Our server Chelsi was very nice and attentive. Had the smoked wings, great flavor not overly salty. My fiancée really raved about the chicken chimi, the tilapia tacos were awesome.

Discovered Dos Segundos over a year ago and we have yet to be disappointed. Always flavorful food and a fun place to just hang out. service is excellent, and steak chimichangas are the best.

My wife and I decided to go for just drinks after an event at the piazza and ended up staying for more! We walked in and and were greeted friendly by the hostess. We walked up to the bar and our main bartender rob was extremely friendly and welcoming. He let us sample beers we've never tried and was extremely... More

Week day eve, place less than half full and reception quibbling over seating. We finally took high top in bar area, VERY LOUD MUSIC. Waitress basically 'what do you want' , no real knowledge of extensive tequila menu. Ordered 'special' and though it was on the board at an early hour they 'ran out'. Waited forever for chips and guacamole.... More

We stopped here for lunch, upon the recommendation of my son who has eaten here several times and loved it. It's a relatively small place, easy to miss as you drive by, and with street parking that gets competitive. The menu is not very big, but there were some specials on the chalkboard which added to the selections. I was... More

This place is great to go to in mixed company as its menu is mostly meat-centered but also has vegetarian options that really shine- at least what I sampled did. Definitely get the vegan seitan wings if they're available. They're heated just right and the vegan ranch sauce they come with is amazing. We ordered two vegan cheesesteak burritos to... More

Very fresh Mexican food. They have two types of chips too, which I like. The chips that go with the guacamole are different than the chips that go with the salsa-both great. The Chimichanga is my favorite. It is not your typical thick, deep fried brick that some places have, it is made to order perfection.

It's in my neighborhood, but so are a lot of other Mexican restaurants. The guac is good, and they do offer lots of vegan options, which is a plus. They deliver, but so do lots of other places. Bottom line: the food is good, but it's not that great or memorable.

Great food but loud atmosphere. Not suitable for first dates since its very loud in the restaurant and you can barley hear the people you are with. Everything I tried was great and the service was good.
