Great food and service

Another great place that my wife turned me on to. Lots of tasty options on the menu. Not to mention the great chips and salsa that they serve you upon arrival. The services is fast and friendly as well.

I'm an AZ native, I know good Mexican food. This isn't really authentic Mexican food in comparison to a couple of the best local Mexican eateries like La Canasta or Carolina's. I have lived in the east valley for the last 12 plus years and have yet to find one place on this side of town where the food is... More

Nandos never disappoints. It is always quick, good quality, and a great value. We love the thin crust, pan toasted cheese crisp. Their world famous salsa is to die for. The restaurant is very classy, comfortable and great ambiance. There is outdoor seating and a fireplace. The happy hour is over the top with great choices and ridiculously low prices.... More

Met some friends who raved about this place. We've actually eaten at both the Gilbert and Chandler locations. Food the same at both. Since it was a beautiful night we sat out on the patio. Servers were very friendly and attentive. Our party straggled in and the server did not seem to mind the delay in ordering. Food came quickly... More

On a recent visit to Phoenix, I had a chance to eat at this great Mexican restaurant, that my family has been frequenting for over a year now. The staff is absolutely awesome! They treat you as family and you can rely on their suggestions for both food and drinks. As customary, we started with chips and salsa. The fresh,... More

Zane is an amazing bartender that is friendly, attentive and skilled. We wanted a fun place to take visitors from Wisconsin and ended up sitting at the outside bar for happy hour. Zane explained our options and we ordered the happy hour Margaritas. Complementary hot fresh corn tortilla chips arrived with three salsas of varied heat. Next, we ordered queso... More

It's pretty much standard Mexican fare but I really enjoyed the spinach enchiladas which were a unique menu item and highly recommended especially if your group includes any vegetarian diners. The Bloody Mary was also excellent; our dining companions ordered daiquiris which were also enjoyed.
