Good, basic TexMex food, reasonably priced and nicely served. We were there on a very quiet Sunday evening and still had good, hot food with good flavors and generous portions.

We were surprised to have to pay for chips & salsa at this restaurant. We have never eaten at a Mexican restaurant that did not give you free chips & salsa. Then salsa was so hot, we could not eat much! We shared the steak & chicken fajitas for two. It came with 2 types of shredded cheese, lettuce, tomatoes,... More

In the area seems to be the best Mexican around. Had (expensive) fajitas with skirt steak and chicken. Steak was delicious, chicken was good to but had a smokey flavour to it (the seasoning used) which I happened not to care for. Also had a "loaded" burros which was very very good. Margaritas were excellent. Dessert.... Not so much... Had... More

We stopped in on a Saturday night and had no help from a server, when we asked about a table outside, the bartender, who didn't even look up when we walked it, rudely snapped "No there is a private party". We left after that. Due to the high reviews on this site, we decided to try it again on a... More

We stopped by the small but pretty well stocked combination grocery/liquor/ice cream shoppe at Palmanova Plaza to pick up a few supplies on our first night at Palmas, and found the Cantina right next door. Although it didn't look like much from the outside, we were hungry and tired so we gave it a shot - with low expectations. We... More

We didn't want to have to travel far after a day of adventure and we heard great things about this place, so we figured we would try it out. We sat at the bar and ordered a couple of margaritas when the guys next to us gave us a heads up about the 2-4-1 burritos. We ordered up a couple... More

This is a cozy place in Palomanova Plaza, great spicy salsa, good chips, excellent fajitas. I would have given 5 stars, but the guava cheese roll with ice cream could have used cream cheese or ricotta cheese instead of cheddar cheese. It just didn't pair well. Everything else was great though.
