We gave this place a good review in December, but this time we went back on a Wednesday night and got a surprise. It seems that Wednesday is the half-price wine night (for full bottles less than $100). The food was excellent and the kitchen still ready to make minor changes to the entree if you wanted some little addition to your plate. All our friends loved their entrees, by the way.
The extensive wine list had some "real buys at half price". The winner of the night was a 2004 Texas Chianti (honest!) bought for about 2/3 the internet price of the 2008. If we had known that we would have tied bandanas around our faces and shot up the town as we left - (it's the expected behavior of bandits). :-)

Thank You!!!!!
Wine Wednesdays have become a very popular promotion for us, and it provides us with the perfect opportunity to introduce and educate about wine at a reasonable cost to our guests. I remember you guys. You had the Chianti and the 2004 Zinfandel. Can't wait to see you again. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a positive review for others to see. Cheers!!!!

This was a wonderful surprise! We stopped in Amarillo on the way to Denver and it popped up on Yelp. You will NOT be disappointed. Loved the ambiance, service, food- seriously everything. If you ever find yourself in Amarillo, make a reservation and eat here. I promise you won't be disappointed! Thanks Cody for great service. We'll be back the next time we're passing through.

we were traveling through Amarillo to Denver for a family obligation. After asking friends and checking Trip Advisor, we settled on Macaroni Joes. It was a little Tuscany in the Panhandle - what a wonderful place. The decor was lovely, the staff was so friendly and welcoming, and the food was delicious. We shared a dessert - the bread pudding, and were stuffed. Watch out for the Margaritas! Definately worth a visit on a special occasion.

This restaurant was recommended to us because of the excellent Italian food and the unique atmosphere. They were right. The menu had an excellent variety of Italian food. The wine list was very good. Our group had lasagne, tilapia and veal Marsala. All three were very good. The desserts were very affordable and tasty. I would strongly recommend Macaroni Joes for a quiet evening of excellent dining.

Cari,
First of all, thank you. We are so happy you chose us to spend this most important of dates at our restaurant. Second of all, thank you. Not everyone that has a good experience has the generosity to take time from their busy schedule to share the experience with the always growing online experience. We can't wait to see you guys at your 20th anniversary and every week in between. Thanks again. MJs
