This restaurant is now closed. A wings place has moved in to their old location. The Taqueria el Cantero ownership opened a new restaurant called "The Cowboy Café" out west of town. I am sad to say that it is now also closed. Hopefully, this...More

The service and food here have always been excellent for me. The complementary chips and salsa are delicious. The tacos can be ordered in a more American style with lettuce and cheese or more authentic Mexican with a chopped onions and tomatoes and cilantro. They...More

I have eaten Mexican food from San Francisco to San Diego and from Browsville to Key West. (Honestly, I don't particularly care for the Mexican food in Mexico?!?) I have eaten at this restaurant at least 50 times. It is the best anywhere. The owner/chef...More

I ate here while on business in August 2011 based on the high ratings on Trip Advisor. I was disappointed. Perhaps compared to other Mexican restaurants in Alabama, this is good, but compared to other Mexican restaurants around the US, you will be disappointed. The...More

The details are what makes the difference. The ground beef is spiced to perfection. The salsas are well-blended and flavorful. Fresh cilantro even comes with the condiments (be sure to request!) Do yourself a favor and come for the most authentic Mexican food around.

Well, it's "cántaro," but who's spell checking... This is a real downhome family owned restaurant. Don't let the lack of decorating fool you--this is a SERIOUS restaurant. Good tacos with fresh cilantro--to die for. I only fault them on their lack of beverages.

Mexican specialties in this family run place; with friendly and fast service - special drinks exceed any other place in town. Decor is plain and modest, parking is always available. Crowded at lunch time, many loyal worker/clients
