We love this place! Always great food with fast and friendly service. Try the chicken , steak and shrimp fajitas they are wonderful. If you like guacamole they have the best.

The choices are good, as is the service. We have dined at this location several times. This was my favorite place to go when they made their tamales in house. It seems that they no longer do tgat. The food is served hot and with a smile. Still one of the better restaurants in the area, for Mexican food.

Very attentive to the groups's needs--one person in our party didn't realize there were onions in her tacos, so asked to be taken out, only had to wait briefly and the server was so gracious about it. Even the manager came to make sure she was happy, and technically it was her own fault! Food was delicious and perfectly cooked!... More

We had lunch, included rice, beans, chili rellano, taco, gauc side all for less than $6.00. Food is served fresh and hot. The... More

A solid Mexican find, the Arroz con Pollo and burritos were fantastic, even for a picky Californian. Service was terrific and food was a great value. On our regular rotation list and definitely recommend!

Dos Reales has served the Champaign-Urbana area as an outstanding Mexican Restaurant for many years. It seems like we have an abundance of Mexican Restaurants in the Champaign-Urbana area now that we did not have years ago when Dos Reales opened it's doors. When I think of or when I want a great Mexican lunch or dinner I first think... More

We live in southern Illinois where we have a few Mexican restaurants to choose from. However, the service isn't always the best. We found this to be the opposite of Dos Reales! Everybody was super friendly, from the hostess to the waiter. My husband got a fajita chimichanga and it was huge! My nachos supreme were big as well. Everything... More

I'll tell you what, I have never seen faster-walking, harder working wait staff. They were amazing! The food was good, quick, and the portions were large. Definitely coming back!
