The lunch specials are really good. Try the Mexican Chicken it is always wonderful. Their fajitas have lots of meat and the food is always hot and tasty. Great service.

Kind of loud and old school , but we love the food and have for years. My husband loves the Lomo Saltado and they always are happy to adjust his order just like he likes it.

I used to frequent this restaurant a couple of times a month until I found a big bug in the salsa they served! For some reason I haven't been back since? LOL I should have notified the health department.....but figured why bother? The waitress didn't seem that surprised and brought me some fresh salsa! Had to wonder what the kitchen... More

Had a business dinner here on a week night - efficient service. Had live music from an older guy who toured with Bill Haley and the Comets back int he day. The food was good - fajitas special on WED only $8.49 (normally over $12). Outside is shabby (maybe a gas/service station many years ago) looking - but so what?

We were in Amarillo for the weekend and ate here on the recommendation of TripAdvisor. The food was excellent and the service was great.
