Don't go! Horrible! Miss the previous owner!

I don't know where to begin. Frank A. waiter was rude, obnoxious and unfriendly. Fajitas were ok. Too bad he didn't give us the leftovers we asked for. Wouldn't order them again anyway. Final bill was wrong. It was kid night. I have kids, but wasn't expecting kids night. Service was slow. Food... read more

This restaurant is extremely busy on the weekends, do yourself a very big favor and schedule a reservation before visiting. We scheduled a reservation and were very happy to have done so because the wait was 1 hour and a half long. We were seated promptly. The service was very good and friendly. The food was hot and prepared perfectly.... More

I went here with friends a couple days ago. I wasn't sure what to Expect. It's a very nice restaurant. The service was fast and friendly. They make guacamole at your table in front of you. Can't get any more fresh than that. The prices are fair and the menu has a wide variety.

I have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere at Cantina 1511 and last week, tried out the new location at Park Rd. Shopping Center. I was disappointed. It seemed like they raised the prices of the food, or maybe it was just that the wide open, loud, atmosphere made the food seem more expensive than it should be. I used... More

If you want overpriced bland mexican style food this is your place. The brisket quesadilla with a very small salad was $16. The chips came to the table ice cold and there were 2 bowls of salsa dropped off with no explanation of hot or mild. Just a needs some work.

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
