Adrian Mitchell

This place is always great. Wonderful service and staff. The food is always good and it is never terribly busy. The price is good and not too expensive. Great atmosphere.

Dianne Bailey

The food was very bland, all you could taste is the tortilla. The salsa had a bite to it but not much flavor. Sorry guys I won't be back. Very disappointed

Best Mexican food Nice waitress From Brazil

Kyle Chipera

Great place! Food is very good and margaritas are top notch! Especially on Tuesday and Thursday when they have 2 for 1 jumbos! Have any flavor of margaritas you could think of.

Nina simpson


Mark Iehl

The guacamole is delicious.

steven bakker

Great service! Great food and drinks! My favorite Mexican place!

Sanduni Silva

The food is okay. I wasn't a big fan of the white cheese. The outdoor area is pretty nice for a group.

Randy C. Klug

Great food, great service. The orders came out quick too.

Alex Larson

Great Thursday deals!

Troy Lovell

Food was good, but seems more commercialized than I prefer. Also it seems like a bar more than it does a restaurant.

Jena Billings

It's good every single time. One of our favorites in the cedar valley.

Dj Brooks

Best Mexican food in Iowa hands down! The servers were amazing, and so was the food and drinks! Highly recommend!

Stephanie Holding

Amazing service and amazing food. So glad we found this place

Josh Freeland

Excellent great food,nice employees

Harley Wildes

Great food and very friendly people .

Benjamin McClintock

Queso is the best I've had in a long time. Biggest burritos I've found anywhere.

zoe Faaberg

Great authentic Mexican food with wonderful service

Tammi Degener

Food was good and waitress was friendly and kept our drinks full

Shelby Welsch

Very tasty food and the queso blanco is one of the best you can find in Cedar Falls, but the service is inconsistent and the margaritas are barely blended and super sugary. Also, Thursday night is karaoke night, so if you are trying to have a nice family dinner, I would steer clear of Amigos on Thursdays because it gets incredibly LOUD.

Jen Klammer

Fast service-wonderful sever-delicious meal!! Will go again!!

deana brown

I will not support a business who fires employees for not coming in during a call in when they weren't scheduled in the first place. That is horrible management and discrimination. Also they skim off credit cards receipts never match what i order then i have to fight with the bank to get it resolved. NEVER AGAIN.

G. W.

Food was excellent, staff was very friendly and service was great.

Jamie Thompson

Very good food. I look forward to trying everything on the menu. Staff was friendly and efficient. I will be going back

Jay Liu Bondurant

Great food, great service, best in the area. Love this place! Highly recommend! Anything I've gotten on the menu is awesome.

Ishan Patel

Food is alright here. They have a great range of food options, however, they don't all taste the best. Went here this week and didn't feel good after the meal.

Nora Kischer-Browne

Friendly service, great food, only thing I can complain about is that the decor is a bit dated :)

Jody Mullinix

I love going to Amigos have always had great service and food, generally go 1-2 times a week. Unfortunately went there last night and was very disappointed with the server we had. Not only did he seem very preoccupied throughout the ordering process when we wanted to order another drink and tried to locate him we learned he had left for the evening. I will still give the place a 5 star and hope that I have a better experience the next time I go.

Lindsey Eibey

We've been coming here for years and it is always DELICIOUS and the staff is so welcoming!

Raye S.

The service was absolutely friendly, the atmosphere was clean, air conditioned, and just overall a great place to be!

Martha Torvik

Nice casual atmosphere.

Mark Reimer

Friendly, attentive service to go along with delicious food. We need you to open a restaurant in Winnipeg, Manitoba! if you ever come to Manitoba to explore the options, mi casa es tu casa!

Cynthia Gitta

The new menus are great and the food delicious. One of the best for Mexican fare. There was no music playing so the ambience was not as good as usual. We walked away full and satisfied.

christopher hill

Food not hot with freshness as of it was already prepared but they do give you a lot of food. The tortillas are definitely not made in the restaurant.... I’m from Texas & this place is a 3 compared to our Latin food ! Also took my leftovers home in a to-go box the restaurant provided me with & they’re definitely not microwavable they have the kind that melts when you heat them up and gives you cancer

Ellie Primmer-Tamayo

A wonderful place to eat

Jamie Stien

Great place for Mexican food! Good prices...great atmosphere (bar and grill style). Still under renovations, but still open regardless! Good on the owners to work around that! Very impressed!

Bill Nolte

Fast service, great drinks and classic food. Everything you would want here. Have been going here for years and while they have made some building upgrades in the last few years, it has still been the same great experience each time I have been there. Hopefully you can get a chance to enjoy it much as I have.

Jeffrey Svarverud

Good food. Thursday night is karaoke night and two for one margaritas. The rest of the week this is a nice place to relax and enjoy a good meal.

