Dinner stop

Eating in you have more amenities but the take out is also a good option. The service is good and if you want some take home food it is offered. Parking can be a challenge but with the stop.

Every once in a while, you stumble onto a gem of a Mexican restaurant in a small town. This is not one of those places; Hernandez lies at the other end of the spectrum. The food is not authentic Mexican; it's not even good American. The beef enchiladas are filled with sloppy Joe mix, which is just weird. The menu... More

A few members of our 23 people group arrived 25 minutes late, but we ordered just as they arrived. Our food took over an hour from that point to arrive. The food was not as good as the other Mexican restaurant in Delavan. The margaritas were good. The food was mediocre. The guacamole was not very good. The chips were... More

Ah...yi...yi!!! What great drinks and food to be had at Hernadez's. A great menu and don't leave with out first trying the nachos or shrimp appetizers along with one of Raphael's margaritas and signature entrees. A Delavan tradition!!

They server what tasted like bottle mix margarita's very price too for what you get. the Chi-mi, Burrito and Fajitas- the meat was tasteless - Fajatas were served on a cold plate - - no spice or cumin or any flavor that says Mexican.to the onions or pepper slices. Would not recommend unless you like very bland food.

I stopped in on a business trip to town. Glad I did, colourful welcoming decor and good food. I had the Chiles Rellenos and the beef was spiced nicely and it came with rice and beans on the side. Home made tortilla chips with red and green salsa to start was a nice touch.

We like to go to Hernandez In Delavan. The decor is impressive. I like to sit outside on the patio. The food is pretty good and reasonably priced. The staff is good. Margaritas are the best in town! It is especially fun to go there on Cinco de Mayo!
