Disgusting!! – Six of us went to Los Dos Molino's last night. This has been a favorite of all but one of ours for years - one was in town visiting and had never been. We raved about it the whole way down there. We told him how super spicy everything was and how great the food is. We were all shocked at how mild the salsas were - I even asked about it, three of us ordered the roasted pork special with green chili (waiter recommended). Everyone's food was so salty that none of us finished our food and no one took home their leftovers. We ordered one piece of tres leches cake to split because they are known for it. It came out with a birthday candle on it for me so they passed it down to me and I saw 3 big green circles on it. IT WAS MOLD!!!! We called the waiter over and showed it to him and he said, "that's not good" and said he'd bring something else. I said, "No, I don't want anything else to eat". I called him over afterwards and told him how totally disappointed we were from start to finish and how we'd raved about the place all the way over, etc., etc. and how embarrassed we were bringing someone...blah blah blah. He apologized and we got our bill which included an 18% gratuity. He didn't even take the moldy cake off the bill!!!! We were so disgusted we didn't even tell him. We just paid and left. We all agreed that we'd never go back again!!! Cross that one off of my "favorites" list.
good food, GREAT drinks – you don't go to Los Dos to be pampered by waitresses or to marvel at the decor - you go for great mexican food and a magarita. you won't be disappointed. if you like hot food, ask for some recommedations - but expect the magaritas to go down faster and assign a designated driver! one of our favorite places in phoenix.
2 strikes and yer out Los Dos – Just to let people know..the horribly rude woman is still around. I was insulted by her 3 months ago when we first moved to the area and Los Dos seemed to be the most popular place around Undaunted we tried it this week to give them a second chance. The staff was thin on the ground and frantic, so the growling hosttess decided to help out by taking drink orders and throwing menus at people. I asked if they served agua fresca drinks ( not the most unusual request in a mexican place ) and the response was "'aqua what!.. I don't know what you are saying, I'll come back when you can make up your mind".....never to appear again. We waited another 5-10 minutes and walked. Our first experience was average food and a greeting so rude I truly wasn't sure if it was some kind of 'fawlty towers' type comedy angle. Naw...they are just plain ole' bad mannered.
Best authentic mexican food I have ever had!!!! – If you like spicy...this is where you want to go. This is the real deal. From the pitchers of margaritas to the enchiladas. Its worth the wait at the door. The only restaurant with better mexican food is in Mexico!!!
save your money & time... – I've owned and operated many successful mexican restaurants & cantinas in California and Texas, where there is both true competition and educated diners/patrons. "Los Dos" is "Los Zeros" in my opinion. The food is average at best, (though the adovada is OK). The location is ridiculous and is only compounded by the rude service and the obnoxious wench pretending to play "hostess". I've heard more negative commentary about this "Soup Nazi" personality throughout the city than any restaurant should be allowed. For the considerable drive this restaurant offers to most patrons, the very least you should expect is civility from the staff. What a joke. Save your money.
A PHX Institution – Each dish at Los Dos is made with loving care. You can see it in the presentation and taste it with each bite. What makes Los Dos stand out from the rest of the pack is their unique use of spices in their sauces and salsas. The sauces are what gives the dishes their flavorful kick. If you don't like spicy, be sure and tell the wait staff.
If you go during peak hours, a wait is inevitable. Relax with a frozen lime margarita and get your taste buds ready for this firey and delectable fare.
You Better Like it Hot – This is the perfect "hole in the wall" family-run restaurant. The food is incredible and well worth dealing with spotty service. Everything tastes fresh and homemade. Fair warning for those not accustomed to New Mexico-style chile and salsas: these are very spicy and full of flavor. If you have kids or a large group, you can't go wrong.
Highly recomended for the adventurous eater! – The food here is very spicy & super hot (unless you request otherwise), yet it is extremely flavorful. The margaritas are in what could be used as a giant fish bowl. The two spot that you will find the most fun are the south Phoenix location on Central & the original location in Springerville, AZ. Springerville is in the middle of northeast nowhere Arizona close to Showlow, AZ. This is a family owned & operated restaurant & everything they offer, aside from the liquor, is hand made freshly every day.
Are You Kidding Me !?!? – As a former Phoenix resident, I am amazed at the negative comments regarding this establishment. Whenever I am in Phoenix, I make sure to get my Los Dos fix. The location is historic, the staff is polite (duh...it helps if you are polite to them!) and the "wait" is part of the experience. Perhaps they, occasionally, close early because they've run out of their freshly prepared items. Try to stop and think before you criticize. If you want a never-ending supply of mass produced food, go to Ch*vy's. Check your egos at the door, grab a pitcher of margaritas and quit whining!
shocking – My wife and I went to the one on Alma School Road for lunch on sat. sep. 3.
Service was below average at best.
The "food", -$9.50 for two empty taco shells-, went untouched back to the kitchen.
My burro was generic and tiny.
For those prices the food should be tasty and plentyful. It was the opposite.
Mild food is not the only thing they cant prepare here...
