“As good as the pictures look - don't miss!!!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

Looked for the best tex mex for father's day and found it. Our party was raised on southwestern fare and proclaimed this the best they have had!!! The next day they were wistful that no other mexican restaurant will now measure up. We will always stop here when traveling thru amarillo.
Super hot plates, gorgeous presentation, beautiful interior decor with fountains murals. .what's not to like. Professional service and just delicious food. I could go on but will add a couple of pix instead. Dont miss thisbplace

“Nice Mexican Restaurant”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

This a very nice Mexican Restaurant which we will return to sometime in the future. There is plenty of free parking in front. Our waiter provided us with good service and we enjoyed the food. Although even thought it was good we have had better in Amarillo.

“What fun”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

We stopped by here for dinner as we were passing through Amarillo. What a tasty and beautifully presented meal!!!!!! Jasmine O. was an informed and attentive server, and we appreciated the manager, John, stopping by our table to welcome us. If you are in Amarillo, it is worth your time to stop and enjoy.

“Good food and service!”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

We ate here twice over a long weekend trip to Palo Duro. They have traditional tex mex as well as some food that the owner grew up eating in a traditional home. Both times the waitstaff was very attentive. The second time we ate there, they said it would take a little more time for our appetizer so we decided to skip the appetizers. But what was nice is the manager came up and said if changed our minds and decided we wanted them, he'd comp that or a dessert for each of us. We were too full for that as well but to me, it's the offer that counts. I was very pleased with the service and the food, which is why we ate there twice. Good place! Also of note, both times we came in looking a little worse for the wear as we'd been hiking all day in Palo Duro and no one looked at us funny or treated us differently and there were many people there dressed nicely. So I appreciated that as well because we were bone tired and just wanted to get some food and go clean up and collapse. When we go back, we'll eat here again.

“Safe Bet Good Food”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

We ate here on a trip thru Amarillo. Pretty good food. Portions were average, staff very helpful, prices average. I ordered the carnitas taco plate. Meat was good, not overly generous portions, heavy on the rice and refried beans. A nice place to have a decent meal.
