Great Food and On-the-Ball Staff

We called on a Saturday night to reserve a table for 8. We were told they do not take reservations but to come on over. They told us it would be about 15 minutes, which it was. They quickly moved tables and bussed them so we could be seated. The chips are still top notch and warm. We sampled... read more

Great food at a price you will feel good about. The portions are generous and the hospitality is warm and welcoming. If your in Delavan, don't miis this spot.

We always have good food. Not fancy but always consistent. The menu has been updated with options such as shrimp also.

One of the Best Local Mexican Restaurants. Chips are so great, that Nachos were a must for our appetizer. Family run with reasonable prices. Carne asada my husband's specialty, and I usually get enchiladas. Usually go to the restaurant with friends a couple of times a year.

We vacation once a year in Mexico and the food here takes us back there. The last couple of times we dined there, the service was poor..new staff appeared to be thrown into the drink and it was sink or swim. Apologies for delays and mistakes seemed forced. Staff was not at all friendly. We don't mind paying for good... More

I visited Hernandez three times now and every experience was worth the trip. They give very generous portions and all the food is fresh. The owner is very detailed orientated and uses fresh produce from his own garden. The food is authentically made and is family owned and operated. The last time I was there I ordered the Enchiladas Suizas... More

I have been going here with my family for many years! Every time I eat here the food is just amazing! We had the fajitas and the ground beef tacos are my favorite! I love the home-made tacos shells and chips! I feel like back home in Mexico! If you want great authentic Mexican cuisine, Hernandez is the place to... More

This was quite good, especially considering the location in small town Wisconsin. Generous portions for both the fajitas and the fish tacos. My friend was put off by the bars on the windows until I suggested that they were really just decorative.
