Disappointing

The food was average/good, the service slow, which is no surprise since we frequent that establishment. Notice that the men's bathroom had one stall out of order. The other stall was missing its door latch and the floor was dirty with uneven tiles. The wash area sink also had uneven tiles and... read more

Have not been hear in years so decided to stop in. Service was good drinks were good and food was good. We went as a family and it was well worth the time and money. Also we went on a Saturday night around 7 pm when all the other places have a waiting list.

We called this afternoon and made reservations for 8:30 tonight. The employee we spoke with didn't mention they close at 8. We confirmed the time. I even have a screenshot of this locations adress with time open, and it says 9pm for tonight. We drove more than 45 miles to get there. Arrived at 8:15 only to have their staff... More

I have patronized many Armadillo location over the years and still visit the "original" in La Salle two or three times annually. The Armadillo never was and was never going to be a Michelin three star restaurant. If that is your expectation, you will be disappointed. If instead, a friendly, welcoming, decent neighborhood restaurant is what you need, then this... More

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.
