I've been to Fernando's several times. This service is ok; the food is ok. I've certainly had much better. Like nearly all the local Mexican restaurants in this area, the food is a little on the bland side for me. They do have a really good salsa that I believe they make themselves but that is about all that sets... More

Definitely not my favorite Mexican food, but the food is decent. Their brown salsa is delicious, probably my favorite thing that they serve. The chicken is bland and dry in anything that you order. The ground beef is not spiced. Service can be spotty. This place is owned by the same people as Del Rio and the food is identical.

Fernando's has always been a decent restaurant to eat at for the buck. They do have all you can eat buffet certain days. We generally eat there once a week. Occasionally, you get something not so hot and the more it cost the more you dislike it. I ordered shrimp fajitas, they were not very impressive for the $13.99 I... More

The mexican food here is fabulous. However Fernando's offers so much more, from the buffet, the regular menu items and the super buffet that offers the traditional mexican items in addition to some classic American dishes and desserts. To top off all of the previously mentioned items, Jairo the manager is great and knows how to take care of guests.

Mexican places are everywhere today, but this was one of the first years ago in the Dacula Ga area. Still one of the best. Huge covered outdoor seating area, and always good food. Live music many nights too. Tonight I had something for the first time: Rios Special Dip, which was cheese dip with steak, shrimp and chicken and it... More

Very much enjoyed the lunch buffet here. $6 for all-you-can-eat tacos, beef or chicken fajitas, hot wings, fried fish, to name a few items. The restaurant is busy for these weekday buffets (11:00-2:00), but the food is quickly replenished when items run out. I could get my $6 worth on hot wings alone, and many diners try to do just...

Fernando's has one of the best lunch buffet around - selection is outstanding. Regular menu is great. Weekend entertainment is always outstanding - especially Hwy 211 group.

Just picked up an order and not only was it wrong after I repeated it several times over the phone but they tried to over charge me. The girl, Gabby, was beyond rude as she argued the wording with me and then proceeded to talk to her friends about me, right in front of my face! The manager did nothing!... More

I've eaten here on several occasions, but this was the first time trying the "all you can eat" buffet. Priced at $8, it offers a wide variety of delicious choices. Everything I tried was very good. The buffet has non-tex mex items like Carved beef/pork, hot wings and chicken tenders. The only item I wish were included is Guacamole.
