A group went here for lunch and ordered various dishes. I choose the soup and salad from the lunch menu. Salad was nice size and good but the Black Bean soup was the based of the chicken tortilla soup with black beans added. Very disappointing and bland tasting. Others ordered burrito, taco salad (which was crammed with ground beef) and... More

I've been here numerous times and each time the service has been prompt and curteous. Tonight however was a different story. They hired all new people and it took us 10 minutes to get burnt stale chips. The entrees are still perfect. Don't hire new people in the kitchen...

We drive 25 miles just to eat Mexican here. It's traditional American-Mexican food. Everything I've had here is really good. They give you a mild salsa and a hot salsa. The hot salsa is exceptional. They have a friendly staff. Clean restaurant. Highly recommend.

One of my favorite Mexican places to eat. The staff is friendly and on Tuesdays they have a wing special on Thursdays

The menu has a better selection than the usual Mexican place.... More original items and less mix and match six different items all sort of ways ....The carbon tacos I had were very good.. steak was not over cooked and the fresh salsa was excellent... Service was attentive and fast.... A keeper in my food play book for Athens...

I visited on a Monday night around six thirty. Seated quickly and waitress was there promptly. I ordered items not on menu with no problems. Service was excellent and food was good. Would return again when in Athens.

When you walk in, there's no way for you to know how good the food is. But, once you sit down and take a look at the menu you will see a nice variety of south of the border offerings. All of the usual menu items are there and, of course, taco salad. Your server starts you with taco chips... More

My friend and I went to Dos Palmas on a Sunday afternoon about three PM and there were quite a few people eating. The food was tasty and hot. Guacamole was fresh and not out of a can. The male server was right there if we needed anything, but not in your face. If I lived in Athens I would... More
