The Cantina was rated by locals in the newspaper to have the best Margaritas in Aspen. I really liked their veggie quesadillas. Their Nachos will feed two people, and their burger and fries was a bargain for Aspen at $8.

BAD experience - the restaurant had the look & feel of a chain, Waiters wearing baseball hats and T shirts. Our waiter pushed every overpriced item on the menu, including a $52 pitcher of "premium" Margaritas. Everything on the menu was a "favorite" of the...More

Cantina is a lively Mexican restaurant serving traditional and TexMex food in the Aspen area. Our menu offers everything from enchiladas, carnitas and carne asada to ceviche and wings. All of our food is fresh and prepared in-house daily, and we have daily specials that are always a favorite. We also have a fun happy hour atmosphere, with great drink and food specials. One of the most unique things about Cantina is that we serve our own infused tequila, and have the widest selection of tequila in the area. With the largest seating capacity of any restaurant in Aspen and with four distinct rooms, Cantina is a great place to host your event. We host everything from weddings, rehearsal dinners, corporate events, college and employee events, to Superbowl and New Year’s Eve parties. We can accommodate groups up to 334 people, and have a custom-made dance floor with audio/video facilities for you to enjoy. For the sports lovers, we have plenty of HD televisions and a giant HD screen, so we’re always showing the game.
