Reliably great food and delightful wines. Have tried virtually everything on the menu and never disappointed. Also a great catering business for large parties. Great chef, well trained, friendly wait staff. Fun bar!

Went here for an interview. The food was great. You can never go wrong with Italian food. It would be a nice place to take a date to.

My husband and I enjoyed our meal at Macaroni Joe's very much, the food and wine were excellent. However, the next morning (Sunday) I discovered my purse was missing and realized I had left it in the restaurant. We were very distraught because we were passing through Amarillo on our way to Colorado and the restaurant was closed on Sundays.... More

After driving for 10 hours from Aspen, we pulled into Amarillo for the night, tired and hungry. Since it was a Saturday night during the Christmas holiday, we made a reservation earlier in the day so we would not have to wait to eat. We had an 8 p.m. reservation at Macaroni Joes, the highest rated restaurant in town per... More

Just coming in to town and not knowing where to go for dinner (close to 16th and Georgia), we asked a lady on the street for a recommendation. Joe's Macaroni did not sound like a classic, attractive name. But, we were in for very nice surprises. A very romantic atnosphere coupled with a pleasant decor, was our first nice surprise.... More

Excellent experience here! We needed a private room and the manager was very helpful and patient. He gave me a full tour, costs were fully explained (very fair) and the arrangements went off as planned. Both rooms were very nicely decorated, we used the smaller of the two rooms. The service was very good. The food was also very good.... More

While traveling through Amarillo, we called at the last minute for a reservation on a busy Friday night. This was our first time here and they got us in quickly. The decor was cozy and our server was very nice and professional. We ordered two steaks and both were cooked perfectly. We enjoyed this restaurant and will eat here again... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Amarillo! We are always taken care of and this last trip they went above and beyond. We tried the Ahi Tuna appetizer and it was amazing!
