“Another superb meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

We don't eat out too often, as to be honest we always feel as though we can do better at home! The older we get the less impressed we seem to be.
There is an exception to this. and it's Me Me's in Shrewsbury. Superb food , great portions, and all served with passion and enthusiasm. It always helps when the guys that own the place are always there!

“Outstanding Mexican food and great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

Booked for a table of five on a Saturday night during a very busy period, arriving to a warm welcome and attentive service from the waitress and kitchen staff.
The first thing I noticed was the low price of the mains which immediately raised suspicions of small portions or sub-par quality. On arrival of the food however, all doubts were banished as we were treated to large portions of fantastically flavoursome Mexican dishes all of a very standard. My pulled pork sandwich and chicken and chorizo quesadilla were outstanding. All the guests thoroughly enjoyed their food and coffee.
I really cannot stress how highly I recommend Cantina Cafe, will be visiting regularly from now on.

“A wonderful surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

We were taken to this restaurant by a lovely local guy when we came to Shrewsbury for the weekend. Sitting in the kitchen was fab, we would go for this over the restaurant every time!
The food was great- lots of veggie options which makes a lovely change, and 3 of us did the chicken wing roulette which was hysterical!
The only bad thing about this place is how far away from home it is- top marks.

“Keep doing what you're doing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

Great atmosphere, I love the open kitchen downstairs which is fab when with a group of friends. Food is devilishly good! Went Saturday night for a quick bite to eat, as per usual bit off more than I could handle with a chicken burrito, the other half went for a killer BBQ and bacon burger. Can't fault it! They churn out some pretty nifty cocktails too which is a bonus! Cheers guys!

“Cant fault it. Epic food and really nice staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Popped in for a bit of lunch after christmas shopping. Its a real shame its tucked away up a little passage cause its a real gem!!

The staff are freindly and attentive without being in your face and making you feel hastled and the open plan kitchen is a great idea. We actually watched our lunch being made and the chef that was on that day was a top guy... Made us both laugh, real salt of the earth! Which sums the place up really; profesional yet friendly and approachable.

I cant recommend this place highly enough, service, food and ambiance deserve 6* on here. We will definatly be back in the new year to try out the Mexican Cantina Cafe in the evening.

The guy who said go to 'Telco' clearly has no idea what hes talking about!!
