Los Dos Molinos Review

In a hacienda that belonged to silent-era movie star Tom Mix, this fun restaurant focuses on New Mexican–style Mexican food. That means hot. New Mexico chiles form the backbone and fiery breath of the dishes, and the green-chile enchilada and beef taco are potentially lethal. The red salsa and enchiladas with egg on top are excellent, as is the popular shrimp Veracruz with red chile sauce. Don't even bother asking for your dish to be prepared mild. There's no such thing at "Los Dos," and that's part of the fun. This is a must-do dining experience if you want true New Mexican–style food, but be prepared to swig lots of water. There are other locations across the Valley, but this is considered the original.

    Los Dos Molinos Review

    We had two entrees, two tacos and a pitcher of marguerites and it was $100? I later went back to review the bill and our waiter said, "you guys were fun to serve", then the manager interrupted and said, "we don't care if you or your "fooking" (cleaned up) cheapskate friends ever come back" and I was invited to leave the restaurant, immediately. I will NEVER GO BACK TO LOS DOS MOLINOS. $37 for margs and apparently $60 for two tacos and two entrees, that is ridiculous!
