While the biodegradable flatware, organic ingredients, and reclaimed building materials (the tables, chairs, bench, and wainscoting can all be sourced to a barn in Upstate New York, according to the website) are great, it’s still important for the food to be good.
Dos Toros did not disappoint. I ordered a Basic (no meat) Plato, which includes rice, black beans (pinto is also an option), salsa, and manchego cheese. I opted out of the sour cream but went for the guacamole, which I have to say, rivals my mother’s. It was nice and mild, and the avocado-cilantro balance was perfect. The salsa was also fantastic. I wish I had the recipe…
They also offer burritos, tacos (hard and soft) and quesadillas. I’ll definitely be going back. With nothing on the menu over $7.50, Dos Toros is a delicious, affordable option for a quick lunch or dinner. I found the portion sizes to be generous but not outlandish—you’ll definitely feel like you’re getting your money’s worth but won’t feel like a wuss taking some home to enjoy the next day.
I made it about halfway through my meal. I’m already looking forward to the leftovers!
