Was hungry and didn't want to cook at home.

We visit this place quite many times in a year and even at evenings, service is quick and friendly. Try to take places near the bar counter to ensure you don't be forgotten!

Went for burgers in the evening. Placing order was quick and food also arrived quite rapidly. However getting the check too some time since personnel seemed to vanish. Average chain food in Finland. If you are into american / mexican food, try American Diner instead.

Amarillo offers nothing really Mexican at all. The food is good if you are looking for something other than kebabs or other casual dining places. Don't expect authentic Mexican cuisine, but the food is always good.

Amarillo is a very popular texmex-restaurant. On fridays and saturdays it is best to make a reservation or you'll wait like hour or two before you can even order food. Their menu is huge and there are normal tortilllas and fajitas, but many many more interesting dishes. Start with Muchos Nachos or Sampler Plate and You'll get the idea what's... More

Everytime I've eaten here I left with a bad mood. Service is bad, food is bland and mediocre and one time our table was full of flies! You can find many better places in this town and with better prices. When they opened like 20 years ago, it was a proper mexican restaurant and the food was great, but not... More

I have tried other Amarillos in Finland. This one has a nice terrace and good service, and the food somewhat better than the other Amarillo I tried, but still a bit poor: greasy and overcooked.
