By far the best food I have ever eaten in my entire life! – I especially recommend it all! The happiest my tummy has ever felt and my mouth has been thanking me too! Mark Follett and his fabulous team of tex mex professionals makes going out to eat more fun than any other restaurant I have ever been too! Its an all over FEEL GOOD inside and out experience! Thank you all for going above and beyond! Wish I lived there full time and could treat myself to Amigos on a daily basis!
Great food for a great price – I've been eating here on and off for years. I just moved back into the area and started going back. The food is excellant and the prices are even better.
Great Place for Tex-Mex – I loved the enchiladas and the freshly made chips. The Salsa is hand made and seems a little on the chunky side, but is good. This is not Pace from the jar poured into a bowl. The food is absolutely excellent. The portions are worth the price and the service outstanding. If you like Tex-Mex then this is a place you’ll have to try!
Great food, great service – I have been to the Altamonte Amigos at least 10-15 times a year for the last 6 years since moving to Altamonte and most of my experiences have been great. I think I can remember two times out of all those visits that did not meet my expectations. The food has always been great. The service is usually really good. This is probably one of two places around this area that I can always make a safe bet on. All of the surrounding restaurants are either good or terrible 100% of the time. I love the salsa, it always tastes fresh with the warm tortilla chips. This is the best salsa compared to any other Mexican restaurant around here. I recommend the Chicken Chimichanga with the queso sauce, that's my favorite and it's always great.
Not recommended – While this restaurant looks cozy and nice from outside, the dining experience was nothing like it!
My husband and I are both vegetarians and went for Cheese Enchiladas and Bean Burritos (recommended by our waiter).
The food was rather cold when it came out, the cheese inside the enchiladas not melted at all. We asked for it to be re-heated, and it was still cold inside the second time around, but too crisp and burnt in some areas.
We've eaten in many Mexican restaurants, and this one is not recommendable, and in our personal opinion, it certainly isn't Orlando's No.1!
They did take the Enchiladas off the bill.
If you love Velveeta – Velveeta is the cheese of choice at Amigos. That must be what puts the "Tex" in "Tex-Mex". My husband enjoyed the fajitas, but we both hated the salsa. It was very bland and had an odd texture.
Food worth the trip. – The decor needs sprucing up. However, the food is worth overlooking the sad worn appearance.
User review by deekayen – The whole restaurant seemed run down. Salsa was bland and watery. The booth we stat at had rips and worn off tape for rips through the fake leather that curled up and poked my legs through the whole meal.
Tex-Mex eatery serves family recipes in non-descript setting. – In Short
The globe lights decorated with bushy bandito mustaches and garish, sparkling sombreros don't add much to the decor, but the decorations can't dim the food at this family-owned Tex-Mex eatery. For an appetizer, choose either the slightly spicy bean dip (a family recipe), the creamy, slightly spicy queso dip, or a quesadilla. From there, move on to the sizzling fajitas, marinated strips of grilled beef or chicken flavored with bell peppers and onions, brought still steaming to your table with ample portions of homemade pico de gallo, guacamole, cheese, lettuce, and sour cream. The tamales, drenched in a thick, hot red sauce, are also excellent. All dishes are served with beans and rice.
