“Without a doubt, the best Mexican food in town!”
Reviewed 11 August 2011

The details are what makes the difference. The ground beef is spiced to perfection. The salsas are well-blended and flavorful. Fresh cilantro even comes with the condiments (be sure to request!)

Do yourself a favor and come for the most authentic Mexican food around.

“By Far, the Best Mexican Food in Town!!!”
Reviewed 6 August 2011

My husband and kids love the place. We feel blessed to have the opportunity to eat at El Cantaro when we do not feel like cooking at home. We are always greeted with a smile and the service is great. Best of all, this is not an expensive restaurant so it easily fits into our budget. Everything seems so fresh and we have never had a bad meal there. Our family always leaves full and happy.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed 16 July 2011

I took my family to Taqueria el Cantaro for dinner last night and had a great meal. Everything was fresh and the service was speedy. We never had to ask for refills and the meal was delicious. Without a doubt, we will return as the entire family was pleased.

“Family Friendly Dining”
Reviewed 19 June 2011

There are so many good things about this restaurant. First, the food is great. The ingredients are fresh and the cooking style is wonderful. Better yet, the service levels are the best I have had in the city. Our family never had to ask for refills as are servers were on top of the task through our visit. Best of all are the owners of the restaurant. They are always friendly and helpful which is refreshing due to the poor service levels in this city. I am willing to go back with family and friends due to so many good dining experiences. Any place that can stretch my food entertainment dollar is a big plus in this tough economic time. Yay, Taqueria el Cantaro!!!

“Well, it's "cántaro," but who's spell checking... This is a real downhome family owned restaurant...”
Reviewed 26 January 2009

Well, it's "cántaro," but who's spell checking... This is a real downhome family owned restaurant. Don't let the lack of decorating fool you--this is a SERIOUS restaurant. Good tacos with fresh cilantro--to die for. I only fault them on their lack of beverages.
