Our favorite Mexican restaurant in the Des Moines Metro area. Super service from the staff, and great Mexican dishes to choose from.

This is an excellent sit down Mexican Restaurant. It is easily handicap accessible which is important to us. The food is excellent, especially if you try the specials rather than the combination dinners. I especially like a dish named after the place the Los Tres Amigo's dish. It is excellent and both in quality and quantity. I always have plenty... More

When I moved to the area 10 months ago, I ate here once, and the food and service were good. Since then, I have repeatedly been disappointed for lunch and for dinner. The food is bland. The chips have a rancid taste. I was assured the chips are cooked fresh each day; the oil however, might not be fresh each... More

A quick decision to grab a bite before our weekly grocery trip turned out to be a pleasant surprise at Los Tre Amigos tucked away in the corner of a small strip mall in Waukee. Our first surprise was the tasteful decor and clean atmosphere. We were seated and served a large basket of crispy tortilla chips and nicely seasoned... More

Went here for lunch. Decent prices for lunch. Food was average to a little above. Wife loved margherita. I enjoyed the taco salad. Definitely worth a try.

Fresh chips and good, tasty salsa. Kids get cheese quesadillas and love them. Enchiladas are good, and chimichangas are crispy and tasty.

My husband ordered a meal for me. Received very quickly, very organized & friendly staff. Paid for food & brought to me. The food was still steaming. It was hot & cooked just like I was there eating. Thanks!

Went there for dinner on Sunday evening and the place was pretty full with families with lots of kids under ten. We waited over ten minutes for the first waiter to stop by our table and about 25 minutes for our food after we ordered. So if you in a hurry, you might want to try a different Mexican place....
