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

My family and I have been dining at Hernandez over 25 years. We love the fresh homemade chips ,authentic salsas, and flavorful mexican dishes. We have tried over 4O different menu items and the quality is always consistent. Make sure to try their mega margaritas! Kudos to the Hernandez Family for receiving the voters award again " Best Mexican Restaurant... More

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.

Been going here for over 20 years, but no more. We loved this place, but on the last several visits the food has been horrible...this last visit I ordered the chile rellenos (which has usually been good in the past). The peppers were tiny and mushy; they changed the cheeses used with a cheaper variety. We were there in July... More

There is one very good thing about Hernadez and that is their salsas! They give you three different dips with the chips (you sometimes have to ask for the warm/mild salsa - very good!). They give you extra chips but 9 out of 10 times you have to ask for them. The food was never very good (in our opinion),... More

When we pulled up we were not sure about the place, but we went in. Best thing ever! The service was good, and the food was great! We will go back.
