Honestly the worst dining experience we have ever had. We should have turned back when we arrived in the strip club like parking lot, and noticed the open sign wasn't even on. Obviously the staff was warning us from the start. When we walked inside we noticed the restaurant was huge, but there was only one other table. Our waitress sat us, and returned with very stale chips and an italian marinara tasting salsa. We discussed leaving at this point, but figured that the chips were free and things would get better. When our food arrived, we were shocked. The beans were obviously old and dehydrated with hard chunks littered throughout, the rice was flavorless. One of the plates was so poorly plated that it looked like someone in the kitchen had eaten half the rice before sending it out. The pork tamales were quite literally dried out. We attempted eating then, but soon learned only the filling was edible. Our waitress took our plates but didn't ask if we had liked our dishes, which was obvious that we didn't from the full plates that she was returning to the kitchen. We made a comment to her, and the manager was promptly brought out. He was full of excuses and explained that some people like it, some people don't. Although he took off half of our bill, we will never ever return and hope that anyone reading this will take this review seriously. Don't make the same mistake we did.

Every year my big family gets together from all over the country and heads back to a restaurant that has become somewhat of a second home. Mom and Dad with their favorite Atomic margaritas and all the little nieces and nephews with their love for "sopypillows" as they call them. The holiday cheer and the friendly faces that the staff has provided for my family is a wonderful gift that we hope to keep recieving.

Thanks Armadillo Family,

John Brooks

OMG this place is horrible. From start to finish, recycled Mexican food. The paint is peeling off the building, no one at the front door to greet you. My 12 year old burned his hand because the watier didn't bother to tell him the plate was hot, then they did nothing about it. The restroom (mens) smelled and had trash all over the floor. One of the WORST dining experiences I have ever had.

We had been in a couple of times this last summer as we love to visit Fort Collins in the summer. I swear the restaurant was almost asking for customers not to return. Poor service, long waits, restaurant was dirty. However we noticed it was under new management recently, so we decided to give it another shot. And were we amazed, as the restaurant was very clean, service was so good and we got our food in about 10 minutes. Food was hot and so good! Hats of to the new management there, you will keep our loyality. Visited on 11/01/2009 for dinner. Good job guys, keep up the good work!
