Have eaten there many times and never disappointed. Sometimes they are quite busy, but the wait is worth it. Good value.

Since last review, nothing much has changed. Restaurant was almost empty in middle of afternoon so seating was not a problem. Waiter made appearance quickly took our drink order and quickly came back for meal order. Food was served in due order, hot and well presented. All was in order and food was good but not exceptional. Waiter was on the ball but not overly friendly. Acceptable venue.

The absolute worst "mexican" food I've ever put in mouth ! Zero taste ! I don't think they know they're supposed to cook Mexican food ! Ever had runny refried beans ? Tasteless rice ? Enchiladas had no flavor ! I couldn't even finish the meal ! Makes Taco Bell look like a five star restaurant !!!

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant. They are a small family owned restaurant with excellent service and food. You definitely get your money's worth here. I get the fajitas every time but my wife has tried almost everything else and not once were we ever disappointed. If you go on a Saturday night be prepared to wait 10 to 15 minutes for a seat because they are usually packed.

Since my last review, this restaurant has much improved in food quality and service. This time around, the food was served hot, well prepared and quality was good. No negative comments from anyone of us. Restaurant was clean and well staffed. Staff was friendly and willing to serve as needed. Good service, good food this time.

We use them to cater all our family celebrations. You can't beat the price and everyone always loves the food. They bring everything to your house including all condiments and flatware. People are always me where I got the food catered from because it's just so good. And there are ALWAYS leftovers because they give you soooo much.

This is a nice restaurant, good food and cold beer. I had enchaladas and a taco with ground beef and would have liked the meat a little moister. The beer was great with a 33 ounce draft for $4.00.

Dos Gorditos (which is now El Gorditos by the way) is without a doubt, our favorite place in Belleville for great Mexican food! The restaurant has quite an extensive variety of amazing Mexican dishes made with everything from beef and pork to chicken and seafood that it can be a bit difficult to choose what to order. I believe there are also a few selections that are vegetarian friendly as well. The portion sizes are quite large and yet the prices are very reasonable for the amount of food you get. Rest assured that unless you have a large appetite, you’ll most likely be needing a carry-out container to take leftovers home and some of the entrees are plentiful enough for two people to share. The restaurant also features a well stocked bar with a decent selection of beers and mixed drinks and while I’m not really a tequila fan myself, they have one of the best Margaritas I’ve ever tasted! The staff is friendly and the service is very good. The servers check on us frequently for drink refills and to resupply us with their complimentary, freshly fried corn tortilla chips and homemade salsa which is second to none but take my advice and try to avoid filling up on them as you’ll want to leave plenty of room for your entree. The atmosphere is comfortable, clean and inviting with several televisions around the dining area which are usually tuned to sports channels. When the dining room is full, the noise level can be a bit high but not uncomfortably so. The interior is painted in the types of bright pastel colors and Mexican/Spanish murals that celebrate the cultural influence of the food being served. Overall, a great place with fantastic food and hospitality. We highly recommend El Gorditos!

But the food was really good and service was excellent. The portions are really large and the Margaritas are very very good. We will be putting this on our regular list switching off on occasion for another one of our favorites

It is no longer dos gorditos. It is now el gorditods. Which is very disappointing. When it was dos gorditos it was fantastic now that it is el gorditod it was what you expect from a mexican restaurant in a strip mall . Please bring back dos gorditos. Food comes out lukewarm at best or barely cooked at all . Can't see a reason to ever visit here again truthfully

I use the nail place near here all the time and seen it many times never tried it. With niece from out of town decided to try it after our pedicures. Took a bit to get seated as they seemed confused who was "up" with the wait staff. Brought our drinks fast and then disappeared for a bit. Salsa and chip came and they were delicious. Our food came quick and soon we were devouring our selections. I had enchiladas and a tamale. Both were good and well slathered with sauce which most places don't put on enough enchilada sauce. Took a bit to get our check which was mildly annoying but the most annoying thing was how loud the noise was from the crowd and I really think it is caused by the design of the ceiling that bounces everything around. I think a very small investment in some sound absorbing foam in the ceiling would do wonders to make it not so loud and you can talk and hear to your table mates
