Fajitas were prepared great. Large serving size and very tasty. Burrito was good. Retried beans good, guacamole was excellent. Price was great for the location. The waitress was polite and efficient.

It seems this place does a big business with their margaritas...and they are pretty good. Unfortunately, it also seems that everything else is bad. The place is dirty, dark and tacky to the extreme. The food approaches average but does not quite get there. All the food we had was very bland and most items were over cooked. Service for... More

this place is a bit dark and I could do with a good clean, staff seem to be friendly, salsa dip was very watery and had no spice at all, had a burrito and this was just plain and nothing special, if you are hungry and can not find anything else then this is a ok place I suppose

If you want Mexican food that is somewhat bland, you've found the place. The prices are reasonable and the portions are more then fair. Coming from Southern California, I've had my share of Mexican Food and this Mexican Food seems to be a bit more bland then I'm use to. They have reasonable drinks and the wait staff was quite...

We started with 46oz margaritas which brought us much joy. Jalapeno nachos and chili cheese dip were very good. Meals were large portions and cooked perfectly. I had the big burrito pacifica with shrimp and scallops. I'm a big eater but brought half of my meal home. Service is friendly and welcoming. Prices are very reasonable.

I've never had a bad experience at the Cantina and I have been there dozens of times! The staff makes you feel like family, the food is delish (large portions, great prices), and the place hasn't changed in years. Its so familiar at this point that if anything did change I worry it would disturb the amazing flow its got... More

We tried this Mexican restaurant on a Monday evening the first time after passing it on Sunrise many times. There were only a few other diners, and we were offered a nice table by a window. Service was excellent- drink refills, checking back, on food, etc. It was easy to hear our conversation, but could not determine if that would... More

Close to the beach and the Hilton Doubletree Gallery One hotel this typical Mexican Cantina was delightful. Our server was lovely and very helpful. I have dined here a few times and the food has always been delicious. The portions are very large and the value for money was excellent. Looking forward to returning on my next visit to Ft.... More

Had a good dinner over there. Ordered hot cheese dip as appetizer to share and both fajitas after that. Portions were large and tasty. Draft DosXX beer ice cold. Liked the place.

Hello all. Here in Fort Lauderdale. We just had dinner here. No one recommended the location. We were walking back from the mall and saw it. It's a fairly large place. We were greeted right away and sat down. They brought us one basket of chips and two smaller sized plastic cups (if you will) filled with salsa. You only... More
