  • "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!"

  • "Overall good food/service but not sure if they used sink water or something else that was filtered using a sponge but the water tasted like lead."

  • "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. "

  • "We live about 15 minutes away and it is always a restaurant we enjoy going to for special occasions and a several times during the summer. It is a little expensive to go all the time. Great Mexican food especially the specials! "

  • "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!"

We will definitely be returning."

  • "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."

  • "My fiancée & I love this place. He loved the beer/cocktail selection. Food is amaze! 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!"

  • "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!"

  • "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, daughter (10) and I had dinner here...it was WONDERFUL!! Start to finish...the artwork on the walls was interesting and fit the theme. 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."

  • "Great food!! The tex-mex fare is great but the daily specials and southwest fusion items are even better!!! I recommend the paella and the carne asada--two if my faves. If you like lamb the lamb chops (only a special) are outstanding!! The only downfall is parking--they have none but that's NEVER stopped me from going in. Just make sure to bring quarters to park on the street or money to park in one of the casino garages. Mark the waiter is the one to have---he's the best!!"
