Visited during lunch, no wait and service was prompt. Ordered a chicken sandwich it was okay but the side salad was delicious with chickpeas, corn, avocados!! It was a good visit!

“Okay but not typical Mexican”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Atmosphere and service were very good. Parking was crowded at lunch but no wait for a table. The menu does have a disclaimer that this is a different take or interpretation of mexican food. Personally I prefer typical Mexican restaurant food but the folks I was with seemed to enjoy Cantina 1511.

“Keeps Getting Better and Better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

I have eaten here many times over the past few years. At first I was not very impressed. But lately the food is better, the service is better, the decor is still the same which is really nice, and the lunch menu is good. Was there yesterday with a friend of mine and we both thought that our meals were very good. The portion sizes are large, the food tasty, and the beer was perfect. This is now my favorite Mexican restaurant. Try it out.

“Great tex-mex”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Several locations in Charlotte, all consistently good. Fresh guacamole made at your table and no reservations needed. Good bar, too.

“Very enjoyable Mexican restaurant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Tried Cantina with friends. Service was excellent, margaritas (house) were very good. Very good variety of entrees. Two of us had the same dinner and it seemed like it was not as hot (temperature) as we would have expected. However, I'll caulk that up to an exception as everything else was great. Would definitely go there again.
