This restaurants in a pretty nice location. Nicely decorated inside and the service was prompt. I thought the food was just OK. I also thought it was overpriced for what I got. $6.50 for a Single fish taco is nothing to write home about. And it didn't have that much fish in it. Glad I went but not spectacular enough... More

Food is great, and there are more different kinds of margaritas than i knew existed! Good location in Charlotte with plenty of parking. And clearly it's a local place because everyone is table-hopping and talking to friends. So it's a noisy happy place with really good food and great drinks. huh. guess i will come back.

Love the homemade guacamole and chips. Had a few other dishes here all were enjoyable. Only two complaints each I go to this restaurant there's always food crumbs that are noticeable and it is usually very noisy.

This was my first visit to the Park Rd location. I have been multiple times to the Stonecrest location. I went for lunch, the food and service were great. I had the Marco Polo and Carne Asada tacos. The Marco Polo is a particular favorite of mine. The food is fresh and never disappoints. I will definitely be back.

Visited Cantina 1511 on a busy Friday evening and after a 30 minute wait we were seated. Wait wasn't a problem as we were able to get drinks at the bar. Staff was very attentive and personable. Loved the Crab and Avocado Quesadilla and the Queso Dip!

Lucky to have a sunny warm 77 degree day in Feb!! Dined al fresco and enjoyed the yummy enchiladas, hubby had chili and chicken tortillas soup. Service was a bit slow as everyone decided to come outside and enjoy the sunny warm day!!! Fun family atmosphere as well.

My wife and I were staying the night in Charlotte and craved Mexican food. We didn't want to drive very far in the ever increasing Charlotte traffic. I did a search and found Cantina 1511, not far from our hotel. We were greeted and seated promptly. Our server, Melina, was outstanding. We told her we were first-timers. She patiently explained...

Located in the Park Road Shopping Center. Came here for the 1st time for a birthday party. A very busy place and a bit disorganized. We told them we were with a group and had reservations yet they tried to seat the 3 of us at a small table. When everyone arrived and placed the orders the meals did not... More

We ate dinner here with a social group for dinner and drinks. We ordered a burito and a salad. The food was average and the environment was comfortable for a social gathering.

Been several times and have tried a couple of things. The quest is pretty authentic and yummy. It always seems to come room temperature but the flame below heats it up after a few mins. We tend to eat too much of this... The steak fajitas are surprisingly good - with mushrooms and squash the unlikely accompaniments to the normal... More
