Love the chicken nachos here. Free chips and salsa are great for when I'm hungry and don't want to wait for the cooked food to hit the table. Service has been fast and friendly. Haven't tried any other dishes besides the chicken nachos.

The Cantina Laredo is a Mexican restaurant and this franchise is located on the D Concourse inside the Dallas - Ft Worth airport. It is part of a regional 18 state restaurant chain with about 125 locations. I went for breakfast on a Thursday morning while waiting for a connecting flight. While it is a Mexican restaurant I just had... More

We had a mostly decent experience here. Chips were warm and not greasy. Salsa was tangy and cold. Carnitas was slow cooked and tasty. And there was so much that we couldn't eat it all. A chicken with shrimp dish was not as successful. Chicken and shrimp were both a bit overcooked. But it was still edible. Slightly expensive for... More

I fly in and out of Dallas 90-120 times a year making connecting flights been here a few times before and had the chips, the salsa I just can't stomach like eating blended tomatoes with a touch of salt. Had the chicken fajita tacos not even close to fajitas, just boiled chicken with diced tomatoe and slice of avocado. I... More

Been here before and enjoyed, but went this time to make sure was where I wanted to bring a group of 14 out of town guests the next week. They sure lost that opportunity to make some money. The place was less than 1/3 occupied, but kitchen took over 45 minutes to turn out two simple meals. Margarita was 98%... More

Ordered the Laredo and it was out before I could eat 2 chips which makes me believe it was prepared before and just heated up. Tastes good. Not impressed with the server. I asked for him to keep alcohol separate and he put them both on te same ticket. I asked him to separate them he said his manager was... More

As a frequent flyer, airport food ranks as low as the IRS. Service was great and food a good value. My go to dish at Mexican restaurants is the fajitas. I got the combination chicken and beef. Chicken was a bit dry but the steak was seasoned very well. Worth the trip!

Overpriced, food was basic tex mex, salsa and chips were solid but had to wait 20 minutes before we got that and drinks service was so slow if you have short time don't bother. Coffee was undrinkable. Queso tasted like Out of a can. Positive was meat was tender enough to cut with the plastic silverware they give you. Love... More

Fresh, delicious food and the service was efficient so we could make our flight. If you love Tex-Mex this one is for you. One should not leave Dallas without trying it. It is one of the better chains you will dine at. It was also nice to sit up high above the noise of the terminal so we could enjoy... More

My colleagues and I had a two hour layover at DFW in Terminal D just at dinner time. We went up to Canttina Laredo because it looked most liked a "restaurant" and we didn't want the fast food options on the main floor. We made a good choice. The service is good and knowledgeable. Most of the wait staff have... More
