Naldo’s Mexican Kitchen

When Old Is New Again

Yesterday as I was running errands, I noticed Naldo’s Mexican Kitchen has re-opened!  YAY!  Of course, I stopped in and met with Alejandro who was so gracious to let me check out the new décor and menu so I could share it with all of you. So, if you saw my Facebook or Instagram posts, I was hinting about going to NEW old places.  While Naldo’s has been here for a while, they remodeled and revamped the existing structure with updated, new festive features.  Watch for the name to change soon also.  Tequila Cantina will be the new name which is fitting for their extensive margarita and food selections.

When I first came in, I immediately noticed the new light fixtures.  I love them!  They really brightened up the dining room.  Walking back to the bar area, I noticed the new modern design. I love it!  Outside is the patio, which looks relatively the same as before and still a comfortable atmosphere.

What About The Menu?

After browsing over the new menu on my first stop, and knowing it was Taco Tuesday, I came back later with a friend to enjoy the 3 for $5 Tacos. Every Tuesday Naldo’s is offering three ground beef or chicken tacos for just $5.  I opted for the chicken, and they were yummy.  There are so many options you might expect, but we noticed a few authentic dishes that I haven’t seen at many other places here.  You’ll just have to stop in to see what they are.  They also have a special Lunch Menu that looks great.

While we were too late for Happy Hour, which is Monday through Friday 2:00 – 4:00 p.m., I still enjoyed one of their many margaritas – a Mango Margarita muddled with fresh fruit.  MUY BUENO!  Can I also tell you how fast and friendly our service was?  Cesar did a fantastic job taking care of us!  Our drinks and food were tableside in a matter of minutes.

  1. Been there when they reopened with a party of 10. Food and service was excellent. Plan on going again and again and again.

  2. Sounds great. I will try it soon. Thank you Village Eats.

  3. Took 2 relatives to Naldo’s Mexican Kitchen and were very pleased with quick seating, managing me with my walker, and quick serving of nachos. Drink orders were taken immediately and dinners were ordered from a large selection of choices.. All 3 of us enjoyed our different orders and even took some home in take out containers. Will certainly visit Naldo’s the next time I want Mexican food.
