It was a hot, sticky day and I was feeling the need for refreshment and genuine Hispanic cuisine. My husband and I ventured to Dos Bros, the newest Mexican restaurant in town, to check out the menu and service.
Dos Bros is convenient to many, located on West 7th Street and just a few miles from Eagle Way Bypass. The interior was surprisingly bright and clean with an open floor plan. Booths lined the walls with several tables comfortably set around the restaurant.
We were quickly greeted by a friendly young man and offered a large booth. Chips, salsa, and a mysterious ranch dip were immediately brought to the table while drink orders were taken. We were left to dig into this delicious, creamy dip that accompanied their salsa perfectly.
At first glance, the menu seemed to be fairly similar to other menus I’d seen in local Mexican restaurants. However, upon further questioning, I discovered their homemade flour and corn tortillas are quite the hit. They make these in-store from scratch each day and there was a delicious difference.
I decided to try the Tacos Al Pastor — a beautiful union of grilled onion, pineapple and marinated pork served on corn tortillas with a zesty tomatillo sauce, rice and beans. I was impressed by the fresh ingredients and well-plated meal. The portions were plentiful and the service, flawless. Our drinks stayed filled and the server made several visits to our table to ensure our satisfaction with the food.
There were a lot of great touches to Dos Bros that left me wanting more. I
really enjoyed the margarita loaded with fresh lime, the ranch dip that I could have eaten on anything and the tomatillo sauce with the perfect amount of heat and a hint of sweetness. My husband was pleased with the bill and a to-go box for lunch. We could not have asked a more accommodating and pleasant experience with the team at Dos Bros.
