The food is good, but not fantastic.. You get free chips and salsa. Smothered Burrito has a nice sauce. Service has been good to excellent. Not my favorite place, but I never leave feeling let down. when I don't want to travel very far, I usually go here.

Unfortunately the Armadillo's last day is today, June 26th. They have lost their lease and will not be relocating. If you've been a customer of theirs for as many years as we have, you know they are going to be missed. They had excellent food and great service! - Good luck to all!

This is hands down the BEST Mexican food restaurant I have EVER been to. There are no words to describe how amazing the food is, it is unlike anywhere. It's like there is a certain something extra in everything - sweet flaky goodness in their chimichanga's, a hint of sweetness in the beans and rice. You cannot leave even a... More

Whenever we get the chance, we try to eat here. The food is amazing. I still order stuff that hasn't been on the menu in years, and the staff still makes sure I get what I want. Service was good, too. Our drinks were always full, as were the chips and salsa.

The Armadillo in Fort Collins closed and my sweetheart heart was VERY sad about that. Today after we were visiting the Denver area, we ran into the Armadillo in the Thornton area! This resturaunt has the best Burrito Supreme!

I met a number of former students here from many years ago for a catch up lunch. We were there to talk and catch up far more than to eat, however the food caught my attention! I had the Burritos Supreme with the shredded beef and it was GREAT! The beef was tender, the spice was perfect and the presentation... More

This Armadillo's has been a popular Mexican restaurant for many years, since approximately 1970 according to the menu. The service was very good; our waiter took good care of us and kept our drinks filled and checked on us frequently throughout our meal service. Portions were large and most of each entree tasted like the food was made fairly fresh.... More

And the food is good too! Great place in my old hometown that I visited with friends, on their recommendation. I have to say it was a good call because the food was good the drinks were great and the atmosphere was very nice next time I'm in my old stomping grounds I'll be back!

I always rate restaurants compared to the class they are in. So McDonalds would never rate against Denny's or Snooze for breakfast. That also means that four stars doesn't mean the best Eggs Benedict in town - but very good in its class. This Armadillo is really good for breakfast. The buffet is top notch - with unique and delicious... More
