I'm usually not a big fan of Mexican food, but Cantina 76 has changed my mind! The food is fresh and full of flavor, not like the lard-laden refried beans and canned chicken of so many other Mexican restaurants. The shrimp taco was excellent and...More

I usually order the taco combo with shrimp. Although selecting shrimp is an additional charge, the tacos are wonderful and a must if you enjoy seafood. The combos come with enough chips to feed two. They also have an rewards card that among other things...More

met a client for lunch and we ordered a few tacos and apps. The guac was just okay and I usually judge Mexican by its guac. The tacos were good but not fantastic either. Glad the meal was pretty cheap.

Great tacos and enchiladas! Sometimes the wait staff is slow/unattentive but it is generally worth it for the food. The strawberry basil margaritas are fabulous and the prices can't be beat. One of my favorite restaurants in town.
