Good food if you get past the hostess

Food is always good, salsa is great. Hostess can't be bothered to care. Snarl on her face and dismissive. Rather talk with friends

wow. We have eaten here before and found it good but this stop was our last. Food was salty to the point of being inedible. This was true of both our meals. Server disappeared after bringing our food and when she returned to clear the table of our half eaten meals, we informed her of how bad the food was.... More

We have been eating here for years and it is always good. Plow into the green sauce with a hot chip to start off the experience. Speciality dishes with awesome meat choices add that extra touch of yumminess. Headed there now! Don't debate, just come on and enjoy.

There patio is a great place to eat. The fish taco's are my favorite as they don't fry their fish. We've had several luncheons and a few dinners here always good.

We were staying at the Best Western in the Medical Center and this is the closest restaurant. So being weary travelers on a terror trip over 3300 miles, we went there for dinner the two nights we were in Amarillo. I think it could be cleaner. Nothing special about the food. We received very good service from Brittainy and Halee.... More

After being told this place was great I decided to try it and went with a friend. The food was horrible. Service was lacking. The music unfitting for a "mexican" restaurant. If you want real, good mexican food, go somewhere else.

By far the best Mexican food I have ever had. It is so good that my wife and I went back two days in a row. Great prices, great food, friendly staff, live music on the weekends, great drink specials. Anytime we are in Amarillo we will be going here!

This is my favorite place to go for lunch near the Amarillo medical center. They always seat me promptly even when busy at lunch, and the food is prepared fast enough for me to get back to work on time. Service is generally friendly, but not overly so. They are concentrating on getting food out rather than chit-chat, which I... More
