Order the guacamole.....it is very good. The waiter mixed up the order and forgot to bring 2 requested side dishes. He did not write it down. The bowls of soup are on the small side except the entrees are a good size

Cantina #1 in Mall of America is a great way to escape for a while. You immediately notice the fun atmosphere when you walk in. There are palm trees and surf boards to decorate the bar and restaurant. You imagine that you are on an...More
