My wife and I have been here a few times for dinner. The food, in our opinion, is just ok. The shrimp tacos weren't that good...kind of spicy (and I like spice) and the fish tacos were kinda messy. Margaritas are outstanding. With all the mexican options in town, i doubt we'll go back.

Always consistently fresh and tasty. Fun atmosphere. Good margaritas. Family friendly environment. Highly recommend if you want a Mexican food experience that is not a chain and is a cut above the standard, small place.

...to their fish tacos and house margaritas. Never had a bad meal. The crowd and waiting line is a testament to the quality food at a good price. And all blessings on their guacamole!

We stopped in for dinner on a weekday night to try Amigo's. The place was just moderately busy on a weekday evening. They serve a variety of Mexican dishes. We sampled the shrimp tacos and the Lime Shrimp entree. Both were delicious. They also serve margaritas by the glass. A little pricey but not exorbitant. Service was warm and friendly... More

Had dinner here on a Monday night. Place was hopping with lots of families. Service was good, but I had to refill my own water glass. Had excellent fish tacos. My friend had the shrimp tacos. We both were very happy with our choice. Chips were crisp and salty, the guacamole was just OK in my book. Salsa was good.... More

The service was very great and the atmosphere was great. The food was ok. Mexican food is my favorite and coming from California I'm a tough critic of authentic Mexican food. The food was fresh but lacked flavor. I will try it again next time I'm town.

It's a pity, too. The food is pretty good, and the margs are, too, but... everything about this place just screams, "We don't care what you want, this is how we do things here!!" They then seem to just go down the list of things they WON'T do for you... NO reservations accepted. NO split plates. NO substitutions on menu... More

It is the sign of a good Mexican restaurant to have authentic options as well healthy modern selections. This one certainly offers these options. The steak fajitas were served with black beans and rice and the avocado slices were a nice inclusion to the generous portion of meat. There are both fried fish and grilled fish soft taco options served... More

We had a delicious lunch at Amigos Cantina. The empanadas were great and the margaritas were heavenly. We will come back and bring a designated driver with us!

Quality food prepared in traditional Mexican style. This is not your run of the mill Mexican! Great Margaritas. Unusual dishes that are all well prepared. Can get crowded on weekend nights.
