They really have the best guacamole (which is notably cheaper at lunch) and I love their chips. There are many types of tequilla although I am quite happy with their regular Margarita. They serve some creative entrees. We enjoyed the Bacon & Brussels Sprouts Huarache and Brisket Enchiladas. I previously had the fish tacos which were wonderful. The decor is bright and colorful.

We always love a fun dinnner at Cantina my family and I come regularly and enjoy it very much. Definitely get chip & guac for the table! The mushroom huarache is seriously one of the best things I have ever eaten...we get it everytime and love it!! The tuna cevich tacos are outstanding (my son actually gets 2 orders of them as his entree). The grilled chicken (that I alway add to the Chop salad and it comes with the El Carbon taco) is the most tender and delicious grilled chicken you will ever eat...not an exaggeration!!

Our waittress Alena was fabulous, very energetic and made several good suggestions. The special appetizer, grilled octupus was exceptional and so was the special entree, the braised short ribs. We still wish they would put the Tres Leches dessert back on the dessert menu though in this instance we were too full to eat a dessert. The food was exceptional.

Always a good trip to this authentic Mexican restaurant. My wife has several food allergies and the chef (and the wait staff) always bend over backwards to ensure her needs are met. Parking can be a little tight, but once inside there is ample room for patrons. The menu can be overwhelming, but the servers are very knowledgeable and can help you find the right meal to fit your tastes. It can be a bit noisy depending on the size of the parties (and the age - it is a kid-friendly restaurant). All-in-all, we have dined here now dozens of times despite not being local. We have recommended it to friends who have thanked us for the tip. Give it a try, they have yet to disappoint us.

One issue - I asked to have leftovers wrapped and when the server was collecting plates, she dropped a small dish that had had some sauce in it on the floor. She picked it up and set it ON THE PLATE NEXT TO MY LEFTOVER FOOD! I was appalled as the other dish had been on the FLOOR! Gross!! They did not touch but she had another empty plate she could have set the dirty dish on. Please school your staff on good and safe practices with food!! I hesitate to recommend based on this.

It was very noisy in the main dining room after 7 pm. Recommend eating early so you can hear. Quesadillas were just okay....kind of bland and lukewarm. Bit it is very energetic atmosphere for a night out!

Cantina Feliz never fails to satisfy. Welcoming environment, great margaritas, and satisfying food. Whether you want filling dishes or more healthy options, you will find what you want. I like the al carbon tacos- perfectly seasoned steak, chicken, or fish that I can eat with the soft taco or alone. The service is always cheerful and well-timed.

Cantina Feliz is one of my favorite go-to spots for Mexican food. This restaurant is ALWAYS worth the drive for me. From drinks to items on their menu, everything is authentic, tasty, hot and delicious. The margaritas are topnotch and guac is on point!

My family had a delicious meal here on Saturday night!!! The guac & chips are so delicious..the chips are warm..yum! The Mushroom huarache is honestly one of the best things on the menu. We get it everytime we come. The complexity of the flavors in each bite just make it absolutely exquisite. For entrees we love the El Carbon tacos w chicken. The grilled chicken is like none other. It always soft and has the most delicious flavor as it practically melts in your mouth. I always add grilled chicken to the chop salad for my entree. My husband did the pork tacos he said they were outstanding.
I have never eaten anything here that I didn't like. It really is one of the best restaurants in the suburbs!!

I dined here with my boyfriend on a Saturday night and it was pretty good. We had the crab guacamole to start -- delicious. It was my favorite out of everything we ordered. I ordered the 3 chili margarita which was good but with a tad too much sugar. Next time I go I'll probably just order a classic marg. My boyfriend had the mixed enchiladas and said they were all very tasty, especially the seafood. I had blackened salmon tacos which were decent but I'd only recommend them to someone who enjoys very robust flavor and lots of seasoning. Our server was nice, wait time wasn't bad at all, especially for a bust Saturday night. It is super loud so don't come here if you are trying to have a quiet conversation. Overall it was a great night out.

We were really excited to go out with friends and order the suckling pig. We had been curious about getting it and had heard good things. It was an experience to have it carved table side, but it was just ok. I've had other things that were great but the suckling pig was underwhelming for the price. The best part of the meal were the plantains. We will come back, by save yourself the disappointment of the suckling pig.

We've been meaning to eat here for quite some time and finally made it. Outstanding. It's quite easily the best Mexican restaurant the area. The guacamole with figs, candied pecans and blue cheese was fresh and delicious. The ceviche verde was amazing in both taste and presentation. The pulpo was butter soft and flavorful. The halibut special was perfectly cooked and almost too beautiful to eat. This is a must try for any liver of upscale Mexican cuisine. We'll be back soon. A special thanks to our server, Shane. He's great!
