We've tried this spot a few times now, assuming that maybe we didn't order the right thing...trying different dishes that should be fool-proof, and have yet to get a dish that didn't seem like a waste of money. The last 'safe' best was an appetizer of skillet fries - french fries topped with chili con carne and cheese - which... More

had the enchilada's and they lacked on the filling (chicken) lots of sauce but not much inside. But what will probably keep me from going back was the service. They stuck us in the bar in corner and then forgot about us. No refills and never asked if everything was alright. Had no salsa for my food until half way... More

After many years of living just a few miles away, we decided to give this place a try .Our waiter seated us very promptly and checked on us all through out our meal.

I have found that they will fix your food any special way you like it if you just ask. It is better to go for lunch about 1:00 to 1:30 if you want something different when the rush is over. I like places that understand that each of us have different tastes.

Indifferent, under-spiced Mexican food, mediocre service. Tacos are the best thing I've tried. The enchilladas and breakfast items had very little flavor. Service is adequate. If you like mildly flavored Tex-Mex, you'll probably like it.

Dos Banderas is my favorite local Mexican restaurant. I eat there almost every Sunday after church. They have excellent food, service, and atmosphere. Their prices are also reasonable. The owner and staff are also very friendly.

We usually eat here for lunch because everyone likes it. Food is good and service is quick. Basic TexMex, large dining room. Chips and salsa are good and fresh. Great for large parties.

This is my favorite restaurant by far for Tex Mex or any, for that matter. GREAT frozen margaritas (not a fan of on the rocks) and always reasonable. Love the guacamole! I've been known to go there twice in one week!!

I went to Dos Banderas for dinner with family. All of our food was served at a great temperature. I`m allergic to onions and they pleasantly accommodated my food allergy. Food was freshly made and the staff are very nice.
