Eaten at Nados a couple times and each time I am struck by its lack of atmosphere. The lighting seems too bright. The food is ok, but nothing special. This last time I tried the fajita and found the chicken very tough. My partner enjoyed his enchilada. Their salsa dip is really good.

I stopped in to try this place out. I ordered a lunch to go. I got the "Seafood Enchilada topped with Sour Cream and served with Rice & Beans". It was excellent and the service was fast and friendly.

This is a favorite restaurant for Mexican food. Margaritas are excellent. Family friendly, good food & service. Outside dining is available with heaters and a fireplace.

I had two shredded beef tacos, my husband had pollo fundido and it was just okay. I would not recommend the refried beans (taste like they came out of a can), the rice was just okay. Overall, this restaurant and their service was just average. I would highly recommend if you decide to have a business meeting, go elsewhere, since... More

Nandos is our go-to spot for lunch when we are craving Mexican food. The authentic Mexican dishes and margaritas are what keeps people coming back for more.

Excellent experience. Plentiful fresh and warm tortilla chips with hot and mild salsa to start. Chicken tacos and Enchiladas were excellent. Service was very good. Attentive and personable. You won't be disappointed. Gilbert location.

I recently enjoyed a late lunch at Nandos, in Gilbert, Az. Very spacious area, pleasant staff, and very quick to get my food. I ordered tamales, rice & beans. The tamale was good but lacked the authentic taste. One thing for sure, they serve a mean margarita!

We went to Nandos in Gilbert AZ last night, the one on baseline and sat at the bar. William was our bartender and folks, if you go and sit at the bar, ask if William is working and if so you will not be disappointed! Super efficient, very friendly and attentive and he really watches out for you in every... More

I was first introduced to Nando's by my brother, who lives in Gilbert. Now that I have discovered it, I have been known to drive 30 miles from Cave Creek to eat there. This food is good and has service that matches it. Be prepared to wait to be seated, because it will be busy. Good Sonoraqn style Mexican food!
