We just had dinner for the first time at Cantina Laredo and were quite pleased. We have tried a few "Mexican" places in SW FL over 3 winters here, but this one's menu is the closest to the food we ate while on a culinary vacation in Mexico a few years back. As others have noted, the interior... read more

Have been looking for a good Mexican restaurants. This one is the best that I have found. Very clean. To die for complimentary salsa. It is more "chili" flavored with lots of cummin vs jalapeño flavored. It did have some heat but was not too much. They have a mariachi band which strolls around and plays for tips. This made...

Had a party of 8. Large menu, reasonable prices. Great place to eat at. Had the fajitas; HUGE portion probably could split and have enough.

The guacamole is made fresh at tableside. It is the real deal. The chicken tacos were great. Good service and good atmosphere. On prior visits I had a margarita. Excellent. Will I go back? Oh yeah!

Been going to Cantina Laredo for years, they have some great options for sure. Their fire coffee thing is cool and their table made guacamole is a must have.

We love going to Cantina Laredo. They have a variety of Mexican dishes that are well prepared and flavorful and difficult to find at other area Mexican restaurants. Their salsa's and guacamole are excellent too.
