My wife had a chimichanga it was full of onions and tomatoes. The beans were as bad as any we have ever had. I had enchiladas with beef,very bland. I took about 3 bites and left the rest. They seem to like to cover everything with greasy cheese and onions. Stopped at Taco Bell on the way home.

We have eaten at Nando's Mexican Cafe a number of times. Lunch menu (prices are less but portions are the same size) are 7 days a week! Chili Relleno is great and Spinach Enchiladas are the wife's favorite. Chips are made in house. Great water - server told us system just upgraded. This could be one of the best Mexican... More

We really like this place, not super cheap but love the patio area, food and margaritas are great and service has always been good. It gets busy during the winter when snobirds are here but if you can avoid the crowds its one of my favorites! Try a cheese crisp!

The food is very good, decor is nice and typically Mexican. Always very busy, indicating many satisfied customers. My only compliant is on two different occasions, I requested seating not by children. In both cases, 17 year old +/- hostesses sat us right by families with young children. First time, we stayed and were sorry. Second time we just got... More

As a long time AZ resident I have experienced many of the local Mexican restaurants! This is my NEW FAVORITE! Great service & ambience...the decor is beautifully tasteful & the plantation shuttered windows next to the booths allow you to control the amount of Arizona sunshine streaming in...nice :) The food is great...with generous serving of fresh corn chips &...

This is an average Mexican restaurant in a region where there are numerous amazing ones. The service and the food were ok. We were in a big group - so a couple of our items were messed up. They also have a limited choice on the hot sauces. Will go again - only if there is nothing else open in... More

We love Nandos..... the food is always good, they serve large portions.... too large to even finish most of the time so be sure to ask for a box to take home. Service is usually pretty good, prices are reasonable.

Stopped in for Happy Hour and stayed for dinner. We have enjoyed this restaurant a few times in the past but this is my first review of it. Margaritas and Dos Equis very reasonably priced and the HH menu was much cheaper than the dining menu. Enjoyed chicken fajitas and an enormous plate of Nando's Nachos with steak and chicken.... More
