Andrades emphasizes hospitality. Before you enter the restaurant, a small sign at eye level repeats the familiar saying Mi casa es su casa, and with delicious food and friendly service in a delightful setting, the owners and employees take that phrase to heart.
The walls and tables inside are filled with colors, just like a plate directly out of the kitchen with your order. Golden cheese on an enchilada with maroon sauce, orange Mexican rice and brown refried beans on a green plate with teal, yellow, and red tiles on the table give the eye almost as much of a treat as the taste buds.
Kids eat free all day Tuesdays and Sundays. Theres live music on Fridays and Saturdays. Its tough to not have a good time at Andrades, especially with a 2-for-1 margarita special every day at lunch.
Andrades serves quality flautas, tostadas, enchiladas, tacos, fajitas, chile rellenos, burritos and almost any other Mexican specialty. There are plenty of fantastic options on the menu and they give you enough for a midnight snack hours after your meal so pace yourself with complimentary chips, bean dip and salsa before that main course.
