Decent size portions for the price. The shrimp tacos were fantastic. The other stuff was good. The presentation is nice. Service was quick and friendly. Ate outside which was delightful. Inside is always very noisy.

Really nice place. I love the colorful look of the dining room. Lunch specials are very generous in pricing and portion size, and include chips and salsa. I had the steak fajita wrap. Its a cross between a classic steak fajita and a cheesesteak. Gooey and delicious. The fries were really good too. Crispy and well seasoned, and the cheese sprinkled on top was a nice touch. If I lived/worked closer I would probably be a regular!

Really like the margaritas here, theyre never too sweet and I like that you actually know theres tequila in it. The food has never been overly disappointing, but I wouldnt say its got a wow factor either. I will say their queso is very good and I normally order tacos and theyre decent. One big drawback of Cantina 1511 is their service. Ive sat at the bar, in the bar area, and in the restaurant side and have yet to have a good experience. Only reason Ive gone back is purely due to convenience (closest decent Mex restaurant by my job). Also if theyre busy, turn around and go elsewhere. They cannot handle it even when its steady and not overly busy. The service whether busy or not really needs an adjustment. From getting drinks wrong, to ignoring their guests (this happened while sitting at the bar!!), to being rude to guests when they have questions about drinks/the menu. Ive worked in the food industry and never leave less than a 20% tip, but really contemplate going lower than my threshold at this establishment. If you want to visit, I suggest sitting restaurant side, out of the three spots that was where we received the best quality of service even if it was mediocre.

The food was good,,so was the service. It was good to have a classic and incredible margarita. The prices were reasonable. Will visit again. Four star given because of fewer vegetarian choices.
