better scene than watched in Harry Met Sally. Our group went wild for it.

    Based on some of the online reviews I was apprehensive to dine at Los Amigos. However, I had a very good experience. The specials were interesting and the menu had a good variety to choose from. Our server was attentive, creating a nice flow to our dinner. The food was delicious. Note, a basket of chips and salsa are complimentary with your meal, contrary to online reviews.

    The fish tacos were overcooked, the fajitas were greasy, the guacamole was flavorless. All in all, the food was poorly prepared. With two glasses of sangria, the bill was over $70. Too expensive for disappointing Mexican food. On the positive side, the service was efficient.

I ordered the sampler which was kind of a disappointment because they gave you tiny mini samplers that wasn't worth the $12. My fiancée ordered smothered burritos and loved it! It was so big he couldn't finish it! Great place! We'll be back!

    The food was good, I have had better mexican food but it was still very decent. The prices were reasonable and the service was quick. I ordered the quesadilla and my bf had beef fajitas with the corn tortillas. For you celiacs, good place to dine in Atlantic City because they have a gluten-free menu. Drinks were good too. It's in the area where the outlets are so we shopped there in the afternoon and went for dinner across the street. The place was easy to find and despite it's small size, quite roomy; the tables had good spacing between them. I would come back.

    My husband and I brought tickets to see the Journey/Rascal Flatts concert in AC for a Sunday. I didn't want to do the casino dining thing, so I went to Open Table checking all kinds of venues...sports bars, Italian, etc...then it dawned on me to check out Mexican food, as the last time we truly dined with my son and his wife was in Cancun. So there I found a few, but the one I kept coming back to was Los Amigos. The reviews were good and the idea of having really good margarita's caught my eye. So I made the reservation and it was very convenient to where we parked, (Ceasars) and to the boardwalk hall where the concert was. It was the perfect place to relax and enjoy great food and drinks. Highly recommend it!

Our server was excellent, she had outstanding menu knowledge and was very nice. Our food was AWESOME!! I had the shrimp & crab enchilada which was served with a salad and rice...so amazing, one of the best things I have ever eaten, fantastic Margarita... flan for dessert. Creamy and delish!! We can't wait to go back! Only one problem...it will be very difficult for me to try something else only because it was so good.
