The restaurant was neat and clean. The wait staff were friendly and attentive (but not overly so). The food was delicious overall. Chips were fresh and Christ and the salsa was flavorful and served warm. My husband ordered the chili relleno stuffed with seasoned ground meat and cheese with beans and rice. He raved about the flavor and tenderness of... More

If you are looking for the best Mexican food in Port Arthur, you must try La Cantina. I have not tried anything I did not like here. Also, their beef fajitas are worth the visit.

Very good service. Very loud atmosphere but we were at a corner table so that could have been it. Weird salsa. Not quite verde but not standard. We added lemon and salt to it and it was better. Little disappointed in the amount of food on the plate. It was filled up by some upside down tortilla covered in stuff... More

Me and my family eat here often. Usually 2-4 times a month. The staff is very friendly, and the food is always great. Very highly recommended.

We come here several times a year. The food is always good (quesadillas) and coupled with a margarita makes the end of the work day a bit less stressful. The last time we visited on a Friday and a small band started to play on the smoking side on the porch. It was a cool twist. The staff is always... More

Gathered for a pre-party. Margaritas were excellent, very smooth. I had enchiladas, wife had the chicken qesedillas and raved about them. The enchiladas were good but I thought the meal lacked enough seasoning. Same goes for the salsa just wasn't enough kick to it for my taste. Servicewas pretty good considering the large crowd.

This place has great fajitas. They offer several variations on the basic meal. One features lots of vegtables mixed in. Another adds lots of bacon and grilled shrimp. They also have very good home made guacamole.

My go to at most Mexican restaurants is Taco el Carbon. The steak tacos were delicious. The meat was so tender and plentiful. The lunch portion is two tacos, and it was almost more then I could eat.
