We had a 630pm reservation for two and we seated by the bar. (My least favorite place to sit for a nice dinner)

Another table was seated immediately after us and they were greeted and served drinks BEFORE we were even spoke to by anyone.. This practice burns me up and I think its the job of the staff to serve patrons in order of arrival.

After FINALLY being greeted by a waitress for our drink order, we waited and waited for delivery and still had no chips and salsa.

Once our “assigned” waitress arrived with drink delivery, she had ZERO personality, made no eye contact and when we ordered the table side guac, she seemed to be bothered.

We waited for over 20 minutes for the guac to appear and waitress never spoke while creating Guac. Very sad and poor attitude.

I ordered a second margarita and she totally forgot to deliver it ti me until after we requested the check. When she brought it to the table, she laughed and said do you still want it? Total lack of concern and not what we expected as we are somewhat “regulars” at Cantina Laredo.

When one spends nearly $100 for a dinner outing, this type of sub-par service leaves a lot to be desired!

Overall, food was just ok. Temperature of food was not HOT and with the lack luster service, we are left wondering what happened to our favorite place.

Was in the mood for spicy food.
Was anything but! The sign said GOURMET mexican - outright lie, it was all very bland, greasy and drowning in cheese. The guacamole was ok - not spicy, though and the tortilla chips very good. Service was fine.
Wouldn’t go again, though - better mex food at Cheesecake.

Cantina Laredo is on our short list for dining, the team never lets us down. The new thin tortilla chips recently added make the homemade guacamole taste even better than before. We always have the guacamole with our cocktails - "oh by the way" they have a great bar-tending staff.

Service: had to ask for refills on Water. no refill on chips or salsa offered. Once we received our order, we then had to track down wait staff for silverware. Music was Too Loud.
Food: I really liked the food, very good quality, flavor, portions.

The veggie chimichanga is not good. Way too much cheese. The veggie fajita was the kitchen sink. Just don’t go here if you’re vegetarian.

Disgusting! This place has gone downhill steadily over the past year or so. We loved it so much before that we keep going back hoping we just caught them at a bad time but this was the forth time we had horrible food, horrible service and an overall bad time. The chips were dark brown and tasted like they had refried them a couple of days in a row. I ordered the tableside guacamole and has to send it back due to the avacados being dark black condition. The quality of the food has completely deteriorated. Moes is actually better now than this Cantina Laredo. Thats like saying McDonalds is better than Five Guys...🙄but seriously don't waste your time if it is food you are going here for. Perhaps the bar provides a little better experience that I can’t speak to.

The prices are increasing and the flavor decreases... the guacamole used to be out of this world and the chips to die for. Anymore it’s mediocre food at best. Lunch cost 21++ that’s with sharing the guacamole and a soft drink. So before tip $42 for lunch!! This is the second mediocre visit in the last few months. I’ll wait a bit and try one final time.

Happy Hour is a freakin joke. You can only get it if you have room In your bar area. Then! You only offer margarita or house wine? Are you serious ?
Our reservation was for 4:45. We got there on time. I called ahead to see if I could change it to 5:30– Was told no we couldn’t, however the place was pretty empty until about 7.
Do you have a 14 year old running this place or what ?

Server Jeff seemed new and inexperienced. Very flustered and almost mixed up our checks, then almost gave us someone else’s card and came back a second time to ask if we wanted to split the checks even though I had already given him my card.

Normally, I love Cantina Laredo. On this night, the food and drinks weren't worth the money. Rice was greasy and the drinks were loaded with ice but little alcohol.
