It's in the heart of midtown Omaha - with elaborate indoor & patio seating. The ambiance is chic - characteristic to any upscale downtown/midtown setting. We tried some enchiladas & quesadilla along a few drinks which were at best average. The portions were less than those at other Mexican joints but were thankfully less cheesy. The price on the drinks... More

Our server, John, was top notch. Snapper special with asparagus and rice was excellent. Strangely the tacos were blah! Margaritas were okay. Brownie dessert required a sturdy steak knife to cut through plus flavorless. All in all disappointing.

Had a great family brunch here on a Sunday morning. Great selections and a complimentary mimosa or Bloody Maria with each brunch entree. Lovely atmosphere. Food was excellent. More than most of us wanted for brunch, but moderately priced and attentive wait staff. We'll go back!

I'm not a huge fan of Mexican cuisine, but this place looked nice and was convenient for lunch. Lots of options that weren't TOO spicy. Salsa and chips were much better than the usual store bought stuff. I had steak fajitas, which were also quite good. Full bar and attentive staff. Would visit again.

Everything they do here at Cantina Laredo is just wonderful tasting. I made a comment to the waitress and she informed the chef, who came out and personally thanked me for the positive feedback. He informed me that the kitchen makes everything in house (if possible) and comes in every morning at 6am to start working on everything from roasting... More

Second or third try at this place. Way too spicy for normal folk. Everything was over spiced including the vegetables. Could not wait to get home and gargle with tums. Everything looked great and service wonderful but if you can't take spice go elsewhere.
