Amigos/Kings Classic is a small Nebraska-based fast-food chain that serves Mexican and American foods. The restaurant was founded as Amigos in Lincoln, Nebraska in 1980. The chain was solely a Mexican fast-food restaurant until 1998, when many locations were co-branded with A&W Restaurants. After A&W was bought by Yum! Brands, Inc. in 2002, a defunct regional burger chain, Kings Classic, was revived and replaced A&W in 2003. Several locations are also open for breakfast and offer a third and even fourth brand, Winchell's Donuts and Kopeli Coffee. For a short time, a few of the chains also held Rezato's Fast Italian, these only lasted about a year between 2004 and 2005.

Amigos/Kings Classic has over 25 locations in Nebraska, most in the eastern part of the state and/or along Interstate 80.
