Mexican

I have been at this restaurant many times. We usually split the fajitas due to the size. The only give you 2 tortillas. That is not enough for the amount of the meal. If you ask for more, expect a charge. Food is decent, but I enjoy other mexican restaurants better. Server was rued several times.

We've been to Nando's a few times, it is one of my wife's favorites. We live in Lake Tahoe and our families are in the Phx area, so when we visit we usually have a meal at Nandos. It is good mexican food. Everything there is good and we highly recommend it. Plus they have some pretty great drinks.

The food is decent quality and very filling, just the plates here are huge!! My kids could barely eat there food!! The only thing that moved this rate to an average is the fact that they forgot to serve my plate of steak (which tastes amazing) for 30 mins!! Otherwise great food and a great staff.

This restaurant has very good food and the best happy hour food prices. There are several choices like steak or chicken quesadillas, mexican pizza, sliders, nachos at a very good price along with the happy hour drink prices. Have been going there for 2 years and never had a bad experience.

Casual atmosphere with indoor and outdoor seating. Good service. The food is always fresh and hot. Burros, enchiladas, tacos, flautas, tostadas, etc. all delicious. Red chili is not too spicy, haven't tried the green chili. Plenty of food for the price.

Amazing food. I have to visit this place every time we are in Phoenix. Pollo Rico is one of the best dishes on the menu!! Highly recommend! Plus great salsa that comes with chips. Had a 30 minute wait but server was attentive once we sat and had a great meal. Cannot recommend enough!

When I am in the need for margaritas ....I say that I am low in limes. Then we go and get chips, salsa drinks and food. One of the things I first noticed; they left a full pitcher of water. You don't have to ask for refills. Especially in the desert. Inside dining as well as outside dining. Misting system... More

Delicious food, and wonderful service. This place is really a jewel. It's kind of hidden back from Baseline Rd., but well worth looking for.

if you are looking for the perfect American version of Mexican food, this is it. When I want a plate of hot enchiladas, tacos, rice and beans- all smothered in cheese-this is the place. Forget the dinner combo unless you plan to share with a crowd. We go for a late lunch and have the #1, cheese enchilada, taco, rice... More

Service was great. Food was just average for Mexican food. If you are looking for an inexpensive Mexican restaurant where you can get in and out quick this is the place to go.
