Margaritas were good, however drink service very slow. Typically took 25 minutes from time or order to get drinks. Some dishes pricey like an order of cornbread for $13 and a tiny portion of queso for chips for $10.

Mac and cheese was amazing. Server was fine but not great. 3 stars because some of the steak in our tacos was raw. Like cold in the middle.

This was my girlfriend and I's second trip to Nada. A friend of mine recommended the street corn and I knew at that point, we were in love (me and the street corn). We highly recommended Nada.

We were celebrating our son’s birthday and they said they’ll do something special for him. At the end of the dinner they did bring out churros with a candle but then they charged us for the Churtos as well. So really they did not do anything special for the birthday boy. For the $125 we spent for the four of us, they could’ve given the churros complimentary.

If you are thinking this is a typical Mexican Restaurant, think again. This restaurant serves the most delicious Amish Chicken Carbon. And for those of you who prefer salad, try the Roasted Beet and Fuji Apple Salad. This tasty dish is served with goat cheese and pickled shallots with a vinaigrette.
The prices are good and the service is good!
We will be back for sure as we would love to try one of their delicious-sounding cocktails.

The table for a group of 6 was not a good space for us as it was not comfortable. There was not enough space. The tacos were amazing but the Ceviche was not good. The queso was amazing! Chips had too much salt. I will definitely comeback for the tacos.

The Baja fish taco was sublime. Also good were the butternut squash soup and the baby kale salad. Less appealing was the chicken fajita with the chicken dry and lacking flavor.

Server was sociable and fun. Ambience was a good vibe. Food was very good. I’m grain free and they put lettuce wraps instead of tortillas. I wish there was more filling in my tacos, especially because two of three were just vegetables. I was very pleased about that. The corn was the best. Cracked potatoes were pretty good too.

My friend and I went to dinner after not seeing each other one on one for months and we had a lot to catch up on. After 3+ hours, we thought we were going to be kicked out, but actually they wanted to bring us a free dessert on the house just for hanging out. The food and drinks were excellent, definitely will be going back soon!

Nice, casual Saturday lunch that turned into a great and very filling experience with amazing service from our waitress and the rest of the team.

The drinks (mezcal & reg margaritas) were quite good. In terms of appetizers, the salsas, guac, and specialty cornbread were great and are all worth coming back for, maybe even the chips as well!

Tacos were impressive for a Midwest chain restaurant in the mid-Atlantic...good portions of meat and veggies, well seasoned, and nicely plated. We’d definitely return.

We had a nice evening and service was very good. Our food was good although Quesadilla was prepared much differently than last time there and the portions are now smaller. Each included a section of burnt cheese. Also...Margaritas were weaker than our last visit. Not

Amazing food! The restaurant is beautiful inside. Our server was super friendly and kind. They gave my boyfriend free churros for his birthday. Queso was to die for! Mexican corn was amazing and so were the tacos. 10/10... defiantly can’t wait to go back. My new favorite spot!!

This was a great experience. We very much enjoyed the homemade dishes we ordered. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Parking is best in one of the nearby garages, which are free (at least on Friday evening) if you are there under 2 hours. This time frame is no problem at Nada.

I had a group of 13 for my fiancé’s birthday and the food was good; however the service was horrible. Our waiter tried, but he was absurdly slow. I don’t know if he was new, but why would you have someone who is new handle the largest table at the restaurant? The food was good, but definitely over priced. We were not informed that the chips and salsa were NOT free. It took us over an hour to get our bills! We even informed the waiter when we first arrived that we would be splitting the bill and exactly how it should be split. We reconfirmed this AGAIN when I asked for the bills a third time. After waiting an hour, I asked to speak to the manager who was absolutely useless. He didn’t correct our bills, did not offer a discount or to remove one of the items off of the bills that were incorrect. Our waiter never showed his face again after that hour; I still wonder where he went. We were there for almost 3 hours and basically the last party to leave because we couldn’t pay our damn bill. Due to this, I would NOT recommend Nada.
