Me and my family eat here often. Usually 2-4 times a month. The staff is very friendly, and the food is always great. Very highly recommended.

We come here several times a year. The food is always good (quesadillas) and coupled with a margarita makes the end of the work day a bit less stressful. The last time we visited on a Friday and a small band started to play on the smoking side on the porch. It was a cool twist. The staff is always... More

Gathered for a pre-party. Margaritas were excellent, very smooth. I had enchiladas, wife had the chicken qesedillas and raved about them. The enchiladas were good but I thought the meal lacked enough seasoning. Same goes for the salsa just wasn't enough kick to it for my taste. Servicewas pretty good considering the large crowd.

Very good service. Excellent food and atmosphere. Didn't get the chance to sit outside and listen to the live music.

This place has great fajitas. They offer several variations on the basic meal. One features lots of vegtables mixed in. Another adds lots of bacon and grilled shrimp. They also have very good home made guacamole.

My go to at most Mexican restaurants is Taco el Carbon. The steak tacos were delicious. The meat was so tender and plentiful. The lunch portion is two tacos, and it was almost more then I could eat.

We picked this place for Father's Day. The place was packed.The place seems quite big but, it has tight seating. We all seemed packed together. We called a day before hand to make sure we had a table ready for 10 people. When we got there we still had to wait since someone gave our tables away. Once we were... More

Went with family members to La Cantina Mexican Grill last night after a long day of sitting around a hospital waiting room. I ordered an avocado stuffed with steak and cheese, then fried and covered with queso. And on top of that, they served it with an enchilada! It was a lot of food, but it was really delicious. Another... More
