Out w/the Bunch @ La Cantina

Authenic Tex-Mex fare alright. Food & service consistently good. Menu features a wide variety of Tex-Mex dishes. Me? I like the Coyote Special. It's all good & there's soft ice cream for desert. Kids love the place. Friday nights are pretty crazy sometimes.

I ordered the Polo Loco and my food was raw and the waiter didnt care... he just said "I dont know what to tell you!"and beans had a hair in them. On the way out the door 2 men were chasing a mouse with a broom and dust pan. I will never walk into this establishment again!!!

Drove over from Louisiana with a couple family members. We had heard good things but unfortunately did not live up to expectations. Food was okay and kind of pricey for what we got. Not cozy atmosphere booths and metal chairs with beer neon signs.

When my husband and I are hungry for some warm salsa and chips, we make the short drive into the city of Orange to eat at La Cantina. Our favorite meal is beef flameado, which we share and it is plentiful. The chile con queso is good, too. We enjoy the frozen margaritas there and I especially love the frozen... More

This is the best Mexican restaurant in Orange, Texas. We enjoy everything we order-especially the Chicken Fajitas Poblanos. The top shelf margaritas are wonderful too. The wait staff is excellent. A special treat is the soft serve ice cream machine where you make your own ice cream cone as you leave.

Orange has more Mexican restaurants than you can shake a stick out, but this is by far my favorite. Wide selection of dishes at very reasonable prices. Full bar serive. Offer some high back booths that give a little privacy when you need it. Service is generally good, but a busy lunch crowd can slow them down occasionally. Plan on... More

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
