Great meal even in the bar!

My wife and I had arrived in Amarillo at the end of a drive up from Dallas. We were just passing through and she was disappointed when we learned there was an hour wait for a dinning room table so we grabbed sat at a table in the bar -- which were also in demand. Great food, friendly service.

My wife and I have dined at this restaurant since it began in a small building off 34th street. Until now, this had been our regular anniversary date and we always look forward to the food and the atmosphere. I give this place a 2 simply because the atmosphere is still excellent. However, the food was like eating at from... More

Adorable interior but the food is the fantastic! Being hungry business travelers, we tried to try it all! High points: Mob queso- food on fire, can't go wrong with that! Creamed corn- you only thought you knew how good corn could be! Fried green tomatoes- good but not that different that you would expect. Sauce made it though.Entrees: Beef Medallions-fantastic,...

Took an interview candidate out to dinner here this past week. Surprised to have another separate party seated in the same "back room" as we were. So slightly noisy from the need to discuss things standpoint, but food was awesome as usual. Had the Tx redfish and was superb. Out of the creme brûlée and coconut parfait.....so settled on the...

If you are single and looking for a great place with lots of ambiance, this is the place. it is also the same for married couples or for dining out with friends and family. Large portions and delicious food. We had the Lasagna and the Chicken Scallopini. Both were great. For you wine drinkers, they have a large selection.

We don't have a lot of places for Italian food. Macaroni Joes is ok...not great but not bad. Go with a smile!

The waiter was excellent and very accommodating. The steaks were perfect, and the duck was excellent. The wine list was very good with reasonable prices. The interior is decorated as if you are in Italy with the dining area broken up to make it seem more personable. We didn't have a reservation on a Tuesday evening, however, they fit us... More

I guess it's one of the "better" spots in Amarillo. To me, it's similar to Olive Garden. Don't get me wrong, every business trip to Amarillo ends up here but doesn't exactly impress.

terrible experience... After ordering our food and waiting for close to an hour, it never came. We were told several times the reason for the delay was a large party at another table. So we paid for the salad and left. I tried to telephone the manager later that evening; however, you can't talk to a person as they just... More

Macaroni Joe's was a surprise and a delight to us! We had a private room for the rehearsal dinner. Loved the decor and all the very interesting and unique rooms! We had a large selection to choose from and the food was all very very good! Great wait staff as well!
