We went there for a birthday celebration and the service was outstanding. The carnitas tamales were great, and we had seconds on the guacamole. The churros melted in your mouth and were served with caramel and chocolate sauce on the side. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a treat in the area!

We love Nada! The food is excellent and so flavorful. The Froloma is a delicious cocktail that I get every time and there are so many veggie and fish options that we love. The restaurant is bright, airy and festive. And it's very reasonably priced for the amount of food we get. We get chips and guac to start and then 3 little tacos each and the side of corn and chili potatoes and it's so filling. We've gone on dates alone there and with our kids and it's always so good. We will go back soon!

Will not go back. Way too noisy. We could not hear each other and we could barely hear the waitress who was phenomenal. She said it is not usually that noisy but I wouldn’t risk it again but taco shell was really authentic but the feeling wasn’t all that special

Food was good. Guacamole and the corn side dish are delicious. Fish tacos were bland. Carne asada, carnitas, and cauliflower tacos were all yummy. Service was very good. Cost seemed high once we saw total bill, but will not stop us from going back.

I ordered 3 tacos, both the chicken and beef are blend, not grill. I could not taste any onion or cilantro on it, no other condiments come with it. The place very noisy as well, difficult to hear even in the same table.

The food was great but the waiter was not professional and not nice.
We’ve waited 45 minutes for the food just because he forgot to order.
He was very rude and unpleasant.

Food and service were both outstanding, the bill was reasonable. We ate outside, which was great. Remarked that we would probably not yo back if we had toneat inside. Between the music and loud voices, the noise was way too much. Too bad, since food and service were so good.

This is one of the best and most surprising new restaurants to open in Montgomery County. The food is top notch and the staff are very friendly. I have hosted a large scale work function here in the past and it went off perfectly. If you have not tried Nada you should. The managers Corey and Matt are fantastic. The servers Paris and Adam are who you should ask for.

The portion sizes are quite lacking. I ordered the Crab Benedict at $14. There were maybe 4 BITE SIZED PIECES of crab meat total in the dish. The dish also came with no sides at all...just the Benedict. My girlfriend ordered the Huevos Rancheros. She rarely/never finishes meals when we go out. Here, however, she finished with ease and commented that she was still hungry afterwards. It's a shame because the food is decent.

I was taken here for lunch awhile ago and have been back for dinner several times.

This visit we shared a salad (excellent), red sangria and several tacos. My favorites are the chicken and carne asada. You must try the potatoes with red chili sauce. Absolutely fantastic.

I recommend ordering each course separately or it might all come out at once.

Noise level was a bit high.

Service was superb - we’ll become regulars and recommend it to all our friends.

Thank you!

We had a reservation and were seated outside right away. We ordered soup, which was hot, flavorful, and filling. The tacos came very quickly but, oddly, were not hot. It was like they had been sitting for a while, but they were quite flavorful. One dish we ordered did not come. Overall the experience was ok but I wouldn't be in a hurry to return.

Seated right away, server Paris was awesome. We ordered mushroom, Mahi Mahi carnitas Tacos. Also street corn and black beans rice sides. Everything was great the fish was our least favorite, not much flavor. Overall a nice meal. Finished with Flan Dessert. Definitely B Back.

Food was good and our server was GREAT! One of my tacos was a little undercooked, but they worked immediately to get a new one made for me that was excellent. I would definitely go again.

The food here is amazing. Loaded queso - delicious. Salsas - delicious. Tacos - delicious. Tacos can be ordered individually, which is nice for those of us who can't decide on what to order and can mix and match instead. The prices are $2.75 or $3.75 for one small taco, which is a bit steep. The tacos themselves were great though and there are some unusual options to choose from, such as caramelized cauliflower. The mushroom and kale taco left a bit to be desired. It tasted good, but I got it for the red mole sauce it came with, but it seemed like there were only a few drops. The pork carnitas taco was fabulous and had a nice little kick.

It would be great to see a wider beer selection, but what they do offer is decent.

I will definitely go back again.

I had an early brunch (30 minutes after opening) on Sunday, August 26th. The food: Queso appetizer, Huevos Rancheros, and Chorizo & Cheese Enchilada. The food was amazingly delicious. So good. My wife thought that the enchiladas were salty but that didn’t stop her from scratching the skillet for burnt cheese! The service was great.

My only knock on the ambiance was that I don’t really like the seating options for two people. I also knocked them for putting us next two the only other person dining in the restaurant. The whole place was available. They could have spread us out a little.

Went for a casual date night with my husband. Service was really good and attentive. The margaritas were standard. Not as good as Gringos. They tasted more like sour mix than hand crafted. The tacos were really good, especially the pastor! My only suggestion is to go light on the cheese. If this is supposed to be authentic Mexican, I don’t think they put that much cheese on the carne asada.

We had a fun and tasty meal and were pleased by the quality of food, drinks and service. We began with the excellent guacamole served with chips, veggies and salsa. My wife had 3 veggie tacos (she liked the cauliflower best) and I had lobster, grilled mahi mahi, carnitas and carne asada. It was just enough and not too much food. All of the service staff was super pleasant and attentive.
