No hostess, so after several minutes of wait, we picked a table ourselves and ordered. It took long. The music level is way too high. It's hard to have a conversation. Food is good as always, but it's too loud to enjoy.

Sloppy sloppy on filling a carry out order for 3 people - missing entree even after being asked if the order was complete. The food is ok but if it never makes it to the customer it doesn't matter what the kitchen produces. Disappointing.

Excellent food, specialty is the marinated, grilled chicken. Can order with level of spice (medium is starting to get serious) and specific parts (whole, half, 2 boneless thigh, thigh skewer, breast, leg, or livers. Great sangria -tried the "flavor of the day"- liked the peach...More

Nando's faintly Portuguese chicken options are at once tasty and repetitive. You can get the same basic ingredients in numerous forms, and they all come with the same selection of spices. But the food is fresh, and the spices have plenty of heat (if you...More

Love the atmosphere and decor. Great service - very nice friendly staff. The coleslaw was great. Very fresh with a little kick to it.
