Got takeout (unfortunately on buffet night.) We used to enjoy the food, but now it is much more like lots of tasteless food, even though we weren't getting the buffet. My wife had a regular chimichanga; I had one chicken & one beef chimichanga, which were actually fried enchiladas) The only things that were not terrible was the salads, which... More

I visit Fernando's just about once a week for the past 6+ years. It is the standard by which I measure all other Mexican food establishments. I have tried every Mexican joint in a 10 mile radius and they are by far the best Mexican food place in this area...Mistico in Winder might be better, but that's a little more... More

Love the music and the fact that they make special accommodations for dietary restrictions. Favorite food is their steak fajitas and bowls. Enjoy!

Although it is a decent sized restaurant, the entire inside is a maze of narrow aisles filled with oversized tables and booths, barely with enough space for one person to stand. The buffet is at the back of the restaurant and if you are seated at the front you have to navigate the narrow aisles pausing for children and wait... More

I have been going to this restaurant for 8 years, and I have never had a bad experience. This is one of the most consistent, family-friendly restaurants around. They go out of their way to make this a place you'll want to come back to -- over and over again!

I last reviewed Fernandos' buffet about two years ago, when they only had their buffet on Tuesday nights. Since then they've added a Sunday brunch buffet for the same amazingly low price: $8.49, or $9.00 exactly with tax. They've been making lots of improvements since then, too. The buffet dishes, which used to be located along the front wall of... More

Stopped in for lunch, and had the "pick 2 lunch special". I had a hard taco and burrito. Was very good with plenty to eat for $5.99.
