Please Please Please: DO NOT GO THERE – I went to Dos Caminos just once, with my boyfriend, and I swear they're not gonna see either of us again. Overpriced food and bad service that completely defeats the purpose of going out for Mexican food.
We were seated in the dining room in the basement. Kind of pleasant atmosphere. Then the waiter came even before we looked at the menu and asked us if we wanted guacamole with our chips, making us think it was complimentary... instead, it was $14 a cup!! After that, he gave us some kind and disinterested advice about the most expensive items on the menu... I ordered a lobster ceviche (specifying WITHOUT cheese) and after a wait the brought it with cheese! Then they say they remade it (it came back after 2 mins so.. ehm...) and the taste was nothing special and the portion was nothing more than a small appetizer.
After 40 mins, the waiter finally came for dessert. We orderede the fruit fondue and... the chocolate was COLD!! Does it even make sense for a foundue??!! Obviously, the bill arrived very late too, way after we finished that sort of fake fondue. Guess the bill?? $110!!! For sangria (good but small), guacamole, two small plates and a shared dessert!!
If people keep going there, they'll keep thinking they're good. Don't even make the attempt, don't waste your money.
Instead, right in front of it, there's an AWESOME Japanese BBQ restaurant (Gyu-Kaku) that mon-thu after 9:30 has a special deal with 50% on selected food and drinks and it's really worthy your time and your money!
