Our friends took us to this place. It was setup like some wing joints I frequent, you order your food at the counter then they call your number. Efficient, I don't mind that. The place was packed which can tell you their food is good. Everything was prepared and tasted well. Our friends ordered some items I wanted to come back and try later, but never made it. My only complaint was the place was packed with little room to sit. It was raining outside and I think they have a patio that unfortunately was unable to be used. I really liked this place. I recommend it for take out or a alternative to fast food.

I like going to this restaurant for lunch. It's quick and easy. The salad bar could use a few more items but the cilantro dressing is excellent. I love the plantains chips too. This is a counter-service restaurant so I'm not sure why people are complaining about the service. You serve yourself. The only thing I notice is that it sometmes takes awhile for them to clean off the tables. I recommend the taquito kit or the puntas.

Pros: cheap version of churrasco's

Cons: sometimes gets crowded during lunch

I LOVE the taquito kit at Amazon Grill. The extras are also great- the plantain chips and chimichuri sauce, and the salad with yummy dressings.

Cons: Can be crowded and lots of kids running around

The place and the atmosphere was nice and casual. But I was disappointed at the service at this location. I had a coupon, for buy one entree and get one free entree of equal or less value, that I printed from Citysearch that was valid until 12/31/2007, but the employee told me that corporate had terminated the promotion yesterday. And I just printed the coupon today (9/1/2007)!! The salad bar was good but some items (croutons) was left empty and I had to scrape salsa from the bottom of the container (at 9pm while there were at least 8 tables of customers in the restaurant).
The beef (Puntas) was not that good but tilapia was excellent.

i cannot stay away from this place!! people tell me i just need to pack my stuff and move there. i LOVE the plantain chips and cilantro dressing. the service is great, the prices are great and the margaritas and mojitoes are the best!! last night i had the chicken burger with sweet potato fries and i cannot wait to have it again. everything on the menu is so good. can you tell i love the place? thursday nights are good because they have a two piece steel drum band playing nice relaxing music. i have never seen a "burger king, trailer park" crowd at the amazon so i don't know what that other reviewer was talking about. go there, please, you will not be disappointed.

Pros: FOOD, DRINKS, PRICES, AMBIANCE, SERVICE

Cons: NONE

This is a good place for lunch, I have not been there any other time of day. My husband and I have been several times between 11 and 2pm during the week and the food was good and fresh. The salad and plaintain bar was clean and their mango salad dressing is really good. My husband can't get enough of the plaintains and cilantro salsa. I took a couple of my co-workers there for the first time last Thursday, they want to go back today.
I read the review written by the person condeming the food and the patrons dining at the establishment. I have never seen that kind of crowd or had the experience that they've had. I also have never used their restrooms. However, during the lunch hour, I have only seen professional individuals, maybe their tattooes were hidden under their suits. I truly think the place is worth a try for those who have not been.
They do kind of skimp on the size of the meat, (its kind of thin) but at lunch time, who wants any more than 8 to 10 ounces of meat. But, my coworker tried their cheeseburger and that patty was huge. I guess it depends on what you order

My favorite dish is the Amazon Chicken!!!

Amazon Grill? This restaurant is truly what I call a Houston typical restaurant. Build it and they will come. Exactly just build a restaurant that looks great from the outside and people think that the food and service is as good as the cover. Well you are wrong! This restaurant aka Cafeteria, is a joke amongst food conneiseurs. Bad food, freshness is questionable, ambience is terrible sounds like a theme park with all the people screaming talking, and kids running around. The restrooms are dirty, the service is run like a Burger King joint, and the meat served is nothing but low grade meat. This is a joke and I believe the people dining here are too. Tank Top wearing, Armpit showing, shorts wearing, beer bellied clientelle. Just by looking at the clientelle did I lose my appetitie. The food is overcooked especially the bean soup, the salad bar is disgusting, as well as the area where to fetch the plantain chips. Kids grabbing chips with their hands, eating straight from trays. Parking is terrible. cleanliness is extremely questionable. Just another Marketing Scam. If you have no taste and no class, this is the place. If you want ambience, a true enjoyment of food this is not the place.

I am sorry but this restaurant is below average. The food is ok, service is ok.... everything is simply ok. Nothing special... or very tasty!

The food here has a fresh healthy twist to south american cuisine. At Happy Hour they have a salsa/salad bar with different dressings. I personally like the cilantro dressing (it has a kick to it too). They have plantain chips that go excellent with their chimichurri sauce. The prices aren't too bad either (about $10). You order from a cashier and they bring the food out to you.

The food is very flavorful. And its nice having a change from the traditional menu. Their food has a very ethnic flavor and look to it. The only con is that I find it a bit pricey for the portion size. The portions are quite smaller than typical restaurant portions.

This place is great. All of the food is delicious...especially the s'mores!! The salad and plantanes are a great plus, since you can nibble on those while you wait for your food (which never takes long.)

Great atmosphere! Excellent food! prices are fairly reasonable considering that you get all the salad you can eat and all the banana chips you want! Tres Leches is to die for! great place for kids too!

I'm hook on their "Marisol Fish" I go there any time I can. Service is average but food and price are great. Perfect for large groups and their patio is always a fun place to hang out with friends while you eat.

I love to eat at Amazon Grill. I have been to Amazon Grill (Kirby location and Gessner location) and Americas. I first learned about South American Cuisine through Americas. It is also great place to hang out with friends for Happy Hour.

This economy sibling of Artista, Americas and Churrascos has comparable top notch South American foods at substantially lower prices. Chimichurri-seasoned beef is excellent! This is my favorite Houston restaurant! Taste and prices of the food more than make up for remote location in the middle of car park. Exceptionally attentive and helpful waitstaff. Only weak note -- and a glaring one -- is quality of cocktails. The synthetic sour mix they use is so acidic, it feels like your teeth will dissolve with the corrosive tartness. This really mars an otherwise outstanding experience; I truly wish they would use real limes / lemons instead.
