Review of Amigos Cantina

Reviewed 22 July 2014

Menu looked too good to be true with lots of variety, but chicken tacos were pretty dry. The kids mac and cheese was amazing and a HUGE portion. I would maybe try again, but would order something with a sauce or dressing next time. Service was good.

Very good Mexican food at a decent price, nice family atmosphere and outside seating. Its worth going if you like Mexican food that's more than just rice and beans. Varied menu too.

Wonderful patio in the back of the restaurant for outdoor dining! You'll start with chips and salsa - average on both counts. Chips are slightly thick and more crunchy than crispy, but still tasty with the salsa. They have been voted "best margarita" but this isn't a rank I would agree with - unless you like tequila with a squeeze of lime juice, they are too strong! Food came out quickly. Our table enjoyed a quesadilla, stuffed poblano and fish tacos. The food was hot, fresh and with nice presentation. Flavors were good - very enjoyable meal but certainly not the best Mexican food I've ever had. Staff was very friendly and offered excellent service. Give it a try - you will enjoy, especially if looking for a relaxed place to dine outside!

Don't let the store front fool you. This place is huge inside and has a pretty large outside patio around back. We dined on the patio for lunch and were promptly greeted and waited on. Both the chips and salsa were fresh and the salsa has a little bite to it. We took advantage of the luncheon specials for $8.99 which includes a soft drink. The Portobello quesadilla with cheese was huge and very tasty. Not the "usual" Tex Mex fast food. The fajita tacos came with individual tortillas and a side order of corn pepper melody. Again, everything was really good and showed some creativity by the chef, although I personally did not like the corn melody being cold. The wait staff were very friendly and efficient and the patio was very quaint. We're looking forward to a return visit soon. So reasonable too.

There were four of us that dined here for a business dinner. The food was excellent ,and everyone was so full we could not get dessert. The staff was nice and cheeked on us regularly. We will return in the future when we are in Kirkwood.
