We overall had a very nice time. It was Easter Sunday and they were very busy. The hostess needs some fine tuning. We had reservations, which I stated in my notification of our arrival. The hostess was giggling and talking to some man and 4 times repeating myself of "yes, we have reservationsm " she finally told us to sit down and we would be seated whenever they could get us a table.
The food was outstanding, as was our waiter.

Food was great - had prime rib and another had teriyaki chicken. Service was perfect. Only complaint about Angus is it's music.... ugh... sometimes the cowboy music can be too loud and too much... the booths are conducive for quiet, semi-private meals... except for the music... which is tiresome, annoying, and repetitive. And frequently TOO LOUD to ignore or talk over.

Our meal was very good, but our server was extremely rude. She did not stop by enough to see what we needed and when she finally did stop by, she asked if we wanted desert and we stated we needed more ice tea and a to go box to which she stated, I asked if you wanted dessert. We all thought that was really rude and we had to wait a long time for our ice tea refills and the ti go box. Not a great experience!

Great service our waitress Alexis had three tables seat at the same time so the manager brought our bread over so we wouldn’t have to wait. The staff really help each other it was extremely busy but their teamwork made everything still come out in a timely manner. Definitely one of the best Black Angus we drive past the El Cajon location to go there.

The meals for our entire group were excellent. I ordered 11 oz Fillet Mig'non butterflied medium well and was superbly cooked. The au gratin potatoes were delicious and the steamed vegetables were not over cooked. The dessert was appropriate for the occasion and the ambiance for my birthday made it a very festive celebration. The customer service skills of our server were excellent. We left looking forward to future visits.

Great service. Fast, accurate and fun without being obstrusive.
Steaks, baked potatoes, salad, drinks always good and good value for price.
We come to BA for the food, but also because of the great high back booth tables that give us privacy while we talk and dine.

My family and I love BlackAngus for the good food at very reasonable prices; and feel that they have the best booths for comfort and privacy. However, we also notice that they haven’t kept up to date on their decor, especially the rest rooms. Time for an overhaul, please don’t change the menu!

I expected it to be much more of a steak house. The steaks were thin and cheap. I could have went to outback and received better. The sides were small, I think I had maybe 4 pieces of broccoli on my plate. this was my second time there, only because I forgot how poor my first experience was. I would not return for a free meal. this does not live up to having the title of "steakhouse".

I ordered Fillet Mignon medium well and that is what I received, slightly pink in the middle. The twice cooked mashed potatoes were exactly what I expected and the broccoli was perfectly steamed and melted in my mouth. The dessert was also included in our meal. I was sufficient for my wife and I. Black Angus is now on my list of fine dining restaurants.

Made a special reservation for Valentine's day and 36th birthday.
Reservation was scheduled for 730pm we arrived ten minutes!!
We did not get seated until 8:58
Ok no worries it's a major holiday.
We place our order server brings my beverage right away my wife did not receive her beverage for 20 minutes ok again we are trying to enjoy our self and it's a busy night (Valentine's day) no worries we press on after being seated for over a hour our food has yet arrived. I started to notice other tables that have arrived after us are eating there meals...
Wife says to me am I not special ?
Ok (not good) !!
I very nice to the server and try to figure out why we are not getting service I ask mam when you bring my wife her glass of wine can you also bring me a glass of water ....I get this look like I'm a hassle.....wow
Now the romance and enjoyment of our night is fading fast as my wife is getting very frustrated.....food finally arrived one hour and forty five minutes later the portions were very small we ate our over priced small portion special occasion dinner in one tenth of the time it took to receive it.
Now steak was tasty and cooked very well so I guess it wasn't a complete loss.
Unfortunately for the value and service I will not recommend to anyone or don't see any reason to ever go through that experience again.
Very unfortunate as a cattle rancher from the Midwest I prefer to only eat guilty beef not very good choices in the area to satisfy my diet .
I expected a far better experience than what we received.
Sorry sorry sorry is all I heard from the staff . I don't complain about situation they were very aware of what was happening and yet no action was delivered to make us feel as valued customer...
I give this establishment and our experience a 0-1star rating
Thank you
Mr.Willey

Overall was pretty good. Server Anthony seemed to be a person relatively new to table serving. He did not seem comfortable with the friendly interaction so often experienced in a Bulls Eye booth.We did not notice until we got home that he did not return our discount lunch card. We often meet our senior friends at this restaurant and this will not affect our desire to keep coming. We will get another card the next time.

I've always like the Black Angus. The steaks are always good, better than most every day restaurants and sometimes better than nice restaurants that aren't steak houses. There is always too much food, a nice variety of choices from good seafood to girthy steaks and lots of veggies to choose from.
The steak soup was definitely too salty, but everything else was good.
