stopped by on the way back to the hotel and saw this place in front of Caesars and took a chance. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the wait staff. Appears to be frequented by locals who work in the casinos. frriendly family atmosphere. Definite place to repeat. Really liked the deserts. Great for the trip on a budget or for... More

this had been a favorite spot of ours for the past 6 years but our most recent visit will be the last.. while the food was good; the drinks and the outrageous prices of the drinks were unbelievable. The mix for the margaritas was perhaps the worst i have ever had.. the owner didn't appear to care; so with so... More

First of all, anyone who says they have the best margaritas they've ever had has never tasted a real lime in their life. That margarita was made with a low quality mix. The cheese inside my enchilada was not melted.

Very nice authentic place. Could use some upgrading though. Very pleasant staff, nice waiter, etc. Chips were good but salsa could have used more heat and flavor. Food was fair to decent nothing great. Hard beef tacos were the best. Beans were good rice was so so. Nice dinner but could have been better.

My family and I came here last Friday night and loved it. Super low key feel. But the food was amazing, the margaritas were the best I've ever had, and the service was awesome. Definitely recommend!

My husband and I had dinner here for the first time this evening. The food was delicious, especially the deserts. The prices are fair and the service great also. We will go back next time we are in town.

This restaurant was recommended by a local salesperson and I am very glad they told us about it. The place doesn't look very big from outside, but it was deceiving. Inside was large and very nice! The food and service were great! You will not be disappointed if you like Mexican food!

Just went for dinner today. Service was poor at best. Food tasted like microwaved frozen and tasteless. Waitress didn't seem to know the menu herself. Never plan to go back.

Los amigos always has a place near and dear to my heart. Heck I actually learned to walk stairs on the original back stairs over 35 years ago. Menus change, people come and go but the chile rellenos are still consistently the best in the country. I haven't been back into town for a few years and I was scared... More
