We had not been here since the new owners took over but we were very pleased. Food was actually better than old ownership. Service was great and prices were good. This is a good old fashioned Mexican restaurant.

My nephew and his mom used to live here in town and love Amigos. So, of course we had to eat there for old time sake. My favorite appetizer are the soft shell fried chips and Salsa. The Entees are even better.
