Loved the authentic mexican vibe! Great Food and Margaritas! Something different rather than the same ole fast-food.

Being a local, the Cantina is my favourite place to eat; relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and the food is home cooked delicious!

I loved the food. Drinks were great, as well. If I could offer some constructive criticism, I would add an air conditioner. But even in its current state, I would still rate it excellent. Keep up the good work :)

Ate here on a recommendation from one of the local residents and was not disappointed. There was a large group of us and everyone enjoyed their meal. I was just in Mexico a month earlier and the food at the Cantina brought back the memories!

We went to this restaurant mid week around 2:00 pm in the afternoon (they are open for lunch until 3:00 and then re open at 5:00). They kind of embrace that they are literrally attached to the train station and those trains can get loud...More
