This is my go-to restaurant 101 and relatively inexpensive yet good Tex-Mex meal. Service is usually good if food comes out reasonably quickly. Rarely is it so crowded that you cannot get a table, but also it never seems to be empty. Always a good choice for a family meal on a budget

Probably the best Mexican food in Jackson. Daniel is a wonderful host! The food is hot and delicious. Great chips and salsa. Spicy cheese dip! We ordered cheese enchiladas with the yummy chili gravy - perfect! Come here often!

Food is always consistent and they have the best chips and salsa in Jackson! I love the Fernandos Nachos, though they recently changed the name. Taco Tuesday is fun and inexpensive for a night out! I like the crispy flour shell with seasoned ground beef. Yum!

This is a great Mexican restaurant!! Excellent service - we never wait for our seats or our food! Drinks are served in large pitcher type cups so refills aren't an issue! My family calls in sometimes for takeout, too. They always have our order ready and correct!!

Ate lunch here several months ago and was pleasantly surprised. After second visit I have to say this is a very good Mexican Restaurant and will continue to eat here each chance I get. Do not live in the area but when shopping nearby I will probably elect to eat here. Lunch menu includes typical Mexican dishes, but service and... More

By far the best Mexican food in the metro area! Best chips and the shrimp is awesome! Drinks are served in huge mugs so you don't have to worry about refills. Great service consistently.

After traveling to Houston for a few days and eating "authentic" Mexican cuisine at a "recommended" restaurant, we ate a late lunch at Fernando's. The food was closest to "authentic" in the Jackson area that we have found. Service is good and staff is friendly. Tea and water are served in pitchers, not glasses.

This is a great Mexican Restaurant, it was very quick with such a large party. It is never very crowded so it isn't too loud or anything. I would recommend going!

This is by far the best Mexican restaurant in the Reservoir area. They treat you like you matter and are very quick at replenishing your drinks, chips, and salsa. Great atmosphere and great staff. We have been going every week for the past five years and they know what we want when we walk in the door. They have the... More
