I don’t know where to begin. Friends popped in before heading over to North Bowl. Enjoyed handcrafted Margueritas (no pre mix stuff). Chips and guacamole, chicken empanadas, fish tacos, fried tenticles🤷🏽‍♀️ all was absolutely appetizingly delish! Our server, Dylan was a cutie pie and quite...More

Very good guac along with a great selection of tequila and margaritas. The ceviche they once served was no longer on the menu or specials board but the food we did order was delicious!

Cantina is a casual Mexican dining place with interesting drinks and typical Mexican food. The location is the busy 2nd street with seating inside and outside. They also have garden seating in the rear. Service was good and the food tasty. Recommended for casual dining

Decided on Mexican due to location within walking distance. The food was okay...nothing that great especially for the price. The service was not great either. It took us 3 tries to get a drink for my son because it wasn't alcoholic. It was so loud...More

I usually do not order meals here, as I think you can do better at El Camino Real up the street, but nothing can beat their Margaritas! Go during happy hour when pitchers are half off and you'll walk home a very tipsy and happy...More
