We were driving around doing the TripAdvisor thing and decided to try this place. We're were early for dinner (430PM), so there wasn't much going on. Based on experience at most other Mexican restaurants, we decided to split Pork Carnitas. The we got a couple surprises. The portions were normal (not huge like most Mexican restaurants) so splitting the Carnitas... More

The carnitas were really good and the server was very attentive throughout the meal. The restaurant is in an old granary and pleasant inside. They do need to change their music to a little more upbeat as it was a bit depressing.

We sat outside on the patio. The food is very good. I had spinach enchiladas and my spouse had the pork tamales, both entrees were very good. This is the third time we have dined there in the last few years.

My favorite dish is the carnitas plate. The pork is roasted, not stewed. Their side dishes are very good. Their atmosphere is great and their service is very good.

Salsa was OK. Seemed to have too many staff members in relation to restaurant size. Prices on higher end. Tortilla soup definitely home made. Main dish had plenty of food but wasn't particularly memorable.

The portions are small and overpriced. The fajitas don't come out sizzling and you pay $16 for just a handful of onions, meat and green peppers. The waitress son was running around pretending to throw up. She tried to get him to stop but he would just run around. You leave hungry and dissatisfied! Plus it's located away from downtown.

We keep our fajitas sizzling and our prices low, Kathi, but we're sorry to see you weren't impressed! Our staff is always as warm and attentive as possible, and what you describe does not sound like us. Sincerely, The Amelia's family More

We love to eat here but finally stopped going because the service was so bad. You can wait forever to get served, they are not overly nice and then plan to wait for the meal.

This family owned place has been a place for a quality meal in a homey atmosphere for generations. It's also an after work watering hole for locals.

Amelia's set a new low in customer service. Not only was the service incredibly slow (1 1/2 hours waiting for food) but the owners were very rude when we queried about our order. The plus was that the food was good, but the margaritas are way overpriced.

We were coming in for drinks and asked politely if we could sit on the deck. James told us absolutely not and that he is " trying to get rid of people who want to sit on the deck" and that the deck will remain closed until at least May. He doesn't want people who just want to sit outside... More
