Wait staff was friendly and fast. The food was okay but not great. Strange entry - from the parking lot you enter through the "carry out" area or you walk all the way around the patio to enter through the front door.

The door by the parking lot is apparently the carry-out door. Employees were standing there and when we came in they rudely told us to go to another area of the restaurant to be seated. We went over to the "front" just to be led back to where we were, the bar area, to be seated. For some reason they... More

It's okay. But just ok. If you want really good mexican food, Amarillo has many more mexican restaurants that are WAY better. Try Leals.

The drinks came out quickly and were never empty (including my water, which rarely happens). We had an appitizer of guacamole,whixh was fabulous. We had chicken fajitas for two. The chicken... More

I have used them several times and it goes great. They set up everything and the food is excellent! I find the fajitas to be very popular.

We visited on 7/4/16 and the service was a bit slow. It seemed as though some of the staff had called off due to the holiday. But every employee we encountered was very friendly and didn't let the stress show.

Great location, just a few feet off I-40 west. The first time we ate there, they had some specials posted on the table stand, so we tried those. It was pretty good, and the service was pretty good as well. The next time we went through Amarillo, we stopped again. And, same result - good food. Nothing spectacular, but good... More

This was my third time visiting this establishment. The menu is huge and the prices average- and so is the food. I gave them only 2 stars because my order came out wrong. They fixed it, but they scraped the inside of my enchiladas out and replaced it with the correct filling. However, the remainder of the previous filling was... More
