Good service

Our server was great! She really knew the menu and made good recommendations for us. We liked that they brought out multiple salsas from the beginning to try, and even though the food isn't the cheapest or the greatest, its a good date spot or a spot for dinner and drink with friends on a weekend.

It seems like they are trying to make it an upscale Mexican restaurant. Having smaller and more expensive dishes though will not work. The menu (food and drinks) did not have many options. The food was just ok and the service decent. Pretty loud restaurant with a poor value for money.

I came here for dinner. The menu is limited and not many choices. The drinks on the other hand are amazing. The food didn't impress me. My food wasn't bad, but this is a place to go drinking with friends. I had the Avocado Enchilada. They did well with it, but I wouldn't go back for the food.

Many dishes now come with cooked sliced zucchini and non-descript rice. This mediocre side replaces the bright salad with mango and jicama that was formerly on the plate. The enchilada artichoke dish has gotten smaller. I would skip this restaurant and find more tasty food for the price. The changes to the menu are not an improvement.

Ordered takeout from Cantina - Kids mini tacos and chicken salad were good. Food is a little pricey, but a higher quality. Staff were friendly. They accommodate larger groups and still provide great service.

Lots of memories at this chain. Missouri, Texas and Arkansas. Service was very good because we arrived before the noon crowd in the holiday season. Food was not the quality we have had here or at other stores. I wonder if the noise level could be reduced if there was some type of acoustic ceiling?

If you go there my recommendation would be to check your bill carefully. We were charged for extra sour cream & guacamole in spite of us refusing it & being told by the server that we won't be charged for it.

This place is really great. Every time we visit my Mom in Little Rock, we eat here. This Thanksgiving my brother and his wife joined us. The dishes were all excellent, the service was friendly and prompt, and the variety in drinks was perfect for a Mexican place. Do not come here thinking you are getting a mess of enchiladas... More

I have been eating at Cantina Laredo ever since they opened in Little Rock. My daughter and I first discovered the restaurant in Branson and was impressed with the food.So we were delighted when they decided to open here in Little Rock. One of the reasons that seems to keep me coming back is not only the great food but... More

We had a very refreshing meal. Salads. Fresh ingredients. Just the right balance of dressing and fruit. Great service and atmosphere. In a word: Fun! My first time here. Can't wait to try out the menu.
