Excited about Eating by Ernie & Dora Hiers

This edition of Excited about Eating takes us to Dos Amigos, a neighborhood restaurant in Boone, NC, serving authentic Mexican cuisine. This place always seems to be really busy so we decided to give it a try.

Exterior doesn’t scream, “Come in!” But inside was quiet and comfortable, and they’re always busy.

Dora here. We’ve passed by this place a gazillion times because it’s sandwiched between our favorite pizza place (Capone’s) and our favorite coffee shop (Higher Grounds). The exterior doesn’t really scream, “Come in!” But, inside, it’s quiet, the music soft rather than blaring, and I appreciated the ample room between tables.

Now I always like menus with pictures of the food, so when I saw the picture of the Street Corn, I knew I had to try it for our appetizer. The corn was tender, slathered with mayonnaise and dusted with cheese, and a perfect way to start a meal. Dora here. I could eat this corn every night of the week. Sweet. Buttery. Delicious.

For my lunch, I chose the Taco Salad. Loaded with ground beef and fresh ingredients like lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and sour cream, and served in a crispy flour tortilla shell. Very good, and I would definitely order it again.

Taco Salad, very good

Dora here. I always love hearing the sizzle of chicken fajitas as they’re delivered to the table. Can you see the steam rising up? Yum! Loaded with chicken, light on the veggies (which is always a plus for me!), and subtle, not overpowering, flavors. We just found our new go-to for Mexican food in Boone. 🙂

What about you? What’s your favorite Mexican dish?
