Cantina 1511 - Stonecrest Ratings and Reviews

Ordered Enchiladas Tejanas, stuffed enchiladas with cheese (various types) and covered in cheese with chili braised beef. Ordered the large portion which came with three enchiladas. One of them had nothing in it. It was a empty rolled enchilada. The topping of chili braised beef consisted of 4 small cubes of beef. I mean the size of a sugar cube small. One of the cubes was mostly fat. Overall the skillet that the meal came in was an oily mess. Would not recommend this meal to anyone and not sure I would go back to Cantina 1511 for another try. I almost forgot. As an appetizer, we ordered the Antojitos Platter. The menu declared it was typical street food in Mexico. Sounded good! What we received was something that was put into a fryer to long. Looked like burnt bacon in some type of shell.

Great as usual !
My wife and I visited here again. Its just perfect !
Reasonably priced menu and a wonderful selection of Tacos.
There is a list of about 12 different tacos that you can mix and match (2 or 3) and so reasonably priced. Everyone of the tacos is unique and tasty.
We'll be back !

They used to be good but they seem to have had a large staff turnover with little training. Our appetizer order was never put in. Drinks came without ice. Check was delivered with entree. Wasn't asked if we wanted a cocktail Food used to be good but is now only subpar as menu keeps changing. Menu no longer labels gluten-free options and waiter did not know
We enjoyed our visit because of great food. Unfortunately, the A/C wasn't working very well. None the less, we had dinner because the food is always excellent. We had the table side Guacamole and it was outstanding as usual. All three of us ordered from the extensive taco menu and were very pleased.
Service was not up to par. Our server was loaded up with a large group along with his regular tables so the evening ended on a sour note but that certainly will not keep us from visiting again soon.
Excellent as expected.
We enjoyed dining here. The menu had changed ever slightly and the taco menu was now perfect.
It is so nice to have such a variety and able to select different tacos for the same entree. That is what the three of us did and enjoyed 6 different types or styles.
All of the staff were very attentive and great !
We will be back.
Dined here for the time Mother's Day all 4 of us ordered different items and they were all delicious
The pork shanks and the guacamole were stand outs apps
And the short rib and fajitas fabulous
Of the 7 different items we ordered none were losers.
We will be back!
My family and I go here every year for Mother's Day lunch. I used to love this place because the chips, salsa, guacamole, and burritos were great! The first year we went, the mothers were given a card and a coupon for a free meal for the next visit. I never used the coupon but I loved that they were willing to do that. Every year since, I have seen a decline in the service, the food, and the wait time for our meals. I do not think I will be going back next year because this year we were so unhappy with the entire experience. The waiter was all over the place and could not even remember if we ordered water. The cheese dip (queso) looked like they dropped it in water and then immediately brought it to our table (not cheese more like white water) and it was so late we got our food before the dip. I do not like to pay almost ten dollars for a dip that my dog wouldn't even eat. For the amount of money that is charged for this food, I expect better service and MUCH better food.

Excellent meal !
They have a large variety of tacos. We both ordered them and they were outstanding. Even the side salad was very tasty.
Ordered a vodka martini that was so good, I ordered another.
Very pleased with our visit.

I ordered the chicken enchiladas. My entree came out cold but the waiter quickly remedied that. My husbands tacos were ok. My kid however devoured a bowl of queso and tortillas in no time. Not as good this visit so hoping it was a fluke.
We went to Cantina 1511 before an early movie on Saturday and it did not disappoint. Get there early! We arrived at 6pm and had our choice of seats in the bar area. By the time we were finishing dinner at 6:45, we had people hovering over us trying to get a seat.
We ordered several margarita drinks, the orange and the 1800 were really good. My girlfriend thought the skinny margarita was only average. The queso appetizer was very good, make sure you ask for extra pita and chips. We each had ordered taco's, the ancho pollo was delicious.
The bar scene was lively with the steady stream of people arriving and the NCAA tournament on the TV's. Good food, great drinks and a lively atmosphere, it was a good place to start our date night.
Waiter had attitude when learned of food allergies
Our waiter had an attitude when I told him of our food allergies! Then when I asked for cheese on the side of my salad instead of on top, he told me they forget to do it in the kitchen so they were remaking it. When he finally brought out my "remade" salad, he asked if that was an allergy request or a preference. I told him it was a preference to have the cheese on the side and he said, "Oh, whew! I just noticed there was still a little cheese on it so, thank goodness it wasn't an allergy." So, I ask you, although it was nice of him to ask, do you think they actually "remade" my salad or just picked the cheese out? Hmmmm.
There were several more things that happened during our evening but, too much to type. Just know that not only would I not go back to this establishment but, I would not recommend anyone I know to go there either. I'm sad about that because i had heard such great things about it. That was not our experience at all. :/
Service was disappointing.
Service was disappointing. We kept having to remind our waiter for drinks for kids, for salsa, the bill etc. It was busy but it wasn't that busy to where he should have been so inattentive and absent minded. Food was too spicy and salty for my taste. We keep coming back because our kids like it and they have good drinks.
