We had the tacos on Taco Tuesday. Flavors were fresh, bold, and unique. LOVED this restaurant! Friendly, quick service and a good value for the food. Will be back next time we're in town!

For someone who is not a fan of tequila I love the margaritas!!! Service is always quick and attentive and the food is fantastic. Highly recommend visiting while you're wandering around the downtown core

Fabulous, as usual! So many choices and great prices. Taco Tuesday means 4 tacos for the price of 3! Wonderful, fresh variety and great lunch prices. My fav: THE ARGENTINE Red Wine Braised Beef Served Over Roasted Squash & Kale, Garnished With Chimichurri Salsa

We always enjoy the Cantina, especially on a sunny patio day! I dont eat huge meals so a little taco or 2 is an affordable snack with a cold Mexican beer with friends.
