Quick to go lunch at DIA Terminal B. 2nd floor center. Had the Naked Taco Salad with pork and side of guac. Fast and delicious. Very fresh.

“Huge tasty breakfast”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

I was hungry at breakfast time (7:30 AM), and the fast-food restaurants around the Great Hall looked unappealing. Then I noticed the Cantina Grill. I like spicy food, and their plate of Huevos Rancheros came with a choice of chile topping (I chose green, and it was hot!), a fresh flour tortilla (wrapped in foil to keep it moist), as well as whole beans (black or pinto) -- for around $7. Delicious and very filling.

This was great chow at an off-airport price. If you like Mexican food for breakfast, check it out.

“Sticky, dirty tables”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

STICKY tables with black grit in the 'pockets' of the faux stone finish.
GROSS!!
It wasn't the finish or coating on the table because the side edges of the table weren't sticky.
What is with the throwaway PLASTIC utensils?
I was there on Wednesday Dec 19 at about 1PM

“Very good for an Airport Restaurant”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Cantina Grill is a good place to grab a bite and a drink before toddling over to your next flight (in Terminal B of DEN Airport). The food is good American-Mexican fare (not Mexicana Autentico), and the staff is attentive, efficient and takes pride in their work. The Manager on duty when I was there was "Sofi", and rans a tight ship. She was coaching staff to keep up the pace (most customers there have tight connections, and they respect this), with a sense of humor and guidance that rallies her team to deliver great service with a sense of fun. Zach the bartender was great; personable and funny. Overall, a great experience at one of my least favorite venues - an airport restaurant. You won't feel captive here, and will enjoy your meal and more importantly, make your next flight.

“A nice place to go if you must eat at DIA”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

A review of an Airport restaurant, really? Well, it comes in handy if you want something tasty on the run. Cantina Grill is conveniently located on the upper floor of the B Concourse. The food is served promptly and the staff is quick. I love the Chile Verde and the seasoned pulled pork tacos. Yum! BTW, it is also cheap.
