For hot home-made chips and good salsa, you cannot beat Fernando's. The fajitas are always a good choice. Their "Fernando's" taco has shredded beef rather than hamburger meet, and we LOVE their taco's. It's a hometown favorite and usually has a good crowd, but never a waiting line.

If only we had a Fernando's Restaurant in Alabama. The food was delicious! Salsa is not my favorite thing. I usually don't eat the salsa they serve before the meal. but the salsa at Fernando's was absolutely delicious. For my meal I ordered the Fernando's dip with white cheese and also a taco. The dip was $5.99 and consisted of... More

Ate lunch here Sunday shortly after church and they were busy. It seemed like they were having trouble serving a full house. Everyone seem to be on edge but this could be a one time thing. I was served my chips and salsa promptly once they got me seated and everything else went smooth. I had the lunch quesadillas and... More

The price is right here for a family meal, but sometimes the food just doesn't hit the right notes. The cheese dip and chips and salsa are usually spot on and the fajitas are great but other things on the menu are hit and miss. We eat here some, but it is not our favorite restaurant by any means.

This used to be our favorite Mexican restaurant. We ordered take out almost once a week. The chips and salsa are great but unfortunately that's all that is.I ordered mixed fajitas with wheat tortillas tonight. There were 2 small pieces of chicken and 2 small pieces of steak. There were lots of onions, it was pitiful. They only gave me... More

Been eating at Fernandos since it originally opened. Chips and salsa have consistently been very good. Quality of food and service varies on any particular visit. Have noticed chip places on dishes which I find really bad in restaurants. Sometimes kids (employees children?) way too active in a place of business.

Can't beat salsa & chips! Have a large lunch menu as well. Service has always been speedy. Quesadillas could use a bit more veggies. And always want more Guacamole!!

This place has really stepped up its game over the past year. Since their remodeling and change of menu, they have continued to improve. We regularly enjoy dining at Fernando's as they are close, however we frequent this restaurant primarily due to the consistent good food.
