Dos Caminos is the worst restaurant i have ever experienced. I went to this place for a bachelorette's dinner --8 of us.....1st of all this place is horrible!........I ordered a pina colada, but the waiter said they dont make that but they have a full bar in front of the restaurant,..Then he asked for IDS, I gave him my id & he said he cannot serve me alcohol because id was expired. My friends ordered a pitcher of sangria and I was unable to drink any of it, although i took sips of it,,,,so please restaurant police arrest me for sippin alcohol wit an expired ID that that shows that i am of drinking age. My friend asked for water for everyone and I noticed i did not get one, so I asked the waiter to bring me a glass of water, but when he brought it, the glass was empty and he never filled it, so I had to wait for the waiter to come to our table and i asked nicely for water in my glass....Half of us did not get plates or utensils, we had to ask for that as well...Jumbo shrimp was lacking flavor, all it had was canjun powder, and the saffron rice was watery which is very disgusting ($25 bucks) Then we we ordered dessert, one girl ordered something and then the waiter started to leave our table without asking if anyone else wanted dessert, so I asked nicely if i can order my dessert. My Bill was $55 bux, NOT! I will never go back, nor recommend any of my friends, in fact I will blog elsewhere about how horrible this place was.... thankyou - daily restaurant eater from NYC

Best Guacamole

I really loved Dos Caminos. The atmosphere is unique, fun and relaxing. The guacamole was amazing and by far the best I've ever had. It was creamy, yet refreshing and had a great balance. The tacos were great, the meat was well seasoned. The burrito was alright, a little too sweet for my liking. The service was friendly and helpful when choosing our dishes, but the restaurant was short staffed making it hard to get our waiter's attention. I've been craving that guacamole ever since and I can't wait to go back.

I've been to this Dos Caminos a few times as I live close by. Two weeks ago I had a terrible experience on a Thursday at around 7pm. We were told there would be a 15 minute wait. This turned into 50 minutes. When we finally sat down, we received the most terrible guacamole I've ever had in my life. It was basically a bowl of cilantro. Now I'm a cilantro fan but this was too much. My friend and I politely asked the server for a new serving. He didn't take the bowl. After our entrees arrived we again mentioned that the guacamole was not to our liking and that we didn't receive a fresh bowl. He replied " the guacamole guy was too busy". I'm not kidding! The service was beyond terrible. I refuse to again step foot in that establishment.

A Scam

This restaurant concentrates more on cheating you out of your money. For my party of 8 the busboy brought us two bowls of guacamole [we did not request it], so I expected to be charged $12 for each bowl as the menu states. Instead they claimed they had given us double portions, since there were 8 of us, and the total was $48- for average guacamole none of us had even asked for. The waitress was also very pushy, constantly asking us to order more sides and margaritas. Not to mention the food was very sub-par- Taco Bell has more flavor and imagination. Not impressed at all, and will not be returning. *Note: The manager was however extremely apologetic and assured me this was not typical of their restaurant, and offered much better service next time, which I appreciated.

Dos Caminos is wonderfully decoratred, with above average Mexican influenced food. The bar is large and crowded. The dinning room is also large and loud. The food may not be authentic Mexican, but it s very good. This is a fun place. Enjoy!

Went on business and was VERY disappointed. The guacamole was good, the drinks left a lot to be desired and then when the entree's came......WHERE'S the beef, the pork, the chicken????? The portions were too small to even fill up a 5 year old. The waiter would disappear and not return.... NOT a place to take friends OR family, let alone a business associate.

The only reason I've been here 5 times is the guacamole.. everything else isn't great for how much $$ you're paying. The service is too "cool" to bust ass, the drinks aren't great, the entrees are tiny but pricey... go for the guacamole then go home.

CELANTRO OVERLOAD!!

Gross.. they put so much celantro in everything and it tastes horrible. Overall the place was nice but not one thing I ate was good. To top it all off they tried to rip us off... I was examining the bill and noticed they charged $24 for a double sized guacamole which we did not order as a double and was not nearly finished when she came and took it away without even asking if we were done...it is clearly stated to be $12 on the menu. I questioned it and the waitress immediately took it off when she realized I discovered the lil scam they try to pull... make sure if you go their to examine your bill and the prices they put in.
