very good presentation of entree, nice and delicious food. The place is not that big but it can accommodate large number of people. The furniture design here was unique, from tables to chairs.

So just left the Los Dos Molinos in Ahwatukee......wow, what a waste of the los dos name. Didn't actually get a chance to taste their food, but I still have a vile taste in my mouth. We sat for an hour and forty-five minutes with no food.

I went to the newly opened Ahwatukee location last Saturday with my family. All I can say is all the food we ordered are way too SALTY. I think they tried to get us to drink more. The menu is nothing to write home about. I could have gone

I moved to San Diego six years ago thinking that surely there would be decent, spicy Mexican food available. Boy, was I wrong!! After enjoying Los Dos Molinos for the prior two decades before moving, I had no idea how much I'd miss it. It is by far the best Mexican food around. It's so true... you never know what you had until it's gone!!! I miss you Los Dos:(

Mid-week night, tried the place again after a poor experience a year ago. Left hanging by the door as chaos and anger wafted off the confused and overwhelmed staff. Eventually pushed into a small back room and ignored for a while longer..finally brought menus and ordered drinks....cold bottle beers and undrinkable red wine arrived with the scowling 'manageress'..the food was mostly salty and grisly meats doused in sauce that was novelty hot without depth accompanied by reheated, mediocre rice and beans..oh why go on..miserable place to be avoided at all costs.

The best! I love the chili plates, adovada ribs and roast pork platters. Not to mention the hot as hell salsas -- all great excuses to keep the intoxicating libations flowing to extinguish the flames. Dang, I wish we had New Mexican food in LA. I really miss this place and try and make it each time I'm back in town (or in New York) to visit.

To bravef, stick to your Seatlle Moose joint for your "Mexican" food. Sure, there are places like that in Phoenix, too. You're probably looking for some white-table cloth place like Barrio Cafe that will bring you table-side guacamole and margaritas in cocktail glasses or, the other New Mexican place in town, Richardsons, for its mood lighting. btw, margaritas tend to be on the sweet side, in general. Would you really be surprised to find that a raspberry margarita or prickly pear margarita is a sweet beverage? Anyway, if you've got fire in your belly for quality New Mexican, then ignore bravef -- because Los Dos is the place!

Pros: HOT HOT HOT, radical ambiance in South PHX location, friendly management and service

Cons: The wait (sometimes)

I'm visiting from Portland and the best mexican food I have had is up at Senor Moose Cafe in Seattle. Real plates of food, no burritos, no chips when you sit down.

This place is a joke for mexican food! The drinks were large, sweet, and nothing special. The plates were plain and filled with rice and beans. How did this place ever get best of city search??? A complete sham...the ranch 99 street mexican market was so much better!

Although I have visited the location on Central, the Mesa location on Alma School north of Broadway is my favorite. It fits my favorite type of restaurant that I classify as "where the locals go." Great food, good service, appropriate atmosphere-they have it all.

Los Dos is a great place to go for authentic New Mexican Mexican food. You'd better like it spicy, though, because most of their dishes are hotter than hot. Their slogan "Some Like It Hot" is very true! The best part, though, is that it's not just hot without taste. You can choose from red or green sauce on your meal, and both are extremely tasty. They do have dishes for folks who don't like it spicy, or just order your food dry. The deserts are also wonderful--try their Tres Leches cake! Thanks to Los Dos for many years of delicious meals!

How sad to see how empty Los Dos was on a Friday night. We went for a birthday dinner, expecting a long wait and were shocked to walk right in and get a seat. After a few minutes, we realized why. The service was terrible and completely disorganized. Three different people attempted to serve us, all asking the same questions, yet nobody offering refills of drinks. We ordered dessert, but after 15 minutes were told that "they" forgot to put the order in, whoever "they" were. To make matters worse, I left my credit card there and when I called back the next day, nobody answered the phone and two days later, I have yet to have the courtesy of a return phone call. This used to be one of my favorite places, but I am not sure if I will go back. Oh, don't order the sangria. It tastes like grape juice.

Cons: god-awful service

I enjoy going to Los Dos weekly for the great salsa and food. Individually, the service is great and although they have pretty good menu variety, I typically order the same entree without even reading the menu. However, I went with a group of friends about a week ago to celebrate a birthday. Apparently they've altered the menu to read "Please NO separate checks". Here we were a group of nine or ten people with a gratuity included bill and the Los Dos staff refused to separate the check. The worst part about the situation was that it took two people from our group thirty minutes to get the staff to take our money. Yes, we had to talk them into taking our money!!!!!

