I stopped by on a lark today after fishing in the Connecticut river all morning. I arrived at 115 to a busy place. Most there were locals and most took box lunches to go. There is a cafeteria like serving line for patrons. I don't speak Spanish but the staff and the other patrons were very... read more

I'm a socially awkward white guy and was a little worried that I'd walk into a place where everyone only spoke Spanish and feel completely out of place -- happily I was wrong! The staff was very friendly, and happy to suggest food choices for a "first timer", as were other folks waiting in line with me who were happy... More

I've been to Fernandez a couple years back. I did think it was best Spanish food around. Everyone loved them. I think they started falling off because they had so much clientele there on a daily basis.so they were dependent on customers returning just because it was like family, not so much the food part. I went back this summer... More

Great place to stop for a hot lunch on a cold day. The food is great and served cafeteria style. Would highly recommend if you're in town.

I visit Fernandez about once a month. The food is never less than great. Even on the busiest days, the line moves quickly and the service is always friendly. The amount of food you receive for the price is overwhelming. I highly recommend to anyone in the area, looking for a great lunch experience.

The best Spanish Food around!!!No frills But the place is great. All the food is amazing but you must get the roast pork. I usually go for lunch and there is usually a crowd.

When I moved from NYC to western Mass I thought I had given up those giant plates of pernil and plantains and rice and gravy. Yesterday I found the Fernandez Family Restaurant and was thrilled to experienced the Puerto Rican hospitality, (and generous portions) that I had left behind in Manhattan. We arrived at 1 pm and had to wait... More

Fernandez catered some wedding events for me recently and every person I talked to who attended raved about the food. The family that owns the restaurant and catering business care about their customers and are incredibly generous with their time and energies. The food is delicious, inexpensive and the people are great to work with. What else could you ask... More
