Best Margarita's and awesome food! You can't go wrong with the fish tacos, burritos, fajitas or the margaritas!! Great, friendly staff!

Authentic Dinner After a day at the beach, we were told this place was perfect for authentic Mexican style cuisine! So my wife and I decided to give it a try on one of our last nights here in HH We started of with the Chips, Salsa & Queso Dip....Perfect in all aspects even the Salsa Bar~ The Queso was perfect, Spicy and Consistent! Amazing salsa and the Green Salsa was perfect! My wife had the Nachos W/Chicken and I had the Killer Burrito (Carnitas) It was phenomenal and perfect! Ingredients made each piece pop! What an amazing place....Portions were enormous and Wow! Amazing Margaritas too add to this fabulous meal~ The servers and prep cooks were working constant and the place was clean and an amazing atmosphere with indoor and outdoor seating! Highly recommend and what a hidden gem of the beaten path. A HH place from now on for us~

The best Mexican food ever!! I'm very picky with Mexican food. The experience, the food, the cleanliness of Amigos... and did I mention the food? This is simply the best food in Hilton Head. The stuff was super friendly. My friends loved their food as well!!! I highly recommend it!!

Great Mexican Food If you want great, authentic Mexican food then Amigos Cafe and Cantina is the place to go. A small family run restaurant with fabulous food. The staff is friendly and the service is excellent. Be sure to come hungry, because the portion are large. You will not be disappointed.

Small divey kind of place Small divey kind of place but food is wonderful. You order at the counter and seat yourself. They didn’t have chimichangas on the menu but they made them for us by special request. The preparation and taste was excellent. Been there 3 times this trip 😎

Love the authenticity! I don’t often give 5-star reviews, but somehow feel this place deserves this rating — perhaps mostly because of its authenticity. From the music to the counter staff ... from the shy, beautiful women cooking out the back to the actual food itself ... and from the gentle simplicity of the cantina to the line-up of beer-drinking locals at the bar ... one could almost mistake oneself for actually being in Mexico. Once we ordered our meals from the front counter (which was a tough thing to do ... if only because the menu is so extensive and it was hard to decide what to eat!) and took our seat at a table, our drinks and then meals were quickly served. And oh my, those meals! Super fresh and absolutely GINORMOUS. None of us could finish what we’d ordered (probably shouldn’t have ordered the chips and salsa as a starter...) and took about 2/3 of it home as leftovers. My taco salad with chicken was one of the best Mexican salads I’ve ever had, though my husband wishes he’d ordered something other than the chicken fajita burrito — he loves burritos but not so much fajitas, so will try something else when we go back. Loved the cozy atmosphere and the decor — one could sit and idle away hours here, just sipping beer and staring at the walls! Will definitely return when we’re back here in the summer.

    review rating 5  Great food great quality not to mention the price made it well worth it!! It was a win win on food quality for the right price! I could eat at this place everyday without braking the bank especially considering that's easy to do on this island. Place was clean staff was extremely nice food was good I will be back anytime I'm in Hilton Head. I ordered carne asada torta, carne asada taco packed with meat 👌🏻 kids quesadilla! Portions were very large! Have enough for leftovers.

    review rating 5  I go here as much as I can. Fajita steak burrito, the best thing I can only eat half of! You could weight it in pounds (maybe not). You won't leave hungry!
