My husband & I eat at Fernandos at least 1-2 times/week. We have our favorites, but most of the food is really good. I have to say the taco salad is rather blah and we always have to ask for extra onions on the tacos. The service is always great. Sometimes on Friday nights it is a little slower, but... More

This is in downtown Blair on a popular corner and a good place for lunch or cocktails. Friendly atmosphere and decent food for a fair price. We have gone back again frequently.

I went for lunch with 2 colleagues from work and food was very good. The flour nacho with sauce was great! I could not eat all my food, despite it was delicious. Service was also in the right way and nothing was missed and it was in time.

We eat at this restaurant once a week! Excellent margarita's and copious amounts of tasty cheese on all of the food. They have a large menu, so if you are forced to eat here a couple of times a week, you can find something different.
