I don't know why this place gets so much hate. My friends and I are frequent visitors and never have any major complaints. I say major because the biggest issue I've ever had was some stale chips, which they apologized for and replaced. The salsa bar here is amazing. The cucumber salsa is unlike anything you'll get anywhere else. My... More

This was our first time... Food was decent but my husband and I both only had tea and our bill was 40$ with no appetizers or desserts. For that price I most likely won't go back.

Building is old, and dirty inside and had a bad smell. food was all generic (mostly canned) type stuff. Queso and salsa were straight out of a can or jar. Chips were regular bagged chips from...

I hadn't been to Fernando's in awhile, and upon returning was glad to find that they had finally torn out the smelly carpet and installed hardwood flooring. Thank you! They offer a great chile relleno . . . you pick the type of chile, the stuffing, topping, lots of choice. Salsa bar is their signature . . . tucked way... More

I moved to Amarillo 2 1/2 years ago from Phoenix, and this is the most Authentic Mexican Food I've found here. Very good food at a great price. My wife and I ate for $22 including drinks.

The food was great. The Salsa Bar definitely had some spice! Try each one, but be ready for some heat! The service was excellent. Enjoy!
