bland Bland BLAND – Yuck! The food is barely average. I actually had to add salt to my food - and since when do you ever have to add flavor to Mexican food? Do not take anyone here on account of the food.
Friendly wait staff – The wait staff is quite friendly here in spite of being extremely busy.
The tequila-soaked frat party never ends at this beachside bar. – The Scene
This massive bar looks like it was air-lifted out of Mazatlan, with its ramshackle-cantina feel, a sprawling patio with a roaring fire pit, and a crowd of rowdy revelers. The interior bar is equally crowded, but worth wading through when fish-taco cravings hit. Otherwise, sit and chill on the front patio, where the beach atmosphere is best appreciated on weekend afternoons and weekday evenings. However, those looking for a more festive vibe should head here on a Friday or Saturday night, when it transforms into a hot singles spot.
Though some claim they come for the classic Mexican food, the real draw is the scene; the Cantina is perhaps the biggest pickup joint south of Sunset. The 20- to 40-somethings are pretty obvious about scoping each other out, so for people feeling lonely, companionship is only a Corona away.
Don't come here! RUDE! – This place has the rudest waitresses and terrrible service. Food is bland. We went to celebrate a friends birthday. We had to wait for a long time for drinks, approximately 45 mins. I finally went to the bar to ask for more drinks for my table and was told to go back to my table and we would be served. The waitress came back with an attitude and then told us that she "couldn't handle this." Then a new waitress took over and then kept our change to conveniently tip herself. We were not demanding and just asking for another beer. I could not believe this and would never go back again! Upon telling some people this experience, I was told over and over that they received the same kind of treatment. You make the decision. Dont waste your time or money.
BAJA IS THE BOMB!!! – Baja has it all. great atmosphere, Huge patio to party and make new friends. The food was delicious. The Fajitas were HUGE!!!
Loved the MArgartias and the Server was great!! and Hot!!!
I would take my friends here to party AND i would take my parents here for GOOD MEXICAN FOOD!!!
LOVED IT...... – I LOVE THIS PLACE! My friends and I had a wonderful time here..... Spent about 120 including drinks, there were 6 of us total. Our waiter was great, on time with EVERYTHING. We had the best time..... Going there again when I get back to LA.
low key hang out – It was crowded. The bar tender was cute and he recommended a very good wine to me. A fun low key place to go to with friends.
Great Atmosphere! – One of the best places to go for happy hour, especially during the sporting events, you would need to arrive early or else you'll be standing in a line to get in (it gets crowded). The drinks are great, excellent service & good people. There's a great taco bar & an unlimited chips & salsa disposal, so you can just help your self. I always meet someone whenever I go.
total cheezy fest – All I experienced was chics dressed very unclassy and men with too much attitude thinking they were all that. I never thought the beach community was like this - whered these ppl come from.
Fun on tha patio – Fun to hang out on the patio. Nice locals hangout.
