So sloooooooooow

Took almost 2h to wait for the food, yes we were many but they never told us to try pick 2-3 dishes. They were completely understaffed... or kitchen couldn´t handle the heat. Atmosphere was very nice but the food was only ok. Expected more.

Fat food joint, very poor food, probably mostly prefabs and assembled in the kitchen on site. Not worth a visit.

Normally I will not recommend those standard based chain type restaurants if any local or origin choices are available in local area, nearby. This time we choose Amarillo because my business friend want to visit some finnish restaurant he had seen or heard earlier in his trip. Must admit that experience was much better than expected. Menu included enough good... More

The food and service in the restaurant was good, even if this is not a fine dining restaurant in any way. The strawberry margaritas were excellent, and the lady making them (in the bar) was very nice.

I had the only salmon on the menu. Menu says "with shrimps". There were two, so it was more than one... The portion was with sweet potatoes. They were raw.

Located in the city center and accessible. Their rockerfeller ribs is soft and good with fajita fries. Their mixed drinks are also popular. The service is fast and servers are nice.

It is a popular restaurant but i would say mostly for Finns. I can't really understand why it is most times so busy and full since the staff is not that friendly, you have to wait A LOT both to be sitted and get your food and the food is just ok. I think there are better choices in the... More

Visited here whilst on business. We were quickly shown to a table and brought a basket of warm nacho chips and salsa whilst making our choices. I opted for the Chicken pocket - a great choice, but in the end I could not finish it as it was a big plate! Would definitely go back.

I has there on a Tuesday quite early in the evening so the restaurant had plenty of empty tables, but because of the sign that says you have to wait to be seated, we waited. We had to wait at least 15 min before some waitress came and told us that we could choose an empty table (like they didn't... More
