My fiancé and I love this place. Tasty food, great value, and a truly local vibe. A hidden local gem indeed.

Placed an order for pick up. Had the poorest chicken fajita i ever ordered in my life. Chicken was tasteless and soggy. The sides were also bland, greasy, and lacked inspiration. Dont waste your time or money ordering from this place.

So I go here all the time, so much so that the waitresses know me lol. I live in the area and think it's a little hidden gem which I've known about since I was a kid and I'm in my late 20's... the happy hours are great, great bang for your buck, can't beat the price for sure! And the food is pretty good. I'm not mexican, but I'd had plenty of mexican food in my life and I think the food is pretty good and very adequately priced. Therefore, this is still a neighborhood fav for me, and a spot I'll continue to frequent for happy hours, dinners and any time I want to get my dancing on. (Friday's get really packed by probably NYU students and it becomes a little much, so I would avoid friday aftwork happy hours there unless you are planning on getting there right when the bar opens!) Which I've done :-)

I'm really shocked at the positive reviews for this place. I know it's a great party and festive place for drinks, but i didn't go there for those reasons. I wanted to get a decent meal. My beans looked colorless and my chimichanga looked like they had been frozen for months and simply defrosted, not having any crispness to the tortilla or the proper color. El Cantinero is in my hood so I wish it could be a place that I could frequent. Most of the patrons look like they don't "live in the city" - maybe they just don't know what good food is.

I can not ever give this place a bad review, i have been dining and drinking at El Cantinero for over 18 years and it's the best place in town. the waiters are excellent and the drinks are cheap in price but strong. I love everything about this place, tried many different mexican rest and they can not top this one. El Cantinero is the best
