I love La Cantina's food! The Chile Relleno's are GREAT - the Poblano peppers are so fresh! Juan, our waiter, did an EXCELLENT job of making sure our drinks were filled and food was served quickly. Always a GREAT place to eat!

Went there for drinks after work. Was not disappointed. The mango margaritas on the rocks were awesome. Started off with case so for an appetizer. For dinner we had the mixed fajitas. The portions are large and the service is good.

Nice food at a great price. Servers are nice, food is excellent. You gotta try the chicken gravy on fajitas and rice. Well worth the charge. Buttery, savory.....over the top! You will not be sorry.

Had lunch there. Good combo options and good margaritas. Service was good. GF was a bit difficult due to the language barrier.

We chose La Cantina based on our fellow TripAdvisors' recommendations and we're happy with our choice. The first things I noticed in the casual dining room were the press making fresh tortillas and the staff's shirts advertising "Scratch Kitchen." My tamales & enchiladas meal and...More
