No Flavor. Disappointing because many south philly recommended this restaurant. We had beef and pork burritos. Both were small portions compared to any other Mexican restaurant, and had no flavor. Place charges you $3 for any extra fixing; including cheese. Paying for the location and...More

Although the food was good, the service was awful. The waitress was clueless and very unfriendly. The hostess had no bra on and the clothes she had on were so faded that you could see through her top. Overpriced meal for 5 people and only...More

Cantina is always a solid spot, I tend to go at least once a month over the past 8 years of living in South Philly. You can count on good margaritas-especially the passion fruit and solid food. It’s a casual spot for happy hour drinks...More

Margaritas and chips THIS time but I can't wait to enjoy dinner at this great restaurant. The bartender makes a fantastic classic margarita and the salsa has the chipotle smoky flavor to it. They also served salsa verde which was terrific.

This was my favorite of a handful of restaurants we visited during a trip to Phili. My husband, baby and I sat out on a warm night outside under a canopy decorated with outdoor string lighting; the crowd was under 50 mostly adults and ladies...More

Really enjoyed sitting outside, very good appetizers and drinks. Very good service. My Uncle and I really didn't like our meals, very dry and tasteless. The rest of the family enjoyed their meals. My wife loved her dish.

We stopped by this restaurant after Happy Hour. Told us about 45 minute wait for outside seating. We waited at the bar and were seated before finishing our drinks. Ordered Guacamole, pork tacos and nachos topped with chorizo. Chips were perfect, not greasy at all....More
