5 STAR REVIEW

All I have to say is… tasty carnitas, complete with crispy bits. That is enough to bring me back again. Service was wonderful, we never had empty drinks or chips for long at all.

For meal I ordered chicken fajitas ( white chicken breast and came with broccoli, onion, bell pepper, carrots and zucchini that were cooked perfectly!) My friend ordered Tacos and they were very good too.

tequila | mezcal

This photo was taken at Roberto’s family’s blue agave farm in Jalisco.

Roberto grew up appreciating the methods that make the finest tequila and mezcal. Today his restaurant, Roberto’s Cantina, celebrates the art of this very special distilled liquor. When you dine, we’ll be happy to help you do your own taste testing at your table by lining up several shots of various brands to savor with your meal. You will discover the subtle differences in taste due to how each was distilled and aged.

Be sure to join us in our next tasting event to learn more about tequila and mezcal.
