Decent Food, Good Service

This Armadillo's has been a popular Mexican restaurant for many years, since approximately 1970 according to the menu. The service was very good; our waiter took good care of us and kept our drinks filled and checked on us frequently throughout our meal service. Portions were large and most of... read more

We visit here every time we can! This time was no exception. The food was delicious and the service great. Can't wait until we are in the area again.

And the food is good too! Great place in my old hometown that I visited with friends, on their recommendation. I have to say it was a good call because the food was good the drinks were great and the atmosphere was very nice next time I'm in my old stomping grounds I'll be back!

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 top notch - with unique and delicious... 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
