Service is friendly and efficient. Portions are generous. Try the Guacamole, it was fresh and delicious. The Shrimp dish is excellent but plantanes were a little overcooked (for my taste but that may be that's how they should be). The Chicken Enchilada is worth trying. Coffee was superior. Nice dinner out in Media

I had heard good things about this restaurant and was not disappointed! We went on Valentine's Day - my wife ordered chicken mole from the regular menu while I had the short ribs from the special Valentine's Day menu and both were great! Appetizers (homemade guacamole) and desserts (heart shaped brownies and plantain cheesecake) were outstanding! Service was well-timed and very friendly, like being invited into a friend's kitchen. We'll definitely come back!

My wife and I decided to try a new place in the area and settled on Dos Gringos. When we arrived we were very surprised at how small the space is. We had an 8pm reservation and still waited 15 minutes to get seated. That we didn't mind because the food was excellent! Very fresh and well prepared. The service was great and the Valentines Day menu was well priced. Overall great food and small space but would go back. Wouldn't recommend going with a large group.

The restaurant is very small, so I definitely recommend a reservation. But my friends and I really liked the food and the style of this place. We all really enjoyed the salsas they brought out, and out entrees were all fantastic. The Margarita mixes were probably too expensive for what they were, but, whatever. They were delicious and it was a special occasion. Our server was really good too, attentive but not overbearing. I will definitely go back, and I recommend it!

There is a lot to like about this tiny BYOB on Olive Street. The food is always interesting, the presentation so inviting. Our server was great. On other hand, I feel cramped in a restaurant usually only when there are so many empty tables, which happened to be the case after 3 of us were getting seated at a table for 2.5, presumably because the tables for 4 were all booked (only to see party of 3 at a larger table half an hour later). There should be some advantage to early open table reservation. We will be back for dining under the stars, this is a top spot!

We love this place! They always have interesting specials and an empanada of the day. This is not your Chi-Chis Mexican, rather it is flavors and ingredients of Mexican home cooking.

This is a tiny place, so it is always good to reserve. BYOB or BYOT - they provide tequila mixers.

This restaurant is teeny tiny and very cramped. Food was good but the atmosphere ruined the night: tables are very tightly spaced with barely any room to move; it is very loud; and not a great place to enjoy the company of others. Food was served so quickly that we received our appetizer a minute or two before our entrees were served. It was very clear that they were trying to turn tables quickly, we felt rushed to leave. It was a nice place to pop in for lunch if I happened to be in the area but we would not go out of our way to eat there again.

Last year I had an amaaaazing short rib dish here that was removed in the fall of '13. I really was hoping the the current dish was like that or would bring me back, but it was not. I felt like I should have just ordered the chicken enchilladas and called it a day but that's just my opinion. In my many visits, the food just didn't wow me this time which is sad.. the short rib dish didn't have much flavor but I couldn't pinpoint what exactly it was. Either way, I had a great server who we really enjoyed!

We had a table of 10 for our daughter's birthday last Friday night at 7:30. Would have loved a round table but those are few and probably only available at affairs, not restaurants. Dos Gringos is small but the food and service were fantastic. Loved that they made sure we got what we were entitled to for Restaurant Week, that not all of us had to order from the Restaurant Week menu, and that we could substitute if we wanted to. We will be back again for sure - it's hard to find great Mexican. Media is doing it right too!

My husband and I brought my father for his birthday. Our reservation was for 4:45pm and were seated right away. Our waitress, Nina G, was very attentive. When seated we were given 4 different salsas and chips. I really liked mixing the medium and spicy together. I ordered the guacamole and that was delicious! My husband got the tostones appetizer and it was incredible. They had pork and pineapple on top, amazing! Our entrees included chicken enchiladas, surf and turf fajitas, and camarones con ajo everything was delicious! For dessert we had a pumpkin cheesecake and banana flauta. They were heavenly. The prices were a little high, but the restaurant price was a good deal. We will definitely return.

I thought it was expensive for the quality/quantity of food and was not impressed with the atmosphere of 'under the stars.' We ate outside, sitting at a lopsided table and drank margeuritas from plastic cups. The food was okay. It wasn't a horrible experience, but I wouldn't return. Sorry.

Recommend the mole or enchiladas. BYOT margarita pitchers are just right. Unlike some other BYOT places, you don't need to prompt the staff to ask about salted rims or extra limes.

I visted Dos Gringos for my first "Dining Under the Stars" event and was very pleased overall. The service was a little lacking but I'm assuming that it's hectic with the summer under-the-stars events. The children's menu was decent and not too pricey. I recommend the quac to everyone but the rice left something to be desired. I would absolutely recommend this place to my friends and family. The atmosphere was fun and we had a great time.

We had not visited Dos Gringos for a while as it is often crowded but we liked the food so we headed back armed with our open table reservations. First impression on a lovely evening outdoors was great. We were seated at a table for two which was totally inadequate. We had to put our margarita pitcher on the side walk to make room for the food. The tables are just too small . We both ordered surf and turf fajitas. They were served on a platter with the meat and vegetables in a soupy center dish with bland rice, re fried beans without cheese, jicama slaw and crumbled cheese. It was all pretty bland. Seemed the food had gotten less spicy and flavorful. We hope to try again and order other dishes and specials before abandoning Dos Gringos.

They do a remarkable job handling reservations on a busy Dining Under the Stars night. The wait was bearable, and one feels fortunate to get a table with so many onlookers standing on the side. What an advantage they have offering Open Table reservations compared with the majority of eating establishments in Media. The food was fantastic. Very creative dishes. I am no expert on Mexican food, but the dishes ring of authenticity. Once again, the chips and salsa were great. They were slightly more disorganized this time -- just a very busy evening with beautiful dining weather. I attribute that to the volume and not a flaw.

We had a wonderful meal as we always do @ Dos Gringos. All 3 of us loved our food. Our waitress was new, but her fellow co-workers were attentive to our needs and made sure we had everything we needed. We had such a great time that we will be returning this Wednesday. Dos gringos is the best restaurant to go to during Dining under the Stars in my opinion.
