Doesn't come close to Mexican at all.

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.

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.
