Saw all the reviews on the salsa and food. Salsa is just runny salsa, no substance to it at all. I ordered the equivalent to Queso Flamiago, which is melted mozzarella cheese with chorizo, theirs was white cheese dip poured over chorizo. It was horrible. I asked if their guacamole was fresh made, they said yes. OK, it was fresh made squeezed from a paste. It is not fresh avocados. The beer was ice cold after traveling all day. I will not eat here again, but may go have a beer here.

Wife wanted to try a Mexican restaurant while in Hays for a tournament. Read trip advisor and found this place recommended. We were questioning our choice when we came in, looks like a dive with some border town decorations. As poor of atmosphere is as good the food. Service was good and checked often. Large portions and excellent food. Guacamole was very good. It’s a dive but the food more than makes up for it.

When we travel I-70 between Kansas & Colorado, we usually stop in Hays to eat. We have two favorite restaurants in Hays and El Dos De Oros is one of them. Large assortment of menu items. Everything we've had there has been delicious! The chips are warm, perfect & quickly replenished with great salsa.
Fast, friendly service and very reasonable prices.
Exterior is deceptive.. Looks kind of dumpy, but don't let that stop you. Also...GPS doesn't direct you correctly.
It's right of I-70 on the east side of the street.

Since this had good reviews we were trying to find this place. our GPS sent us to the wrong place. Don't trust your GPS! It's near the corner behind a gas station & near the best western.

It was a fabulous meal - so happy to find it. The chips & salsa were great. We had the special - fajita quesadilla. It was a large portion, but that's not the best part. It was some of the best Mexican I've eaten.

Don't go expecting anything fancy inside - or out. It looks like a dive from outside. But if you want great food, you will find it here.
