A cut above typical Mexican

Yes, Cantina Laredo does do combination plates, like so many Mexican restaurants, but those aren't the featured specialties. Likewise with fajitas, though the restaurant does them very well, and sizzling to beat the band when they arrive at your table. What Cantina Laredo provides is more of a... read more

Judging a Mexican restaurant is easy by the fajitas. Sometimes good, sometimes bad. Had the mixed chicken and beef. Chicken was better,which is often the case. Not much else other than a bunch of onions and a small amount of guacamole. I would have liked some cheese, perhaps some tomatoes. Need more than meat and onions.

We went there for lunch, had reservations and got seated right away. The service after r that was poor. The food that we had was nothing to repeat. Neither of us enjoyed our meal. The zucchini was only warmed and could have used more cooking and the chicken was very dry. This was the second time we had been there... More

In a nut shell, its a different take on flavors and presentations of conventional Mexican food. I have been there enough to have sampled about all of the items on the menu, and have enjoyed every dish I was served. The table mixed Top Shelf Guacamole is a must. But here is the tip of the day, its not on... More

Sat on patio. Table wobbled so much that we had the 6-year-old try to wedge something under a leg so we weren't spilling drinks. The margarita tasted like water with a lime in it. Waiter fairly inattentive. When the entrees came, they tasted like they had been reheated--badly. Just well below what you would expect from a dive spot, and... More

Cantina Laredo bills itself as 'modern Mexican' cuisine - and it truly lives up to that description. The food was light and fresh - two terms I don't always associate with Mexican food at many restaurants. The salsas (regular & hot) were both delicious. The 'regular' salsa has a bit of heat, but it is balanced and tempered. The hot... More

Used to like this place very much for its ambiance and food. Not a chance. I will never go again. We waited about 30 mins because a party of 55 diners reserved a room and were eating entrees at roughly the same time. The hostess excused the lack of seating because of this. When we were seated it was really... More
