Great Food

We stopped at the Side Street Cantina for dinner, based on the reviews from Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. The food and service were excellent. Make sure you go with an empty stomach, because you get a lot of food with your order. The table side guacamole was awesome, and the fajitas... read more

After reading a lot of reviews of the Mexican places in the area we decided to walk the 9 blocks to this one. And it looks like a little side street restaurant then you get the food! Service was fast and the food was amazing! We got a variety from chicken fajitas, shrimp fajitas, enchillada's, and pork carnitas everything was... More

We were hesitant to try this place based on the reviews. We tried it out anyway and it actually wasn't bad. We sat at the bar and had the happy hour margaritas. We ordered dinner and it was also good. The salsa was fresh and the little side of mexi ranch was a treat too. I had the steak quesadilla... More

This little place was really close to our hotel and was a pleasant suprise. The food was very good and not priced nearly as high as other places nearby.

We may have been there on an off day, but a lot of menu items were not available, and the ceviche tasted like it had been sitting in lemon juice for several days.

This place is by far the best Mexican food my family and I have had. The servers were great and everything came out hot and delicious. I don't think there was a moment that I had to wait to ask for another drink or napkins. I ordered the chicken quesadilla and the chicken was seasoned very well. Definitely a place... More

The food was amazing and service superb!! The Margaritas were delicious. It is located on a little side street and well worth the visit.

This was probably the best place we ate while staying in Virginia Beach. In fact, it was so good we ate there twice. The ceviche is very fresh and tasty highly recommended.
