A word from Los Amigos
Since 1976 Los Amigos has been offering the area's best Mexican & Southwestern style cuisine.
As times change, so do tastes & today, “Mexican Food” has become very fragmented. Consequently the term “Mexican Food” means different things to different people.
Over the years, Los Amigos has dramatically grown from offering tacos and enchiladas (although still a very important part of the menu) to creative & complex fare as well as Southwestern inspired menu items. These dishes are in part the result of research & development through consulting with chef/authors as well as the superb culinary education that our chefs have received.
The Chef/Owner Curtis Taylor is a graduate of the Academy of Culinary Arts.

    We have been coming here for over 30 years, which we realized when we asked our server how long the restaurant had been in existence. Always friendly staff, from the front door to the serving/clearing people. The food is always fresh, the margarita choice terrific, the specials are special. Great place.

    Presentation was ok, nothing off the charts and the serving plates were on the plastic looking side. Portions were decent and service was good. My paella was quite overcome with spice even after I requested they dial it back. There was more rice than shellfish in my dish put plenty of chicken. Drinks were good. The dessert tray was completely unappealing. It wasn't the offerings but just the way they looked. Usually I have to be peeled away from the dessert tray. We are not rushing back there again, will try other local mexican places first.

    We enjoy Los Amigos' food more and more each time we return. It is great for dinner with family including kids, or your spouse or lunch with a friend. We brought life long foodie friends there because we knew it would not disappoint. Service was the usual excellent. The ambiance is the only item that rates below excellent. I can't define it, but it's a little drab. It won't deter me from coming back, but the ambiance--maybe the outside entrance--needs a little upkeep.

    Dined on 7/9/2014
    The new menu looked exciting but the paella I had for 20 dollars had uncooked rice and all the flavors were independent rather than infused to create delicious paella. My husband had the cheese tacos and they were good. The southwest rolls were much better before with the chipotle sauce. The fried ice cream was excellent as usual. We were surpried when waitress said there was no crushed red pepper available in restaurant when I asked for it. Overall it was ok, but too pricey for mediocre. I have been here before and quality seems to have deteriorated.

    Service friendly and responsive. Food very good and decent value. Thought the Mescalero Tequila Mussels appetizer was exceptional. Casual atmosphere and attitude, nicely decorated. The salsa with the included chips and salsa was better than the typical chain stuff. Definitely will be back.

    We were offered a seat in a booth or at a single table. We chose the booth, but it was in the back of the bar and was very noisy. The service was slow, but got the job done. They charge for chips and salsa on the refills, which seems a bit cheap to me. The quality of the food and drinks were good, but not great.

    This is one of our favorite restauants. They had a special Valentine's Day menu, and we both ordered the duck, which is not usually on the menu. It was delicious! However,the service was not up to their usual standards; it took about 20 minutes before they took our drink orders or acknowledged we were there. This is not the usual, however, and we will definitely return.

    My boyfriend and I made last-minute plans for Valentine's Day and Los Amigos politely sat us in the back room where the noise level is very quiet. We enjoyed our able for two and conversation with just the two of us, it made for the perfect evening. The food was great, service was quick, and the margaritas were delicious. Had it been any other night, we would have preferred to sit in the main dining room where there is more energy, but the seating in the back made for a perfectly enjoyable night for two!

    This was not our first time here and our dinner did not disappoint. Our experience was great! We had reservations so our party of seven was seated promptly. The waitress Krista was friendly and attentive. We all shared the calamari frito and two orders of the shrimp quesadillas (a special that night)- DELICIOUS! We loved the complimentary tortillas and salsa too. Our entrees arrived as we requested- not right on top of our appetizers- and hot. Everyone in our party was pleased with their choices. We will be back!

    My husband and I first ate at Los Amigos over thirty years ago. Although we don't eat out often, this remains one of our favorite spots. Over the last 30 years it has done nothing but get better and better. The food is delicious ... the waitresses are fun and helpful. We never feel rushed. I recommend reservations ... as the dining rooms fill up quickly and you won't want to miss your opportunity to eat there.

    From the elaborate appetizers (shrimp grilled with mango papaya salsa and corn scallion pancakes) to the entrees of beef tenderloins perfectly presented and the short ribs and tex mex Mac and cheese; Our palates were thrilled and satiated with healthy portions and these shortribs had body, texture yet melted in your mouth with spicy Mexican flair. Our desserts were the not too sweet perfect finale With a satisfying apple crisp and a chocolate mousse shooter. The service and personal touches made this a warm wonderful dining experience especially on a busy New Year's Eve Los amigos a 29 yr history has aged like a fine wine with cutting edge culinary savvy. For all occasions reasonably priced as well! A jewel of south jersey! Doc Joe

    What a nice surprise to find this restaurant on OpenTable. They have been here since 1976 and even though we drive by it many times we never stopped. The food was excellent especially the roasted beet salad and the fish tacos and burritos there was nothing not to like about this place. The only improvement could be the heating system. It was on the cool side.

    Tried this restaurant with a party of 8 over the holidays and it was a hit. We wanted Mexican, but not the same old chain in Deptford, or one of the quick service places. Made the reservation online and were seated promptly. The service was friendly, the drink and food menus had variety, everything we ordered was good or delicious. The stuffed peppers, chipotle shrimp soup, tamales, carne asada, fajitas, and fried ice cream were all worth going back for. The bill averaged about $30 pp with drinks and appetizers.
