“Eclectic Mex!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Quite a unique vibe gong on here! Decent service, however the food didn't "wow" us. Guess it just wasn't what we expected. Everything was fine, just felt that the ticket didn't match with quality. This place should be experienced for the atmosphere alone. Really funky cool.

“WOW! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

Starts with a LARGE basket of chips and a toy train delivering ur tasty chunky salsa bowls. The steak tacos and the lamb tacos meats were INCREDIBLY DELECTABLE! Truly special. Coming from so cal where Mexican food is everywhere this eatery beats most. Friendly staff. U shuld go there!

“Good Food, Unique Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

First time visit for lunch. Interesting arrival. Lots of ornamental items in front of restaurant. Dark inside and seating is somewhat private. Great spicy salsa and chips. Had Pick Up Burrito...very tasty. We want to try again. Again, atmosphere is uniquely different.

“Such a fun, tasty place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

We love Dos Taquitos! This is not your run-of-the-mill Mexican restaurant. The food, in my opinion, is pretty great - not the same ol' stuff you get at all the other "mexican" restaurants (which I also like, but this is better!). The kids love this place because it's got unique decor. There is a train that runs through the entire place near the ceiling. The inside is dark. I mean DARK. There are twinkle lights and a ton of "junk" style eclectic decor. It works. The patio is fantastic and festive. Last time there, I sat in an old salon chair - the kind with the hair dryer attached... it worked! It always feels like a little vacation when we go here, which makes it special to us. It is more expensive (slightly) than the typical Mexican places in the area, but that's fine. It's fun. It's independent (not a chain). All things we like!

“Good food and fun !”

The food was excellent and we were amazed as our salsa came rolling in on a small toy locomotive. Great place for Mexican with incredible atmosphere.
