Los Amigos Mexican Restaurant & Bar, Atlantic City
Voted BEST TEQUILA & RUM BAR in Atlantic City Weekly’s Reader’s Choice 2018 Nightlife Awards!
Originating in West Berlin in 1976, Los Amigos owners Curt Taylor, Mimi Taylor, and Patricia Shemeley have been offering some of the area’s best Mexican and Southwestern style cuisine for over forty years.
“Los Amigos, West Berlin” was the first Mexican restaurant in the Delaware Valley during the mid-1970s. Along with authentic Mexican cuisine, we introduced the popular cocktail, the Margarita, to the Greater Philadelphia Metropolitan Area.
In 1978, with the demand for authentic Mexican food increasing, we headed for Atlantic City and opened “Los Amigos, AC.” The building we currently reside in has been on Atlantic Avenue since 1884 and you can still see the copper sheet-metal section from the original building today.
Over the years, Los Amigos has dramatically grown from offering nachos and tacos to creative and Southwestern Inspired items. We pride ourselves on our vegan dish menu as well as our extensive tequila list. These dishes are the result of research and development through consulting with Mexican chefs and authors, Diane Kennedy and Jane Butel. Not to mention, our chefs have received outstanding culinary education from both the Academy of Culinary Arts and the Culinary Institute of America.
Come in and enjoy the Readers Choice AC Weekly 2018 Nightlife recipient for Best Tequila/Rum Bar. We hope to see you soon!
