This is the first time we tried this place during our visit to Michigan city and we were not disappointed. It is a decent size restaurant with cozy interiors. The staff is great with hospitality and so is the food. We ordered Chicken burritos and vegan fajitas. The portion size was great for the price we paid and tasteful too. They had all different kinds of margaritas but I stuck with Classic one and very pleased with the quantity and quality. Parking is ample in front of this place. But they have long wait depending on the time and day. Will definitely come back. 4 star review: it kind of took long for them to come to us since we first sat.

Great atmosphere here everyone is kind and outgoing. The food was good for those who have an open taste. Margaritas were delicious and well prepared. Overall it was great lunch and food experience.

Food was amazing, kind of small portions for a Mexican restaurant but still amazing none the less. My wife had margaritas and said they were great, I just had beer, plenty of Mexican options for beers. Our server was what made the experience fantastic. Unfortunately I forget her name because I’d love to give her props but she was super helpful, made great suggestions, was bubbly and happy and just a pleasure. I’d definitely come back, hope she’s there next time.

Not only were 2 of my dinners missing BUT the food quality was horrible! Why is there a soggy chip in the dinner? WHY would you put the tortillas INSIDE the container? How do I know if you used gloves? That’s just disgusting.


The atmosphere was nice. Our waitress was very friendly and did a great job. Our food was very good. My husband loved the Steak Cheese Tacos and the fajitas were good. We will definitely be back.

Din in here. A tad crowded today for lunch. Only a few minutes to wait Excellent chips and salsa. The Trio Steak Tacos we're very good. Enchilada Verda we're a hit with the College kids.

James Pemberton

Absolutely delicious food and portion sizes! The staff are wonderful and are excellent at their job. Prices are what you would expect, not too high, but not discount prices. That being said they are worth every penny spent!

Had a GREAT dinner as usual and our waitress, Angela was the greatest. What a wonderful server, El Cantarito is lucky to have such a great, energetic and friendly young lady like her.
