Reasonably priced (but really small) drinks. They apparently invented the margarita here but serve it to you blended in a tiny cup. They are good, though. Pretty loud place, can be fun.

Great atmosphere and extremely cheap and strong margaritas. Would definitely come back here. It was pretty quiet when we went.

Age is the only thing that make this cantina famous, and the fact that most of the town grew around it and that Margaritas were invented here. Once inside, you´ll see there´s nothing particular about it. The staff is kind and attentive, and they serve...More
