  • "Excellent job. I was a little worried there would be hiccups on the first night at PRSC but Cantina 1511 did a great job!"

  • "I went not knowing it was the opening night at the Park Road location. The guacamole was the only good thing that moved. Our service was poor. Our waitress barely waited in us. My date got dripped in from a leak. The food was barely edible. I was disappointed bc this was not my experience on east blvd. I'm hoping these were just opening night kinks that will get worked out. If not they have lost a routine customer."

Food was excellent, good size portions and good price. it was my first time there, my wife has been there a few times before and was happy with all her past meals. We'll be back for sure."

  • "Recommended as a good place for Mexican while we were visiting family in Charlotte. Being from Texas and being used to Tex-Mex you never know what you will get in other parts of the country. This place was fabulous. Great selection of food and drinks. Everyone in our large group loved the food. Would highly recommend."

  • "Cantina is probably my favorite restaurant in Charlotte. Maybe it's because I'm addicted to their tableside guacamole, maybe it's because I've been there 5,000 times and always left happy (& full). But back to the review this visit.. We stopped in around 2:00 or so, missing any Sunday lunch-ers, and the noise level was definitely below usual. The three of us weren't too hungry, but had to make a stop at our favorite locale before my mom had to fly back home. In addition to the mandatory guacamole, we ordered their antijitos platter, which was four small dishes that they rotate on their menu. Let's just say there wasn't a morsel left on that plate - so much for not being hungry! I will always recommend Cantina - even when they move... :("

  • "I informed hostess we were there to watch WorldCup...she attempted to seat us in dining room at a table far from any TV. I repeated we were there to watch World Cup and needed to be able to see a tv close up. She recommended the bar...but saw that was really not a great option for 3 so we were seated in other room to last of entrance... it worked. Nohn out server was great...he instantly saw us for who were...3 foreigners watching World Cup... he did not intrude and provided prompt service."

  • "Cantina has always been very good. I have never had a bad meal! I was (and continue to be) a little nervous because they have been (recently) changing their menu more than they used to. HOWEVER- it has continued to get better and impress! Kuddos to Cantina, happy to be a long-time (picky/foodie) customer and excited to experience the evolution!"

  • "This east blvd spot is great for innovative Mexicali cuisine. Not your chip and dip and queso cantina. Fresh ingredients and chiles to light up any heat fetish. They don't dumb it down for the gringo! Great drinks and killer guacamole!"

  • "Wonderful food, wonderful service, great time! Would recommend this to anyone who wants fresh mex!"

  • "Ever since we got our first Groupon for Cantina 1511 we've become regular customers. The food is always good and so are the margaritas. We sat outside on the patio for dinner on this occasion, and enjoyed the singer/guitar player. Our service was friendly, but uncharacteristically slow. The Pig Wings appetizer is amazing."

  • "I went here because I heard great reviews and wanted to try them! I will NEVER go back again. I reserved the fish bowl room, because I went for my birthday dinner. First of, they took thirty minutes to bring out chips and salsa. It's a Mexican restaurant. That should be the first thing out immediately. THEN after they brought they chips and salsa they wasted the salsa ALL OVER my sister! It was ridiculous. THEN we decided we needed a drink after that, so I ordered a margarita. They brought me my margarita and I took a sip and looked in the glass and it was a QUARTER in my margarita at the bottom!!! This put the icing on the cake! Who finds a whole quarter in their drink?!! This had to have been the worst restaurant experience ever!!"

  • "The restaurant was great. The service was good. The food was excellent. However, the wait for the food was ridicules. The manager made up for it in the end by taking some money off the bill, but 50 minute for your food to come out is Krazy. Good thing the foods taste was good. I had the slow roasted ribs with mash that has super flavor. My wife had the marinated steak fajitas and could not finish them all. They were even better the second day. My daughter has the nachos, they were ok. The guacamole was amazing. I strongly recommend this place when they move to their new place."

  • "Waited nearly a half hour for our drink order. Food was decent, but overpriced. Glasses sat empty for another half hour before they were refilled. Had to flag down waiter several times. Service was very slow and lacked attentiveness. Will not be back. "

  • "Extremely loud. Not the place to go unless you don't want to talk to who you went with or scream your conversation."

  • "I probably shouldn't rate the service as harshly because my friend and I went there on Cinco De Mayo, but it was still bad. I still love the food. I got the Chicken tacos and they were fantastic. The guacamole and queso are very good. I am very snobby when it comes to guacamole, and this one I was very pleased with. Very Fresh. They are also decently priced. Their margaritas are really good too."

  • "Cantina used to do a lot of catering for my sales job and I always loved the food! As a caterer they were so reliable; I never had to worry! Almost five years ago my territory changed and I wasn't able to afford the catering expense with delivery fees. So now we drive down from Lake Norman for every special occasion and any other time we can! At least 1-2 times per month! It is still my very favorite restaurant and the only one we drive into town for on a regular basis! We use open table as often as possible...many times even scheduling on our drive down :)"
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "The portions, quality and freshness of the food was fantastic. Our server was very friendly and helpful. The timing of drinks, appetizers and main entrees was well-spaced. My only complaint would be the comfort of the booth. The backs are almost completely vertical and the table sits too high with very little space from front to back."

  • "We visited on a Friday night and we were seated on time with a reservation. It appeared that there was just one server for a busy part of the restaurant with a couple of large groups. We waited to have drinks refilled and a long time for our entrees to arrive. The food was just mediocre. There are better places to go in Charlotte for better service and more satisfying Mexican food."
