Southwest
A visit to this exciting Tex Mex atmosphere isn’t dangerous, but it’s a whole lot spicier than your everyday life. It’s not too hot, mind ya, it’s just full of flavor! Little Angie’s Cantina is the kind of place where the food is so fresh it’s sizzling at your table. Original artifacts from the Southwest create a real wild West setting right here in the Midwest. At Little Angie’s it’s okay to laugh out loud and fill up on our fresh homemade salsa and corn tortilla chips. Signature items include: sizzling hot fajitas on cast iron skillets; fresh made burritos, enchiladas, and chimichangas all served with a varieties of rice and sauces, distinctly Little Angie’s recipes; a wall of tequila and hundreds of combinations of house-specialty margaritas and mojitos. Little Angie’s is the place to enjoy a little more than you ought to. Break the rules, so to speak. Seasonal deck dining overlooking beautiful Lake Superior in Canal Park, Minnesota.

Sunday lunch on the patio. Very busy streets and sidewalks. Mojitos generously poured, Fresh salsa and guacamole, just excellent (and I'm not usually a guac-fan)! Chicken tortilla soup with just enough zing, and an excellent taco salad. Attentive service (thanks, Margo!). Trouble with yellowjackets at some tables, which was a little disruptive. But they get more active this time of year.

Food quality was very good, the Margarita was pretty syrupy sweet, not as I prefer them to be. Overall, a very pleasant experience.

I had a garlic steak enchilada and my husband had a BBQ chicken burrito. Both were so good. We can't wait until our next trip up to Duluth to have them again! The service was amazing as well!

Ate inside and felt totally safe. Margarita not real strong and rice and beans with chimichanga were luke warm. Steak fajita was great.

Wait staff was unenthused at best. I know times suck, but don’t be so cold about being there, you might as well not be there at all. The food was sub par from what I remember it. We likely won’t be coming back next time we stay on the canal.

The alcohol beverages tasted like nothing was in there. Just sweet smoothie essentially.

Avocado chicken salad could use A little more to it. Maybe Some tortilla strips, more chicken than the four pieces

We loved the area and location and were happy to get a table outside as it was a beautiful day. Unfortunately, the food and service did not match the great location and weather. The quality of the food just was not good, I would suggest some quality control in the kitchen. Our server did not seem happy to see us arrive. A poor decision on our part to dine here, beware my friends.

This place has the best location in town, which must be why it has stayed in business because the food was pretty bad.
The service was good and we were seated outside. It is noisy closer in because they pipe in music, but we sat far out.
We shared shrimp fajitas and the shrimp part was good. We got beans on the side and that was a mistake. Somehow the beans were undercooked AND burned. Since they were clueless about cooking beans they should have just gone for canned.
Strangely, unlike many restaurants these days, no matter what the cousine, I doubt there was a single Mexican in this Mexican restaurant’s kitchen.
I would encourage you to stick to drinks and nachos at this place

Service was great - Margaritas were great - Loved the patio . My food however was pretty mediocre .. The cheese enchiladas were kind of dry - not much sauce and the Mexican rice that it came with was mushy and had clearly been sitting all day . The other two people with me did like their food . Would come again - just would not get the enchiladas

Love the margaritas here. Fajitas are not good. Nachos are tasty. No umbrellas outdoors so the sun beats down on you. All in all a decent place to dine.

My mojito and the chips and pico de gallo were fantastic! Unfortunately, my entree was not. I ordered veggie fajitas and the veggie mix did not have many onion or pepper strips but rather several very large pieces of carrot, zucchini, and pineapple which were too big to mix into a tortilla. My special order for the the entree with rice no beans, no cheese or sour cream, but with guacamole arrived all correct, which was appreciated. The guacamole was very bland, like mayo. It must have been diluted with some kind of cream. Overall I would go back, but for drinks and appetizers only. It wouldn't hurt to have a few more vegan options on the menu. Please consider.

Restaurant is in a great location and has a cool atmosphere but food was not worth the money. Very disorganized between outside seating and inside seating.

Everything was great except our meals. My beef enchiladas were dryer than a bone! It was basically dry beef in a tortilla with sprinkled cheese on top. My husbands burrito dinner was like a kids meal. Chips & queso were good. Drinks were good. Service was good. I was expecting more from the looks of the building. The quality of food for the price won’t be bringing me back or recommending to others.

Always a great place for Tex-mex food. Would recommend the seafood enchiladas and definitely the Longhorn grilled burrito.
Also the blood orange margaritas are delicious!

We were traveling, and enjoy stopping here for a meal. The only complaint is that when outside, so many people walking by walked so near our table space and wore no masks. That was very uncomfortable and quite rude.

Enchiladas were taste, but needed more sauce, tortillas were dry. Chicken was very good. I asked for pico de gallo and added that, it was very good! Server was very pleasant. The food was a little slow to come out, especially considering it’s all basically precooked and ready to assemble. Eating outside in summer at Canal Park cannot be beat! Would go back and try something different. Prices were a little higher than I would have expected, but that may be the location.
