“Fresh & surprising & delicious Mexican in Syracuse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2011

This chef doesn't know how good he is. He experiments with sauces and the results are superior for his simple Mexican menu. He checks on your table and is willing to do different things for you. Special sauce for the burrito on our night was a yellow pepper sauce that was so flavorful and sweet-like!! I think they only serve on Thursdays-Saturdays---call to check. Love the waitress!!! Doesn't advertise, so spread the word! I think out tab per couple came to $37.00!!! -- which included two drinks per person and the TIP! Don't let the outdated, rustic decor shoo you away. Go for it!

“Excellent food at a great price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2011

Steve's Cantina is a small restaurant at the back of an Irish bar in an Irish part of the city, not where you would normally expect to find excellent Mexican food.
The menu is simple and only has a handful of entrées, but both of the dishes we tried were fantastic. The pork dishes have an amazing smoky flavor to them.
The service was good. The tiny staff had many tables to deal with, but had no problem keeping up, and was very polite the whole time.
The atmosphere in the restaurant is not very good, and could use some serious upgrading... you can tell you are in the back of a bar.
The best part of the meal was when the check arrived. Chips with salsa (which were free), 2 large entrées, and 6 beers came to $31. Well worth the price.

“WOW !!! Great Mexican Food In New York”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2008

This Mexican restaurant is in the back of a bar but the food is the best in Syracuse. The pork taco is wonderful. The enchilada OMG !!!! We cannot wait to go back. We had one appetizer and 2 entrees with 4 drinks for only $30.
