The food is fresh and plentiful and the staff always accommodates us even with an infant requiring a high chair. Margaritas are good. Not my most favorite Mexican restaurant, but definitely reliable.

Serrano's is good tex-Mex but not GREAT tex-Mex. Their lunch specials are nicely done and you can always count on their enchiladas. I find the floor tortillas a little too oily for my taste, but the queso, chips, salsa and service is always good.

This restaurant is a great place to go to enjoy casual Tex-Mex food at a reasonable price. The portions are very large and extremely tasty. The seating area is much larger on the inside than I expected it to be. The menu has a large...More
