An utterly unwelcoming hostess. Sticky table top. Filthy floor under the table. Two inedible entrees. Our waitress volunteered to have one entrée removed from the bill which was fine. Of all the good restaurants in Rehoboth, we must have been asleep to go here.

We visit Dos Locos every time we are in Rehoboth Beach. Always a delicious time. They even take reservations which is wonderful as I hate to wait to be seated. We have not had a meal that we did not love. Margaritas are fantastic!

The Delmar Quesadilla is an amazing dinner. It is stuffed with lump crab meat and shrimp. It is a very big portion of quality seafood. Jacob our server was attentive and adorable. Dos Locos is one of our favorite restaurants in Rehoboth. It is not your typical Mexican food.

This restaurant was highly recommended by a few people. I was however disappointed. Fajitas had no flavor whatsoever. It had to be 90 degrees in there. We couldn't even enjoy ourselves even if we tried. My family was dripping sweat during dinner. Very disappointed.

we were a party of 4 adults and 2 children. We were seated upon our arrival, slightly ahead of our 6:00PM reservation. Our waiter Artem and his wife Maria treated us well! One of our orders was not prepared properly and it was quickly corrected. The food was flavorful, not too spicy. Complimentary chips and salsa were appreciated. Fried ice cream was delicious!!

Dos Locos is one of our regular places on Rehoboth Beach. The service is friendly and prompt. The menu is broad with something for everyone- a particular treat is the stone grill- your choice of meat of fish with great marinades and rubs served on a hot stone so you cook it to your own liking at the table. We encountered an Open Table problem- OT mysteriously cancelled our reservation an hour before arrival but the Dos Locos staff had us seated in no time. Always an enjoyable meal at Dos Locos.

Although the food was delicious and the service was outstanding, the music was highly offensive. Multiple expletives throughout. Was very loud. When we asked to have the music changed we were told "no, management makes us keep it fresh". Mind you there were many children present with f bombs every other word.

The food was not outstanding for the expensive prices. The ground beef was very greasy, as if it was cooked on a griddle and was hardened into balls of grease. The chicken was over salted and overcooked. The drinks (strawberry daiquiri and pina colada) were the best we've ever had though! Cheers to the bartender!

This used to be one of the best spots in Rehoboth for great Mexican food. However, our food during our last visit was terrible. Burrito and enchiladas were tasteless. No nuance of flavor and consequently, no cohesion of flavor in the overall dishes we ordered.

Dinner:

Lobster Burrito - lobster was potentially either frozen too long or very over cooked. The texture was chewy, “rubbery” and lacked any flavor. The green sauce was overpowered either because there was not enough on the dish or because it was cooked off or it lacked spice/seasoning/salt. In short, the only flavor that came through was flour tortilla and sour cream.

Lobster Enchiladas - Generally, the same as the lobster burrito.

Salsa- chunk tomato. No other flavor.

Dessert:

For dessert, we tried the classic Mexican Sopapillas. This dessert when served in CA, MD, DC, VA and TX is a flour tortilla warmed and cut, drizzled with honey and it cinnamon and finished with whipped cream on the side.

I received flour tortilla cut, but fried such that the soft flour tortillas were turned into hard-crunchy “chips” and drizzled with honey. In sum, this dish was not the typical preparation of the classic sopapillas dish. That would have been okay, had the menu mentioned that this was an alternative preparation of the classic dessert or even describing it as a fusion of sorts, but the menu listed it as sopapillas. It was not enjoyable.

Service:

The service was prompt and courteous.

Environment:

Clean, festive and enjoyable.

Overall:

Any restaurant can have a bad or off night, however my most recent experience at Dos Locos seemed to be most related to a recipe and/or cooking/preparation issue in the kitchen. Which of course is the most important choice (quality and taste) of food when I dine out. The burrito and the enchilada are classic Mexican dishes that are really the back-bone of Mexican cooking. Swap out the lobster and add chicken or beef and the result would have likely been the same.
