  • "Cantina 1511 is our favorite Mexican restaurant to go to in Charlotte. They by far have the best guacamole we have ever had and their margaritas are excellent. We love to sit out on the patio to eat and they sometimes have live music. I would recommend their mushroom quesadilla, any of their tacos but especially the duck taco and their enchilada de pollo is incredible!"

  • "I love this place. The food is amazing and service is always well above par. I can't help but rave about their salsa as well. It is worth the visit if all you get to try is the salsa. I recommend trying Mexican barbecued pork... wonderful! For dessert, you have to get the Cuatro Leches cake."

  • "We love Cantina 1511 and it's a great place to go as a family. Our kids like that they can order their meals "their way" and the staff is very accommodating. My husband tried their burritos and I had the enchiladas de pollo and both were delicious. We love their guacamole that is made fresh as the table."

  • "I absolutely love this restaurant. They make everything to order, so if you want something left out (I don't like onions, for example) they will leave it out no problem. The food is wonderful, service is great, and their queso is the best you'll ever taste!"

  • "We called ahead and made a reservation so we did not have to wait. Half of our group arrived early so we went to the bar for drinks. The bartenders were very attentive, made great suggestions and served us quickly. Once we were seated at our table the speed of service changed greatly. Dinner for 4 people took 2 hours. We ordered drinks and we waited, drinks arrived, we waited for chips & salsa until we were ready to order then we waited for 20 minutes before the appetizers were served. We placed our dinner orders and 45 minutes later the food arrived. We ordered a 2nd round of drinks when dinner was served but we finished dinner before the drinks arrived. All in all the night was great, but don't expect to be served at the speed of sound."

  • "Excellent spot for the whole family or for a date night. The food is always outstanding, especially the "made-to-order" guacamole and the fajitas. Their patio is a great spot for dining outdoors. Dining at Cantina 1511 is always a treat."

  • "I had a salad with chicken on it. The chicken was dry and hard to chew."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Our waiter was not very attentive. Two people ordered meals than contained avocado and requested it be left out. Husband orders his meal with NO mushrooms. Two meals came with the avacodo and husbands WITH mushrooms. He apparently can't hear. He did seem a little abrupt. But the food was good and always is."

  • "The service was really really slow. The server was not very attentive and the restaurant is starting to look a little run down. The wall next to our table had chipped paint."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We love going to Cantina, but this trip wasn't as good as past ones. The kitchen was VERY slow and with two small children, that doesn't always play well. Our server was great about it. Also, the changes to the menu are for the worse in terms of dessert - some very odd pairings and some of the best stuff now missing. We will return, but if we get the same service from the kitchen, we may have to look elsewhere."

  • "Very poor bar service. Martini up, served in an old fashion glass. Out of Beefeaters Gin. Rush , Rush, Rush!! Entrée...frozen then heated and served. No more Cantina 1511, Stonecrest for me."

  • "I loved this restaurant, however my recent experience was negative. Very slow service, waited an hour for food to come out, then order was wrong. Usually everything has been excellent when I've eaten here in the past, not sure what changed."

  • "Me and my husband went there on a date we have a five year old so date nights are very rare these days. Our server was slow and or appetizer inner entrée came out of the same time. Or appetizer was just the quest fundito."

  • "We enjoy Cantina for a dinner/movie night. The Mexican is tasty, a bit Americanized but consistently good. We ordered the family style option for 2. It was a nice sampling of appetizers and the main course was predictably nice although if you were both really hungry you might want to opt for a regular menu item. The patio is nicely tucked away from the parking lot. We were there on a Friday and there was live music on the patio. A nice touch but almost too loud for a dinner setting. I can deal with yelling at a bar but I really don't like having to over dinner."

  • "I had made a reservation to take my husband for dinner. He loves Mexican food. The the dishes we ordered were very good and their desert 'quartos leches' was out of the world."

  • "Dinner could have been outstanding except for the Enchiladas Verde. I ordered the small portion and I'm not sure there was even any filling inside the enchiladas. The dish was very heavy on the sauce. Taste was good, but I have had better items. Guacamole was fantastic as always."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Our 5 person group ate outside. The guacamole, prepared at the table, was very good. Our server was prompt, courteous, and professional. All of the food items ordered were served in a timely manner. The food was hot, tasty, and in large portions. We will return."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Outstanding service along with exceptional food. Everything prepared fresh using perfect combination of seasonings to bring out true flavors of the food. Best Mexican food in town. Waiter was fun attentive to our needs."
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "We enjoyed the restaurant While the food was delicious and several waiters were very nice, everything took a long time! Thankfully, we weren't in a hurry, so that ended up being OK. I had specifically requested the small glass room in the center and was rather forcefully told not to expect to get the room. While I understand there may be a certain policy, I think communicating the policy in a friendly manner would have been better than the way it was communicated. I don't think I've ever made a reservation and was told in an unpleasant manner that we might not get our request because someone without reservations with a bigger party might come in and they would be able to get what we requested. However, the evening ended up fun anyway."

  • "After throwing out a few different options for a birthday party spot (had to be kid-friendly and have a gluten-free menu!) my friends and I landed on Cantina 1511. We were more than impressed by the ease of the reservations--party of 9+a kid on Mother's Day--and how quickly we were seated on arrival. The server was VERY attentive, even on that busy evening. I always recommend Cantina 1511. They have great chili (TEXAS STYLE), guacamole, and their drink menu is definitely worth checking out!"

  • "We love Cantina. We have been several times for dinner and hosted several private parties there and have never been disappointed. Great Food, great atmosphere, and great service."

  • "We love Cantina! The fresh food is delicious! The margarita trio (3 different margaritas) is a great way to try different margaritas without purchasing them separately. The queso fondue is my kids' favorites! The portions are large, so come hungry! My husband and I split an entree this visit and that was perfect. We still left full! Cantina 1511 is our favorite restaurant!"

  • "Had the shrimp pesto fajitas and it was very good. Overall though I still prefer On The Border. Was not impressed with service. Drink ran out twice and took time before refill and checkout took excessive time. "

  • "We had made a reservation well in advance to take our twin daughters to dinner on their 16th birthday. We had requested an outside table, which we were informed upon arriving was not available. We agreed to be seated inside (vs waiting an indefinite amount of time for an outside table to become available, so what is a reservation for?). We received our food 1 hour after ordering and never received our appetizer that we ordered. We were neglected the entire time by our waiter who was busy with a large party. The food was good, however the rest of the experience was so disappointing I don't think I will ever return or recommend this restaurant to friends, despite that we live just a few miles away."
