Cantina Restaurant Review

: Bring the whole family to this brightly painted adobe restaurant, where small budgets and big appetites can both be satisfied. Upstairs, private booths provide ample space to enjoy huge portions of traditional Mexican fare including vegetable or chicken fajitas, burritos, tacos and enchiladas, served with the expected accompaniments of rice and beans. You can wash it all down with a margarita. Most patrons skip dessert given the restaurant's generous portions; those who can't resist favor the fried ice cream. Beer specials and free chips and bean dip entice patrons to the Cantina's quirky basement bar.
