Their margarita was delicious, the hot salsa was hot and really good and everything else was just OK. We started with an appetizer of guacamole and yes it was good, but the small blob of it wasn't worth 8$. I ordered the 1/2 nacho for my dinner and portion wise it was perfect, but it was missing a lot of... More

Salsa could be better, staff was nice, but won't return. Kitchen was backed up, with very little orders to fill. Waitress offered more salsa, after waiting 45mins for entrees. Patio was open. Bartender made a Mango margarita was strong, good offerings on a Saturday night of skinny margaritas/vodka mixers. Had nachos and fajitas and el pastor tacos.

There aren't really any decent Mexican restaurants around, but Front Street Cantina is Lemont's best choice! Good menu and quality food. Service is good and in the summer, you can even eat on the patio.

Wow!!! My husband and I came here for dinner for the first time last night. I was so excited- the food and drinks were fantastic. We ordered a round of their house margarita on the rocks. It was delicious- not overly sweetened with sweet & sour, fresh lime taste and perfect size. I had to order another one before we... More

Was taken here by my boss for lunch and I loved it. Came back with my boyfriend 2 weeks later for a Saturday night dinner. So much choice on the menu, delicious cocktails and the staff are lovely. Cant wait to go back again very soon.

Ordered a combo platter again for take out. The taco seemed low on fillings & the tamale was all masa. The last time I ordered it the tamale had a good amount if filling.

If you are looking for econfina that has excellent food paired with excellent varieties of spirits and Liquors and beer, look no further! The staff is friendly and nice and the ambience is what you would expect from your neighborhood Cantina! Definitely worth the visit.

I don't know where to start. The service was not good, but you could tell he was very new to the job. He definitely needs more training! Appetizer was shredded pork nachos and they were delicious! As far as the entree I had a combination plate with a shrimp taco, chicken flauta, and chile relano. The shrimp taco was disappointing... More

One of our go-to faves. Conveniently located within walking distance of the Lemont Metra station, we visit every week on the day I find myself going to downtown meetings. Get there during Happy Hour for great food and drink specials. Margaritas taste authentic, with fresh lime juice, and the food is top-notch. Friendly, efficient service and a fun atmosphere in...
