Nice setting and comfortable atmosphere. The food is always awesome but spiced! Love their chili. I can say that the bartenders are slow and unfriendly.

I have never been to the area before but I was walking around Channelside with my dog looking for an apartment. It was a gorgeous day and sitting outside was perfect. The waitress was amazing. I think she was the only one working and I felt bad for her. But when she came out with menus and a bowl of... More

I love City Dog Cantina. The food is great, the atmosphere is fun, and I love that there is outdoor seating. I highly recommend this place. They take regular food, put their twist on it, and make it 10 times better.

If you want Tex-Mex or a resonable facsimile of it this place is great. Been there several times and while the food is always good the service is horrible.

Locals enjoy the Cantina and outside area. Good food at reasonable prices. Bring your pet, everyone does, and sit outside under an umbrella and just relax. Good wait staff and excellent bar staff. They remember almost everyone and what you like. Try our special "Millionaires Coffee". We made it up. They will know.

Worst service. Bartenders were wasted. On their phone. Owner sat on side, obviously doesn't give a ...... They should close. Have something, someone driven with a professional staff run that place. The Jamie girl, train wreck. Wow. #BarRescue 1 on 1!

The Chicken sandwich, taco, Rollin Nolan Nachos, Torpedo (drink), and steak Sandwich are the typical go-tos that I cycle through. Overall, the staff is awesome. I will sometimes go to Pour House (next door) for beers, and get take out from City Dog.. Perfect combo!
