Have been living in the western mass area for 5 years and this is one of my favorite restaurants. Food is incredible and very unexpensive. Enjoy!!

I have visited this establishment a few times and each time I go their food is very good. They serve buffet style so you can see and choose what you like. The place is in a nice neighborhood and it's very family oriented!

Decided to make a stop at Fernandez Family Restaurant for lunch with co-workers...best decision I made. Food was excellent, many delicious choices offered, great sit-in establishment and very friendly staff. Must try the roast pork and don't skip out on the pork skin it's to die for. I will definitely return AGAIN AND AGAIN👍👍

This is a hidden gem in downtown Holyoke. Always excellent food, large portions and fantastic people. I don't get to downtown Holyoke often enough during the day to enjoy.

What a great job they do on their catering! Hispanic food at its best. We had 70 people at our event some of them picky eaters. Everyone loved the food, rice and beans, pork, potato balls, baked chicken, plantains all top shelf and a lot of food for the the buck. The whole Fernandez Family friendly and accommodating, very professional... More

Pork, chicken, ribs, rice and peas -- delicious and lots of it. Three of us ate lunch, with drinks, and spent about $30! And had enough left of another meal. The food is basic but good. And don't forget the fried potato ball! Yum! Plan ahead, though. they are only open Mon-Fri, from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

This is a very place for the Holyoke locals to eat. It serves up straight forward, homecooked, plentiful plates of authenitic Puerto Rican food. It's very crowded at lunch time so it's better to go off hours. You can ask for 1/2 servings if you like and it will be more than ample. Their empanadas are good for a snack... More
