This restaurant recently moved from East Blvd, to the Park Roads Shopping Center. Great idea. Parking is now available, in the past, I was never sure if I would find a place to park and it was a hassle. Plus, it seems that the restaurant is bigger now. The food is very good, somewhat traditional Tex-Mex and is presented well.... More

One of the first spots I've eaten in Charlotte and it was really good! The guacamole had the right spice and flavor - not quite sure why it's done tableside since the person making it didn't say a word to us, just put it together and put it on the table, but it tasted good, so I'm ok with it!...

Visited with 5 friends on a Saturday evening. This is quite new location, but they really had their stuff together. All six of us ordered different menu items-and all six were very pleased with food and service, which was very attentive. Our waiter had a warm "can-do" attitude which turned out to be very helpful to me since I have... More

This was our first visit to this location after several times at the Rea road restaurant. This spot has a different feel to it, but it is nice. We found out about the brunch and were excited to try it out....we were not disappointed. We had the avocado bake and the huevos rancheros which were both excellent. We would definitely... More

Had an opportunity to eat at Cantina 1511 while visiting the Charlotte area. We had a very nice experience and enjoyed the meal. Not a chain, which was perfect. Chips and salsa are awesome! Ordered the fajita which was quite tasty. Plenty of tv's to watch sports and very friendly atmosphere. Would definitely eat there again the next time we... More

This was my first time at the Park Rd location since they moved from East Boulevard - I have to say it's noisy and cold feeling - the prior location (which had horrible parking - new site much better) had a warm feeling to it and I spent many meals there catching up with friends and relaxing. New site? not... More

We like Cantina 1511 at the old venue- but the new location is so nice- cute outdoor area and bright and fun. (I miss the booths) but the food and service was terrific. I usually get the fajitas- probably among the best I've had anywhere and my husband had the enchilada's that he said were fantastic! You won't be disappointed!!

You want great salsa, light and crispy tortilla chips, creamy and chinky table side guacamole that will knock your sombrero off? Well find your way to Cantina for those special treats. My friends said that the sangria was some kind of tasty, I can definitely vouch for the sweet sweet tea and the ice cold water. I had the Marco... More

Cantina 1511 is an excellent choice for Mexican cuisine in Charlotte. Perhaps it is a little upscale compared to other Mexican restaurants but it is still very casual, reasonably priced and boasts a very friendly staff. We are never disappointed with our food and the portions are quite large. Often I have enough left to bring home for a great... More

Cantina 1511 is a popular restaurant, The food has been very good every time we have visited and they have done some awesome catering at local events we have attended. Service in the restaurant is generally good, but can be slow. Make a reservation or the wait can be a while. Since, we said it was "definitely, upscale" -- we... More
