Service was poor, entree out before the appetizer so we ended up just canceling it, beer we ordered at time of arrival came out after the entree as well, and the original beer we ordered and was told they have (corona premier) wasn’t something the carried so we ordered bud lights and it was so delayed in arriving we were almost finished with our meal. Will probably never go back.

On a Crew soccer night, the bar area was very loud. Went with 6 people. They ordered guacamole and salsa which help curb our appetites. They then ordered different tacos and shared across 4 of them which worked out well. My wife always gets the Chili Relleno and I went with the chicken enchiladas. These dishes are more food than you think and will fill up anybody. Food was prepared well and you really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. I still miss the original cracked potatoes - so simple but wonderfully crispy.

Pork tacos with hint of pineapple /cilantro were amazing. Drunken beans have rich taste. Chicken enchiladas were smooth and mild. Cilantro rice great accompaniment for all. The outside patio was inviting for an evening meal. Good beer selections; wine by the glass was limited selection but still sufficient.

Service was very slow. We didn’t get food until 40 mins after being seated. Getting water took 10 mins after we were seated. We were one of two tables in the whole restaurant so we couldn’t understand the slow service.

Nada was fantastic and thank you for providing such awesome service, Abrielle! We enjoyed probably a little too much food but it was worth it! Queso is a must-have, guac and salsas were awesome, especially the habanero. Everything was delicious and we felt very well taken care of. We will definitely be back:)

We were greeted with happy and cheerful attitudes. I had initially made our reservation for indoor seating but decided to see if outdoor was available when we got there as the weather was much more pleasant than anticipated. I told her it was completely okay if they couldn’t accommodate. She went above and beyond checking for outdoor seating and I was pleasantly surprised when she said they could make it happen. Our server was Max and he was also very pleasant and accommodating. Nada is just a very fun restaurant with great ambiance. The staff seem to really like their work and I am grateful that they show up and do a fantastic job!

We had the best experience last night! Our server, Sydney, is a rockstar! Best service we’ve had from anywhere in years. She was attentive, joyful, and always one step ahead of our needs. The food was fantastic. I had the gazpacho to start and it was delicious, a new take with it being creamy while being packed with flavor. We asked for something off menu and it was easily accommodated. It was refreshing to dine in an environment where the staff seemed to truly enjoy their roles. We will be back soon!

Food came before chips and salsa and drinks. It was like the opposite order. This was me giving this place a second try. Won’t do a third sadly because it’s so close to the stadium

Bummer. Haven’t been here in a while and it was one of my favorite places for Mexican. I thought the prices were pretty high for what I got. Had the grilled mahi fish tacos. They were tiny and mahi was dry and a very very small portion. Seemed like the food sat under a heat lamp for too long. Also had the cucumber salad side, which for the price of $5 and about a 1/2 cup of sliced cucumbers, it was way overpriced. At least increase the size if not going tp lower the price.
Service was very slow but it was busy, game night. Would probably go back for lunch.

We went in for early dinner before concert at Express Live.
The server was great, helped daughter come up with a vegan meal.
All food was very tasty & all the salsas were great. The guacamole was a little pricey, added to cost of chips & salas...but very fresh & full of flavor.
The sangria rojo was good & tart.
