Diners who want to choose from a varied menu can do so at Dos Sabores Restaurant.
The eatery, located on 119th Street in Whiting, debuted on the food scene last October. On the menu at Dos Sabores, visitors will find a variety of traditional Mexican dishes as well as American fare.
Upon entering the restaurant, guests will find a convivial atmosphere. The eatery is decorated diner style with one dining room sporting blue booths, tables and chairs and the other dining room featuring hues of purple.
Pictures of pop culture icons, such as Marilyn Monroe, Superman, Audrey Hepburn and others decorate the walls of the restaurant. Also on another wall, guests will find a picture featuring Latin pop culture figures, including Mexican comic film actor Cantinflas.
During a recent Sunday morning breakfast visit to Dos Sabores, various songs played throughout the eatery as guests enjoyed a variety of Mexican and American dishes.
Our choices for breakfast that day were Posole, ($7.99 for large), which is a Mexican stew packed with pork and hominy; as well as the Denver Skillet ($6.99).
The Posole was filling, not too spicy and very flavorful. The Skillet proved a large serving and was enough to cart home for a dinner treat.
Among other items on the menu at the restaurant are Milanesa Dinner ($9.99 for chicken); Costilla de Puerco ($10.99); Taco Dinner ($7.99); the Dos Sabores Skillet ($7.49); Tricolor Omelet ($6.49); Meat Lover's Omelet ($7.99); and others.
