We randomly stopped by with a craving for Tex Mex. The table host did not seem very happy to be there and insisted on seating us at a table for exactly 4, no more, even though there was ample seating even after we left. So...More

Cantina #1 in Mall of America is a great way to escape for a while. You immediately notice the fun atmosphere when you walk in. There are palm trees and surf boards to decorate the bar and restaurant. You imagine that you are on an...More

A group of friends and I ate here on a Friday night. The weather was nice, so the restaurant wasn't very busy. The food was good- I recommend the tacos for sure! The portions were good (especially when you add in chips and salsa) and...More

Super disappointing! We called a day ahead & reserved a table for a large party & were told we'd get a military discount. We arrived & they weren't ready for us. Then it took forever for drinks, longer for food & even longer for our...More

I don't know why I didn't look at the reviews before we chose this restaurant. We picked it because we like the way it looked on the outside. Sort of like a retro tiki bar. Sadly, the theme doesn't carry through very well in the...More

Find somewhere in he Mall to eat. Portions are big - really big l, which meant we didn't eat a lot of food. Too spicy, no subtlety to any flavor. Steak ordered medium rare was cremated and the beef with the fajitas was tasteless. Guacamole...More