Jon Laity

Amazing food everytime we go!!

john mcculley

Great food

Michael West

Delicious and great service

Jon Bronemann Home Inspections, LLC

Great lunch special. Very courteous staff. The cheese sauce alone is addicting.

Brian Holmlund

Great Chili Verde, lunch special was cheap and plenty of delicious food

Kelli Dix

Great food! Live music, but he didn't need a microphone. Otherwise, he was great singer.

Renee Murray

What I ordered was not what I got. I ordered a breakfast burrito with potatoes, scrambled eggs and chorizo. It was ground hamburger, no eggs and potatoes that were so undercooked you couldn't eat them. I called and was told that my order was what I ordered. Asked if they would send me what I really ordered. I was told No. That when I came in they would take 10% off my next purchase. Then she proceeded to tell me what chorizo was. My mistake was thinking they were as good as Amigos in Waterloo. They have amazing food! Cedar Falls....NO!

Brandon Carpenter

Best place to get Mexican food in the Cedar Valley! Portion sizes are large, the food is high quality, and the service is exceptional.

Al Sundt

Very good food and friendly service.

Rhiannon Stueve

The floor was sticky, but food was amazing.

Rachel Fettkether

I LOVE AMIGOS! Margaritas are the best, queso is the best, and their tacos and fajitas are AMAZING! I also really like the staff there they are super friendly and make sure your happy. Fast service as well!

Michael Barrett

Great food, great service, great margaritas. I have been with big work groups a few times and they are very accomodating.

Jenn Alitz

Excellent Mexican restaurant staff and waiter was prompt helpful polite welcoming environment went over and above for service! Food was fantastic great place!

Jill Belina

The beans were runny, there were potatoes, and carrots in the beans. The building is falling a part. The candy in the lobby was full of very of colored old candies. They service was good. There was one other table in the restaurant and still our drinks were often empty. The price is normal 6 to 16 dollars. The casino cheese dip was tasty but the chips were stale. We will not go back..

Shelby Williams

Fantastic street tacos. Loud atmosphere, at least in on a Thursday night. Quick service, plenty of room for large groups. Definitely going back!

Jake Cash

Came at 1:15 PM on a saturday and we waited about 15 minutes just to get our drinks. We then waited another 15 minutes to get our order taken. After we ordered, a family of 3 came in and sat down in the booth next to us. They receieved their food before us and they didn’t even arrive until 30 minutes after we had already been there. We didn’t receieve our food until exactly 2:30 pm. Very disappointed with the service today. Cannot seem to understand why our food took so long when there were only five tables in the store.

Mitch Evans

It was and always is the greatest food, service and atmosphere!

Jason Mathern

Great place to eat with a family. Great food and amazing service. Definitely our pick of choices for Mexican food in the area!

Debra Kroll

I would say this restaurant is more geared towards College age. Their chips and salsa were good, margaritas not so much. Careful in the women's bathroom, tile in front of sink is pulled up and is a definite hazard. Servers were friendly.

Spencer Navara

Gave a Tequila shot to my friend for her birthday!

Saunya Knorr

Great atmosphere, friendly staff. Loved they have a to go menu available for walk in orders.

Jorge Marquez

Friendly people, good music and amazing food.

Pl Boyd

Ok, food, use to be better under old management!!

A.E. Fritch

Always great food. Lunch special hit the spot & it's plenty of food.

J Stiers

Great food and service

Lanette Martin

The food was good but our waiter took forever to come and take our order.

Scott Spencer

Food is very close to the real stuff you get in Mexico. It's delicious!

Kevin Konrad

Excellent food

Alice Hearn

Awesome food, wonderful employees, great environment. Celebrate with friends or family- they can accommodate either way.

Kevin McRae

This restaurant is really killing it right now. Food is fresh, served fast and tastes amazing. We've had some poor experiences in the past but at this time, nobody does Mexican cuisine with good service and attention to detail better than Amigos.


Decent food. Fairly attentive service during non-peak hours. Prefer the Waterloo location. Issue redeeming coupon due to not having a manager working at the time.

Alex Furnald

Amazing food and service definitely would recommend 10/10

Lisa Offerman

Awesome. Great food and great service!

Ryan Anderson

Just not a fan of the food. There’s a lot better Mexican food places in town.

Laura Mullis

It was okay, but not for $40 when the chips were stale, salsa didn't have much flavor, steak in the fajitas tasted like a salt block and as did the chicken. The "refried" beans were runny and the rice was kinda old. I wouldn't go to it again personally. And Google recommended this place as kid friendly, I'm not sure about the day time but at night it's not.

Grace Rogers

Excellent queso and margaritas that actually have alcohol in them!

Shawn Blanchard

Service was great. Food was very good. In and out in 30 minutes.

