Been going to Amigo's at least once a month for the last 5 years! The chips & salsa are great! (ask for the orange habanero sauce if you really want to heat it up). Fajitas and Taco Salads are my fav's. Mark is the owner and runs a tight ship, service & food are top notch. Hint, get there at 6 or 6:30, 2 for one specials, the margaritas are great!

Thank you all for going above and beyond! Wish I lived there full time and could treat myself to Amigos on a daily basis!

Great food for a great price

I've been eating here on and off for years. I just moved back into the area and started going back. The food is excellant and the prices are even better.

Great Place for Tex-Mex

I loved the enchiladas and the freshly made chips. The Salsa is hand made and seems a little on the chunky side, but is good. This is not Pace from the jar poured into a bowl. The food is absolutely excellent. The portions are worth the price and the service outstanding. If you like Tex-Mex then this is a place you’ll have to try!

Great food, great service

I have been to the Altamonte Amigos at least 10-15 times a year for the last 6 years since moving to Altamonte and most of my experiences have been great. I think I can remember two times out of all those visits that did not meet my expectations. The food has always been great. The service is usually really good. This is probably one of two places around this area that I can always make a safe bet on. All of the surrounding restaurants are either good or terrible 100% of the time. I love the salsa, it always tastes fresh with the warm tortilla chips. This is the best salsa compared to any other Mexican restaurant around here. I recommend the Chicken Chimichanga with the queso sauce, that's my favorite and it's always great.

Pretty Good

The service was way better than the food...which was typical Tex-Mex. Nothing special but not bad either. The price was amazingly low. No liquor license so the Margarittas were so-so. This is a good alternative to Friday's (across the parking lot) which can get swamped. Amigo's is sort of hidden so probably doesn't get hit with all the I-4 traffic. From what we saw, mostly local types.

Not recommended

While this restaurant looks cozy and nice from outside, the dining experience was nothing like it!

My husband and I are both vegetarians and went for Cheese Enchiladas and Bean Burritos (recommended by our waiter).

The food was rather cold when it came out, the cheese inside the enchiladas not melted at all. We asked for it to be re-heated, and it was still cold inside the second time around, but too crisp and burnt in some areas.

We've eaten in many Mexican restaurants, and this one is not recommendable, and in our personal opinion, it certainly isn't Orlando's No.1!

They did take the Enchiladas off the bill.

If you love Velveeta

Velveeta is the cheese of choice at Amigos. That must be what puts the ""Tex"" in ""Tex-Mex"". My husband enjoyed the fajitas, but we both hated the salsa. It was very bland and had an odd texture.

Food worth the trip.

The decor needs sprucing up. However, the food is worth overlooking the sad worn appearance.
