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.

I enjoyed the delicious beef chalupas. The chips and salsa were great. Fabulous margaritas! Friendly and attentive staff and owners.

This place has been around forever, run by a local Mexican family. The food choices are very good and extensive. The quality is also very good and it is very reasonably priced. Fills up with locals consistently. What does that tell you?

I love this place. Took my two children here for dinner on a weekend and was surprised by the new look inside, I love it! The restaurant had really opened up and seems more inviting. They were also working on the outdoor patio in anticipation of warmer weather. The chips were hot. Salsas were flavorful and service was great. The... More

The food has gone downhill. Was a 15 year customer and frequently took friends here. Made many recommendations but no more. Hasta la vista.

This was my first Mexican restaurant experience in Delavan. I will certainly try others. I have never seen fajitas served on a normal plate with cubed beef. ??? My chili rellenos were not battered and fried, which is the traditional cooking method. Two classic dishes done entirely wrong do not get a positive vote from me. The margueritas were very... More

Had lunch here, thought the food was just ok. We have had better. Was a bit disappointed and expected better after reading reviews. I wouldn't go back here.
