It is nice to be known and called by name!!! At the door the receptionist knew me and both girls very willing to help us.It was a very good feeling to know they were taking care of us to be sure everything was perfect...it even seemed like they gave us the best waiter! I am mostly deaf and so being able to hear is a big issue. I always ask for a booth and they always give it to me which is great for being able to hear! Our waiter this time deservered an award! I am sorry I can not remember his name!!!!! Our chips were always full, sauce was in bigger bowls as we told him we were salsa lovers and our drinks kept full. Our waiter was Excellent!!! He never missed an opportunity to serve us!!

Chicken fajitas and margarita excellent, as was the service. Fire-roasted chile rellenos disappointing. They were not fried/crispy. They had some good flavors, but one had too many pepper seeds, making a very seedy/woody hot bite not to my taste.

We patronize Dos Rios a few times a year, always using Open Table to make a reservation. We've run into this situation just about every time: Dos Rios uses Open Table as a "get in line" service vs. a true reservation. One of our pet peeves is that if you have a reservation, a table is reserved for you at that time, not put you in the waiting list. They were very busy (happy to see during these trying times) with very large parties. When we arrived (early) the host asked if we would wait until our reservation time, which was fine. 10 minutes passed our time I checked back in and was told "soon as possible". 10 minutes later I had to remind them of our reservation, which was not 20 minutes late and told that the table was ready but the server needed time to catch up. We did get seated at another table about 5 minutes later. Service from there on and food were both great. Joe (server) did a great job. Manager was cordial and nice. Again, my issue is around the reservation process and I do see this with a handful of other restaurants who use OT as a queuing process vs. a true reservation process.

our waiter JOEL was wonderful - all of our orders were correct (table of 6) came in a timely manner. he kept coming back checking on us to see if we needed anything.
if we go again - i would request JOEL to be our waiter.

It definitely could have been an off night, we were there on a Sunday evening, but service was absolutely terrible, and the place was pretty empty, so we expected much better. We had to ask for plates, drinks, etc multiple times from multiple employees to make things happen. Food was good - queso and guacamole were great, margaritas were made well, but main course was thought to be so-so by most of our party. In times of global pandemic, where any dinner out is a very special occasion, I was disappointed with our experience.

This 1 Star rating is because of a total lack of Covid awareness. Visited on 11/11/2020 and had reserved a table outside. People were walking around in the restaurant and bathrooms without masks. On the patio was a large group of 14 people in a spot for maximum 6-8 people, social distancing from the other guests was totally ignored. I didn’t notice disinfecting of tables or chairs. The bar was packed and the Food to go pickup was at the bar with several people within 2-3 ft of the other guests. The staff however was wearing masks. I cannot safely return (not even for To Go orders) until post Covid. I hope that the restaurant management will better enforce the Covid rules.

The food is awesome. Mexican cuisine bumped up three notches! Great flavor profiles, fabulous margaritas, expect a crowd so go early or make a reservation.

This was our first time since Covid to eat inside a restaurant, and it was a really good experience. We had reservations and were seated immediately. Everyone wore masks, and the menus were contactless. Our meals were served quickly and tasted wonderful! The restaurant was fuller than I had anticipated, but we were well spaced from other customers. I watched the care that was taken in cleaning tables and chairs after other customers left, and it was very reassuring to see. Thank you!

The food and drinks are always great. The only thing I don't like is the refried beans. It is pricy for Mexican food; so we don't come as often as other places. The hostess and wait staff are great!

We rsvp on open table but when you arrive they put you on the wait list as if you had just walked in. We waited another 25 mins to be seated. The service was partially slow and waiter had to be hunted down by another waiter. The food was great as usual.

Overall our experience was good there. The only issue was the sun blinding me while eating. We have been here several times before and during Covid and prefer the restaurant area vs bar. The bar area can get noisy when at full capacity. Right now it’s at 50% capacity. Food is always good. Service is always great. Everyone is friendly.

Excellent food, glad to sit and eat in a wonderful restaurant. The service was friendly and though they were busy and probably low on staff, we never went without! They were very eager to please Us. Going through OpenTable is wonderful! Our wait time maybe a couple of minutes, but that’s it...love it!

This is probably the best Mexican food I have had. I live in Dallas and the food there is just not quality. Dos Rios was fresh, obviously from made from scratch, and delicious. Cannot wait to come again.