Conclusion: Don't go unless it's the birthday subject's last dying wish and even in that instance, BRING CASH!!!!!!!!!

I would like to share a disappointing event that happened at a once fabulous beloved Phoenix restaurant. The worst treatment I've ever experienced in a restaurant in my life happened this past Friday at Los Dos Molinos. My fiance and I went to Los Dos for dinner to spend time with old friends. We raved about the food and told them that they would not be disappointed. Well, the only flavors we could taste in the food were red pepper and salt. It was nothing like the food used to be and we were both embarrassed that we had spoken so highly of the restaurant. We ate anyway and each had 2 drinks. Our waiters seemed okay, not nice and not mean. BUT THEN? after we paid our bill, we were finishing up our drinks and chatting about the Christmas holiday. MAYBE 5 minutes after paying, one of the staff rushed to our table and asked us to leave because people were waiting on a table. He did not ask politely and he had a scowl on his face. He flat out asked if we would leave. Oh, let me add that we had just left a 25% tip on a bill that was over $100. We were completely shocked. Our jaws dropped. Had he asked us nicely we would have politely obliged. However, because of his rudeness, I decided to report the mistreatment to a young woman who was a so-called owner. She rudely explained to me that she had told her staff to tell us to leave. She is by far the nastiest ?hostess? I?ve ever been in contact with. I was both shocked and hurt at the rudeness of the owner and her staff. A once legendary respected establishment is now putting their customers on an assembly line out the door. What ever happened to being able to enjoy a nice dinner and a couple of drinks? How sad. Please save yourself the hassle and don?t waste your money on the mediocre food and grossly rude staff.

Six of us went to Los Dos Molino's last night. This has been a favorite of all but one of ours for years - one was in town visiting and had never been. We raved about it the whole way down there. We told him how super spicy everything was and how great the food is. We were all shocked at how mild the salsas were - I even asked about it, three of us ordered the roasted pork special with green chili (waiter recommended). Everyone's food was so salty that none of us finished our food and no one took home their leftovers. We ordered one piece of tres leches cake to split because they are known for it. It came out with a birthday candle on it for me so they passed it down to me and I saw 3 big green circles on it. IT WAS MOLD!!!! We called the waiter over and showed it to him and he said, "that's not good" and said he'd bring something else. I said, "No, I don't want anything else to eat". I called him over afterwards and told him how totally disappointed we were from start to finish and how we'd raved about the place all the way over, etc., etc. and how embarrassed we were bringing someone...blah blah blah. He apologized and we got our bill which included an 18% gratuity. He didn't even take the moldy cake off the bill!!!! We were so disgusted we didn't even tell him. We just paid and left. We all agreed that we'd never go back again!!! Cross that one off of my "favorites" list.

you don't go to Los Dos to be pampered by waitresses or to marvel at the decor - you go for great mexican food and a magarita. you won't be disappointed. if you like hot food, ask for some recommedations - but expect the magaritas to go down faster and assign a designated driver! one of our favorite places in phoenix.

Just to let people know..the horribly rude woman is still around. I was insulted by her 3 months ago when we first moved to the area and Los Dos seemed to be the most popular place around Undaunted we tried it this week to give them a second chance. The staff was thin on the ground and frantic, so the growling hosttess decided to help out by taking drink orders and throwing menus at people. I asked if they served agua fresca drinks ( not the most unusual request in a mexican place ) and the response was "'aqua what!.. I don't know what you are saying, I'll come back when you can make up your mind".....never to appear again. We waited another 5-10 minutes and walked. Our first experience was average food and a greeting so rude I truly wasn't sure if it was some kind of 'fawlty towers' type comedy angle. Naw...they are just plain ole' bad mannered.

One of if not my favorite Mexican restaurants in Phoenix. I love the Carnitas. The pork is soft and very tasty. Their salsa is also good and can be spiced up as well if you like. They don't offer non-spicy salsa.

The decor of the restaurant is awesome as well. And be sure to try a margarita while you are there.

I've owned and operated many successful mexican restaurants & cantinas in California and Texas, where there is both true competition and educated diners/patrons. "Los Dos" is "Los Zeros" in my opinion. The food is average at best, (though the adovada is OK). The location is ridiculous and is only compounded by the rude service and the obnoxious wench pretending to play "hostess". I've heard more negative commentary about this "Soup Nazi" personality throughout the city than any restaurant should be allowed. For the considerable drive this restaurant offers to most patrons, the very least you should expect is civility from the staff. What a joke. Save your money.

