That's spanish for "drunken cowboys singing karaoke". Is this place a joke just to lure drunk cowboys from the stockyards? Is the Mexican contingency of Fort Worth laughing at them on hidden cameras? Probably not. But you should go and laugh at them.
Dos Gringos is on University just north of the stockyards so it is conveniently located for this plan, if it exists. Apparently this place has been around for awhile, but I'm too busy watching the olympics to research how long. But I know why its been around. It's a decent mexican place.
I recently dined at the lovely establishment and was welcomed by a Townes Van Zandt wannabe singing beautiful music and showing why some people might make jokes about cowboys. He had a Texas flag shirt, that was five times too big for him. He also had an extra large cowboy hat. Not like the dumb and dumber cowboy hat, but not like you one you'd find at Leddy's. He had a classic look that said, "I sing here every night". Maybe he was more of a Garth Brooks wannabe.
But its easy to see how one could get drunk, buy a giant cowboy hat and Texas shirt here. The margaritas are served in what Texans call "fish bowls" and what people from Iowa would call, "pools". It took Mrs. FortWorthHoleInTheWall two hands and three minutes to drink it all. She said they were good but it was gone too quickly to find out.
The restaurant also had food.
First things first - chips and salsa. The chips were decent, in that light, airy and not greasy sort of way that makes things decent. The salsa had a good spice that hit on the way down but was a bit runny for me. For my meal, I had a beef enchilada and taco and they met the standard required for basic mexican fare - a bit of spice, cheesy, beefy, tender, and really good. Definitely worthy of a repeat trip.
The Mrs. had the beef fajita nachos and she promised me the beef was tender, the chips were covered in cheese and they were not at all decent (see above). They tasted good, but they were greasy.
So all in all, drunk cowboys, DWI inducing margaritas, chips/salsa that were good, good basic mexican food, and fairly affordable prices make this a place worthy of a revisit.
Let me know what you think.
