We wanted to grab a quick dinner but the service was INCREDIBLY SLOW! The manager finally came over and took our drink order. The restaurant was only at about 30% capacity. When our food finally came, it was only slightly warm. The flour tortillas were cold and crumbly. We used to come here all of the time but hadn't been... More

Love the taste of Tumbleweed but quite expensive. 2 dinners with non-alcoholic drinks is minimum $35 for us. Would love to eat there more often but do not because of price.

I love the chips and salsa, and the queso dip is good too. A unique blend of steakhouse and Mexican style foods give lots of options to choose from.

Last reviewed this place in 2013, and quite frankly, it has gone down hill. The have tried some new menu items to be more current, and some works. Dinner here was fine: food was excellent portions and spicy like expected. Service was adequate - they got the right food to the table, but not really sharp on service. The BIG... More

Food's okay. Service okay. The big downfall of this place is that they allow customers to smoke in there. I didn't think anybody did that any more.

We enjoyed a nice meal with a very good waitress.The Double-Grilled Chicken Burrito was very good and was big enough for both of us. I tried their fried wings and found them a little small but very tasty.The place was very busy but everyone was being taken care of nicely.

Food was served promptly with manager's help. Had to hunt down server for drink refill. A little crowded a family with small kids making noise made it hard to carry on a normal conversation.
