Ranked #20 of 72 Restaurants in Chesterton
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 August 2017 via mobile

At first I thought this was a local joint so I was disappointed to find out it was a chain. However, the food and drinks are quite good. Chips and salsa are served when you sit down. I love the white cheese dip. I usually enjoy the three tacos which are smaller than most Mexican restaurants and they are NOT served w rice or beans. Service is good. Not a huge restaurant so it gets crowded on Friday nights.

So anytime I pick up a family member from Chicago's airports, I inevitably need a break on the return home to Michigan. Exit 26A off I-94 has been the choice for twenty years. Fast food chains ad nauseum...A real gem is tucked behind Taco Bell....EL CANTARITO...fresh authentic la comida! Best ever shredded chicken chimichauga...tierra y mar...well seasoned skirt steak and a skewer of shrimp...a bean y rice burrito, a vegan delight. Decent price, very courteous n quick service. I highly recommend EC y Chef Alfonso's EL CANTARITO!

This is a very nice place if your looking for a Mexican restaurant. The portions were good sized, salsa was chunky and yummy. The guacamole is above average. The prices are were reasonable. Service was attentive
