The food is always really good at Nando’s, but tonight I had to write due to the service. Carmen was awesome, going way above and beyond. She even gave our son a toy and he totally loved it. Quite possibly the best restaurant experience we’ve...More

The Mexican food is ok. A little over priced for the food you get. It's your average Mexican food. Kind of like Garcia's, South of the Border. The food is that taste.

Nandos seems to cover everything in melted cheese. The flavors on most things I've tried are bland. So if you like bland mexican food covered in cheese, you'll like Nando's.

We've gone to the main restaurant for years. A couple years ago we found this little side entrance to their breakfast restaurant. Fabulous Mexican breakfast foods. Great service. Most recently by a server named Cay. Super selection, even for a vegetarian.

Good Mexican food and drink. Always busy so expect wait time or go early. Has patio and bar seating.

I recommend the shredded beef tacos, I think that is one of their best dishes. The only thing is ask them to put a little cheese, unless you love cheese! Pretty loud, but overall ok to dine in.

Good food, possibly a little too much cheese. The service for the most part is good and the prices are competive.

My girlfriends and I sometimes stop in after hiking Usery. We usually sit in the bar area and enjoy the friendly atmosphere. Food is good and the margaritas are super refreshing! ;)

Nice local Mexican food restaurant. Have tried different dishes, but my favorite dish is enchaladas del mar, seafood enchaladas. Nice atmosphere. Busy most days of the week in the evenings.
