I've been here a number of times and I'm never disappointed! Its a great place to bring friends to try something delicious and unique. I'm already looking forward to my next visit. I was there on a recent Saturday evening at 5:30 and had to wonder, though, why the hostess felt compelled to inform me that my table was booked at 7:30. It felt rather rude and unwelcoming. I have no control over the efficiency of your kitchen or servers. There must be a better way. A sign? A note on your website?

Best Mexican restaurant ever in my opinion. Homemade hot sauces, crema, and tortillas. Absolutely delicious. Will come back. Excellent service and food is to die for.

Disappointed they no longer have chorizo burrito. The chorizo taco wasnt as good and was overcooked. Still a great place to eat.

Restaurant is on the smaller size but the vibe more than makes up for it. Super friendly staff, attentive and quick to respond. The food was to die for! It was so good we wanted to relish every bite. All around excellent experience.

Food was absolutely amazing, never disappointing. The restaurant really needs to have an option to hang jackets especially with the winter months coming. All of our chairs had an unfortunate “wobble”. Other than that, had a wonderful time!

Next time I will ask for a low table. Considering the age group hight table wasn’t best. Also, drinks take a long time to arrive.

Great service for a big group who like to eat. Everyone was happy, especially my husband, the birthday boy. My only feedback is that I wish I had been told you were on a limited menu. I was looking forward to your fish tacos and churros from my previous visits.

I would eat here every week if I could afford to. My only gripe is the grilled octopus appy has disappeared. Bring it back please. The junction margarita is perfect. The la truck tacos are a must. The burritos are big enough for 2 people. The atmosphere and feel of this place is just right. Ps I like it here.

It’s great that Cantina was packed (usually a sign of a good restaurant) but the noise level was so high we could barely hear each other. I’m not a fan of having to shout over dinner. Bad acoustics in the place or too many people packed in. Our server was polite on the surface but had an air that made us feel somewhat unwelcome. Food was ok but small portions for the price.

Service was excellent. I scored the atmosphere a 3 because the a/c was not doing its job and the music was a bit loud for us to talk over. The food was excellent, although I thought it was a bit pricey.
