    Food was Good, Bar was out of Martini glasses so they served in a really small glass. I stopped the manager who responded What's up, then assured me that the glass are the same size.

    We had reservations and we’re seated as soon as we arrived. Our waiter didn’t rush us at all and made sure we had what we needed. We love to eat at Dos Rios.

    Asked for table for 6. They put us in a booth, too small for 6 adults. Had to request to move. Food was good. Service was slow. Restaurant was not crowded. I’m a frequent customer here. The service has gone down compared to previous visits.. I will think about finding an alternative place to dine next time.

    Food was really good. It took a while for the order to come out and they weren’t that busy. The alcoholic drinks were not strong for the price we paid. They should have been half the price or double the alcohol.

    We’re regulars at Dos Rios and enjoy eating there. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Service was ok, but think they were short staffed. Kitchen was apparently backed up due to a large group so we had to wait longer than normal for our meal. Really didn’t have a problem waiting, but when we eventually got our meal it clearly wasn’t fresh off the grill. Food was warm like it had been under the heating lamp for a while and not the typical hot food we are usually served.

    Food was not as good as it normally has been in the past. Drinks from the bar specifically margaritas were the worst I’ve ever had anywhere. Did not drink the three we tried. Total waste! Manager was not willing to fix issue either. Been coming here for many years at least one to two times a month. Very disappointed. Our waiter was very kind and attentive.

    Loved the food and service as Dos Rios Mexican Bar & Grill! The margaritas were good and strong (I love a good flavored margarita!). The chips, salsa, and queso were so good. Our entrees were fantastic - taco salad w/fajita chicken (dressing was super cold but otherwise good); fajitas (great!) grilled shrimp + cilantro rice + black beans (amazing - especially the cilantro rice and beans! ordered more cilantro rice). Our server Michael was the best! I boxed up my queso and he brought me a bag of hot, fresh chips even though we still had some in the basked. He was attentive but not overbearing and very friendly. The young ladies at the hostess stand were very friendly as well. We arrive right on time for our reservation but a booth wasn't ready yet. We were happy to take a table, but a booth opened up as they were cleaning. We were flexible but they were accommodating. We'd return!

    Great food & drinks. Didn’t particularly like the salsa as it had a smokey chipotle taste & green salsa was way to hot as the server warned us. Really like traditional homemade fresh salsa & chips is the best! Definitely we will be back.

    Apparently the $32 single serving beef fajitas no longer come with fajita veggies. So you basically get thin beef slices with rice, beans, salsa and tortillas. Over priced and stingy.

    Being short on staff seems to have affected the level of service at this restaurant as well as their attention to serving food hot. Management jumped in to re-deliver food. These are difficult times for both the business owner and the patrons.

    This was our first visit to Dos Rios, and we will be back. We were impressed with our server Jack when we learned that we were only the second or third table he had ever waited on! He will soon be a most exceptional server. The drinks and fajitas were very good!

    After reading reviews of lacking service I was hesitant to set up a Friday date night after a LONG week for both of us. I couldn’t have made a better choice. Our server was on point & our food was spot on! The acoustics are not the best for a first date, but do yourself a favor and book a table TODAY!
