Ordered fajitas and some of the unpeeled onion skin was left in the dish. Just pushed aside and ate dish. Didn't care for taste, but ate the meal. When I paid, I mentioned the issue to the person at register. He just said, "Should've said something before you paid for it" and walked away from me. I wasn't looking for... More

I go here occasionally, not that often. But in my trips there the food has always been very good along with the service. I have heard from more than one person about how good the guacamole is although I've yet to try it. To me it's a mix of Tex-mex and authentic Mexican.

Unfortunately this trip food was not great. We have eaten here other times and were pleased but not tonight. I had the rib eye strips w poblano peppers. Steak was very dry and too chewy. Poblano peppers w mozzarella were very bitter. Refried beans pale and thin--i hope this was just a bad night. Service was good. Husband had steak... More

If you don't eat Mexican food this is not your place. We had one with us who had to order chicken fingers off the kids menu to find something to eat. Other than that--the rest of us were very happy with the white cheese appetizer and guacamole and lots of nice warm chips! Plenty of food with each entry. Big... More

I was traveling with some friends through Jonesboro, AR on my home from a conference. We all agreed that Mexican food sounded good. We saw Kandela Grill and thought that it looked like an interesting place to eat. The food was great. I had a taco salad and asked the waitress for some jalapenos for it. She brought out a... More

The food is decent. Mostly generic Mexican with little authenticity. Still not bad. Biggest issue is service...they're terrible. Appetizer came after the meal, drinks were watered down, and the silverware and dishes were dirty. When pointed out to management that the Margarita glass had lipstick on it, he looked confusingly at our party and walked away. Very poor management.

Kandela Grill was so great! We had a party of 6 and were immediately seated. The salsa had a good kick to it, but not too spicy. The cheese dip was my favorite and I order the cheese enchiladas with chicken on top.
