241 S. Monroe St.
Waxahachie, TX 75165
I want to remind Ellis County of a GEM we have located right in downtown Waxahachie. If you know me, you already know how much I love Two Amigos!
Two Amigos is located at 241 S. Monroe St., on the west side of downtown. They are open Monday-Saturday from 7 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. They have been a staple for breakfast to anyone working near downtown for almost 20 years. From breakfast burritos as big as a grown man’s forearm to enchiladas that will make you question every other enchilada you’ve ever tried, Two Amigos brings their A-game when it comes to authentic home cooked Mexican food.
This week I met a good friend for lunch at Two Amigos. My choice for lunch consists of two go-to meals. I either get the combo #2 (which I did this time) or the three taco special. Both are excellent choices, but I went for the enchiladas this time.
As you walk in to Two Amigos, you will notice a HUGE glass window providing a window seat to the action going on in the kitchen. I personally like this, and it was carried over from the close atmosphere in the original location. The new location, almost three years old now is absolutely beautiful inside and out. Unfortunately for the Aguilar family, they are right smack dab in the middle of the road construction project currently taking place downtown. We will talk more on that later. You will find large, clean bathrooms, and seating that has been adequately spaced for social distancing. I noticed that all of the staff were wearing masks and hand sanitizer was available at the front door.
I started my meal with their homemade chips and salsa. I prefer the red salsa but most of my friends prefer the salsa verde. I also ordered some queso, which was excellent as always.
Our meals came out quickly and were fresh and hot. My friend ordered the carne guisada, which looked amazing. I have had it before as well and I was feeling a bit jealous when I saw his food. Then my combo #2 showed up and all was right in the world. Three large enchiladas, one beef, one cheese and one chicken with rice and beans and a side of tortillas. The angels spoke and the heavens opened up; I’m pretty sure those tortillas are the manna provided from above. Honestly, it’s more food than one person should eat, but Momma didn’t raise a quitter. I did my best and I don’t regret it one bit.
As our meals were winding down, the waitress brought me my usual to-go tea. Since I was working that day, it was nice to have a large glass of tea to take with me.
Now, about that construction downtown. It’s awful. It really is. It makes parking for Two Amigos a nightmare, but it’s is WORTH IT! Honestly, they are struggling. Between the construction and COVID-19, Two Amigos has lost a lot of business. If we don’t want to lose this amazing food and family, we need to get out and eat with them. They do offer takeout if you don’t want to go in. They also offer delivery with GrubHub. So, get together with your friends and place an order or go eat there this week. Share your pictures with me. I want to see what you got!
