  • "Had reservations for four and were seated right away. The menu had lots of excellent choices. Not just typical greasy Tex Mex. House margarita was good and the queso was delicious. Tacos al Carbon and Enchilada Veracruz were really tasty. Would definitely go back."

  • "This made me miss Texas and their large portions. The prices were more than reasonable and the service was great. The Monterey Jack fajitas were amazing."

  • "Took the SO out for Valentine's; it was great here! The staff was wonderful and professional, and the food was delicious! As a college student, I would recommend this place as having great food for a reasonable price."

  • "Food was ok, not great. There really wasn't anything to dislike or to get excited about. The service was pretty slow as the kitchen struggled to keep up with the service. One of our deserts (Mexican apple pie) arrived with the ice cream warm and the pie cold so much so that the server thought it best not to even serve it. Good choice probably but we didn't have time for a redo so no desert for me. Our waiter was ok but spent a decent amount of time trying to flirt with one of the members of our party which made him less attentive to the rest of the table's needs. Four of us had dinner and no one left thinking we'd go back anytime soon given the other choices in Austin for this category of food and atmosphere. Your mileage may vary."

  • "Amazing food. Fun atmosphere. Great service...very patient with 8 ladies and a man who were excited to start the night off right with some Cantina Laredo margheritas. We took a long time to order the food, but didn't feel pressured. Great time."

  • "We liked this restaurant a lot. It was a group of 10 people. The service was great, and everyone seemed to enjoy what they ordered. We all shared one of each of the desserts, which were great. Much better Mexican food than a chain restaurant, to be sure!"

  • "Food was great. Server was outstanding. Had 6 month old baby that did not feel good and they accommodated any and all needs. Out other two children and my wife and I did not have a need that was left wanting."

  • "Experienced Cantina Laredo for dinner after church on Christmas Eve. They were about 1/2 full but really struggling to keep up with orders. Waitress did not take our drink order until about 5-7 minutes in, and after 10 more minutes, they let us know they were out of Moscato. Food ordered and arrived timely, but refills on drinks and chips only occurred after dinner arrived. Fish Tacos, enchiladas and Fajitas Tres were our entrees. The fajitas were terrific, but Fish Tacos too spicey. Enchiladas were fantastic. We also ordered dessert which was the highlight of the meal as the Mexican Apple Pie and Mango Tres Leches was wonderful! $130 bill for 4. Good meal, but service was average at best, and definitely over-priced."

  • "We enjoyed a delicious meal of tacos (al carbon), enchiladas, queso compuesto and of course their signature guacamole, made tableside. All we delicious, and enjoyed by everyone in our group. And lest we forget, the wide selection of margaritas and other craft beverages were a perfect accompaniment to a wonderful evening in Downtown Austin."

  • "We gathered for a pre-concert meal on a Saturday evening, early around 5:00, with reservations. Six in our group, a very nice table ready in the center of a room with fresh chips to be devoured upon being seated. The service was nicely paced, and glasses didn't go unfilled for long. Dessert was offered and appeared to be delicious. The Cantina dining room provided a great background for friends to catch up and new friends to be made."

  • "I got the new chipotle pollo fajitas...excellent choice. The mango pepper marg was also tasty. Table side guacamole and queso laredo are a must and could be a meal in itself."

  • "My family of 10 (and 2 infants) couldn't wait any longer for dinner Wednesday night before thanksgiving. The staff at CL immediately took our reservation and took great care of us. This thanksgiving, I was thankful for CL downtown and their hospitality! Will Binford President Austin Concierge & Guest Service Association"

  • "Great place to bring a group for a meal. Staff is friendly and warm, and they prepare guacamole or dessert for your table, if you order it. The following items are a must-try when dining here: • Queso dip - warm cheese with seasoned ground beef on top • Mango Tres Leches cake - moist, tasty layers of cake • Guacamole - lots of flavor and a bit of kick"

  • "This is just great food! If you are looking for cheap Mexican food, this is not the place! We had delicious rare tuna and wonderful salmon! Now you can get a great Taco Salad, but it will be better than you've ever had before!"
