When they told me Fernandos has been around for 14 years I was really surprised. Almost nothing lasts that long in Castroville. I had a delicious plate of BBQ (only on Wednesdays) and a big glass of ice tea. Everything was amazing. The service was...More

Had the rib eye steak and shrimp special ($11.50) and it was cooked perfect with large portions. The service was excellent. The building is old but don't let that deceive you. Fernando runs a clean operation. BTW Fernando is a warm, friendly guy and interesting...More

We had the 22 oz T-Bone w/fries and the puffy tacos. Steak was outstanding! Perfectly cooked (medium rare) with an outstanding rub. Tacos were just fine. Felt like I was eating in my best friends kitchen. This place is totally un-assuming (some might call it...More

Authentic Mexican food and the best Chicken Fried Steak! Don't be fooled by the decor or the look from the outside. These dives can have the best food, and Fernandos is no exception. Highly recommend for local flavor and great, home made meals.

I'd heard a lot about Fernandos from a local and wanted to love this place. Regretfully, it was only average at best. I had catfish and fried shrimp, which came with fries and a "salad". The catfish and shrimp were OK, but there was no...More
