On March 22, 2013, Dos Amigos opened its doors to the public for the very first time.
Originally the site of a Taco Bell in years past, owner and creator Hugo fell in love with the building as he was looking for a place to open his new restaurant. Situated right on Route 47 and in full view of the discerning locals and tourists during the summer, he purchased the plot and quickly set about remodeling the old Taco Bell into its current Dos Amigos style. Choosing bright colors and decorations that were reminiscent of a Spanish villa, he wanted to create an atmosphere that would fit in well with the authentic Mexican experience that he wanted to give to visiting patrons.
It wasn’t enough to make just the building look authentic — the food is what Hugo wanted to set him apart from the other Mexican restaurants in the area. He wanted a real Mexican-style type of cooking for his establishment. Once the remodeling was done in the kitchen, he sat down to create a menu that would give his customers a real taste of how Mexican cooking should be. All ingredients used in every dish are made on site and are homemade at Dos Amigos, giving every dish a unique taste that you would be hard pressed to find in any other restaurant in the area.
From the start, Hugo set out on a mission to create an authentic Mexican experience in South Jersey. Dos Amigos is the culmination of that dream and vision after several long years of toil and work. For a year, Dos Amigos has been serving the Rio Grande and Wildwood areas, and will continue to do so for many years to come.
