“Above average Mexican restaurant in Chandler”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

We found Serrano's in downtown Chandler on Arizona Ave. to be above average among the many Mexican restaurants in the Valley. The service was outstanding. The atmosphere was relaxing. I had a Chile Relleno and a Chicken Enchilada while my wife had a Beef Chimichunga. The portions were not too large and the food was very good. The margaritas were also quite good. The prices were reasonable. We would recommend Serrano's in Chandler and will definitely be back.

“Good Mexican food in a relaxed setting”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

The service at Serrano's is outstanding: very prompt and friendly. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very pleasant and relatively quiet. Serrano's reminded me of the good, family-owned restaurants you could find more often in the 1970's. I had a pork machaca and the pork was delicious. The other ingredients all seemed very fresh. I was in town on business, but I believe Serrano's would be a great place for families.

“Second best Mexican restaurant in the Valley”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

Food was excellent, but lacked a little in style. Ate in the bar area, traveling by myself, and service was OK, nothing to write home about. The margarita was really good but on the small side.

“We expected more”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Having heard that this long-time favorite restaurant in downtown Chandler had been renovated, we arrived for lunch on a Saturday very much looking forward to the experience. Both of us ordered quesadillas which were okay but less what we were expecting. Perhaps our expectations were at fault, but the restaurant did not appear to be renovated. In fact, we thought it could have been more colorful. The food was, as I said, okay, but we were disappointed.

“We loved it”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

We arrived at an off-hour (3:30pm mid-week), so were seated immediately. Our server explained the menu, answered our multitude of questions, and made excellent recommendations. She was extremely good at her job and made our entire experience way more fun.

We loved the salsa and pinto bean dip, which we had with added to all of the dishes we ordered. Food was extremely flavourful and portions were very large, at reasonable prices. I had the machaca, which was up there with some of the best things I have ever eaten. We cleared our plates but were rolling out of there, and were stuffed for the rest of the day.

The decor is a little dated, though the w/c was very clean.

Overall, great experience!
