Food was less than average Tex mex. service was slow. Not sure if they were busier than they expected or had people call out but they were behind. Managers walked around but weren't helping out. Bland food and tasteless salsa. Waiter hardly spoke English.

The food tasted fine, and I have no complaints there. The problem was with the customer service. I love beef tacos and cheese enchiladas, so I specifically ordered a meal that came with both of these items. Unfortunately, I received a beef enchilada. I first pointed it out to the young assistant who filled our water glasses, because I didn't... More

I'm on the night shift so I had chicken and beef fajitas for lunch. I ate everything it was good. I ate there every time I come to Orange tx.

I got the fajita nachos and very little meat was on them. Tho the chips were great and the actual meat I did get was good. It was just very little meat from what other places serve. Berry berry Margarita is excellent. Service is slow. Mainly because they were short staffed.

We were celebrating my husband's birthday so decided to go back to La Cantina. We'd been there Saturday night and our bill was a problem but they seemed to get it straight so decided to go last night. Seated ourselves in the bar and waited, another trio came in, seated themselves and were immediately served chips, salsa and drinks. When... More

This place is hit and miss, at best. We sometimes go here , trying to support local restaurants, but it is very inconsistent in the quality of food and service. I think I am done...

My friends and I have always enjoyed going here after work because you are able to order off the lunch menu until 5. The last few times the service has gotten worse. We said the last time we went might be our last.

We decided to give this restaurant a try. It has been hard to find good Mexican food in this part of the country, but this one is a keeper. Our server was very good! Our food arrived quickly and was steaming hot! (We both ordered the fajitas.) The frozen margaritas were very tasty and plentiful! And, their prices are good...... More

The atmosphere is lively and friendly. You can relax and enjoy some of the best Mexican food you will ever eat. It is one of our favorite restaurants . The hot sauce is served warm and they bring you green sauce also. We love the polo locco, and tortuga plate.

Thank paulajim2015
