Always fresh and flavorful mexican food

Cantina 1511 is a consistent go-to for lunch in our office. It's always fresh and flavorful food. I love the table-side guacamole and the salads.

We met family here one night for a birthday dinner. Should've listened to my instinct. There was about 10 of us that ordered food. It took over an HOUR to get our food. When we finally did get our food, my 'burrito' was done cold. When I brought this to their attention, I got attitude and they took it to... More

Great menu - much more than your "average" Mexican selection. Deep and varied - lots of choices, including a set of interesting, fusion selections. We sampled a bunch of eats and loved it all. Meals arrived hot and each course arrived timely. Nice selection of beers on tap plus a wide selection in bottles. Service was great and atmosphere was... More

Food was good. We bright our dog for a late dinner out on the patio. Only gripe was they were very very busy and from start to finish it took us almost 2 hours. We ate somewhat leisurely but food took forever to get out to us.

We had a large party of 8 for a Birthday celebration. The food was ok but the service was awful. We shared fajitas and the meats and vegetables were over cooked. It took us having to physically get up to ask for the tortillas. One person in our party was served tacos meant for another table and the only reason... More

Nice place, nice food, nice people. Not your typical taco place. The pork taco was delicious however the steak one I tried was a bit tough. I love that they offer healthier options. I was able to substitute the tortilla with wheat ones and get grilled vegetables on the side instead of beans/rice. A lot of their menu items are... More

We had dinner at Cantina with friends. Although the service is fast and friendly and the venue is nicely done, the food is not worth the cost and we would rate it average. The main dish (this night, chicken enchiladas, was served cold. The Queso (costing over $9) was not as good as grocery store (sweet, so full of onions... More

I was looking for a Mexican restaurant around where I work and happened to notice Cantina 1511. I went in around 12:30 and the restaurant, though busy, was not packed. My server showed up shortly after I was seated and took my order in a timely fashion. When I asked her what the difference between the $12.00 burrito and the... More

My husband and I were out visiting Wing Haven Garden in the Dilworth part of Charlotte. We checked our IPhones for the closest restaurants . We chose Cantina thinking we could eat something light. This restaurant is located in a Park Rd shopping area with many small shops and bakery. It was a beautiful day outside and this place had... More
