After several times trying to have dinner at The Mission Cantina we finally succeeded Friday night. We arrived early as the place is always crowded. We were seated right away and the waitress arrived asking us if we would like to start the night off with cocktails. I had a grilled pineapple margarita ,which was delish! The regular margaritas were very tart, almost undrinkable. The food was excellent, I had a chicken burrito that was filled with chicken, rice and black beans. It was served with a small salad that was fresh and tasty. The other diners I was with also enjoyed their meals as well. I am sure we will go back, because of the food, fast service and that fact that it is right over the mountain from where we live. It was an excellent choice.

You have to go! They are busy because the food is very good. It's like a neighborhood pub & a great Mexican restuarant. Rare find!

This a cool restaurant. Very popular, so get there early. The line moved fast. Good service and the tacos were delicious. Each taco was packed with flavor. Most mexican restaurants give you free chips and salsa for the table. This place does not. Also, I thought the salsas could have had more flavor and a bit of heat would be good too. Definetly recommend a visit to Mission if you are in the Amherst area.

Website indicates that they are open for lunch at 11:30 Mon-Fri. We arrived at 11:45 to find that they were not open. They should correct their hours on the website!

I was grossed out at the thought of fish tacos. Where's the beef?, one might ask. Boy was I wrong. This place makes you want to chant: fish! Fish! Fish! like a bunch of frat boys who root for the Marlins. Wash down the fish tacos with a nice Marguerita vintage '15 and she'll say yes to date #2.
