The place was crowded when we entered on Saturday afternoon and the waiter told us that there is 45 mins line for the food. Nevertheless we got a seat and the waiter was very friendly asking us if we needed anything while waiting the food. I can say that this is probably the first time in any Amarillos that I've... More

Regardless where you enter an amarillo, it is the same. Dark interiors, and not-any-surprises with the food. Service was okay, nice waitress. Her male colleague was not so pleasant as he practically shouted the order details from across the restaurant to the bartender as he was too lazy to walk.

Ordered Fajitas and got something that was surely nothing close to any Mexican food I ever had. There was nothing wrong with the food - it was cheesy but ok to eat. But it was not Fajita as I know it!! Service was slow!

Very good texmex style restaurant. Last time I had a beef bollillo sandwich which wasn't that good compared to the other dishes I've had previously. Steaks and burritos are excellent.

Many times I have tried but no more. Service is usually slow and food is many times wrong or even cold when served. Price are ok but result is usually only bad mood. I cannot recommend.

The food was good. They seemed a bit low on staff, since we had to wait for a long time with noone visible in the whole dining area. Still, when we finally found the staff they were really friendly and gave us excellent service.
