“A definite THUMBS UP!!!”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

We heard about Armondo's from some locals we met playing golf at PGA West. So glad we took their advice! Really good food in a quaint, cozy little "mexican dive" on El Paseo. Menu covers everything Mexican but doesn't get crazy with options, and some of the best salsa I've had.

“Great salsa”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

Good margaritas, salsa, chips, and guacamole. I had the shrimp and squid fajitas. While the shrimp was tasty, the calamari was not great. Very greasy, too. The servings are huge, so it's a good value.

“Nice surprise on El Paseo...”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Walking along El Paseo and who would have ever thought there was a down-home feel to a bar and grill on this glitzy street, and without paying an arm and a leg? We enjoyed draft beers and shared a huge plate of nachos with chicken, and beans, plenty of jalapeno peppers, avocado, etc. and it was delicious, while sitting at comfortable place and eventually paying a very reasonable price. Would come back when in the neighborhood.
