The service was outstanding, the food was authentic and spicy, however there are some dishes that are not so spicy but delicious.

I was in Phoenix for a week and ate here 3 times! Great green chile and the pork dishes were definitely worth coming back for. Bypass the standard margarita and get the "fruta." It's worth the extra cost.

Have been to Los Dos Molinos about four times now while visiting from Texas. Am from New Mexico and a big fan of Northern New Mexico fare. This time tried the taco, cheese enchilada and blue corn tamale. All were very good. The chips and salsas were very good too, and we do like things very spicey, so we were... More

My family and friends took me for a surprise birthday party to Los Dos Molinos restaurant. I had a bean & cheese burrito, which it was ok. Service was great but the food was ok.

Los Dos Molinos is a little out of the way from about everything but if you like HOT Mexican food this is the place to go. Almost everything on the menu is too hot for me except for a pork dish which is slow cooked in clay pots and it has some heat but it is delicious. The place is... More

New Mexican-style food, very good but definitely on the spicy side.The margaritas are killer, just make sure you have a designated driver!! The restaurant can be very loud during peak times but you won't notice if you are drinking the margaritas. Worth a try, at least once! It's a neat little place and I've never had bad food here.

I live on the Mexican mainland, and I am always looking for a place we're I can say the food is equal to, or better than my experiences in Mexico. The menu provides a wide selection of dishes, along with great alcoholic beverages. I found the staff to be very friendly, courteous, and who freely goes out of their way... More

I have been to other outposts of Los Dos, but not the south Central one. The decor is funky and comfortable. The staff was friendly. This all led up to what I expected, which is great, spicy adovado ribs with fresh tortillas. Gets me every time that they are so good. Be warned that this is a place for pepper... More
