This centrally located Mexican restaurant has been around for ages and survived through the recession. The people are friendly, the atmosphere is fun. Food is pretty good and the service is always, always excellent.

We wanted to watch football and at the same time enjoy good quick food. Tried this place for first time and would recommend for happy hour and watching a game. Their Armadillo Gold wings are fabulous! Their Calamari for $3.99 is delicious and plentiful!! Our bartender was very nice man. Service excellent. Potato skins were also a hit!

From out of town and was at a music venue that did not have food. Through trip advisor wanted to find a close restaurant and precede to our hotel. Saw Armadillo Grill and loved the name and was glad that their kitchen was open late. Bartender was pleasant and the customers were mainly playing pool. We ordered philly sliders and... More

Atmosphere is very mundane and the menu tries to cater to many pallets. Had lunch here expecting lunch type menu. Everything was dinner type entrees. Party of five, each getting something different. Nothing stood out as above average.

This place is right on Camelback and easy to find. They have a decent menu and one of my favorites is their Philly Cheese Steak sandwich. We found the service to be above average and their prices were very fair. They do offer an intriguing fried pickles and we split an order just to try them. They were right on... More

Heard this place was incredible, so met a friend for dinner. The restaurant smelled greasy and was dark/dismal. Service was patchy (meaning refilling a soda, checking back after dropping food at table--not too demanding). Large menu but food was average...and not much atmosphere.

We went to Armadillo Grill specifically for their fried dill pickle spears that we remember having there a few years ago. They were good, but not as good as we remember. The pickle skin was very tough and hard to cut. The Philly Cheeesteak was excellent.

Found this place on a business trip when we decided to drive down Camelback and look for a good rated pub on Yelp. Boy did we luck out! We never would have stopped here, just based on what we saw from the street. The menu was intriguing, beer was very reasonable, and we even stayed for trivia.

We are the place to go for a quick and flavorful lunch, drinks with friends before, during or after the game or a quiet business meeting in our back dining area. There is always lots to do at 'The Dillo'.... with over 25 TV's, off track betting, games, pool tables, and a full menu of fantastic, fresh food served till 12:30 weekdays, and 1 am on weekends. Pair that with our great selection of beer's and cocktails and you have a winning combination
