Chips and salsa are always a great start and the smoky hot salsa is really good. The entrees came out nice and hot. My wife enjoyed her sangria and I had a good Mexican beer. If you ask for whole black beans instead of refried, be prepared for them to put cheese on the beans. Our server was a but... More

Been there almost every month for the last 4 months. Excellent Mexican food and reasonable prices, and great drinks to pick from. In or outdoor seating, misters are on if too hot, service is excellent. Love this place.........

I tried Nando's and liked it. My favorite items were: guacamole - tastes like the kind of guac I grew up on in El Paso, beans - taste fresh and not full of lard, rice - simple and fresh recipe, not loaded with MSG, corn tortillas - some of the best, most flavorful tortillas I have eaten. I would like... More

Nandi's was recommended as one of the best. So my wife and I had dinner. The tortilla chips where fresh and warm. They offered two salsa's one mild the other hot. Both had good flavor. The mild was indeed mild and the hot was just right (I like spicy hot when it has flavor and Nandi's had good flavor). I... More

This was typical Mexican with middle-of-the-road quality The portions were very large Modify that by saying: just because there was more chicken in the chimichanga does not mean it was better quality ! Table chips are OK - salsas are both good

We go here at least once a week. The Happy Hour menu (bar and patio only) has many delicious items. Try the steak quesadilla. It is huge and so, so, SO tasty! The Mexican pizza easily serves 2-4 people-it is full of tender chicken. We also order the sliders and split them-you get 6 tasty burgers. This restaurant gives you... More

We started going when they first opened up teh Gilbert location, now they opened one up in Chandler (Close to work for me) This restaurant is a must, servers, hostess and manager are so friendly. We've made this a Tuesday regular and we meet up with friends and have dinner and... More

This is one of the best Happy Hour restaurants I've been too !! Quite a few food and drink selections.....The portions are large, the cocktails generous and the prices are great !! They don't skimp here !! Ordered 3 appetizers for 4 people....complimentary chips and salsa and 2 rounds of cocktails....everyone left very satisfied !!

Love Nando's! Since I moved from California I have been looking for a good sit down Mexican restaurant. I've tried all of them in the area and been disappointed most of the time. Nando's is excellent! Not greasy, flavorful and authentic. The chips are light and the salsa is great! I pretty much order the same thing every time since... More

We have been going to Nando's for a few years now. We typically go to the one in Mesa off Baseline and Val Vista, but we like the one on Dobson and the 202 fwy now because it is not as busy. The food is REALLY good! They do not skimp on the cheese!!! My husband loves the fajitas....one of... More
