I stopped here for dinner on my recent trip to the Texas panhandle. A friend of mine recommended this place to me as he said his family ate here often. The food was delicious. I had the burrito covered in chili meat sauce and Hatch green chili sauce. Great! The chips and salsa were delicious also.

Queso Fundido as a starter dish. Wonderful and rich spinach with white cheese, mushrooms, and onions, served with flour tortillas. It was a meal in itself-plenty for two. The Chicken Lime salad was very good; again, two have shared this entre.

It's a Tex-Mex place with a little flare. The chips are thick enough to scoop the choices of hot sauce. There are a good number of make-your-own meals, such as the tacos. There are also a wide variety of meat styles, from the traditional ground beef to shredded brisket for your food choices. I go there often.

In a city with countless Mexican Restaurants these guys are in the middle. Cool location with good Architecture. Drinks are good and the chips and salsa are good. The enchiladas are the best thing on the menu. Tortilla soup is a good lunch choice. If you have not tried Joe Taco you should but don't expect too much.

We went there on probably a pretty busy evening before a 3 day weekend. The crowd was thinning out. It took us about 5 minutes before they greeted us and found a table. They gave us menus and took drink orders. The margarita came after about 5 minutes. The waitress was uninspired but it could be she was just tired.... More

Good food with friendly staff. Outdoor dinning, inside dining, quiet area with a sports screen. Great happy hour prices on drinks between 4-7pm. Cocktails included. Food is also good.

Just traveling through Amarillo and stopped here for dinner. My waiter, Riley, was very good and helped with several menu selections. I had the Grande Enchilada, vegetarian with spinach and mushrooms. It was great, as was the margarita. Very good experience.
