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.
I'm not really into Mexican food but I'll say I was hooked on the course that I had tonight on a 1st visit. The salmon is bigger, better and way cheaper than the high priced establishment next door. I told waitress I do keto, so she had them sub my potatoes for a bed of grilled,seasoned veggies. The chicken soup was the best I've had at any restaurant, and I travel I good deal. Good service also.. Will definitely be going back.
Food was good as always. Service was fast once we got seated, but we were told 35 minutes wait time and it ended up being 45. I'd have gone somewhere else, but I was going to see a movie afterwards just across the parking lot. If you plan to go at a busy time, you should definitely get a reservation.
So sad - they are closed. Showed up craving guac and queso. Looks like the are moving the location.
