Food is your average mexican #11 but at night this turns into a place to hang out and enjoy music and margaritas.

We were looking for some good food without spending a lot of $$ and the Side Street Cantina more than filled the bill- at any price. Delicious food, excellent and attentive service and reasonable prices- the trifecta, as far as I'm concerned. Some of the the best Mexican/Tex-Mex/South of the Border food we've had...and we've lived in Texas and California... More

The food was out of this world. the atmosphere was very quiet and relaxing. There was nothing to dislike about this restaurant. And it was within walking distance of the hotel.

food is very good, but menu can be a little confusing unless you ask, and even then it's not real clear. Limited on tap beer and below average ambiance.

We loved this place so much we went here twice - one for dinner and then once for lunch. It was amazing! I love Mexican food so I was extremely happy to find a great one in Virginia Beach. I had the Chimichangas. The three of them came with rice and beans and a great side salad (with avocado) for... More

We expected the usual tex-mex style of cooking here, but found that it was more of a south american style. They served typical chips before hand had a nice bar with lots of local clientele but the food was just not what we expected. I don't care for this style, but others probably love it. Service was very good and... More

Coming from nyc there are a lot of Mexican restaurant here, I must say this is one of the top ones I've been too. Service was amazing and food was even better. Don't let the outside fool this place was great. We went once for dinner and once for lunch great both times. Best restaurant in the area

Went here two days in the row we so much liked the fresh fish ceviche they make out of tuna, mangoes and sliced red onions. Caution - real habanero pepper garnish! Kids loved the chicken tacos and quesadillas. Don't order premade Guacamole, go for the table side one. They open at noon, so if you are an early lunch eater... More