Each dish at Los Dos is made with loving care. You can see it in the presentation and taste it with each bite. What makes Los Dos stand out from the rest of the pack is their unique use of spices in their sauces and salsas. The sauces are what gives the dishes their flavorful kick. If you don't like spicy, be sure and tell the wait staff.

If you go during peak hours, a wait is inevitable. Relax with a frozen lime margarita and get your taste buds ready for this firey and delectable fare.

This is the perfect "hole in the wall" family-run restaurant. The food is incredible and well worth dealing with spotty service. Everything tastes fresh and homemade. Fair warning for those not accustomed to New Mexico-style chile and salsas: these are very spicy and full of flavor. If you have kids or a large group, you can't go wrong.

The food here is very spicy & super hot (unless you request otherwise), yet it is extremely flavorful. The margaritas are in what could be used as a giant fish bowl. The two spot that you will find the most fun are the south Phoenix location on Central & the original location in Springerville, AZ. Springerville is in the middle of northeast nowhere Arizona close to Showlow, AZ. This is a family owned & operated restaurant & everything they offer, aside from the liquor, is hand made freshly every day.

As a former Phoenix resident, I am amazed at the negative comments regarding this establishment. Whenever I am in Phoenix, I make sure to get my Los Dos fix. The location is historic, the staff is polite (duh...it helps if you are polite to them!) and the "wait" is part of the experience. Perhaps they, occasionally, close early because they've run out of their freshly prepared items. Try to stop and think before you criticize. If you want a never-ending supply of mass produced food, go to Ch*vy's. Check your egos at the door, grab a pitcher of margaritas and quit whining!

My wife and I went to the one on Alma School Road for lunch on sat. sep. 3.
Service was below average at best.
The "food", -$9.50 for two empty taco shells-, went untouched back to the kitchen.
My burro was generic and tiny.
For those prices the food should be tasty and plentyful. It was the opposite.
Mild food is not the only thing they cant prepare here...

Los Dos Molinos is one of the greatest attractions of the desert. We first found this place when we came to visit AZ and see the surroundings. My husband and I, both Southern Louisiana natives, frequent this place for the HOT and SPICY cuisine! There has never been a delay in our order, nor is the staff rude in any way. This place is a must see for all of our visitors and friends. This is a definite culinary treasure that we will miss when we leave AZ.

Anytime my family or friends come to town, I always take them to this local Mexican food restaurant. The food is authentic and very tasty. Beware if you have a weak stomach as the food is also incredibly spicy. Get there early because it gets crowded fast, and they don't take reservations. Try the pot roast or the shrimp quesadillas.

PROS:

Anytime my family or friends come to town, I always take them to this local Mexican food restaurant. The food is authentic and very tasty. Beware if you have a weak stomach as the food is also incredibly spicy. Get there early because it gets crowded fast, and they don't take reservations. Try the pot roast or the shrimp quesadillas.

PROS:
CONS: Be aware, they don't take reservations.

Los Dos Molinos is a great Mexican restaurant! My husband and I have been enjoying Los Dos Molinos for over ten years and haven't had a negative experience. Yes, the owner, is often cranky but then she has to deal with self-appointed Mexican food experts who think PF Chang's is genuine Asian food.
Fresh chips and salsa are quickly replenished as you wait for dinner. The food is flavorful and yes, hot. One weakness is that they don't serve appetizers on the patio while you wait. Speaking of waiting, the best way to experience Los Dos is to go with a group of friends. The wait can be as long as three hours, so spend that time wisely by having a great time with your favorite pals! And yes, the kick-ass margs are served on the patio while you wait!

I have lived here for ten years and have eaten all over az. My husband and I always have to have a los dos fix. To all of you that gave bad reviews-yes, you have to wait- much like any other restaurant in Phoenix with great food, it is privately owned so they can make their own hours and close if they want to at any time, it is NOT a 5 star restaurant but that is part of its charm, I personally have never not once had a service issue and everyone has always been extremely friendly. Perhaps you belong in Snottsdale with the other food and beverage snobs. To everyone else, this is the place to go in Phoenix!

