I cannot visit Phoenix without stopping in at least once to Los Dos Molinos as the food is always top-notch and the service is equally excellent. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough as it seems to get better with each passing year..

This restaurant was recommended by the clerk at our hotel. It is casual and offers a variety of Mexican food. Many of the dishes are designated with a "pepper" on the menu to indicate it is spicy. I asked if they could make a dish a bit less spicy, the answer was "no." I had "unspicy" soft beef tacos. They... More

I have been eating at los Dos for 20 years although this was my first time in ten years (it's a long way to go these days). Nothing has changed and that's a good thing! As always, I had the Adovada Ribs, and they were just as wonderful today as they ever were. A note of caution here; when they... More

The location on South Central Ave is a wonderfully charming place. The quirky and eclectic courtyard at this restaurant is a perfect place to enjoy a margarita and some excellent New Mexican food. Bring your out of town guests for an experience that they will not forget.

Be warned it's a bit on the spices side but a must visit. Don't head to the other Phoenix locations with the same name this one will make you feel like you are in Mexico. The courtyard is perfect and will literally make you feel like you are in Mexico. Food is awesome but a bit on the warm side... More

We grew up in El Paso, Texas. We know the real stuff. The real good authentic Mexican cooking! My favorite. The red enchilada sauce.

Dropped in Los Dos Molinos after a hike in South Phoenix. Atmosphere is very authentic Mexico, and food was very good also. We started with beers (decent selection), very thirsty after our hike, which we enjoyed with salsa and chips. For mains a couple of taco salads and I had the house special, the ribs which were excellent. The menu... More

For the past week, my family was in Phoenix enjoying a week of R&R. Unfortunately I could not join them but I did request they visit my favourite restaurant for awesome Mexican cuisine and bring me back a Chili Beef Burrito to Canada. I received the burrito on Saturday thanks to the Los Dos Molinos' excellent packing with thanks. You... More
