This was my first visit to the Park Rd location. I have been multiple times to the Stonecrest location. I went for lunch, the food and service were great. I had the Marco Polo and Carne Asada tacos. The Marco Polo is a particular favorite of mine. The food is fresh and never disappoints. I will definitely be back.

Visited Cantina 1511 on a busy Friday evening and after a 30 minute wait we were seated. Wait wasn't a problem as we were able to get drinks at the bar. Staff was very attentive and personable. Loved the Crab and Avocado Quesadilla and the Queso Dip!

Lucky to have a sunny warm 77 degree day in Feb!! Dined al fresco and enjoyed the yummy enchiladas, hubby had chili and chicken tortillas soup. Service was a bit slow as everyone decided to come outside and enjoy the sunny warm day!!! Fun family atmosphere as well.

My wife and I were staying the night in Charlotte and craved Mexican food. We didn't want to drive very far in the ever increasing Charlotte traffic. I did a search and found Cantina 1511, not far from our hotel. We were greeted and seated promptly. Our server, Melina, was outstanding. We told her we were first-timers. She patiently explained...

Located in the Park Road Shopping Center. Came here for the 1st time for a birthday party. A very busy place and a bit disorganized. We told them we were with a group and had reservations yet they tried to seat the 3 of us at a small table. When everyone arrived and placed the orders the meals did not... More

We ate dinner here with a social group for dinner and drinks. We ordered a burito and a salad. The food was average and the environment was comfortable for a social gathering.

Been several times and have tried a couple of things. The quest is pretty authentic and yummy. It always seems to come room temperature but the flame below heats it up after a few mins. We tend to eat too much of this... The steak fajitas are surprisingly good - with mushrooms and squash the unlikely accompaniments to the normal... More

My wife had been told about 1511 a few times. On a night, without the kids, we decided to give them a try. Great service and wonderful food. On a Thursday night there was about a 15 minute wait, well worth staying though. Table side guac and queso looked great, we didn't do that; however, others near us did.

The service was good but the food was over cooked and had no flavor which is hard for Mexican. Usually the food is great but the last few times it's been lacking.