Susan Walker

This is the best Mexican food I have ever had! Staff are friendly and attentive. A must try for anyone who loves Mexican food!

De Riggle

First time here. My son had The Panther. It was HUGE. He'll get 3 meals out of it. I had Steak Taco Salad. It was good and had a lot of meat in it. The waitress was nice and came to out table often. The reason for not giving 5 stars was the place is run down. The womens batheroom was a mess with a hole in the wall and wall paper hanging down.

Forrester S

We had chicken nachos and a seafood enchillada for lunch. This place has authentic and fantastic food. Thr salas is always freshly made in house. Nef, our waiter was extremely attentive. A must go to.

Frankie McGlaughlin

Food was amazing, service sucked

Jim Dufek

Great food, portion size was large. Could feed a couple people on the panther burrito.

Michele Rutledge

Love it.

Brianna Roth

Great atmosphere! Friendly service!

Queen C

Food was okay. Ill stick to cooking at home

Terry Taylor

Love their chicken fajitas!!

Justine Lueders

Authentic food, fast service, and friendly staff. Best Mexican food in Cedar Falls. On Mondays they have $1 tacos (hard or soft, beef or chicken)

Danica Wilcox

Great food & service everytime!

Shelley Hulsing

Awesome food and stellar service!!

Josh Schriever

I've been going to Amigos for a few years now, and the food has always been amazing. Some of my favorite dishes are chipotle shrimp and shrimp popeye. My complaint used to be that the drinks were not on par with the food, because they used to make nothing but cheap margaritas. However, they've recently added a whole new cocktail menu, and now I can say I love everything about Amigos. I recommend the Paloma!

Michael Anderson

Food was pretty good but nothing special. Big selection and great service.

Michael Sellz

The server needs to say something when he's putting a scalding hot plate in front of you. It was in front of me; I didn't know he was setting it down and he didn't say anything, so I took it and burned my finger. No apology from the manager, just indifference. The food was nothing special The wait staff lady was nice. No need to come back here!

Mike Nus

The quality has gone downhill a lot in the last few years. This used to be the place for Mexican food. Now it's just ok. The facility looks run down. The quality of the food is good but not great anymore. The wait staff are hit and miss. Overall it's ok. Make Amigos great again.

Jim Allison

Quick lunches, good prices, friendly staff

Tony Wright

Good food, good service

Thomas Miller

The past 5 times I ate there everything was great, the food, the people, the atmosphere, always love going back to eat there.

Lynda Nelson

Too much tomato topping for me.

Melissa Colby

Excellent service and food.

Abby Roling

Everyone was so nice at Amigos. The owner was so kind to me, the food was excellent, and even though they were so busy they managed to keep everyone happy!

Will Frost

I like this place a lot. It can get very busy so be prepared for that. Otherwise, the food is delicious and they have good drinks. Not crazy expensive but also not dive restaurant prices. I definitely look forward to visiting again.

Ryan McDermott

This is a high energy place to eat (especially on Thursdays when they've got 2 for 1 jumbo margs and karaoke) The staff is friendly and the food is great.

Chris Miller

Great Mexican food at decent prices. Stopped by here while on a cross country road trip and was pleasantly surprised.

MaximumRyu Ryu

Had a great time and the food was amazing. The had a great time and the food was amazing. The server was amazing. And the manager is a funny guy.

Dezi Johnson

The salted rim of the beer glass was a nice touch. The table salsa was lacking kick but I'm a spicy freak. The cheese enchilada was disappointing as I'm pretty sure it was just Monterrey jack cheese, instead of queso fresco which would've been amazing. The seafood enchiladas were tasty and I'll get them again. The restaurant is a bit run down but I have no problem coming back again.

Laura Christensen

Wasn't crazy about potatoes and carrots in my chimichanga and the queso was pretty watery

Jason Adams

Good specials. Just stay away from the tower margaritas, all mix, little tequila

Rebecca Aneweer

Excellent Rolled Steak Quesadillas

Amwanakickbooty Now

Nice place good food

Jennifer deNeui

Great food and drinks!! It was really busy but still got our food fairly quick and it was delicious!

Erica Fortier

Love the queso. Service wasn't great though

phil Van Syoc

Late to the party. Only discovered Amigos 4 months ago but in that time I've ordered from then over 20 times so that says all you needed to know about my opinion of the flavor. Always delivery which has always been timely so I can't comment on decor or wait service. Love this food.

Hilda Ostby

Great food, reasonable prices, good service and $2 margaritas Mondays and Thursdays! Note: Drink specials have changed, but we still love this place. The food is fresh and their salsa and queso are the best!

Vionne Eichenberger

One of my top favorites. 1-19-2018 service wasn't so great today. But the food is fantastic.

Ed Gruenwald

Beef and chorizo tacos were very good. The service was so-so. Menu had a good selection of items. I took one star off because they play music outside and the speaker is at the main entrance so it gets annoying loud as you enter. I don't know why, but this bothered me.

