I can't say anything bad about this place. Not sure where people leaving bad reviews on this place actually ate but it wasn't at Amanda's. Either that or they are looking for a freebie. The portions were huge, especially for us Europeans. When my husband...More

We used to go here weekly and loved their steak tacos, then they had closed down to remodel and revise their menu; I can honestly say this is now the worst Mexican food I have ever had. I will never go again.

Had coupons and found food to be equal to most of the larger Mexican restaurants. Chips and salsa tasty. Generous portions. Good choices that are reasonably priced. Family oriented with courteous waiters and waitresses. Nothing stands out over others.

First time here and it was very good. Our server Lexy was helpful and friendly. We had chicken fajitas and carnitas. Both were very good. The rice and beans could have been warmer. Chips and salsa were quickly served.

Retirement Party for 85. Plenty of food. Plenty of margaritas. Waitstaff omnipresent. Manager exchanged days off to oversee event. $500 well spent.

Had a wonderful meal here a couple nights ago. We were able to sit outside and watch the sun go down over the mountains. The dinner was just fantastic. The service was only so so but wouldn't keep me from returning next time we're in...More
