The energy of the Sagebrush Cantina on a weekend is infectious as people love to gather there for drinks and some semblance of food. Overall, I thought the food was average at best, but the drinks, service, and atmosphere is what keeps this place in business.

Thank Zakato70
Management response:

It's so great to hear the vibe and service were this impressive, but we're sorry the meal itself didn't blow you away. We're not sure what you tried that we could look into, but we'll keep this all in mind. We're confident we can really take it up a notch for you, so we hope we'll have the chance to... More

We ate outside (heat lamps nearby) and appreciated the quiet atmosphere. Inside has TVs and music and is louder for those who want more action. This restaurant has been around since my husband and his brother were young (and possibly well before that). The Mexican food was great with good sized portions. I had a Cajun Shrimp salad which was... More

We've been around since 1974 to be exact, Claire, and it's great to know that we're still providing our guests with excellent Mexican food to this day! Thanks so much for the kind words -- we're glad the Cajun shrimp salad made such an impression, and we hope we'll have the chance to serve you again soon. Best, The Sagebrush... More

The food is very good. Try to get there for lunch on a nice day when you can sit outside. You might see a lot of motorcycles parked around, but don't worry, according to what I've heard, nearly all the riders appear to be housebroken.

Thank Banerman

We're happy you always enjoy sitting on the patio! We hope to see you for lunch out there again soon. All the best, The Sagebrush Cantina More

Still a popular place with outside seating and live bands. Drinks are good and cravings for Mexican food would be satisfied. I would avoid the place on biker nights if you are a bit older and past that type of crowd.

The Cantina is huge, popular, often crowded. Good food. Good music on weekends with local acoustic musicians, and some travelling tribute bands of note like the Journey tribute, Dont Stop Believin. A famous but not cheap Sunday brunch makes that day crowded all day and into night. Parking is hellish. But you will enjoy your time here. When its not... More

Attended an event here and the set up worked well for a large group. The facilities are tired and the food was average at best. The live music made conversation difficult at times. Their valet parking was slow and had difficulty managing the incoming guests.

Thank Sandy C
Management response:

Sandy, average food is not what we're about there, and it's a shame if your entrees weren't quite your thing. We're also disappointed that the music volume wasn't what you had in mind, either. We hope your group still had a great time, and we wish you all the best. Thank you, The Sagebrush Cantina More

I ate here at the end of March with my wife and friends. We ate our dinner outside with the patio heaters around us. The service was awesome and the food was great! Prices are very reasonable as well. It was a quiet night there, but it looks like they have karaoke outside on certain nights with occasional live bands.... More

Valet parking is very slow not only that you will have to walk on dirt. Good luck getting a table and if you are able to get it just pray to get service we were there for about 25 minutes waiting for a server to come and nobody came so we left it didn't seem to be too busy but... More

Nadia, we apologize for the lackluster service. You should never have to wait that long, and that's by no means up to our standards. We know we're capable of better, and we hope you'll give us another try sometime in the future. All the best, The Sagebrush Cantina More

Omg where to begin. Such a Calabasas classic. The place has a weird band area but my advice is cross that area and get a table in the patio overlooking the road. I forget what it was called but they have a platter with 2 quesadillas, 2 burritos, 2 tacos, etc etc.... it's DELICIOUS.

Thank schar2017

We appreciate the kind words -- thanks for coming back to see us so much! We're glad you've always had a good time watching the bands, and it's great you enjoy the menu, too. See you again soon! Till then, The Sagebrush Cantina More

The Sagebrush has been the meeting place for decades. Great for large groups who want to meet for good food and a Margarita.
