Menu was slightly different than average. Food slightly above average. Still will not be my "have to go to" place but will go back. I also tend not to give 5's so other people will probably give it a 5

The food is the best Mexican Food in Amarillo you should try the rejanno and enchilada on the lunch menu. My favorite is the "Manjar" if you are hungry, my wife loves the "Matamoros". The atmosphere is great and the service is outstanding. I suggest you ask for Lynn when you go in, he is the best.

The beef medallions and shrimp dinner is excellent. Also good are the papas (potato casserole). And the regular Mexican dishes such as enchiladas also are good.

Lane was our service and he was on top of everything! Our drinks were never empty, and neither were our chips. Which we delicious and still warm both times he brought... More

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in town. I try to stop here when ever I am in town. There are a lot of good Tex-Mex restaurants in town but I always end up here.

Decent house margarita on the small side, wife's hand shaken 1820 a LOT bigger, somewhat better. Sangria a hit, drink that. Beans mediocre (flavorless and "lardy") , rice good, excellent chile rellenos, decent tamale, edible enchilada. All in all, in between 3 and 4, depending on your tastes. The dip trio had 3 pretty good dips, liked them all especially... More

This was a week day so the restaurant was not crowded although they did have several birthday celebrations goin on. Atmosphere is pleasant and relaxing. Our waiter provided very good service and kept the chips/salsa... More

Randomly chose the restaurant because of Trip Advisor reviews, and very happy with the choice! The restaurant is beautiful inside, and the food presented well. I had the Matamoro plate-beef enchilada, sour cream chicken enchilada, and chile relleno. Each one was completely different and delicious. Prices are very reasonable, and the menu variety is quite large. It was hard to... More