I grew up in Phoenix -- and my family still resides there. I have dined in Mexican resturaunts all my life. There is none better than Los Dos Molinos. Now I live outside Nashville. Whenever flying back into Phoenix, my travel schedule is arranged so I can arrive at "Sky Harbor" and go directly to Los Dos before anything else. My return flight is booked to allow me to dine there before heading back to the airport. A trip to Phoenix is incomplete without a meal at Los Dos!

Pros: Great food , Great service, Great drinks

The crowds of people who flock to Los Dos Molinos aren't wrong. From the pitcher of "kick ass" margaritas to the braised beef ribs, the food and drink is authentic New Mex. Not everything is firey hot. The tostada, chicken taco, quesadillas and some other wonderful items are mild. But if you want heat, they will bring it. The atmosphere is festive and the service is efficient and accurate. Get there early or be prepared to wait for a very long time. The gate to the courtyard opens at 5:00 pm go early and often.

Awful is the only word that comes to mind.
I ordered red posole, they brought white posole. I informed them and they threw a spoon of red gunk in it!! It now tasted horrible and was cold! I did't eat it and told the waiter, he merely said "I can't do anything about it". I looked at him and he said " I can get the owner, if you want". After 20 minutes waiting, he passed by and said "did you want me to get the owner?" I informed him that neither of the margarita's ordered were good and were not drank. The strawberry was a lump of syrup. You could barely sip it through a straw! The plain one tasted like some cheap tequilla and left a bitter aftertaste.
I was told to call because the owner was to busy. I tried to call she still couldn't be reached!

Cons: , bad margaritas, awful food

The problem with Los Dos is that they seem to get off by having the spiciest food in town, regardless of flavor. If you make a mistake and taste the wrong thing it will ruin your meal. I do not appreciate heat for heat's sake. I don't mind perspiring because a dish is spicy, however, I do mind suffering. Make no mistake, I like spicy food, this isn't just spicy, it's obnoxious.

Certainly you have to be able to take the heat, but if you can, then this is quite simply the best Mexican food in Phoenix. My family and I have been going since the mid 80s when they were working out of an old Der Wienerschnitzel building. I saw someone complain about the hostess. Sounds like someone from Scottsdale finding out they aren't the center of the universe. Los Dos is hopping on the weekends, be willing to wait and enjoy awesome Margs, your patience will be rewarded. My favorite dish is the Green Chile plate.

Out of all the mexican food restaurants I've eaten at, this is by far my favorite and the best in my opinion. I've never left disappointed with food or service. My usual - Chimichanga Adobada w/ red sauce on top. And of course a Margarita (frozen) on the side. I normally prefer on the rocks but here I like the frozen better.

Los Dos has delicious food and the fire keeps me coming back. I love the kick a$$ margaritas and their shrimp dish is out of this world.

I go out to eat to enjoy myself, not to have my nose wiped by the staff.

It's a popular restaurant and is always busy every time I go. I make a point of getting there right at 5:00 so I don't have a long wait. And even if I do, I sit out on the patio, have a margarita, and RELAX.

If you want to wait until 8:00 to get there, then you're SOL because a lot of other people are in line ahead of you.

los dos molinos has a mixture of the spiciest mexican and the harshest margaritas. the times that i have been, i haven't minded waiting up to three hours for a seat, because of the great patios and great margaritas.

This place is horrible! I cant say much for food because we never made it in the door! The woman at the door was so rude. She was no help at all. She wouldnt even answer simple questions such as 'is there a bar to wait at.' I dont care if this place gets good reviews, I will never drive 45 minutes to be treated that rudely again nor will I recommend this place to anyone.

These People just dont understand customer service. They advertise that they are open until 9 on friday nights. I went there one friday at aproximatly 8:15 and they were closed. Another friday I was concerned that they might close early, so I called to confirm the hours. Their voice mail stated that they would be open until 9. However, when I arrived at 7:58 thay told me they were closing at 8, I looked at my watch and told them that it was not yet 8. I was told that it didnt matter because "we are closed". At 8-10 other couples were also turned away. Due to the lack of respect for their customers, I will never return. Most customers travel more than 30 minutes to eat at this establishment. Will anyone travel just to be turned away at times that they advertise that thay are open? I will not.

For atmosphere, you can't beat this southside location of Los Dos Molinos, which was formerly the home of cowboy star Tom Mix. The place offers authentic New Mexican cuisine---a rarity in this neighbor state---which ranges in flavor from…