Amber Thompson

Good marg deals. Friendly wait staff. place is packed Thursday nights and there's normally a wait anytime after 6 unless you call again.

Alexis Smith

I used to come here all the time with my friends on Thursday's but last time I went, one of my friends got $40 taken out of her bank account even though her tab was like $9. Super unprofessional and sadly won't be going back.

Ajit Patel

We are from out of town. This is the celebration restaurant for our family. But this time they didn't perform well. We had lots of problems. The kids foods got delivered last, drinks never came, 3 orders had issues. The answer the manager gave was we were busy. From a customer service point of view, thats a bad answer and not acceptable. They didn't seem to want to own the mistake. The manager did compensate us for the issues but money is not always the answer. A simple ownership of the problem would've sufficed.


There is so much food here that if you want to have a party but cant find a place come here. I went there and dint know what to expect so, I got a burrito grande and it was huge. It's a good place for partys and for lots of food!

Rico Sandoval

Gd_ Service

Darin R

Best Mexican in Central MN

Craig Fairbanks

Good authentic Mexican food. Great value large portions reasonable price. Good service fast and take out is awesome too.

Bob Heide

Food is mediocre and had to ask multiple times to refill me drink

Colleen Matos

It’s okay - cheap food and cheap margaritas. It’s usually crowded and very noisy any Thursday, Friday, or Saturday night. Great spot for college kids and a short drive from the UNI campus.

Glenna Whiteman

Great Friendly service and excellent food! Don't forget to go on Thursday's for Karaoke!


Love their margaritas and salsa! Food is good and never takes to long.

Randy Husted

Decent food. Great atmosphere

Elias Riley

Wanted to give 4 stars but the food was delicious, prices were reasonable, staff was excellent and food came out very quickly. Nothing negative at all.

Kaylee Sires

Consistantly delicious!

M Klaas

Hands down the best Mexican restaurant in the Cedar Valley. Their cheese sauce and salsa are bomb and they have 99 cent tacos on Mondays... Which are the best tacos ever. Love their Pick 2! You will never leave hungry!

kerrie Granahan

My wife an I just ate there an it was the best mexican food an restaurant we have experienced so far. The amount of food an the way it tastes was way better than expected. Their margaritas are amazing an the service was better than we have ever experienced. I will be coming back an recommend everyone to come an try this food an drinks. You have made two customers for life. Thank you

Karen K

HUGE servings! Fairly spicy. Very nice people!

pattie wymore

Terrible I tripped going up the step that did not have a light so I had to go to the hospitol to see if there was anything wrong with my knee that I had replaced in June.Luckly it was only bruised and Dr said it will be sore for about a week. You need lights or somethi g to show people at night where the steps is not just a note on FLOOR AND WALL that we normally to not look at. I will not be coming back.The employee asked I was ok but NO further action was taken. Iam very upset and may talk to my lawyer.Thank you.

Lee I

I got the veggie taco salad and it was sooo good. I was expecting just fajita type of veggies but there is broccoli and potatoes in it.... honestly it was soo delicious! Their guac doesnt have tomatoes in it, which I prefer... seriously it's so good! Try the guacamole! We got a pitcher of margaritas and they were very tasty!

Stacy Barnes

Aulii n I came in at 930 and treatment e Very good even during Sturgis falls

Kim Ralfs

Had a blast with my college kids!!

Nathan Mork

Love their chips and salsa!

Josh E.

The Mexican food here is above average. It isn't going to be an overly memorable experience but I enjoyed my meal here. The staff is friendly and you can totally practice Spanish with them.

Angi Fritcher

Gluten Free options!!! Today, seafood enchilada with corn tortillas, chips & guacamole (made right in their kitchen) and taking home a side of their house hot sauce for my hubby & kids later. Lunch menu is full of choices & very inexpensive.

Monty Schrunk

We came here with a large group; a youth robotics team and parents in town for a tournament. We called ahead for a table and got a reservation, but when we arrived we were told there were no reservations that night because it was karaoke night (Thursday night) - although they did make a space to accommodate us. It turns out that "karaoke night" is one man (the owner maybe?) singing kitschy Mexican songs, followed by a DJ playing loud club music. Note that this isn't a club setting. There's no dance floor - just really loud music to eat to (forget conversation over the meal). The food was good and the portions generous. I got a box for my fajita leftovers - something that's out of character for me - and the burrito grande is HUGE. The place was very popular with the college crowd that night, likely because of B1G1 margaritas.

angelo mung

Very good ,excellent.

Carlos Rodríguez

Nice place to go with your friends and have a good night

Anthony Tuttle

Delicious Mexican food. Lots of options on the menu. Service is always adequate and a nice atmosphere to have dinner.
