Had dinner here on a Monday night. Place was hopping with lots of families. Service was good, but I had to refill my own water glass. Had excellent fish tacos. My friend had the shrimp tacos. We both were very happy with our choice. Chips were crisp and salty, the guacamole was just OK in my book. Salsa was good.... More

The service was very great and the atmosphere was great. The food was ok. Mexican food is my favorite and coming from California I'm a tough critic of authentic Mexican food. The food was fresh but lacked flavor. I will try it again next time I'm town.

It's a pity, too. The food is pretty good, and the margs are, too, but... everything about this place just screams, "We don't care what you want, this is how we do things here!!" They then seem to just go down the list of things they WON'T do for you... NO reservations accepted. NO split plates. NO substitutions on menu... More

It is the sign of a good Mexican restaurant to have authentic options as well healthy modern selections. This one certainly offers these options. The steak fajitas were served with black beans and rice and the avocado slices were a nice inclusion to the generous portion of meat. There are both fried fish and grilled fish soft taco options served... More

We had a delicious lunch at Amigos Cantina. The empanadas were great and the margaritas were heavenly. We will come back and bring a designated driver with us!

Quality food prepared in traditional Mexican style. This is not your run of the mill Mexican! Great Margaritas. Unusual dishes that are all well prepared. Can get crowded on weekend nights.

This has become our favorite place for southwestern/Mexican cuisine. The food is very good, prices $$-$$$. The kitchen closes before the bar so you can stay for drinks after dinner. Seating is on hard back chairs or benches, not great but the food more than makes up for it.

We went here on a very hot day intending to have a very cold Margarita on Margarita Monday's. I have to say the Margarita, we were both very disappointed with. Too much ice and not much Margarita for $6. In addition, not very flavorful. Never ordering it again there. However, our food was good. We had a chicken burrito each.... More

The staff is nice, the iced tea is good. Salsa is very mild, but the chips are good. We had the pork and found it to be very dry and tasteless. The cheese sauce tasted like reconstituted cheese. Neither of us liked what we ordered and we won't be back.

We eat at Amigos Cantina on a semi-regular basis when visiting our daughter in St. Louis. We have always enjoyed the meals here, but we were disappointed with our latest visit. Our bill for 4 adults and two children came to $131. Drinks are very expensive--no pitchers. My wife and I both ordered the cheese enchiladas, and they were cold... More
