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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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 $$$

    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.
