Cantina 18

After the disaster that was Cantina South, I still needed to get my Mexican fix, so decided to try Cantina 18, located in Cameron Village. What a difference 12 blocks make.

The service was impeccable; prompt and courteous but not intrusive. The queso and chips ($5) were great. The chips were warm and crispy. The queso was a little mild for my liking, but very tasty nonetheless.

I tried the shrimp taco, the special of the day. I find a lot of restaurants are quite miserly when it come the the shrimp dishes, so I give Cantina 18 bonus points for being generous.

For $7, the taco came with a side of rice, beans, and slaw.

It was lunch on a weekday, and sometimes my wife reads these reviews, so I will not admit to trying a margarita. But I hear that they are good, too.

I really have nothing but compliments for Cantina 18.

Highly recommended.
