While we normally went to the Arvada location, when it closed we started coming here. The service is always friendly, the food is great and fast. The salsa is my biggest weakness!

This is a restaurant that was always a must stop when it visiting friends and family in the area, but with it being in Aurora, it has limited the chances fo meals even more. Still great food for a great price.

The food was very close to authentic Mexican. Waitress Alejandra was nice. Food came out hot and fresh. Gotta try the sopapillas but one feeds two people and they also have extravagant sopapillas but we didn't try them.

Service was very quick and attentive. Since the number of Armadillo restaurants has dropped, I feared what might have happened to their quality. But, no problem. The food tasted great and server was regularly there.

My wife and I have eaten her mostly for lunch over the years and used to take the kids so it's kid friendly too. I like their burritos which are huge as are most of their portions. Service is virtuous prompt and consistent. Also their prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is decent and quiet even when crowded. Go with... More

This is a nice little restaurant. I liked the decor and the Mexican music. It really has a nice casual atmosphere. Our waiter was excellent. They went out of their way to accommodate our special requests. And, the price is very reasonable. The two of us ran up a bill of $29 which included soft drinks and desert. Not too... More
