This is by far one of my favorite places to eat! It is not unusual to walk into a packed house on a workday afternoon. The store has an orange and white roof, which should help you find it. If I thought my heart could handle it,I would eat here daily! It is the perfect combination of melty cheese, piping hot meat, and golden grilled onions! Or you can go for authentic and get a Philly with cheese-wiz. The bread they use is specially ordered and shipped to them. It has a nice crust on the outside and is soft and delicious on the inside! Their fries are always hot and perfect! They have a light batter on the outside and just look great, and are perfectly seasoned. They have chicken sandwiches and burgers too, but the owner says that 90% of their sales are a form of their FAMOUS Philly! Free refills on the fountain drink machine! Always a good thing! Price point is about $10-$11 to make your taste buds smile. It is totally worth in every now and then (or weekly if you are like me and love a good Philly Cheesesteak. I consider myself to be a bit of a Philly connoisseur, and this place has the BEST I HAVE EVER EATEN!
We literally just left the restaurant and had to write a review immediately. It was fantastic! Without a doubt the best Churrascaria in Houston. From the minute you walk in the door it is as if you are royalty and the waitstaff's sole job is to make certain that you have the absolute best dining experience possible. They do not disappoint. Of course that is just the service, how is the food? In a word Magnificent! The meat, of all varieties, is incredibly flavorful, tender and delightfully decadent. The endless waves of meat coming forth from the incredibly attentive waitstaff would have made this as wonderful a dining experience as possible, but then the dessert bar... Everything is brought to you from salad, to side dishes, to entrees, but the dessert bar has an entire area all of its own. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone for any occasion, it is not only the best Churrascaria in Houston but also the least expensive. Not only do you get marvelous service, fantastic food but also a fantastic atmosphere. If you are in the area, and by area .... I would drive fifty miles for a meal here... do not miss it.
11-11-09 was our first experience at La Cantina on I-10. The building looks appealing. The inside (including ladies room) was very clean!!!! The atmosphere was pleasant. The employees were kind and timely. Our food came out in a timely manner and was HOT. : ) I got the La Tapatia with a side of guacamole and my husband got the Cowboy. The chips were warm and crisp. The salsa was not too hot (with pepper) - I was sooooo pleased that I could eat it. The flavor of both salsas was AWESOME! I make my own salsa and their red sauce was very close to mine. Two thumbs up on the salsas!!!! The meals were DELICIOUS! Everything was seasoned to perfection. Even the lettuce and tomato tasted like lettuce and tomato and not unripe tasteless veggies. AND the guacamole was not overtaken by the taste of lime. I hate when all you taste is lime and no avocado. It is reasonably priced and we both were busting at the seams. We even brought some home. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TO EVERYONE!!! If they have gift cards I hope to get one in my Christmas stocking from Santa!
