Wanted go eat Mexican food for cinco de mayo so decided to try this place. Kinda cold to sit outside so had to go inside. The music was really loud. Shared a table with some nice people who offered to share since there were no open tables. Took awhile to get waited on but they were busy because of holiday?... More

Portions are good size. Wasn't impressed with the chicken, it felt more like I was eating tuna. The kids love the chicken nuggets more than adults love the Mexican food. For me it was nothing to brag about

At first glance this Cantina looked like a Latino dive, but since we had a Groupon ($25) off $50 minimum. The bar stools were all full, however there are tables for 6 in the back. We ordered 2 breakfast burritos, chicken fried steak, breakfast sandwich, chorizo, and I had two pancakes ($5) and 2 eggs well or over easy. ($4).... More

Have walked past for years and decided to try. Menu has variety. Had sandwich large enough to split for light eater. Same with my wife. Both tasty and nice beer variety.

After riding the coaster up and down the coast all day we got off at the Carlsbad station and we're looking for a late lunch. This place is right across the street from the station. The burgers were great and everyone else enjoyed what they ordered I love to find these local places compared to eating at the chain restaurants... More

Small bar but they have really good food and a fun atmosphere. Great place to start off your Carlsbad crawl. :). The bartenders are great and really friendly.

If you want one the best Local Places in town... Mas Fina Cantina (Or just Cantina) is the place to be. A little bit small on the inside, Cantina makes up for the lack indoor seating and size with a moderately sized porch area and a brand new street-side seating area, effectively doubling its capacity for people. And people is... More

3 1/3 stars ... April 2016. We went here because the New Village Theatre is across the way and we wanted to eat nearby. Inside too noisy for us, however patio was fine. $10.00 pretty good hamburger with French fries was big enough to split and they didn't charge extra. $6.00 beer. Sweet waitress. Daily specials about 1/2 price most... More

After walking all around Carlsbad Village we were on the way back to the car when we happened on this spot. Definitely a lot of locals loving this hangout and we found it perfect for the mood we were in. Diverse bar menu, fried and healthy but the drinks were great and the personal service by "Toby?" Made us feel... More
