Best Mexican food in Phoenix – Let me just start out by saying that Mexican food is my passion. On my first trip to rural Mexico (not the touristy spots) I fell in love with the rustic, authentic flavors of quality Mexican cuisine. I have been to several dozen Mexican restaurants across the valley in the search for the ultimate Mexican food, and while the search continues, I have yet to find one as good as Nando's.

My wife and I were introduced to this place by one of her co-workers, and from our first meal we were both completely sold. She is lactose intolerant, and I love nothing more than a big plate of bubbling cheese, and we were both very impressed.

I always order a number 9. That's a cheese and onion enchilada (to die for), a shredded beef taco (meat and cheese only by special order; I don't need lettuce and tomatoes; it just cuts into the awesome flavor of that heavenly shredded beef) and a huge steaming pile of the best Mexican rice you will ever have. Scoop up a big fork-full of rice with that runover cheese from the enchilada and you will never go anywhere else.

My wife gets the chicken fajitas with grilled veggies, or sometimes the deep-fried shredded beef burro with grilled veggies (depending on how fat she is feeling) =)

I'm sure you can see my passion for this place after years of weekly visits, and can only say that if you really love quality Mexican food, you should give this place a try.

My only real advice is to come early or late, as most days if you come between 6pm-8:15pm you are in for at least a 30 minute wait. And trust me, people don't line up for mediocre food.

My score is 10 stars but they only let me rate it as 5.

Vert good Mexican Food – Nandos has to be in the 10 mexican restaurants in the east valley. They have good salsa and its seldom allowed to run out on you by the staff. They have a great mexican pizza that we order as a prelude to our meal. I almost alway order the border Chimi with red chili or Muchaka. They top it off with sauce, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, lettuce and tomato. They also have Dos Exquis on tap which is great with a lime wedge and some salt. The place is great for kids or for a date. Try to get seating on the patio if its not too hot out.
