Consistently good

We eat here each time we come to town. It is authentic Mexican as you find it in the Panhandle. After all, you have to serve what the customers will eat. The queso and hot sauces are good all worth trying. A varied menu gives our entire party a selection each person likes. The service and food are... read more

Ordered the fish tacos...arrived dry without sauce or dressing? Tasted somewhat leftover. A green rice was served alongside w/ shredded lettuce and diced tomato. The Chili con Queso w/ ground meat was just that. Melted American with some hamburger dumped on top. I added salsa for flavor...Huuuummmmm. Not impressed at this point. My sister's experience was better, She ordered outside... More

Lunch was your basic Mexican menu but was so flavorful and yummy! The service was great and it feels like a cute little family business. 😍 We would definitely come back!

I come here anytime I am in Amarillo visiting family. Food is consistently good. Service has always been great. I saw the reviews and they describe it as "Tex-mex" which is true. But it is good and reasonable.

We were told to try this place by a friend who likes their food. We were very disappointed with the food and with the service. Took forever To get waited on once we sat down. Wait staff seemed too busy playing and talking with one another to take care of customers. Once the food arrived it was cold overall. Tasted... More

Stopped in here for lunch on our way to Phoenix... Reviews said the food was authentic Mexican. Mmmmm, not really! The food was decent... But really was an American version of Mexican. Was looking for more authentic fresh flavors I've come to love in a true Mexican cooking. The spice just wasn't there. Having Mexican friends spoils a person!

Food was wonderful, friendly service seems like a place the locals visit; everyone was very nice. We had the New Mexican-style enchiladas which were very good, with both red & green sauce. There was a live band playing out on the patio, very festive locale.

While there are many options, I ordered the Chicken Burrito lunch special and was not disappointed. The meal started out with chips and 3 different salsas plus a queso dip. The green stuff was spicy, but the dark red salsa was my favorite. The burrito was loaded with seasoned grilled chicken, cheese and beans with a nice side of lettuce... More

My wife and I went to Jorge's on the advice of the desk clerk at the Comfort Inn. We were not disappointed at all. As two Californians living in Florida we are always in search of authentic Mexican food. The rice was seasoned perfectly and the refried beans were excellent. My wife's order included a crispy grilled corn tortilla beef... More

Typical Tex-Mex. The restaurant itself is nicely done and atmosphere good. Service was a bit on the slow side. I enjoyed the food but it's nothing special or unique.
