We enjoyed our lunch here. The full menu also has a lunch feature section. Very nice beer list featuring several local brews on tap plus the expected margarita varieties. The only negative was our server who was adequate at best- maybe she just was having a bad day. Once we ordered our food arrived it very quickly and was piping... More

Great patio for a group. We have had groups here about 4 times now. The dining room is noisy but the patio is great and they take reservations. Food is very good, the service as always been great too. Give it a try.

The Happy Hour margaritas and steak nachos were delish! We sat outside on the patio on a beautiful afternoon/evening and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Love the food, the server was attentive, but not overly so, and would highly recommend this restaurant!

My experience was actually in January 2015 - a retirement party was held at Nando's for me. The entire staff was so professional, friendly and very quick to keep the food/drinks available for all of the attendees. The ambiance, the staff, cleanliness of the restaurant, choice of foods make Nando's a very high class restaurant. The prices are very good... More

The restaurant interior is very good, with plenty of seating. The real treat is on a beautiful day/evening, sitting on the patio enjoying any of the selections from the wide menu.

The food was very good but the Service was lacking. It took almost 20 minutes before the waiter took our order.

Shredded beef enchiladas. Can't beat them! Order them every time I'm here. Have never tried anything else here but the menu is extensive and excellent from what I have heard from others

Mexican food is not complex but you do need to get it right for people who really love it - and we do. Nandos was packed on a Tuesday night and it was a little noisy because of this. Excellent wait staff and our dishes arrived quickly and well presented. If you dont like rice and beans there are still... More

I work across the street from Nando's and we love to go there and eat because the food is really good. Today's experience though was a little dis-heartening, I have credit cards that I get from my vacation club and they have set amounts of money on them so I had two of them with me today to pay for...
