Vail is well known as premium-priced in virtually every category - top-drawer if that's your thing. The good news is that if you find yourself in Vail - spending your 401K on a family ski trip, sleeping on a friends couch, or just passing through...More

Great value! No frills Mexican. Best Chili Relleno I’ve had in a long time. Yes, it’s located in a bus terminal. Don’t let that scare you away. The food tasted great and authentic. Friendly atmosphere and super nice staff. Don’t expect ambiance, but do expect...More

This place is soooo good! I'm originally from Arizona and I'm always looking for authentic Mexican food - this place has it. It has a Salsa bar too. Delicious tacos and enchiladas. Check it out! You will be glad you did.

Fantastic food at inexpensive prices and service was quick. Free refills on chips and plenty of salsa choices to go along with the chips. Great place for lunch or dinner.

If you are looking to save money, this is your best best. Right in the Vail Village Transportation Center, the location can't be beat. It has virtually no ambiance, but decent food at low prices. Mexican food such as tacos, enchiladas, burritos and fish tacos....More

It is not a restaurant more a cafe. The tables and chairs are basic. No waiter service, you order your food at the counter, collect a number and in short order your food arrives. My 4 star rating is based on la cantina being a...More

I don't recall any children's menu, it is a small restaurant. Give them a call, there is probably something to suit.
