Drinks are terrible, restrooms stink, food not worth the money
By sanborja on 11/13/2005
I don't recommend this place. The sangria was just water, the apple martinis tasteless. Maybe their strength are tequilas? The shrimp empanadas were greasy, the only decent thing in this place as far as food is the guacamole salsa and the entrees? no big deal, not worth the money. The restrooms are disgusting! by a filthy storage room.

My husband and I went there tonight for the guacamole and decided to stay for dinner. We ere seated at 4:50pm and told the dinner menu would not be available until 6pm. We ordered from the very limited "Sunset Menu". We noticed at 5:15pm everyone else was ordering from the dinner menu. We had to ask for chips and salsa. We were told we would pay extra if we wanted that. Also at 5:15pm, our waitress said she was leaving and someone else would be our waiter. That is the last time anyone waited on us. We had to ask the manager for the check. The food and drinks were overpriced and nothing special. Too many good restaurants in NYC to go there again.
Leave after the Guac...

It was the first time eating there...I had heard that Dos Cominos had great mexican and I love good mexican. Well let me be the first to tell you that the food there is not very Mexican. I lived in San Diego for 12 yrs and this place would be open for a week serving mexican like that. The food was overcooked a bit, with very rich sauces that did not have traditional mexican flavors in them and the menu was weak. I dont understand how this chain is so popular with such poor food. I will say the Guac was very tasty and our server was good. -bp

On May 3, 2004 I took some friends for drinks and apps. The service was super slow and unattentive so I left a $9 tip on a $98 bill making the total $107. Someone at Dos Caminos changed the tip to $19 on the receipt and the total to $117.

I ate at the Dos Caminos in Soho this past weekend with a few friends. The service was horrible. Once seated we waited 20 minutes before I approached a staff member to ask if we could at least have water while we waited for our server to acknowledge our table. The staff member did not apologize but instead appeared to be irritated with my request. We had to request chips and salsa 4 times from the same waiter before a basket was brought to our table. To top it off our waiter brought the dessert menu after we had our appetizers because he forgot that we had ordered an entrée. If the food was great I would be willing to give the restaurant another shot in the hopes that they were simply having an off night; however in a city with a plethora of amazing restaurants, the food was nothing special and certainly not worth the sub par service.
Just don't go to this place.

I am from spain, please excuse my poor english. All entrees over $20 and not excellent food. Mashed black beans were disgusting and an order of three tiny tacos was $11. 40 minutes waiting fot the food. It is freezing outside even if your are under a heater. Crazy lines for the restrooms (dont drink too much beer!). Skip this restaurant and try any other place.
The Food! The tequilas! The dessert!

A few friends and I went to dinner there last weekend. SO glad we made reservations! Waited maybe 10 minutes, no biggie cause we got margaritas at the bar. In fact we got different tequlias when we had dinner. They have like over 100 or more. Patron is still my fav. The food at this place is great. The guac is so fresh and delicious. The ceviches are wonderful especially the tuna one. You'll really enjoy the tacos, at least I did. I had the tuna steak for my entree. One friend got the quesadilla, and raved. Other one that was good was the skirt steak with caramelized onions & beans. And get the fondue dessert!
