Thanks for your review! We have a variety of Margaritas. The Traditional is my favorite! Happy you enjoyed the bar!

Margaritas are cold. Food is hot. Suggest you make a reservation. We sat at the bar and enjoyed quick, tasty enchiladas. No fuss. No leftovers. This is not a fashion statement restaurant....this is fun, loud, quick and tasty while still wearing your ski boots.

The chips and salsa were good, a little sweetness to the salsa. I had the combo platter with a chicken mole enchilada, which was delicious and a pork street taco. I enjoyed both and the mole was really good. The sangria was good too.

Cantina is a lively Mexican restaurant serving traditional and TexMex food in the Aspen area. Our menu offers everything from enchiladas, carnitas and carne asada to ceviche and wings. All of our food is fresh and prepared in-house daily, and we have daily specials that are always a favorite. We also have a fun happy hour atmosphere, with great drink and food specials. One of the most unique things about Cantina is that we serve our own infused tequila, and have the widest selection of tequila in the area. With the largest seating capacity of any restaurant in Aspen and with four distinct rooms, Cantina is a great place to host your event. We host everything from weddings, rehearsal dinners, corporate events, college and employee events, to Superbowl and New Year’s Eve parties. We can accommodate groups up to 334 people, and have a custom-made dance floor with audio/video facilities for you to enjoy. For the sports lovers, we have plenty of HD televisions and a giant HD screen, so we’re always showing the game.
