Quirky fusion in ambience and food – I enjoy dining at Spaghetti Western. I highly recommend the specials for the day when making your dinner selection. The food is creative and blends Mexican and Italian flavors admirably. The combinations are downright unconventional, but sure do satisfy. You have to try the Italian nachos at least once, but bring friends to share the bounty because it's a heaping platter.
Good Food, Horrible Service – Good portions and great taste. Sat down at the bar for lunch with a group and had the worst service from the bartender throughout the entire meal. She rolled her eyes when we asked for bread before the meal and had a negative demeanor the whole time.
Nice Atmosphere – I've eaten here with friends a couple of times. The food is good but the service is shaky--we've had good service and bad service. The portions are huge, I will generally share of take home leftovers.
Awesome Food - Superb Value - great neighborhood vibe – We're regulars and every time we eat at Spaghetti Western everyone loves it! The food is consistently delicious (I love Shrimp Scampi w/Artichokes and tomatoes) and the shrimp are GIANT fat and juicy. How do they provide such good grub so cheap? The house salads are made with all green, yes i said all GREEN healthy lettuce and an addictive vinegrette dressing and feta cheese. We went again this past Saturday night about 8pm and the place was full but there always happens to be a table waiting for us! My date had the raviolli but I kept tasting bites because their tomato sauce is simply da Bomb. The wait staff is mature but in a hip way and always friendly and super efficient. Keep it up Spaghetti Western!
Not up to the Hype – Found the reviews misleading. Service and vibe was good - food was not. People must be coming here for some other reason but it sure isn't for the culinary qualities.
The Theme was really cool. – My girlfriend and I went on a Tuesday. It was very ez going. Good Food, Good Price you can eat here for a fist full of dollars, Nice Wait staff. Order the House wine (Merlot). The menu had plenty almost too much to select from. I would recommend this for dinner. Sure there are carbs but carbs get a bad wrap. I do wish they had some whole wheat selections.
A Winner! – Love the seafood lasanga. Service was great, and the prices weren't bad. I would def. go again.
Very casual, kid friendly place.
Geriatric Service – If you want to really feel like you are in old western cafe this is the place. Not just the decor- but most of the customers there were about 60+ drinking it up at the bar. Service was terrible, and very very slow. I went during my lunch break and there was 1 waitress for the entire restaurant. Food was decent, nothing to rave about. Will not go back.
Delicious, inexpensive and excellent service – We love Spaghetti Western! Our 8-year-old gets her own personal little pizza and my fave is the Chicken pasta with artichokes! There is something on the menu for everyone and it's a great restaurant for kids. Service is prompt and friendly and the bread is to die for!
Really yummy food! Great service! – we are visiting from Portland, Oregon, so every dinner is a risk! We did our research and needed a low-key, kid friendly place (we have a 1-year-old, and an 81-year-old in our party!). We all enjoyed everything! Food - yummy. This isn't fru-fru Italian. This is kind of Americanized, fattening, yummy comfort food. We all raved. My husband forgot his phone there, so we may HAVE to go back once more before heading back home!
