We learned this afternoon that the ownership has decided to close this place of business. No word of a re-opening has been available.

At some point I am hoping that the ownership recognizes the problem before this location closes. It is a great location, awesome decor, imaginative menu, delicious food, and staffed well. But the service is terrible. At one point I could count 9 service staff standing...More

Food wasn't amazing, service was pretty good, nice bar and outdoor area. Menu has lots on it and if you like oysters and New Orleans style food there's a desperate menu just for that.

Cantina Texas is the newest eatery from the Castillo Family, famously known for Waco's favorite Tex-Mex restaurant - La Fiesta. We have a large outdoor patio, often featuring live music from Texas bands, or join us for Karaoke on Tuesdays. Our patio is also perfect for enjoying a weekend brunch with $1 mimosas. Or if you prefer, catch a game on one of our giant TVs. Make sure you stop by during happy on weekdays, when appetizers are half off. Start your Cantina Texas experience with Smokey Pesto Deviled Eggs, an order of Citrus and Oregano Wings, Chunky Queso or a plate full of Texas Gulf Coast Peel & Eat Shrimp. Next, enjoy our soup of the day, a Roasted Turkey Breast Sandwich enriched with Cranberry Mayo and Stuffing, Buffalo Burger, Burrito or Stockyard Filet of Sirloin, and finishing with our Fredricksburg Peach Cobbler. These dishes are only a small sampling of our menu filled with fresh ingredients grown in Texas, served by a dedicated wait staff.
