Amber’s Mexican food is good and reasonably priced. The staff is very friendly—knows you by name. Kids like it and can get what they want —tacos, burritos, quesadillas. We usually opt for shrimp fajitas mostly, although my husband switches it up for enchiladas occasionally. Both...More

Very ordinary Mexican eatery in the land of amazing Mexican food options !. Food looks sad.. tastes bland and makes your stomach bloat and cramp. The restaurant was busy so we decided to go in. Big mistake !... Tacos were stuffed with tasteless shredded lettuce....More

I went for Taco Tuesday and not only was the service slow, but the food came out cold. The chips and salsa are horrible which typically is a reasonable judge of a good (or not so good in this case) mexican restaurant. It's american mexican...More

This is a good, honest Mexican restaurant that serves the usual fare. There are a couple of differences that distinguish it: It has the brightest, best salsa I have had in a restaurant. It does not scorch you mouth--in fact, it's not hot at all....More

Food average at best. Both entrees were not even very hot. My entrée came out way before my husband's food. The waitress was on her phone the whole time; which has happened on several occasions. Don't plan on going again.

Consistently good Mexican food. The salsa and chips are excellent and I love their carnitas and tostadas. My husband enjoys the chile verde burritos.

Amber's Cantina is just plainly great. They never make you wait for a table very long, and get your food our quickly. The staff are very kind, and are attentive to your every need. I recommend any one of their burritos, they are amazing, but...More

I've been to Amber's Cantina several times and it has never disappointed! The wait staff are always so friendly, food is great and always prompt. Friday nights are busy, we got in before 5.30pm and got the last table! A very popular wee restaurant.
