Dos Caminos (especially this one in the Meatpacking District) gets quite a bad rep on Yelp, but my experience here was fantastic. Being from California (and having gone to school in Arizona) my family and I were craving some good authentic Mexican food. I've struggled to find good semi-hole-in-the-wall style Mexican food that I love here in the city. I wouldn't say Dos Caminos was as good as hour-from-the-border Mexican food nor the best Mexican food in the city, but it did remind me of home.


My mom and I are vegan and they had plenty of options available that could easily be made vegan. If you check in on Yelp, you get a free drink! Which was a extra large shot of their frozen prickly pear margarita. Though it is a frozen pretty drink, those things are strong. But very very good! I also had a spicy margarita.


The guac was fresh and delicious, as were the drinks and the food. I didn't even realize this was a chain until I saw another in Times Square.


Our server was so helpful and nice, he even brought out another shot for me when I accidentally spilled mine (even though it was almost empty) and one for my dad when he jokingly said he spilled his too. My family really enjoyed themselves here and we plan on coming back!

Dos Caminos in the hip and trendy Meat Packing district doesn’t fail to impress. The beautiful two level brick building is very attractive with lots of seats outside for alfresco dining. Be sure to reserve ahead as this location is very popular, especially for brunch on the weekends. Start with some guacamole and chips and the jalapeno corn bread, which are both out of this world. The brunch menu offers Mexican French toast, omelets, salads, and much more. If you are looking for a kicked-up brunch experience, get the bottomless boozy brunch for eighteen dollars. Two hours of unlimited brunch cocktails is the real way to do brunch.

Though this location is a lot smaller than others (it's in a weirdly shaped building, which is hard to work around), this place is great! The waitress we had was helpful and because of the long wait, she gave us free drinks. Like the other locations, has great food and good drinks. The outdoor seating is also nice since it's located right in the heart of the Meatpacking district. Good to go to with a date or with a big group of friends.

Is Dos Caminos the best Mexican food in NYC? No. But this particular location does have some added perks that make it a good place to stop for some food and drinks while you're in the Meatpacking area. 


First off, they have an all you can drink special (1.5 hour time limit) for Saturday brunch that is totally worth it if you're having at least 2 drinks. It's basically the same cost. If you get 3 or more, it becomes an even better deal! It includes mimosas, margaritas, beer, and bloody marys - a great selection. 


In terms of the food, I've tried the guacamole, chorizo fundido, tacos, shrimp quesadilla, the Dos Caminos rancheros, and churros. As you can see, I've been there multiple times. It's a great spot for big groups as all of the locations have a ton of space. In terms of the food, everything is about a 3 on a 1 to 5 scale, but the service is great, prompt, and friendly. 


Overall, a great place if you have a large group or want to stop in for a break. All locations are in popular areas (Meatpacking, Time's Square, etc.), so they're also great for tourist destinations.

The margaritas are strong, the service is friendly enough and they keep things moving. The good is good without blowing your socks off. Definitely worth considering if you have a big group dinner to plan.

I use to work in Soho and this was one of my after work drink spots because as an Arizona girl by birth, I have a true love of Prickly Pear! They have the best prickly pear margarita's ever and so when I am in town I like to make a pit stop here. This was my first time being at this location, although it felt very much like a chain in this location, the drinks were still as I remembered them and the food was pretty good. I have the brussel sprouts and the flauta's. They weren't off the charts but they were good and I was happy.

Very mixed feelings about this place. The food is great, standard delicious Mexican food. Love the outdoor patio but they really need more seating. Indoors is totally dark and too wood-ed - please look at El Vez for a well-done, vibrant interior Mexican eating experience. Obviously meatpacking is sort of a scene so people want to sit outside but the wait is forever - the hostesses never know how long it's going to take and consistently seat people out of order. With all of that being said, when you're outside and its sunny, its amazing. I went most recently for brunch and got the banana french toast and it was to dieeee for. Perfectly crunchy and soft, caramelized bananas. YUM.
