    You can't beat the Sunday Margarita brunch. Great food options, and bottomless margaritas for under $20 is a beautiful thing. We frequent this spot and love the mariachi -just gives brunch a festive and fun feel!

    The mexican food is always great! They have a terrific Sunday brunch with bottomless margaritas and I'd recommend a patio seat to enjoy the pool scenery. Great place for a special event, just ask for the dining room or the patio.

    This was a very disappointing experience for me. I thought it would be good as it is located in The Palms but that was a mistake. The service was very poor, the food was mediocre. Overall, I will not recommend this place nor go back again.

    Always a stop on my visits or passing through Las Vegas. Garduno's at The Palms Hotel has great food at great prices. Usually go through three baskets of chips and salsa. One of my favorites is the House Roast....never lacks in taste or quality. Great ambiance, staff is exceptional, and my kids even love the restaurant.

    Everything started off well, food came out really fast and was good, then everything went downhill. We finished out meals at a normal pace, we weren't rushed at all, when we finished, we then sat there for over 20 minutes before our server even came by to acknowledge that we were done and present our check; there were even other servers who looked right at us and didn't say a thing. We were planning to gamble, the casino lost that money due to the time we had to sit and wait for our check, poor guest service.

    We enjoy Gardunos food and Ambiance. You can sit inside and have the feeling of being at a restaurant a bit noisey and busy or you can sit in the back room wich has the lower ceilings and gives you a bit of a cozy feeling and a bit quieter or you can sit outside on the restaurant/pool patio, giving you the party scene and fresh air (but can be very loud at times).

    Garduno's would not a restaurant that I would hurry back to again. In spite of having a reservation, we were seated in an area next to the bar and a self-serve station. There were other tables available in the rear looking out on the atrium. Granted, we should have asked to be moved. The waitstaff took a long time to get our drink order and once they did, it took a while for the drinks to arrive. The food was mediocre at best. Overall, not an enjoyable experience.

    We sat inside with a pool view, so the music outside clashed with the music inside. The food was good. Our server was overwhelmed, so our service was not great. I appreciated the hostess working with us, since we had a miscommunication on our reservation.

    Food was very tasty and the portions were generous. They were very accommodating about options for lower calorie substitutes for veggies instead of rice. Wish I didn't smell the smoke from the casino. We ordered fahjitas and would prefer less or no green peppers-we like red , yellow orange-less bitter. Overall a nice experience.

    I was disappointed in my meal at Garduños. First, I was brought a chile different from the one I ordered. There were no beans served with the dish, and the dish was missing the normal chopped onions and cilantro for putting in the chile. It just seemed like everything was off. I enjoyed the chile, but someone was asleep this past Sunday.

    Garduno's has seen better days! There are too many great places to eat in Las Vegas and this isn't one of them. Possibly the location, in the Palms isn't where they need to be. Las Vegas was booming this week and the Palms was virtually empty. That being said, it's no excuse for waiting for service and just OK food.

    I've been going to Gardunos for years. The food, as always, was outstanding, however, the service was the worst I have ever experienced in the place. In the past it was almost impossible to get into on a weekend night. That night it was only about 3/4 full. I guess word of the bad service had gotten out.

I was meeting up with a sibling to catch up and asked the waiter to not rush us. he accomodadted us and can around at the right pace. food portions were plenty large. I ordered fish tacos and they were good, not the best ever. I'm not a fan of grilled green peppers on my fish tacos.

    Went here for their Sunday Margarita brunch. For $16.99, all-you-can-drink and all-you-can-eat is an awesome deal. French toast was great, and had a semi-weird selection of breakfast foods and Mexican foods. Definitely worth a shot for Brunch, not sure about other times.

    My wife ordered a shrimp cocktail. She said it was good, but unfortunately she had had a better one at a Mexican restaurant in San Diego that she enjoyed much more....so yours didn't measure up to that one in size or flavor. My tacos were wonderful. The shells were lightly fried and the overall experience was delicious.

    We were a table of 7 for New Year's Eve. Although it appeared to be busy, there were many empty tables. Our waiter was very inattentive. He brought the appitizers out and 2 minutes later the entres arrived. There was no room at the table for all of the plates, he did not clear, he did not refill water glasses, that was a real downer for all of us. For the price, the food was good. We will not go back there though.

    Garduno's is in my opinion one of the "BEST" mexican restaurants in Las Vegas. Never had a dish I didn't like..margaritas are yummy and the salsa bar has an awesome bean dip. We are Las Vegas locals and always take our family and friends to dinner or the awesome Sunday Brunch!
