The restaurant is popular and busy, big and noisy. The staff was friendly. The food was really good. The service was good and our food arrived surprisingly quick for how packed they were.

Over the years, I’ve come to expect mediocrity in Mexican restaurants as the norm. That all is ends at the Cantina. My cheese enchiladas with red mole sauces were truly extraordinary as were even the beans and rice. The place was very crowded and the...More
