Dos has the standard menu of all Mexican restaurants in the Midwest. They are just an average place. They used to have a location closer to campus that was closed - probably because it always smelled like vomit.

Visited Dos Reales with 17 other see sorority sisters and their moms for Moms' weekend. Despite our huge table service was good. Space a bit cramped for this size group. Food was very good. These times of large volume can be very telling of how a staff works together and this staff worked effectively to get the job done.

The choices are good, as is the service. We have dined at this location several times. This was my favorite place to go when they made their tamales in house. It seems that they no longer do tgat. The food is served hot and with a smile. Still one of the better restaurants in the area, for Mexican food.

Very attentive to the groups's needs--one person in our party didn't realize there were onions in her tacos, so asked to be taken out, only had to wait briefly and the server was so gracious about it. Even the manager came to make sure she was happy, and technically it was her own fault! Food was delicious and perfectly cooked!... More

A solid Mexican find, the Arroz con Pollo and burritos were fantastic, even for a picky Californian. Service was terrific and food was a great value. On our regular rotation list and definitely recommend!
