Fast service and good place for big family. Menu has been shrinking but still wide enough. Recommendations for those who are looking basic tex mex with reasonable price

Nice bar, caters for families with young children. Seating outside, music in some places was too loud. Beer served in large iced mugs! Food very nice, loved the chipotle mole side! They made a brilliant Cosmopolitan cocktail too. Nacho's were also brilliant.

This is the kind of place you go to have something "safe and familiar". The food is always good and tasty, but as said in the title, never surprisingly good.

We visit this place quite many times in a year and even at evenings, service is quick and friendly. Try to take places near the bar counter to ensure you don't be forgotten!

Went for burgers in the evening. Placing order was quick and food also arrived quite rapidly. However getting the check too some time since personnel seemed to vanish. Average chain food in Finland. If you are into american / mexican food, try American Diner instead.

Amarillo offers nothing really Mexican at all. The food is good if you are looking for something other than kebabs or other casual dining places. Don't expect authentic Mexican cuisine, but the food is always good.

Amarillo is a very popular texmex-restaurant. On fridays and saturdays it is best to make a reservation or you'll wait like hour or two before you can even order food. Their menu is huge and there are normal tortilllas and fajitas, but many many more interesting dishes. Start with Muchos Nachos or Sampler Plate and You'll get the idea what's... More
