Dos Caminos, why so popular

bakerboyz | Mar 19, 2009 10:39 AM

Visiting son this past weekend. I let him make the reservation because he liked Dos Caminos and wanted to bring Mom and Dad. We had a 8:00 PM reservation at the Park Ave. location. We were promptly seated in the front room which was incredibly noisy but they found us a nice table in the back room which was far better. The restaurant remained packed from the time we got there until the time we left around 9:30 but I do not understand why. I found the food to be very average and overpriced for the quality. We started with the guacamole which I found to be over-salted and edible only because we were hungry. My wife ordered a shrimp with garlic dish, my son ordered a salmon dish and I ordered the 3 course meal off the special restaurant week menu. All of the dishes were fairly bland and not very interesting or complex. In addition, I ordered 2 cocktails which tasted like straight fruit juice at $12 a pop. The only positive was that the service was outstanding, we had a very pleasant and professional waitress. In the end, about $210 including the tip. Not sure what all the buzz was about?
