Well...I am rarely giving bad reviews. Prefer not to do it then ruin someone's business. However, I never in my life had been in a place worse that this! It is started with a salsa - canned tomatoes without any spices and very mediocre salsa (would not be surprised if from some kind of can also). Then I have ordered... More

We stopped by Cantinflas for a snack before our supper and had the Guacamole with salsa and their homemade large chips and it was very good. I have never had chips that large but they break into smaller chips easily. The homemade salsa was very good also and the service was very accommodating. The location in downtown Greenville is also... More

I had a great time eating dinner and having a Margarita. The waitress was very accommodating. Very good food but the price added up fast. Nice place to sit out on a warm fall day.

Relatively affordable, good location, good service, good fajitas. It's not my favorite Mexican place in Greenville, but it's very good!

The littl bowl of guacamole was $9.00. I almost fainted when I saw the bill. I old have preferred refried beans but they were ok. I think I will... More

The outside venue is very inviting. We were served tostada chips upon our arrival and they were very good. Decided to order (3) appetizers. We ordered the Ole Ole Guacamole to compliment the Tostada chips and it was excellent. Next we had Cantinflas platter and the Olmeca Quesadilla which both were very tasty. The homemade margarita was sized nicely but... More

We had lunch here the other day. Staff were very friendly, and service was quick. The food was ok for a small Mexican place it lacked the flavor of Mexico

It doesn't usually draw a big crowd but if you like margs you can't go wrong here. The service is above and beyond I think we had five yes five different servers check on us. All we had were margs and chips with salsa, which was complimentary. The margs however are pricey. Very large and you left feeling pretty groovy.
