Fernando’s, a Latin cuisine restaurant, located at 14135 Southwest Frwy. in Sugar Land is an amazing dining experience. There never seems to be a full house when we have dined there and we just can’t seem to figure out why. They have impeccable service, excellent decor, and the food, well, I am a big fan and have heard nothing but excellent reports from anyone who has paid them a visit. You really should give them a try.
Dinner entrees are priced from about $16 to $50. Salads, pasta, fish, chicken and steaks. I try something different each time and have never been dissappointed.
They are open for lunch Tuesday through Thursday from 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM, dinner Monday through Thursday from 5:30 to 9:00 PM, Fridays and Saturdays 5:00 PM to 10:30 PM. Take a look at their website for a complete menu: http://fernandosrestaurants.com/

At around 8:30 AM, the second structure just collapsed without intervention.
