Nado's is great! The chicken is flavorful and prepared to order. The sides are equally impressive. Worth a visit.

This local chain restaurant describes itself as Afro-Portuguese, which I had never tried before. The food was fabulous, with perfectly cooked, well-seasoned chicken and tasty side dishes. If you like a bit of spice, order the chicken "medium." For the spice-averse, try the mango or lemon and herb. Although there seemed to be a wide variety of wines on the shelves behind the cashier, there were only a few listed on the menu, and they were kind of on the expensive side for a restaurant serving food with $10-12 entrees. Our bottle of red wine was $32, and that was the cheaper option. The sangria was cheaper, and also quite tasty, but in a smaller pitcher. When you arrive, the hostess will seat you, but you then order your meal at the counter, and will be given a number for the table so the food can be delivered when it is ready. Because the menu is largely limited to chicken, the service is pretty quick. The restaurant was busy, but our party of five was seated quickly. Despite the bustle, the restaurant wasn't noisy, and we were able to easily carry on a conversation. Can't wait to go back!

This chain restaurant never lets you down. The chicken and sauces were great as always but the red wine wasn’t spectacular. The location is great, right on 7th with several other higher priced restauants.

If you like Delicious chicken , various sauces with a lil spice or a lot of spice - Nando's is for you. I always get their Lemon Pepper wings. My Must HAVE is their garlic sticks - YUM!!!

The concept is to order your chicken dish at the window, and use their sauce bar to flavor the chicken how you want it. The chicken is excellent, and the sides are quality. Perhaps the best part of the experience is the Sangria's. Great happy hour Sangria prices, but we had them at regular price, and still not too costly. Go there!
