Quiet (for the most part) Italian place to eat well, and enjoy life

Good food, really great service and friendly staff. There was no hurry, but staff was always there, just out of sight. There was quite a selection to pick from, and with a group of 8 there were lots of plates to look at, and smell. If I was lucky, I got to taste a few as well!

We also love their Bruschetta and this time we got a dish with Chicken, Pesto with some Green Chiles in it and Pasta that was out of this... More

I worked here in college and still eat here regularly. The food quality is always consistent and excellent! It's a mix of Italian meets Tex-Mex of the southwest. I haven't ever eaten anything that I didn't like, so it is always so hard to order! I have so many favorites! This is the same family that also owns Caprock, another... More

While I have only tried a few entrees at Orlando's the ones I have tried were excellent. The pasta dishes are hot and tasty. The pizzas are also very generous. Especially the ones with jalapenos. Ask for fresh diced tomato sprinkled on after cooking and you have a special treat.

We have been long time customers of Orlando's. The food used to be fresh and tasty whether dining in or delivery. The last few times we ate Orlando's, the magic was gone. It seems lately they have cut corners while raising prices...no bueno! Salads that were fresh and appetizing have been sad and soggy. Meat sauce has gone greasy. Please... More

I ordered the sausage burger and i have to say that it far exceeded my expectations! The food here is always good, reasonably priced, and arrives quickly. The service was great too. I plan to go back soon!

Very dirty and bad service The lasagna was the worse I've ever ate Mostly sauce that tasted like a can of crushed tomatoes.

Oh wow. This place is awesome. I had lasagne and my son had spaghetti. Both were very good! We had the Mafia Queso appetizer. Was soooo good! But it's huge! Couldn't eat it all. Garlic bread is to die for. We had lunch and didn't need to eat supper that night! Yumm!
