I can honestly say my husband & I are true travel junkies and have sampled the margaritas from everywhere we have visited....Cozumel, Virgin Islands, Caymen Islands,Jamaica ect.....and none have ever really held a candle to the one & only Patron Rita we order at La Cantina. Not only is the staff & management exceptional ...but the food is truly out... More

A large group of family members descended upon them one evening. They pulled together a table for us, but it seemed like nobody knew which server we belonged to. Finally drink orders were taken. The margaritas with sangria in it was wonderful! Then we had another lull. Then food orders were taken. And then we waited and waited. When the... More

After just having walked out of another restaurant due to problems, this one was a relief. It looked and smelled clean. We had the Fajitas Luis - my new favorite! And the serving size was generous; there was enough for my wife and I to split plus we brought some home. We didn't have any problems with service.

We go as a family for the enchiladas. This is our new family restaurant since our old one is out of business. Best tex mex in... More

Warm salsa is thick and chunky. Ask for the complimentary green sauce too. One of my favorite dishes is the tamales; they are large! Friendly service and daily specials make this a go-to restaurant for us.

Good food, nice atmosphere and their top shelf margaritas are some of the best in town. It a great place for a group of people or for a couple. The staff is friendly and go out of there way to make sure everything is on the up and up.
