Yummy authentic Mexican food served by pleasant waitstaff in a no-frills eatery. Delicious salsa served with warm fresh chips was the perfect starter. Jalapeno tamale had just the right amount of zip. Tacos were fresh and delicious. Definitely recommend you try it out.

The food was good and the service as well. The portions were much larger than expected. As a result, I did not eat any of the second dish on a combination plate. I would not hesitate to come here again.

Went to Mando's with family early Friday evening. We were the only people in the place. The menu look pretty good but it was probably the most bland Mexican food we have ever eaten. Maybe we are spoiled by New Mexico and Texas Mexican food....More
