This place is the definition of mediocre. Food might be a notch below that, actually. Most of it tastes like it came from Gordon Food Service. The cheese dip appears to be melted Velveeta. Salsa is meh, chips are meh, drinks are meh...prices are fair for the portions, service is mediocre. This place ranks bottom of the list for Mexican food and we include Taco Bell in that list...

If you like Mexican food you should put this place on your list. Authentic Mexican fare that always tastes great and leaves you wanting more. Portions are large and always cooked perfectly. We visit as frequently as possible. Great margueritas to go with the great food.

By far one of the worst meals I've ever had out and while the restaurants in South Lyon are generally mediocre, The SL Cantina beats them all. My chile rellanos where not only completely inedible but they were nothing more than two barely cooked/steamed green peppers with some type of 3' deep beef/bean slop pour over them. Just nasty food. Place is a dump. Shocked this place is even in business.

They always have some young person who has no clue about service. Food is very average. HOWEVER, the bartenders are usually on top of stuff, and the chips+salsa is always my go-to while there. Bartenders and salsa are what is preventing me from giving this place a 1.
