I give this relatively tiny place props for not 100% toeing the Tex-Mex line- there were some surprises along the way. My partners Mahi dinner was almsot as ifit came from an American seafood house- properly grilled with broccoli and white rice, and a simple salad. My Tacos Al Carbon were 100% on target, and the black beans and Pico... More

We've stopped in here a few times. Mainly after work. The margaritas are good, not watered down. The food was good. The service was fine. Nothing really stood out, but I remember enjoying everything we had. Generally speaking, I only remember something when it knocks my socks off or if it's terrible. I just remember enjoying myself and then moving... More

I have been there a few times as it is across from the Braddock st train station and like the place a lot. I especially like the enchiladas but other members of my family have had fish tacos or black bean soup and liked what they ordered. It is a cozy neighborhood eatery. Very friendly with a nice bar also.... More

I stopped for a late lunch and got the pork taco daily special. The food was fresh and tasted great. Nice service and good draft beer selection. I liked the food better than District Taco. Would definitely come back.

Dos Amigos has consistently fresh, great tasting food. I really love the Mahi Mahi tacos but have had the chicken enchiladas, guacamole, and more. Service is usually good.

I had driven by this place several times and was always curious about it. I finally had an opportunity to go with some friends and we were greeted warmly and seated very quickly. The waitress was very nice and attentive. We were served the standard nachos and salsa. My friend ordered the black bean soup and I ordered the Taco... More

I wish TripAdvisor allowed half star ratings, because I think Dos Amigos is actually a 3.5. We went to Dos Amigos on a recent Friday evening because it is in our neighborhood and we had heard good things about it. As in most popular places in Alexandria on weekends, the place was packed and the volume was high. We were... More

Dos Amigos cooks all food and sauces on site, which gives each dish a home cooked taste. They also stay true to the Southwestern style of Mexican food (many places here that advertise Mexican, are South American or El Salvadorian). Every dish is good and I have to be careful not to fill up on the yummy chips and salsa... More

It is simply average. A number of apartments are newly located near the Braddock metro and there are limited (very) close restaurants. Dos Amigos is a nice setting as a local authentic Mexican restaurant. Convenient location. Free chips. Sauce was very watery. Food was ok. Service was a little slow getting bill. Not bad, not great. I am not really... More

Nice neighborhood place not too far from Old Town Alexandria. Food is good, you won't be disappointed. In particular, fish tacos and enchiladas are well done
