Light airy, attractive restaurant. Service was good, food prepared very quickly-less than 5 minutes' wait..the downside-no steak for burritos, tacos, anything. Ground beef and unseasoned chicken for all dishes. I inquired about having the cheese and sour cream made in my burrito rather than on top and was told that could not be done. Only cheese and lettuce on tacos-no... More

This is your typical Mexican restaurant. All the same dishes as every other Mexican place. However, the prices were very reasonable, the service was good, and there was a nice atmosphere for both families and guys after work.

Most people don't know but Dos Amigos on the strip is owned and operated by the son of the owner of El Charco Azul. So you'll experience a lot of the same eager friendly service and great tasting food from both.

We have eaten here on a few occasions and have found the food to not be over spicy (at least our choices) and the amount of food to be substantial! Delicious margaritas!! Open are for dining but spacy and roomy that you do not feel crowded.

We stopped here during our stay in Osage Beach. They were understaffed and it took a while to be seated and waited on. Food was okay, nothing special. Vegetarian options available. The waiter didn't understand us and he was hard to understand which resulted in one of our orders being wrong. Don't have high expectations if stopping here.

Very dirty, especially the restrooms. Good wasn't bad but the cleanliness made you wonder what the conditions in the kitchen might be like.

The service was great. The menu was extensive; lots of choices, but the food lacked flavor. I will not be returning.
