Was looking for a place to start off our stay in Amarillo and found this place with good reviews. Wow wow wow!! Delicious! Erica was our waiter. She greeted us with a smile and gave us great direction on the menu. I had truck tacos with skinny meat. So much flavor spicy? YES! But oh so good with a good... More

We always stop at Joe Taco when traveling through Amarillo. Happened upon it a few years ago and now we always stop there. They always have something new on the menu to order and we are always pleased. Love this place and we can have our dog out on the patio. They bring her a cold bowl of water.

Met friends for supper. Everyone ordered a different entree and everyone agreed their's was extremely too salty (seasoning salts). Conversation with friends was difficult due to loud,obnoxious yelling (not talking). It was only 6:00pm. Not enjoyable like it use to be.

The food is fantastic, a great variety. The different types of salsa and chips they deliver to your table before the meal, can fill you up. The food is worth waiting for. The bar has great service. They even have live bands on the patios. The only bad thing about this place is the parking. Great choice!

My husband & I were staying in Amarillo for the night and were referred here by a local for dinner. She said her favorite is the stuffed avocado so I felt that's what I should try. I was not disappointed. It was so delicious! Hubby ordered the taco tour and said it was also great. We ordered cocktails with dinner.... More

I have tried most Mexican restaurants in Amarillo and I'm starting to think this may be the best of the bunch. The food is consistently tasty, service has always been good, the prices are very reasonable and they have the best frozen margaritas in town. It's rare to find a great one for about $3 and they always taste the... More

Had lunch there with a friend. Got there after 1:00. Waiter got to the table timely. We ordered Nachos. 1 hour later we still didn't have our food. Waiter kept telling us the cook was behind. There was only one other occupied table in the room. Won't go back. Wait too long and food was just average.
