Brunch Buffet Bonanza!

I always rate restaurants compared to the class they are in. So McDonalds would never rate against Denny's or Snooze for breakfast. That also means that four stars doesn't mean the best Eggs Benedict in town - but very good in its class. This Armadillo is really good for breakfast. The buffet is... read more

My favorite Mexican food chain restaurant. I love their seafood enchiladas with jalapeno cream sauce or the Del Mar sauce. Don't pass up on a daiqurisi while you're there too.

This was one of those second choice things. We had plans to go elsewhere, but the traffic was murderous. After a quick area survey, we settled on this place. Big Mistake. We were seated promptly, and received a basket of chips and drinks fairly quickly, which earned the 1 rating. Thereafter, it was all downhill. The waiter took forever to... More

We visited this restaurant in January and had a wonderful experience. The waiter was very attentive without being a nuisance. We enjoyed the salsa and the Happy Hour margaritas. We ordered the Fajitas for 2 and were very pleased with the presentation and flavor. There was so much food, we took home leftovers for a second meal. The facility is... More

I am very sorry to make this review, but the last two times I have been to this Armadillo location, it has been dirty and the food comes out of the kitchen very cold, like it was prepared ahead of time and had been sitting around in heating trays. This place used to be one of my favorite places to... More

It has been several years since we have dined at, "The Armadillo." Not much has changed. Nice dining room. Small Patio for outside dining / drinks. The menu is still large and varied. Service is good. Their Rice has a little more flavor, than many restaurants in the area. Our waitress was new, but very nice and well trained. With... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant last Saturday. The salsa is always excellent and our meal were outstanding. My husband had the burrito, relleno, tostado combo and I had the chicken enchiladas with jalapeno cream sauce. When the food came, I noted that mine was not very hot. We mentioned this to the waiter who was quite attentive... More

This was the first time I have been to an Armadillo restaurant in years. The staff was very friendly and service was good. I had the combo with chili Rellenos and beef enchilada with a side of green chili. The chili Rellenos looked more like an enchilada. I wasn't sure which was which until I cut into one. Both were...

The Armadillo used to be one of my favorites. The portions keep getting smaller and the prices bigger. I got my usual beef and bean chimi. It was very small, hardly any beef and almost all bean, no cheese. It was not any better than the frozen kind you can buy in the store. I ordered a margarita, and it... More
