I fly through Denver quite often and I always make time for this favorite. Their food is always hot and fresh and the service friendly. Love it!

We came here for brunch before our flight. The kids loved the window seats overlooking the runway. When we first went up to the hostess stand it took a while for one of the ladies to greet us and seat us. There were 4 of them talking over to the side and didn't seem to have any desire for customers.... More

Worst Mexican meal I have ever had. Not fresh at all and the "hot sauces" are marinara. Do not recommend

Three half filled meat tacos, hurriedly splashed together with no attention to appearance. Toppings extra. There was less food and less taste than on a taco Bell $1 menu. Not at all filling. After shelling out $22 for three empty tacos each, we went down the hall to Pizza Hut Express and bought another meal to finish lunch.

The restaurant bills itself as a Mexican restaurant but it is a carbohydrate factory. Ordered the carne assada burrito and it arrived at our table cold with no beef, some rice and a lot of black beans smothered in Velveeta cheese. No offense to Velveeta. Drink prices were what I would expect to see in an airport. Want the calories... More

I was surprised by how tasty the chicken burrito bowl I had was. I was expecting it to be like a Chipotle or Q Doba, but I liked it even more. I will go back on my next trip!

I had the green chile with pork soup. It had quite a bit of cheese, not enough pork but very tasty with quite a little spicy kick. Plenty of soup to eat with an order of chips and salsa. Pricey, but then, it's at the airport. I would go back.

Me and the wife were in our way back to cincinnati from vacation. I had the breakfast burrito and the wife had the nachos and cheese. I was sick the entire flight. My wife was up most of the night with stomach pains. Im not saying that the cantina caused it, but beware! We have found that eating at "established"... More
