The Cantina Laredo is one of our favorite places to stop on our twice yearly visits to Columbus. Located at the east end of Polaris Shopping mall just off I 71, it's easy to get to even on a busy Friday night. This time, however, my entree was very average. Bummer. I ordered the fish tacos. Opps. bad idea. Of... More

Different margaritas to choose from. For the price, go with the top shelf margaritas. Not much difference in price from the regular margaritas.

Likes: the service here is impeccable and the food quality is exceptional. Ordered a ribeye that was not on the menu and it was one of the top 5 steaks I've eaten in a long time. The waiter kept the drinks refilled, the chips and salsa filled and offered a spicier sause if we wanted. Dislikes: Seated originally at a... More

I suggest the steak fajitas and the tamarind margarita. If you sign up for their email list, you will get notified of specials and free items. Yesterday they even had a $10 combo fajita special all day long. The food here is some of the best Mexican food in the Columbus area and the drinks are great.

Their con queso appetizer with a side of warm soft corn tortillas is one of the best I've ever had. Bartender knows how to mix up a fresh squeezed margarita with premium tequila. None of that cheap pre mixed stuff. The hot salsa cannot be beat. Cantina's chips and salsa cannot be beat. In fact, there isn't anything I've gotten... More

Coming home from Orlando via Port Columbus Airport and took a chance on getting a table at Cantina Laredo at Polaris Mall. Now, we were worried it's the weekend of Black Friday sales and the OSU vs. U of M game, so we didn't know if there would be a huge wait. Happily there was not! Immediate seating and chips... More

I recently visited a Cantina Laredo in Nashville. I was so surprised to hear that they have a restaurant in the Columbus Area. I tried Camaron Poblano Asada and Fajitas Tres in my two visits. Both were amazing. The Camaron Poblano Asada contains a steak on a pepper with cheese. So good! The Fajitas Tres are basically fajitas with shrimp... More

Having dined here in the past with service above and beyond, I took advantage of a Groupon offer. I have an odd food allergy and was basically told by the waiter (Sanchez) they could serve me unseasoned chicken. I ended up just having the table side guacamole (which wasn't near as good as it I remember it) and no meal.... More
