Best mexican that we've found in a 100 mile area. Dishes cooked well, not just reheated. We ordered a ton of stuff al la cart and everything was wonderful.

-We always have good service when we go there. They are friendly and accommodating with special requests. -I have found that our best bet is to order appetizers. We like the chips and salsa (we mix the hot and mild). The flaming cheese is awesome!! It's good with chips or they also give you warm tortillas. The shredded beef quesadillas... More

Ferdinand's has great pork tamales...which is pretty impressive considering they are kind of hard to master. I got a mango margarita and regretted it, it was way too sweet and the drink mix came from a powder that was all over my glass. I should have gone for the fresh squeezed lime margarita...oh well...next time!

My wife had a chicken quesadilla and I had the beef fajitas. The beef was not very tender however they were still good fajitas. My wife's chicken quesadilla was very good. The waitress was very pleasant and we had a very nice meal.

This review would have been 'average' but the service is always friendly which bumps it up. For REALLY good Mexican, I'd recommend headig 'south' to Menominee as they have a REALLY good Mexian Restaurant there. But, in this area, Ferdinand's will do. Their lunch buffet is decent, priced right and is filling. It seems to be missing something that says,... More

Not Authentic by any means... I've been to Mexico and they would not even know what half the menu items were. Good Food if your feeling the urge for Mexican and Taco Bell won't cut it.

I went here expecting real Mexican food. Coming from downstate, I had come to expect cheap, semi-authentic Mexican food from similar places. But this was disappointing to say the least. The food was expensive for places in Escanaba and below average. I had a burrito that was dry and completed unseasoned. My chili relleno was dry and also had no... More

the restaurant has a wonderful "Mexican " themed décor but the food is bland. to me everything tastes the same. the only thing I would recommend is the salsa.
