We took the short drive to Orange just for a change of pace. We were in the mood for Mexican and was hoping that La Cantina just across the state line into Texas would be a hit. Unfortunately it fell short. The fajitas was pretty boring. The salsa was warm, but still not spectacular. The flour tortillas were fresh but... More

My wife and I have been driving to Orange to eat at LaCantina for the last 10 years. The top shelf margaritas are the best and we have got to know our servers and they treat us like family. My favorite dish is "Polo Loco" and my wife loves the enchiladas, but we also love the mixed fajita platter. We... More

I think that this place is pretty famous for their margaritas and other drinks, but we love the food there. They have great food and reasonable prices and the service is always good!

We had a party of six 4 adults and 2 children. We got the mixed fajita platter for 2 and it had shrimp,chorizo, beef, queso, and some other stuff. It was enough for all of us. Also it was a Saturday night and the parking lot was full but we were seated immediately. Don't forget to get your free ice... More

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 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.
