This was a "mini reunion" with a former co-worker who recently moved back to this area. Fortunately, our servers Chelly and Daniel, gave us plenty of time and space to not only visit, but to enjoy a cocktail and thoroughly peruse the menu. They answered our multiple questions (with a smile), and then , again, left us to "catch up".... More

Busy Happy Hour until 7:00, which is a good time to order the overpriced, but very good, margaritas at a discount. Upscale atmosphere and very good service. Chili con queso was bland, as were the Spanish rice and the black beans. I ordered Cameron Poblano Asada, which was incredible and beautifully seasoned. My husband had the Carnitas tacos, the Carnitas... More

The restaurant was obviously a chain. It operates like a machine with no caring for customers. Food was ok, nothing great. The girls that greeted you at door had no personality. Took you to table and were talking as they were going back up front. Saw this with every customer they brought to table. Speed was more important that a... More

Best thing about it is the guacamole made at the table. Not a fan of their salsa. They make more Mexican dishes than burritos and taco foods. Table cloths on the tables. I prefer other Mexican restaurants more.

We enjoy every item we have tried on the menu... we know that we won't be disappointed when we walk through their door! I love the table-side prepared guacamole with all the ingredient choices, the carnitas with the chipotle sauce and grilled vegetables, and, of course, the margaritas. My husband enjoys the burritos, fajitas and the apple pie with cinnamon... More

Mod Mex! Very fresh,especially the table side guacamole! Chips served warm & very light in texture. Nice variety of adult beverages. Great happy hour menu & if this doesn't suit you the dinner menu certainly will! Bar & dining room decorated in warm colors,subtle decor.

Went for lunch today, which happens to be Veterans Day and hubby got a free lunch due to service to our country. This was very sincerely appreciated and I commend them for their thoughtfulness and gratitude. We are regular patrons year round and today was no exception to having a delicious and filling lunch. Fajitas it was for us today... More

Service was excellent. Food was excellent and my favorite thing about Cantina Laredo are the great Margaritas. The Margaritas are comparable to the kind of Margaritas you get in Texas which are my favorite. In my opinion, the best Mexican food and Margaritas in Southwest Florida.

Thank Bill S
