The chicken and onion quesadilla was outstanding as was the ceviche. I recommend them. We also ordered the tortilla soup. It was filled with tortillas, chicken, avocado and cilantro and was good overall but it was a bit salty. The ambience and service were good.

Another view so the London Bridge, this time from the patio. I went on Wednesday after 3 pm because I was told of the tacos for $1.00 each so I ordered three with a Corona Beer but had an appointment at 4:15 pm so had to leave soon. Looked at the menu which made me want to return and we... More

Pleasant restaurant with average at best Tex-Mex food. Fajitas are made with teriyaki seasoning, very odd. Everything we had was bland, with little seasoning.

I/we always eat at the Cantina each trip as it is very nicely located and we enjoy the food. Chips and salsa are always nice is a cool beverage while waiting the short time for the food to arrive. Nice views of the London Bridge and channel while eating are always nice. Food is well prepared and served hot, plenty... More

My husband and I stopped at the Javelina Cantina for lunch today and enjoyed our visit. The menu was extensive and interesting, the food was delicious and reasonably priced, and the view of the London Bridge was great.

We visited the Javelina Cantina on a Friday night. The Parade of Lights was starting in the background. This is a very small restaurant with a large patio area. Unfortunately with the high cold winds, we froze while we ate outside. However, the food was very good and reasonably priced with large portions. I would recommend this restaurant looking for...

They bill themselves as a Mexican restaurant and I guess they are as they have many delicious treats, but coming from the southwest a Mexican restaurant with out green chili is kind of strange to me. I expect things to be smotherd in green chili. There salads are great and the big nacho plate is enough for 3 or 4... More

Good service, nice view, good location. But don't go here for the food. It wasn't terrible, not necessary bad, it just was not good. It completely lacked flavor. Blah is the only word to describe it. No spice, no zip and completely void of flavor. Will not return.

This restaurant is just off of The London Bridge, and sits at the edge of the lake. Great place for some Mexican food, but they also have American food. Friendly staff and great waiters. There is a patio for outside dining, if you prefer. We did! Great place for drinks and dinner.
