    First timer and I tired the BBQ Brisket enchiladas and they were really good

    Young Mike · June 29, 2015

    Prickly pear frozen or on the rocks is delightful.

    KEISHA Watkins · May 20, 2015

    Shrimp tacos are amazing. The service is always A1.

    The queso is not bad. Pork taco was very good. Smoked chicken taco was good too! Reasonably priced as well.

    Place to dance Salsa :).. Nice!

    Food was just ok, but the service was horrid. Much better Mexican experience to be found elsewhere.

    Tables are consistently dirty...crumbs from the tortilla chips are usually on the seats. The margaritas are pretty good. I agree with most of the posters that service is terrible. Food is hit or miss.

    Salsa dancing

    Great place to dance salsa on Saturdays, good beer, around $5 each

    Avoid if you can. Overly salty, greasy, fatty faux Mexican fare. Used to be better but quality dropped. Maybe someday they'll fix the problems in the kitchen. Service is generally good.

    Paul Jorgensen · June 18, 2014

    Food was good but nothing special. Drink was watered down and I'm almost wondering if it even had liquor in it. Our server was an AWFUL creep who sucked at his job but the food runner was very nice.

    Was the old menu any better... This is noe the premier salsa/meringue spot in Detroit.

    Told my friend i wanted a place to watch the last lions game, she wasn't kidding!! Gotta be 40 TVs in here :)

    The new menu is HORRENDOUS

    Bridgett Marie · December 4, 2013

    No more free chips... They are trying to copy Imperial (in Ferndale)... But without success. Changed menu... Not in good way. Also got rid of ground beef - kids hate it too. Bye bye Cantina!

    white sangria is delish!

    The food here never disappoints. Best guacamole ever! The service, however, is consistently poor.

    Typical chain food... Meh.

    Horrible service, I have it a 2nd chance & it was the same. Avoid this place.

  • Dave P.

    It's basically an ESPN Sportszone bar in the Mexico pavilion at EPCOT Center.

    Dave Phillips · April 21, 2013
  • Bob W.

    Amazed how you can have 48 items on the menu using 6 ingredients...

    Bob Waltenspiel · April 21, 2013

    Great food. And awesome atmosphere. Definitely coming back for more

    the skinny margarita is delicious whether you're trying for low cal or not. skip the others and go straight for the skinny.

    Lisa · January 20, 2013
  • Julie W.

    Service here is hit or miss (mostly miss), but they have some decent late-night happy hour specials and lovely salsa.

    Julie Wesolowicz · January 17, 2013
  • Kelsie H.

    Not impressed :/

    Kelsie Harvey · November 12, 2012

    Watch out, they watered down the Jack. The waiter gave me another when I confronted him

    Margaritas are too sour IMO but Daddysgurl likes them.

    D Town96 · September 22, 2012

    All you can drink bloody marys shaterday & shundayyy ! Merp :)

    Megan Sackett · August 30, 2012
  • Lindsay L.

    HORRIBLE margaritas!!! Could only choke down about 5 sips!!! And the Street Taco dinner is the size of an appetizer at best. Salsa tastes like watered down ketchup. Such a waste of $$$

    Lindsay Lea · August 22, 2012
  • Steffi

    I would go only for chips, salsa and guacamole. Nothing special about their food. Beef enchilada tasted like packaged taco meat.. Rice was dry. Definitely wont come back.

    Steffi · August 8, 2012
  • Jimi R.

    They salt the rim of every glass. Even their beer glasses. Good God, what happened to Memphis Smoke?

    Jimi Radcliff · July 28, 2012

    Impressed by food AND service.

    Paul Kampe · July 21, 2012

    Slow service followed by bland dinner. It takes a really bad meal to complain about it. I will not go back.

    Kenvin Downey one of owners a very cool ol friend

  • Jason

    Try the Prickly Pear Margarita on the rocks

    Jason · May 20, 2012
  • Brian B.

    Worst service I've had in awhile. Waitress screwed up my order, than charged me extra to "fix" it by putting a chile rileno on the bill.

    Brian Blottie · May 12, 2012
  • Paula M.

    Eric is THE best waiter EVER!!!!

    Paula McNichol · May 6, 2012
  • Alan K.

    Watery canned refried bean in *plastic cup* - really?!? Good salsa, guacamole is a bland green paste.

    Alan Kimber · April 16, 2012
  • Christina S.

    Loved the grilled veggies enchiladas.

    Christina Strutz · April 2, 2012
  • Shay J.

    Shay Johnson · March 25, 2012
  • Lauren P.

    The beef enchiladas with mole (mo-lay) sauce are the best!!

    Chips and salsa delish! Yummy margaritas too :-)

    Courtney Smith · January 21, 2012
  • Kristen W.

    I love this place! Service is slower depending on the night, but the food is ALWAYS good & fresh. & the drinks are super strong. Great to eat if you have time to chill. The 100 tvs are a bit much, tho

    Kristen Wolff · January 16, 2012

    I'm not one for leaving negative tips, but I did get Food poisoning the first time I went here.
