In town for the day, I asked the locals where they recommended for lunch. I received all sorts of answers, no two the same, so I checked the reviews here. Ended up at La Cantina, and I'm glad I did! Food was piping hot and yummy. On the recommendation of my server, I ordered the Stuffed Poblano and a strawberry... More

Nice food at a great price. Servers are nice, food is excellent. You gotta try the chicken gravy on fajitas and rice. Well worth the charge. Buttery, savory.....over the top! You will not be sorry.

Had lunch there. Good combo options and good margaritas. Service was good. GF was a bit difficult due to the language barrier.

We chose La Cantina based on our fellow TripAdvisors' recommendations and we're happy with our choice. The first things I noticed in the casual dining room were the press making fresh tortillas and the staff's shirts advertising "Scratch Kitchen." My tamales & enchiladas meal and my colleague's stuffed pompano peppers were delicious. All the ingredients seemed authentic and fresh. The... More

The restaurant was neat and clean. The wait staff were friendly and attentive (but not overly so). The food was delicious overall. Chips were fresh and Christ and the salsa was flavorful and served warm. My husband ordered the chili relleno stuffed with seasoned ground meat and cheese with beans and rice. He raved about the flavor and tenderness of... More

If you are looking for the best Mexican food in Port Arthur, you must try La Cantina. I have not tried anything I did not like here. Also, their beef fajitas are worth the visit.

Very good service. Very loud atmosphere but we were at a corner table so that could have been it. Weird salsa. Not quite verde but not standard. We added lemon and salt to it and it was better. Little disappointed in the amount of food on the plate. It was filled up by some upside down tortilla covered in stuff... More
