Friendly, awkward tex-mex

Amarillo is remotely modeled around a Western saloon; masses of make-believe kitsch... The tex-mex menu is very colorful; most dishes appear quite edible. My fajitas were OK. The service was pointedly casual and friendly. The overall ambiance is awkward, thou...

Visited here with some colleagues and it was a good experience. It was quite busy but the service was great and food came quickly. The food was really nice and there was plenty of it. The menu is has plenty of choice and there should be something on there for everyone:-)

Been there during the week with colleagues. Large space with 2 floors, then might be convenient for groups. Food is nice, my hot burger was really hot, and I use to eat spicy food.

This Amarillo is rather large, so you get a table almost immediately. The food is ok, not anything I'd die to have another time but portions are large. It is sort of texmex meets burger place, but there are far better Mexican restaurants around the same price range or even cheaper in Helsinki (try Cholo or their sister restaurants Patrona... More

After many years I ended up in Amarillo. The service is still as slow as ever. And as errand as ever. If you end up here in heavens name do not order any of pasta dishes. They are all over cooked and tastless.

Lunch menu includes a salad option that you can choose two toppings out of quite many options. They were flexible to accommodate my special dietary restrictions. They also have four other options including burgers and such. Lunch includes also a soup and coffee or tea. Nothing special but close to my office. Always space for a private conversation too.
