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!

In an area that embraces different culture, this restaurant breaks the typical Mexican restaurant mold. In fact, they are on a whole new level. Everything we tried was nothing short of what one may find in any world class restaurant. We had a few different...More
