This place is great if you like American Mexican food. The decorating is fun and the food is good. Standard Mexican entrees.

The bas are a design element for this cozy, casual, brightly decorated restaurant. Staff is friendly, margaritas excellent. The menu is extensive and prices are reasonable. specially good are the chili rellenos and shrimp w/Cholula sauce. Always stop here when we're in the area (and sometimes when we're not!)

We used to eat there all the time 20 years ago. The food has gone downhill and the waitstaff is horrible-always on their phone.

We have been going to Hernandez for years, it is always consistent, it is just good Mexican, nothing fancy or amazing but always good. One of the places that we always come back to as we have never had a bad meal or have ever been disappointed in anything here,

Good service, good food, amazing margaritas, food comes out hot the chips are home made a wonderful while waiting. I recomment a beverage with the chips. The owner is usually present and happy to see you and great customer service.

My wife had raved about this Mexican restaurant she used to go to when she lived in the Delavan area, many years ago. We finally found the time to come up, and it happened we were in time for lunch. I've had the experience of remembering a place, and returning to it many years later, and it just hasn't kept... More

I have been eating at Hernandez for longer than most readers of this review have been on this Earth. I'm really glad that after all these years, I can finally share with the general public how much I love this restaurant and it's family. Simply put, the food, service and ambiance is stellar, but what really makes this the place... More

I recently was on vacation in Delavan and wanted to try some authentic Mexican food for lunch. I was there around 2:00 in afternoon actually. The restaurant was almost empty, I was sat promptly, was given home-made chips and salsa that was delicious. I was asked for my order before I even got to check out the menu. I had... More

Stopped in for lunch with a business customer who had not been here before. We were promptly seated and had water and the complimentary chips and salsas delivered to our table as we surveyed the menu. We ordered the fish tacos and a beef chimichanga and both were outstanding. Great service and food experience!

After seeing Hernandez on Around the Corner with John McGivern, we took a ride to Delavan to have a good Mexican lunch. Wrong. Possibly the worst Mexican food I ever ate. The refried beans tasted like stale lard. I didn't eat one drop of the beans. The rice had no seasoning just bland rice. The chicken enchiladas were tasteless. Bland... More
