Should have ordered the fajitas, as the smells were very good. I had the Nogales, it was good, but not very flavorful, which was repeated surprise for the other entrees. It was busy, and the service reflected that, but was just fine.

When we want Front Street Cantina food we go to Lemont which is sad and inconvenient. Not sure what happened and we were under the impression that the recipes were consistent from location to location. Must be the ingredients and brand they use. Too bad because its a great location and terrific service. Hope they can improve things, we loved... More

Enjoyed Margarita Specials. We started our journey with the Queso Fondito...a little dry..more of a cheese melted over chorizo and veggies than a fondito. Tasty. My Spicy Pork dish with an Arbol Sauce was great. I liked the Pinto Beans and rice. My man ate the Fried Cod Tacos. They were tasty served with black beans ...nice Flavor. The decor... More

Average experience for Mexican cuisine. Food was mediocre at best and lacked flavor. Salsa, Guacamole and tacos were very bland.

Was there for lunch on a weekday. Food was very good, salsa was tasty & fresh, and service was excellent as well. Had the 2 taco plate with their fish tacos which was really good. Will definitely return.

My girlfriend and I have eaten here several times when we have gone to wander about downtown Naperville. The food and service are consistently good. We typically order the taco and burrito platters. The portions are large with leftovers always there for the next day. The margaritas also are quite good. Nice place. Great value. Great location.

I was disappointed when the Front Street Cantina in Geneva closed recently. I had to try the one in Naperville to see if it's as good, which is definitely the case. I had a hot pork dish (but can't remember the name of it). It was good, as were the rice and beans. Fortunately the server kept refilling my water... More

We use to live around here and ate here all of the time. They have great food, portions, and price. The sangria is very good according to my girlfriend. We never had a bad meal in this place. In fact the Mexican Pizza here is one of the greatest thing I have ever ate.

Thank Steven J
