Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The tacos were amazing, so fresh! We both had the El Chapo Marg and it knocked it out of the park. The décor was sleek and modern, definitely a must try if you ever stop in Galesburg.

We just moved from Chicago (after 25 years) to Galesburg. This spot is so cool, so meticulous about the details (visually with their decor choices, in the drink elements, and in the freshness of the food). Our eyes and taste buds were delighted! Food menu...is small but mighty. Atmosphere is casual but makes you feel special. The owners and team are genuinely interested in your experience. Grab your best friend, your favorite family member or even go solo - right now. You won't be disappointed. Unless they aren't open. Then camp outside and wait. JK. But it's that good.More

The food is amazing. I always get the steak tacos and the drinks are unbelievably good and unique. It feels like a place you’d go on vacation and that is a wonderful thing.

We had ordered carry out before and the food was great but finally, with COVID restrictions starting to lift, we were able to have an inside, sit-down experience at La Cantinita and we blown away. The drink menu is extensive and so well thought out...(not to mention delicious) and the food dishes used fresh ingredients that were so flavorful & tasty. LC is geared to be more of a tequila bar than restaurant so we didn't expect long food menu but they don't need one, either. Everything is perfectly planned out. The bartenders were friendly and attentive (but overly so to the point of being annoying); they offered advise and gave use information about the different drinks (did I mention the drinks were delicious?). We ordered the El Presidente and a variation on the Paloma cocktail...both were flawless -- perfectly mixed and refreshing (and neither my boyfriend nor I drink tequila as a rule but these drinks have changed our minds). We cannot wait to go back especially once the weather warms so we can take advantage of the outdoor patio. My only suggestion is to lose the gambling machines. Regardless, it won't deter us from going back again & again; we highly recommend.More

Went to lunch with a co worker and had a steak burrito. Was the best burrito I have ever eaten by far. Cannot wait to go back and try the rest of the menu.

La Cantinita has a beautiful yellow front door that leads into an inviting lounge. The food is fresh & delicious. The drinks are fun with beautiful garnishes. There is outdoor seating in the back too.
