We have stayed in Chandler a few times now. Every time, it is a MUST to visit this place. I can't stop at one Margarita, the food is fantastic, the service is great, and the ambiance on the patio is second-to-none!

From reviews we decided to give Nando’s a try. We stopped on our way home for a bit of Mexican food. We found Nando’s to be good but not great. Chips were plentiful and one of the two salsas was quite good the other not so much for whatever reason, a bit on the spicier side. We each had a... More

It was our second day in Chandler, so after some discussions we've decided on Mexican. We weren't disappointed, the food was great, and the crafted beer is a must.

We had great service, which is helpful with 2 young kids, and the food was excellent! I had their Mexican pizza with chicken, it's an appetizer but plenty for a whole meal, and it was wonderful! We visit here every time we're in town.

Took a friend from England. She wanted Mexican food. This was the first place we thought of. Friday night & they were very busy. Got seated in about 20 minutes & had a wonderful meal.

From Oregon, no one around here knows what a Sonoran enchilada is. I was so excited to get back to Arizona and enjoy a wonderful Sonoran enchilada. This is a good Mexican restaurant.

Visited Nandos recently. Very casual dining, no need to dress up here. Their salsa and chips are really good and food portions are large. However the chicken fajita was only so-so, the meat was tough, large rubbery pieces, not tender and nicely sliced as you would normally expect. My partner said his enchilada was ok but nothing to rave about.... More

Enjoyed a delicious meal at Nando's tonight. We ate outside where the outside fireplace was inviting. My Chimichanga with shredded chicken was perfect ($10.50). House Margarita Was also good. Our waiter was attentive but not intrusive. I would definitely recommend.

This restaurant has a great patio and an awesome happy hour. The portions are large so I suggest sharing items.

I don't understand how a Mexican restaurant can make bad margaritas. I ordered their upmarket and husband ordered regular house. Both tasted the same????? Bad.
