Cityview November 1, 2007: "Opening to the biggest buzz in many year, Dos Rios hopes to change the way locals think about Mexican food...their culinary idea was to apply the best fresh and local ingredients to meticulously researched regional recipes... there's nothing like this place between here and Chicago... supports local farmers.... Their dedication to traditional recipes is obvious: in the spices on the complimentary pumpkin seeds; in the different masas used for hand made tortillas, empanadas, tamales and enchiladas; in the spit roasted meats; the chile glazes; the many fresh made salsas and different moles. Lunch featured a two-taco special complemented perfectly with a sweet citrus vinaigrette salad and soup for $10. Cocktails were made with fresh fruit juices and pure concentrates, never mixes. The margarita salt even came from top of the line Salt Trader. Bottom line: Dos Rios is on track for becoming one of Iowa's very best restaurants." Read More...
