Was traveling through Amarillo and found this place down the street from our hotel. Called ahead and they had my takeout ready to go when I rolled into town. The Tacos were great, especially the brisket taco. Their queso was fabulous. The fajita chicken salad was great. They were so nice to make my dinner before they had closed and... More

Our nephew recommended it. I also read a previous review, praising the stuffed avocado. It did not disappoint. Fast service, nice staff.

On the road we like to visit different local restaurants. Based on Tripadvisor, we stopped here mid afternoon. Chips were served warm with 2 salsas. The mango and chicken salad was delicious with the margarita line dressing. We also tried the chalupa lunch special with ground beef and a house margarita. Service was good, the price was reasonable and the... More

I stopped here for dinner on my recent trip to the Texas panhandle. A friend of mine recommended this place to me as he said his family ate here often. The food was delicious. I had the burrito covered in chili meat sauce and Hatch green chili sauce. Great! The chips and salsa were delicious also.

Queso Fundido as a starter dish. Wonderful and rich spinach with white cheese, mushrooms, and onions, served with flour tortillas. It was a meal in itself-plenty for two. The Chicken Lime salad was very good; again, two have shared this entre.

It's a Tex-Mex place with a little flare. The chips are thick enough to scoop the choices of hot sauce. There are a good number of make-your-own meals, such as the tacos. There are also a wide variety of meat styles, from the traditional ground beef to shredded brisket for your food choices. I go there often.

In a city with countless Mexican Restaurants these guys are in the middle. Cool location with good Architecture. Drinks are good and the chips and salsa are good. The enchiladas are the best thing on the menu. Tortilla soup is a good lunch choice. If you have not tried Joe Taco you should but don't expect too much.

We went there on probably a pretty busy evening before a 3 day weekend. The crowd was thinning out. It took us about 5 minutes before they greeted us and found a table. They gave us menus and took drink orders. The margarita came after about 5 minutes. The waitress was uninspired but it could be she was just tired.... More
