Yesterday DH and I drove to Marshall to have lunch at Don Fernando's. It is a 45 min drive from Marks/Herndon area in NW Fresno.

The building was an old stagecoach stop and not much has been done to change that atmosphere either inside or out.

The food is as good as I remembered from his place in town. The lunch menu seemed to be basic Mexican (tacos, enchiladas, etc). But the dinner side of the menu was available at lunch. This was great because that's where the interesting items are. DH was delighted to see that he had kept the Lamb Colorado on the menu. It was as delish as ever. I had a skirt steak with a small homemade enchilada on top that oozed wonderful cheese. On top of all of that was a mole sauce from heaven.

Bad news: Wine list consisted of 3 or 4 bottles. Out of desperation, we chose the Clos du Bois which was very drinkable.

Good news: Corkage is $7. Next time we'll come prepared.

The server is Fernando's son. A delightfully nice young man.
