“Good location and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

If you like fresh thin corn chips dip in salsas, you will enjoy sitting at an outside table in Cantina Laredo, watching the fountains and fire and listening music in the Landing in Branson. Normally, I do not like Mexican food so I went to there just for the location. However, I did enjoy my dinner in there. It is an upscale Mexican restaurant with friendly service and a good value.

“Great place to unwind after a day of walking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Came here on a whim with our family - it's a very nicely decorated and upscale restaurant, but also caters to kids. Our family with small kids came in and had a great time. Bottomless chips and two different types of salsa and kid's meals in the range of about $6 a piece made for a good time. The wait staff was very helpful and patient with us and we loved the ambiance. We would come here again!

“Between 3 and 4”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

I am not generally fond of this kind of restaurants. Upscale chains located in tourist traps. This is a Mexican "theme" restaurant, but not an authentic one. It's right in the heart of the tourist center of Branson and is geared toward an average tourist visitor. Having said that the food was well prepared. Salsa very good, Guac indeed also very good. I had a catch of the day. Decent grouper in a tasty sauce. But all of it is very much altered for American taste. Prices are above average, but for the location and quality it's to be expected. Service was ok, fairly typical for a higher end chain. If you want a pleasant nice meal while in Branson, this fits the bill. If you are a Mexican food connoisseur, you will not be satisfied.

“Best Mexican Chain Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

Wow! started with White sangria, then table side guacamole, but, oh my! the salsa was simply amazing! So good we asked our server for a container to go - she gave us a quart! If only we could buy it in a jar! Dinner was flavorful and not smothered in ranchero sauce & cheese. Original foods and ideas. we have already looked for this restaurant in other cities we visit. We wmay even go out of our way to get to another one. Loved this place!

“Very good and great view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

At first the hostess sat us outside right by the entrance in full sun, even though there were plenty of tables in the shade with a good view of the fountains. Our server was very sweet and moved us to a table with shade and a great view. The guacamole made at your table was delicious and so were our meals. You also get 2 different salsas. My husband loved one and I loved the other so it worked out great. We really enjoyed sitting outside watching the fountains, but I went inside to use the restroom and the inside of the restaurant looked really neat too.
