I guess if you have visited any Amarillo restaurants in Finland, you wouldn't be surprised what you'll get here. So...expectations met...still I think that the meals are a bit overpriced compared to what you get. So...if you like finn-mexican food, not a BAS choise at all. Service has been always friendly.

Amarillo is one of those famous chains of restaurant in Finland. It has descent price levels and the food is good and generous portions. All you can expect from TEX-Mex. I always enjoy going back there whenever I'm in Finland.

The food is just OK and the price is a bit high for what it is. The burgers are decent but it is not a necessary place to visit in Jyvaskyla.

A good, chain-type restaurant with lots of options to please most people. I have eaten here a few times now and have always had an enjoyable meal. There are a few veggie options, and the fajitas could probably be made vegan.

Went with 6 persons (2 children). The service was friendly and helpful (child and English menu). Quick service and the nachos are a tip. Food was good and we had a good time with family.

This time three of us went to Amarillo's, Jyväskylä. At first we were told that there is a 30 minutes waiting time for food. Ok, but after our foods arrived, there were one order, that was wrong. So two get it right and the third one gets the 30 minutes waiting time, again. LOL! Unfortunately the food at Amarillo's is... More

Chain restaurant that offers standard menu (burgers etc. with seasonal specialties). You will not be disappointed but not surprised either.

Fast service and good place for big family. Menu has been shrinking but still wide enough. Recommendations for those who are looking basic tex mex with reasonable price

Nice bar, caters for families with young children. Seating outside, music in some places was too loud. Beer served in large iced mugs! Food very nice, loved the chipotle mole side! They made a brilliant Cosmopolitan cocktail too. Nacho's were also brilliant.

This is the kind of place you go to have something "safe and familiar". The food is always good and tasty, but as said in the title, never surprisingly good.
