If you are craving Mexican food, there is no place that can hit the spot quite like Cantina 76. It has a menu with options for everyone from spice lovers to picky eaters!
Unfortunately, this “hidden gem” is not so hidden anymore, so the wait can get long at dinner time. However, lunch is the perfect time to enjoy some top-notch Mexican cuisine without the wait!
Their tacos are the perfect thing to get for lunch and will only run you about $3 each. There are 10 different tacos to mix and match with, but my personal favorite is the chicken pesto taco.
Cantina has a great atmosphere and is a great place to get together and catch up with all your friends and share one of the amazing appetizers. The “Tres Hombres” sampler which includes queso, guacamole and salsa is a must, but you might have a hard time sharing it!
