Took a chance on a place that was unknown. So pleasantly surprised. We had a great time trying their selection of 18 hot sauces. And then we had some amazing tacos and tortas. We will definitely be back. Thanks for a great experience.

Are you looking for a cool Mexican dining experience? Try this place. It’s not your average Tex-Mex restaurant. They don’t have their liquor license but they have some great drinks. Try the Metabolism...surprisingly good. They offer multiple different sauces to accompany your food. It’s fun...More

M Cantina delivers with authenticity, flavor & creativity. The food is delicious, definitely not commercial as with most mexican restaurants. It's not a large restaurant but they keep it charming and clean. I will be back!
