I dined with a live long friend at this place and I found the food pretty good. I would certainly return for the food. The drinks (margarita's were diluted) and just didn't taste good. The chips and salsa was also very good. Service was on a par to what I would expect but the disappointing aspect were the drinks. I... More

We found Serrano's in downtown Chandler on Arizona Ave. to be above average among the many Mexican restaurants in the Valley. The service was outstanding. The atmosphere was relaxing. I had a Chile Relleno and a Chicken Enchilada while my wife had a Beef Chimichunga. The portions were not too large and the food was very good. The margaritas were... More

The service at Serrano's is outstanding: very prompt and friendly. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very pleasant and relatively quiet. Serrano's reminded me of the good, family-owned restaurants you could find more often in the 1970's. I had a pork machaca and the pork was delicious. The other ingredients all seemed very fresh. I was in town on business,... More

Food was excellent, but lacked a little in style. Ate in the bar area, traveling by myself, and service was OK, nothing to write home about. The margarita was really good but on the small side.

Having heard that this long-time favorite restaurant in downtown Chandler had been renovated, we arrived for lunch on a Saturday very much looking forward to the experience. Both of us ordered quesadillas which were okay but less what we were expecting. Perhaps our expectations were at fault, but the restaurant did not appear to be renovated. In fact, we thought... More

We arrived at an off-hour (3:30pm mid-week), so were seated immediately. Our server explained the menu, answered our multitude of questions, and made excellent recommendations. She was extremely good at her job and made our entire experience way more fun. We loved the salsa and pinto bean dip, which we had with added to all of the dishes we ordered.... More

My favorite mexican restaurant. Sometimes busy, but for good reason. World's best bean dip and salsa, huge portions at a very reasonable price. Food is authentic mexican and very well presented.
