We have enjoyed Antonio's for many years, even through changes in ownership. The food is very good, service is above average and I like the margaritas. Try Antonio's and write your own review!

The variety and quality of food for Sunday Brunch at this place is superior. Diced ham & eggs, chorizo & eggs, omelette station, bacon, sausage, ham, enchiladas, fajitas, a tortilla station, salad bar, desserts, you name it!. Your choice of unlimited Champagne, Mimosas or Bloody Mary's. Great food, great drinks, great service. My wife and I love this place!

I came on a Jazz night, fantastic music but the food!!! Refried beans were so mashed that they looked like diarrhea, the prawns in "superb one sauce" tasted of nothing and the sauce tasted like out of a sachet! The chablis was good and my server attentive, but i would never go back for the food!
