Pretty casual place. High quality Mexican food and large selection of beers. A lil bit loud, but it's ormai for this kind of restaurant. Price in the average.

The food was average at Cantina 76. The menu has a few unique items, like fried chicken tacos. Chips and salsa are costly and there are no free refills, though there was not enough salsa for the chips. Service was average.

Sauces, dressings and salsas are made in-house daily, and the bar is stocked with a selection of premium tequilas.
