We used to look forward to dining here when in Syracuse. Not any more. Their beef enchiladas used to be so delicious. We used to get them made with chopped beef, not ground beef. They also used to be way more flavourful. After ordering them on this last visit, we would never consider ordering them again. We also ordered the... More

We were looking for a good place to eat dinner at Destiny USA and my GF loves Mexican fare. She could not choose between Cantina and Cheesecake Factory, so we were going to look at the menus. The host at the entrance was a great guy and, after we decided on Cantina, he brought us to the table and hooked... More

This place is a decent value, but the entrées were bland. The queso was top-notch though - easily the best in the area (but it's not a stiff competition). I'm not sure why Syracuse hates good Mexican food (it seems to chase it out of existence frequently) but if any ever manages to take hold (beyond the excellent but cramped... More

I love Mexican food and I have to say this place was a pleasant surprise. You don't expect really good restaurants to be in shopping malls but this is an exception. Reasonably priced - they hand make the guacamole at your table, only real fruit juices in their drinks and the service is very good. They also have gluten free... More

The service is crappy especially around 4:30 in the afternoon. Thanks for the lipstick from the LAST customer on my margarita. Extra thanks for the attitude and crappy service. Extra, extra thank you for the hair in my husbands food. Never ever will I recommend your restaurant. Train your staff with people/ customer skills and train your cooks and servers... More

The restaurant is located in the mall, a perfect place to end your shopping excursion! The staff is welcoming, and very quick. The at the table made guacamole is fantastic and pairs well with the margarita's! The food is fresh, and comes in perfect portions. It wasn't our first time there, and it certainly won't be our last!

When I saw that they made table side guacamole, I knew we made the right decision to eat here after a long day of shopping for a prom dress! Wow! Very good! I has stump with other veggies and rice, others had the steak tacos and chicken entrees. We were also very happy with the large portion honey lime sangria!... More

We had a positive experience from the moment we sat down. Very personable waiter and (found out later in evening) that the other friendly gentleman checking on us was the manager. Fresh warm tortilla chips, delicious salsas. Fantastic enchiladas. The Mango Tres Leches cake is heavenly!

We had the fish of the day (grouper with a chile de arbol sauce on cilantro rice, a bit pricey but very good) and the enchiladas, which were great.
