The Kansas City metro has an abundance of Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurants. We're lucky. Imagine living in some foreign country where a taco or burrito isn't available. The horror!!
We have been meaning to try Amigo's for a couple of years and finally made it for lunch. Why did we wait so long?
Situated in a little strip of businesses at 18th Street Expressway and Steele Road, you'll feel like you have completely left town. JE suspects this place get a bit wild later in the evening as evidenced by the discarded beer bottles decorating the window sills outside.
Hole in the wall, joint and dive are the best descriptions of the restaurant And, in some cases, like this, wonderful food awaits you.
The friendly waitress brought chips and salsa with mild in the white bowl and hot in the red bowl. Ask for mild!
Amigo's offers an American menu and a Mexican menu, both of which are vast menus. We ordered off the Mexican menu.
JE had a ground beef chimichanga with rice and fideo, plus a deep fried ground beef flour tortilla taco.
He loved it all, even saying the fideo was the best in the area. You can tell food here is made fresh to order and not coming off a SYSCO truck.
I ordered the #24 combo of a chicken burrito, ground beef taco, deep fried ground beef flour taco, rice and fideo.
It was a lot of food, but it was truly delicious. As JE mentioned, the fideo is the best we've had. The food had good flavors and did not disappoint.
Most likely Amigo's is very popular with the neighborhood as there didn't seem to be many tourists there. It did look like a very diverse crowd with old white people, Mexicans, and some gays. You can feel the love here -- fliers were posted for a taco fundraiser for someone. Experience the love for yourself at Amigo's.
