Restaurant Reviews:

Since the only way a more informed decision can be made by future visitors is by a full description, we ask that you provide more than just a sentence or two on the restaurant. Bad example: "The food was great and the waiters very attentive. I'd eat there again." Good example: "I ordered the house specialty (filet mignon) and it was cooked perfectly, my partner ordered the chicken which was rather dry but the orange sauce was good. We had heavenly flan for dessert, and the wait staff was very attentive. Dinner for two including wine was $40-50."

We were really looking forward to eating here. I was a little disappointed. We were seated promptly. The server was friendly, but she was covered in salsa. I would think if there was an accident, the management would have back-up shirts and aprons. It was a little off-putting.

No refills on chips & salsa were offered, nor did we request. Menu was good. Food arrived quickly. Husband had carnitas (fried pork shoulder); I had burrito (on suggestion from server). Husband loved carnitas; I was disappointed. I have had better Mexican other places. I thought it was a little spendy for what you got, but certainly on par with other DD locations. With 2 beers (hubby) and 1 Coke, we spent $55.

What we had: Tacos Dorados [crispy chicken tacos] (me), Tortilla soup (Jen), Beef nachos (Shawn & Colleen split).

We've been to the Cantina several times (though somehow I've neglected to review it until today) and never been disappointed. By contrast, we've eaten inside the main restaurant twice and had poor service, wrong food and generally unfortunate experiences both times. The Cantina is one of those hidden-in-plain-sight secret places; excellent food, huge portions, inexpensive and rarely a wait to be seated.

My crispy chicken tacos were very tasty and Jen liked her tortilla soup. The soup is not on the Cantina menu but she was able to order it--actually off the childrens' menu--from the main restaurant. I didn't ask Colleen or Shawn how they liked the beef nachos, but the plate was empty when we left so it couldn't have been too bad.

Service: Excellent. Our server was training a new employee and managed to provide a high level of service at the same time. Drinks were refilled before they were completely empty, food orders were taken as soon as we were ready and delivered quickly, all with a smile.

Would we go back: Yes.

We visit Disneyland often and enjoy dining in Downtown Disney. Our first visit to Tortilla Jo's was a few months ago and was a bit disappointing. But we decided to give it another try on a Sunday evening around 5:00. The hostess said that we would need to wait outside in a line for 30 minutes. The wait did not seem very long because we enjoyed watching the people and listening to music. Because we asked for a booth the wait was a little longer. The restaurant itself was not full which helped the servers and busboys maneuver around the tables. Once inside the service was very fast. It was fun to listen to the mariachis and watch a balloon man create hats for the children and even adults. Our waitress must had a busy day because her uniform was quite soiled and dirty so her overall appearance was messy. In fact, most of the workers looked very tired. My husband ordered the taco salad and I ordered nachos with beef. The taco salad was fair--the tortilla shell tasted very greasy and old. The nachos would be better if served hot. The nacho plate was cold, some tortillas were burned and the cheese was lumpy and did not taste very good. The restaurant uses the same kind of chips for their table chips and nachos chips. So, the nachos had very small, broken chips--like the bottom of a chip bag. I expected larger chips on the nacho platter. The beef tasted good but, again, would have been better if served hot. I don't recommend this restaurant for tourists craving "authentic" Mexican food and I doubt we will eat there again.
