This family-owned restaurant offers excellent Mexican food in an attractive dining room. The service was prompt, accommodating and friendly. Food service was fast. All of our meals were first rate. A special treat was the excellent sangria. All-in-all, a good dining experience.

The restaurant is nice looking, and the servers friendly, but the food was slow in coming (45 minutes for standard "Mexican" fare?) and mostly terrible. The quesadilla hardly had any cheese in it (hello... the "queso" element of quesadilla is not there!), and the enchiladas were missing the cheese and the sauce. What, was there a shortage on cheese and... More

Serranos has great food and excellent service. I love their bean dip which they give you free with chips. My favorite dish is their shredded beef quesadilla -- just delicious and makes 2 meals for me. I also like that there is almost never a long wait to get in. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

After reading reviews we weren't sure what to expect from Serrano's, but we were pleasantly surprised. We had good service, the chips, salsa and bean dip were good and we enjoyed our meal.

Nice hangout in the bar. TV are adequate for sports viweing. The bean dip is worth the trip. The Mexican food is average.

I hadn't been to this restaurant (Gilbert location) for some time. Apparently since I had been there it has been remodeled and I think is under new management. It was a pleasant surprise. One of the reasons I enjoy going to Serrano's is the complimentary, bottomless chips and dip. Great to snack on while enjoying an evening with your friends... More

The food was the average Mexican fare. No big kudos there, but the Chambord margaritas were a nice bonus.

As we walked into the restaurant, we didn't hear any Latin or Mexican music just loud voices from the bar area. Our server was fantastic. Our large party had a great view of the parking lot(not even a palm tree). My margarita was very weak and lacked flavor. The cheese blend was not the best, chunky and sparse topping our... More

Been here a couple of times, and it is lousy. Gringo fare, so-so service. People seem to love this place, but I just don't know why. On the other hand, it makes my favorite places less crowded.

Good service and decent food. Nothing bad to say about this place other than we all expect Mexican food to be maybe a bit less expensive... Don't get me wrong this place was not bad, but rice and beans are not expensive ingredients....
