Our business reserved a large table space. The staff at Catina Laredo were incredibly accommodating and professional. The service was quick and professional. The space was great for our reception, with great atmosphere and ambiance. The food was delicious. I would be happy to host an event here again.

Cantina has really gone downhill over the years. The tableside guac is still good, but the ceviche is fishy (other Tex Mex places in town do a better job - El Porton) and the cheese dip is gloppy. Probably won't try happy hour here again. No drink specials.

The service was great. Our waitress was prompt and informative, without being pushy. Food was excellent. Good quantities for the price. It wasn't a quiet restaurant but there were some bigger groups having a good time. Note, the noise did not impede conversation. Definitely will go back.

There were 9 of us. I do believe the young man server may have been inexperienced because the service was so poor.
Took forever to receive first cocktails. Next round we decided to order a double because it was taking so long. It happened again. Server said bartender didn’t know to make doubles so he had to remake.

Not sure how much tequila is in the house margarita but we couldn’t tell if there was any.

The tableside guacamole ( which we did not specify that option). Was a bowl maybe half full! We ordered a second one. Huge rip off. At least fill the bowl?!

The Mexican plate entrees—-the beans were not hot just barely warm. The enchiladas espinaca were tasteless. Child’s Mac n cheese all in a big clump. Not soft and creamy.

So disappointed. Won’t return.
The Dallas restaurant by our house is 10 times better in every way than this location.

Although Cantina Laredo is a chain, the food is above average, almost Tex-Mex, but not quite. Mixed drinks are small and over-priced - stick with beer. Service can be hit or miss depending on how busy they are. The last time I was there they were preparing for a large crowd of people who prepaid for a tequila-tasting and dinner, so I am glad we got in and out before the crowd came. It's an easy choice when you want something "Mexican" on the whim, but not if you want authentic Mexican food. It just is what it is.

I love this place. The food is always good and the service is usually good too. It was very busy for National Margarita Day but you could tell the staff was prepared for the full restaurant. I’m happy that I decided to make reservation via open table. We were able to be seated quickly. Had a great time!

Reservations worked perfectly. We were seated 2 minutes before our reservation time. Food was great. Noise level was extremly high in there and we couldn't hear each other at our table of 4 unless we all leaned in toward each other. Accoustics are not good in restaurant for absorbing sound.

Was not packed, and seating was great. Josh delivered awesome service. I was also impressed that the Manager was "table touching" inquiring if everything was good. It is great to see good service standards. Overall an enjoyable experience. Job well done.

Retirement celebration. Service was a little slow getting started (getting server’s attention for drinks, chips, etc.) but improved substantially after we ordered food. Server was kind. Food was good. Not a fan of the salsa at all but that’s a personal choice. The cheese dip and guacamole are very good. Love the crispy tacos. So large and don’t fall apart on first bite. Fajitas were not sizzling. The meat was apparently grilled, not caramelized with veggies and room temp laying on top of caramelized onions like cooked separately and then assembled. We enjoyed ourselves. Was easy to make reservations with open table.

I think we had a table that was unassigned to the wait staff - 20 min for drink order then appetizer came 2 min before main course, which was not very warm. Usually it’s better than that

If you like dining in a really noisy place this is for you. The food is well prepared but presented sparsely.
Contemporary mexican dishes with frequent menu changes make it an adventure.

The dinner was very good.
My only issue was that I did not think to request a tablet away from the bar area. With four guests, the tablet did not accommodate all the dinner plates very well and conversations were difficult to hear. There is a dining room area that is much more suited for what I wanted. I will correct that in the future. Bottom line, I will go back.

We recently ate at your Branson, Missouri location, on a weekend vacay. It was wonderful!!! We were so excited to learn of the Little Rock location ....close to home. However, we were very disappointed with the difference in the quality and taste of the food. Not expecting to revisit the Little Rock location.

Wow, we were really impressed with the food here. Great tamale and fish tacos. Typically I don't like the rice side dish that comes with a meal in a Mexican restaurant, but the rice here is Fantastic!

Also a good margarita. Made with fresh squeezed lime juice so it's not too sweet!

We will dine here again!

Friendly service and even got in on Happy Hour to enjoy 2$ tacos and food margaritas! The hot sizzling apple pie with cinnamon ice cream for dessert is a must! Guacamole mixed to your liking right at our table and was some of the best we’ve had in a long time! We will be back!

We went to Cantina because they had emailed us with a special Memorial Day weekend fajitas value.

We must have waited 15 minutes for our waiter to arrive at our table. When we told him that we wanted the fajita special (on Friday) he stated that the deal was on Wednesday. I tol him that it was all weekend and he did check with management and was told that I was right. It would seem that the management is not communicating with the staff.

The food was very good. This was the first time that I had tried the fajitas here, but I will probably go back for this dish at regular price.
