The shredded beef burrito was OK, the taco salad was very bland. The margarita was not great either. I will say the waitress was very good, the service was great.

For many years this was the only sit down Mexican restaurant in/around Escanaba. As a former restaurant owner I know when something is out of a can and frozen to be heated up on demand. Atmosphere is decent though, but the food is certainly american...More

As soon as you sit down they bring you chips and salsa. The salsa is so good. They have the best margaritas I've ever had. I definitely recommend their fajitas but you can't go wrong with anything else you get. I'll definitely be going back.

You can probably get just as good at Taco Bell, except the watery margarita. Never walked away very satisfied here, and only go when others insist. The salsa is still pretty good here, not a fan of anything else. Service is often slow and surly.

We love the wet burritos and enchiladas at Ferdinand's. Served with a Margarita and it's all good. Salsas are great and freshly homemade. Chips a little too salty but I shouldn't eat them anyway. Great little place in Escanaba.

Fajitas are a great show at the table, and taste great. Love every dish I've ever tried. I never fail to take home chips and salsa for a next-day treat.

Good Mexican food with great taste. I come every time here when I am in town. And yes - they also have vegetarian choice. I wish that could add 100% wheat Tortola option instead of white flour.
