Casual dining but so much fun! The Mariachi singers were awesome and played a huge variety of songs. Guacamole was delicious as were the tacos. Margaritas were perfect!

The food was great! Margaritas were outstanding, and Manny was an excellent waiter! We loved the whole experience prior to the Michael Jackson One show. Thank you!

Excellent food and experience. The only downside was that we had stated on the reservation that we had show tickets, but we had to physically get up and find our waitress... For the check, so we wouldn't be late! Ugh.

Best Mango-Habanero Guacamole in town! Food portions are fairly large. The wife and I normally share the excellent Carne Asad. Betwwen that and the Mango Guacamole starter, You won have room for dessert!

We were looking for a place to eat before going to the 7:00pm Michael Jackson Cirque du Solei show at Mandalay Bay. Hussong’s Cantina did not disappoint! Great food, great service, great atmosphere and awesome margaritas!!

Great food, good drinks, friendly and responsive service. They handled our party of 11 like champs. Great set of vegan options. Only complaints are the location in a mall and the incredible noise level.

The food was phenomenal, the margaritas were great and the service was very friendly. But I would not go again nor would I tell others to go unless I was drunk and rowdy because the mariachi band was so loud I couldn't think. My party of 6 almost paid them to stop singing.

We ate dinner at Hussong's Cantina for our 30th wedding anniversary. The service staff was nice and the margueritas are great. We both had chicken enchiladas with verde sauce and they were very good. When visiting Las Vegas we would definitely go here again.

Super chill vibe, a place that locals working nearby or tourists alike can enjoy quick bites and a drink or two. Yes, this is where the drink we know as Margarita was first served.

What differentiates this spot further from the other many restaurants is genuine hospitality of the host (who could be a double for Modelo Especial beer commercial check out the picture) and wait staff. They'll actually come around and make sure that you are enjoying your meal or if you need anything else.

We had steak fajita and fish tacos. Generous portions! And our drinks were full at all times. (No, they were not margarita as we were about to catch a flight.)

5 full stars if corn would be less charred and fajitas meat better marinated. Note: it doesn't mean add more salt.

Well, this place had great reviews so we decided to try it. We were greeted by two very nice hostess and were seated right away with the reservation we had. From that point on every thing went downhill. Our male server looked like he was trying hard and staying busy but just not at our table. It took awhile for him to come around and take our order. He finally did and the food came out in a regular amount of time. My wife ordered the flautas and I ordered the steak/chicken fajitas. A kitchen guy brought mine out and set it up with no plate to eat it on. For 15 minutes the waiter never stopped by our table so I got up and bothered a bar tender at the bar for a plate. The chicken was dry and bland and the steak was also dry. My wife then discovered the flautas was almost ice cold in the middle. She said she thought it was frozen before they cooked it! The waiter took it back and replaced it. She ask the waiter for a salt shaker and he never brought it so she had to go to the bar and get it. If you are just going for drinks and chips and salsa and sitting at the bar then this place is for you. If you are going to eat I would advise against it. There is way better Mexican places to eat in Vegas.

Based on the location it is better than average based on price and quality. Most of the strip has the same issue

Waiter was great. Hostess was great. Food was good. Having said all that there were 3 musicians singing constantly and wandering around the restaurant and they were extremely loud. We gave up on having a conversation and left as quickly as we could.
