Order the grilled chicken nachos. DANK!
great new restaurant, great food
1 plate of nachos is easily enough for 2 people, the food is great!
The strawberry vanilla bean sangria is the best in the area!
Tuesday evenings appear to draw all the young ladies. Seriously, not a dude in sight.
The ginger bartender is the best and so calming!
The short rib nachos are the best thing in the world. There's more than enough to share, but you won't want to after you taste how good they are! Skinny girl margaritas go best with them!
$8 top shelf margaritas in Wednesday. So incredibly delicious. The sangria is killer, too. Sit in the bar area for excellent service by the ginger.
VERY dog friendly!
Mmm vanilla bean strawberry white wine sangria
If you like cantina 18, you should try 18 seaboard.
I've really liked everything I've gotten here. Meals come with really nice side salads with chunks of avocado. Good vegetarian options and the queso is amazing!
11.00 for 2 crappy tacos with way too much goat cheese. This place has gone way down hill
Its so yummy. My server was amazing and the food, quick and delicious. Im upset I left my to go box right on the table when we left!
The manager has a super sweet ass!
The Mahi & BBQ pulled pork tacos are the best!!
Beware of the chicken house salad--sounds healthy but there is an entire salt shaker in it. Ask for less salt!!!
Great food, good people. Duck Confit taco is where it's at.
The Chicken Tacos are amazing!!! You have to try them!!!
Go to Cantina 18 and get the duck taco. You will be glad you did.
Their steak burrito is an excellent choice. Their guacamole leaves a little to be desired though...
Great spicy margaritas and monitors!
My personal fave is the chicken soft tacos, but the pork dishes are very popular. Dog friendly!
Great queso and guacamole!
Fanatic food and service.
Strawberry Vanilla Bean Sangria and any of the Tacos!
if you like the shrimp tacos, ask for the "old school shrimp tacos" they have chipotle crema on them and they're amazing. they'll make them special if you ask!
Love this place! Best sangria and service ever(:
Awesome black bean nachos!
The goat cheese guacamole is yummy!
To reiterate another's tip, the chicken nachos are HUGE but yummy :) The chips are a little greasy but otherwise, very good food!
Good service. The manager took an interest in our requests concerning my wife's allergies. The server was also very helpful. The Adobo salmon was excellent.
Mix and match any two or three tacos for a great meal.
Margaritas are off the charts! Staff is great, and the patio is nice. Food is average.
Strawberry. Vanilla. Sangria.
I love this place! The strawberry vanilla bean sangria is a must! The mahi mahi tacos are delicious!!!! And definitely get an order of guac
Pitcher of margaritas! Brought my friends puppy with us and sat on patio. Perfect summer night. Chicken burrito :)
Short rib nachos!!! Enough for 2!
Literally has the best chips and salsa I've ever had! Make sure you try the strawberry sangria too which has a hint of vanilla and tastes amazing
PEAR Sangria, not peach! But you MUST TRY!
The Peach Sangria is perfection. Perfectly balanced and tingles your tongue!
Even though the posted closing time is 2 am, they'll kick you out at midnight. Eat quick and drink quicker :(
Shrimp & Grits is an excellent choice for Sunday Brunch!
if you havent had the chicken taco you have never had good food before. also great draft selection
mango/cilantro shrimp nachos...go get em
