    Awesome experience. Beautiful, light and airy atmosphere. Food was delicious. Very accommodating as we had our 2 year old with us and she does best in a booth. Our waiter was delightful. Food was served quickly and hot.

    The food was amazing, the energy and aesthetics of the place were outstanding. However, our waitress sucked. Maybe one refill in the hour and a half we were there, we had to physically go get the water pitcher ourselves from the counter to fill up our own drinks because our waitress barely checked on us. Overall would come again, just would wish for a better service.

    I think we picked a bad day. We went Cinco de Mayo, and the flies took over our table on the inside. Spent time swatting flies the entire time until we decided to take it to go. General Manager was very kind and apologetic. Waiter...not so kind and we tipped him extremely well since our meal was complimentary. Experience wasn't so good. Food was mediocre.

    Everything was phenomenal. We had a great server, asked for his recommendations on food, took his advise and both meals were excellent. Also got dessert and it was great. We ordered drinks, meal, and dessert and were in and out in less than 45 minutes.

    Service was slow, drinks were not good, food was good. This place was amazing when it opened but slowly has become less desirable on every visit. I know labor is tough in this area right now but its moving in the wrong direction, getting worse not better.

    Used to recommend Mas Amor left and right for good Mexican food in Hickory. After last night, not sure if I want to give it another try. Wife got the Queso-Birria Tacos, I got the Birria Enchiladas, The Birria was brown, same with the consume cup. It tasted like pork roast with flavorless gravy. Birria, especially the consume should always be red or at the least have a reddish tint. I let it go because hey, I'm up for something new if it taste good - it tasted awful. The Tequila flights which I used to LOVE have been downgraded, instead of them coming with mini cucumbers that are hollowed out and filled with Chamoy and rimmed with Tajin, they just give you two Tajin covered limes :( . Seems Mas Amor is headed in a cheap, fast paced direction. For the price that should NOT be the case. We frequented Mas Amor last year, moved to California for 9 months and come back to a total change of one of our favorite spots. Probably won't be returning sadly as my wife and I used to love this place.

    Restaurant was virtually empty and we were sat at a very small table for 4 instead of a larger table. They did eventually move us. Because they leave the bar door open there were flies everywhere and it was hard to enjoy the meal because we were swatting flies. It is kind of gross to have flies landing on your food when you are trying to eat. It is also very noisy even with few people in the restaurant. The music was extremely loud. I usually love this restaurant and always give the food rave reviews, but the flies ruined it for us all.

    We had a great evening at Mas Amor.Our server was informative and efficient. The menu is extensive and our meals were delicious with generous servings. The ambience is light and very pleasant- the live wall is especially stunning. We certainly will return, and will recommend Mas Amor to our friends.

    This is a Tex Amex restaurant and the menu reflects this. The ambience and the music definitely do not. The music was blaring so loudly that it was hard to maintain a conversation. Service was slow and they missed the opportunity to sell more drinks by taking forever to deliver the first one, and never even coming back to try to sell a second. The food was fine, but not great given the high price. I will say it was plentiful. As for flavor and quality, I could have gotten as good as or better and almost any other Mexican restaurant in town. Overall, I was rather diaappointed and a, unlikely to go back.

    Fajitas were great. My wife’s pork she ordered was way to smoky or salty. It was hard to tell which but she wasn’t able to eat it. All of her food on her plate had the same issue so it was a very disappointing visit for her.
