“Excellent Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

I'm not much of Mexican food eater however I was very impressed with this place. The service was fabulous from the moment you enter as they immediately sit a plate of hot salsa chips with a mild and hot sauce to accompany it. I've eaten there several times in the last week and each time the food and service was on point. The décor and music in the background gives you the feel you are in Mexico. I ordered the beef chimichanga and my date ordered nachos and a combination plate (taco, burrito, enchilada). The prices are reasonable and the portion sizes are good.

“Great service, reasonable, nut free”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

My email, reservation call and wait staff were friendly and knowledgeable about ensuring a nut free meal for us. We definitely recommend Armando's. Good portion size and tasty. (We don't do desserts anywhere but home with a nut allergy, but they had 1 dessert with nuts).

“Good food, and great catering”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Used these guys to cater my wife's 40th birthday this summer. The staff was extremely helpful with the ordering process and delivery. The guest all raved about how good the food was. We have since been to the restaurant a couple times and were extremely satisfied. The beef burritos are awesome!

“Real Mexican food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

I have been coming in here about once or twice a year for over 30 years. You may ask why I don't come more often. That's because there are numerous good Mexican restaurants in this area and It's easy to run out of time and money. I have been pleased each time, but with one exception. Don't eat the mole. It tastes like chocolate water. Thin with no taste. Every thing else is good. Service is good and the restaurant does have some atmosphere. Plenty parking in the rear or just across the street. Prices are reasonable.
