    The Margaritas are simply the bomb. The Queso dip is great and the salsa is good as well. Service is a bit hit and miss, but definitely one of my favorite Mexican food restaurants in the area. Get one of their burritos that have the queso on them ... good stuff.

    Four coworkers and I went to lunch at Cantina Louie. Servers were polite and happy. They quickly came to our table and took our drink order. Drink arrived quickly and our food order was taken. The chips and salsa were delicious. The queso was the best I have ever had. The food was delicious and affordable. The restaurant was clean--lots of wait staff in attendance too. We were able to get back to work well within an hour. I highly recommend this restaurant. I look forward to going back.

    Food was cold and the waitress said it was no reflection on her. While I understand that she didn't cook the food that was not something to tell the customer. I had NO issue with waiting an hour to be seated if my meal was good but is was not. I got a cold under cooked steak fajita skillet. WILL not go back!!!!!

    Food was delicious and the staff was very helpful. We were seated immediately and checked on several times during our meal. They have about a dozen very reasonably priced lunch specials. The only thing I found questionable was the skull/skeleton motif throughout the restaurant; some people might find it off-putting. For those who don't, this may be an enjoyable place to get good Mexican food.

    Worst service ever went on a Thursday night will not go back food was ok

    On a busy Friday night in mid June 2014, we were seated within half an hour and served quickly. The service was excellent, a very enthusiastic hard working wait staff! The food incredible! It was the small things, like the pico de gallo. Some places, it just tastes like watery tomatoes and onions. But this pico de gallo was flavorful, the kind you could eat by the tablespoonful without anything else! The guacamole was fresh and flavorful. Chips were plentiful. The queso cheese was the authentic white queso, not from some jar. I adore queso, I order it at every Mexican place I go to, and this was by far the best I ever tried. The chicken in the quesadillas was fresh marinated chicken, not frozen pre-cut slices of chicken. My only nit picky complaint was that I like really thick cold sour cream, theirs was a bit runny. Great prices. Great staff. Outstanding tasty food. Be sure to ask why St. Anthony is hanging upside down in the hallway of the restrooms. If I lived anywhere near this place, I would be a regular!

    We were wanting tacos and thought we would give them a try. We were greeted at the door and seated right away 15 mins later someone came and took our drink order, we had to wave a waiter down to take our order after being there for almost 20 mins after 30 mins we still haven't received our chips. After being there 45 mins we received our food. once we were done we had to wave yet another waiter down after waiting 15 mins to get a check the correct one but when the waited came back he had run our card for someone else check which cost more than our check. The whole time the waiters were talking over by the bar the other tables had attentive service i noticed. Over all the food was good but due tp the service I can not see myself going back.
