Authentic ingredients pack into a menu of time-tested Mexican dishes in Urban Cantina’s luchador-themed downtown digs. Limber up mouth muscles with pre-entree nibbles from an appetizer menu that includes crispy taquitos, filled with cheese, chicken, and black beans and fried to golden crispness. Chicken belays down a mountain of the cantina nachos appetizer, which is laced with melted cheese tributaries, refried-bean ledges, and emerald hillocks of guacamole. In the carne asada entree, marinated skirt steak rests atop a cheese quesadilla bed like a nesting mariachi band, and crispy chunks of roasted pork tumble around a guacamole salad in the Urban carnitas. The super chimichanga wraps crispy tortilla capes around beans, chicken, and cheese before drenching them in white queso beneath the restaurant’s vibrant, swaying piñatas. Within the shop’s day-glo-pink walls, a bevy of lucha-libre masks grin from shelves, adding to the eclectic décor and allowing guests to gain a colorful new persona without stealing a peacock’s identity.
Urban Cantina’s chefs create a big menu packed with Mexican favorites. From popular dishes such as the super chimichangas and urban carnitas to crispy roasted pork served with a guacamole salad, tortillas, and rice and beans, their food underscores the staff's commitment to freshness. The team also folds authentic Mexican tacos such as shrimp or fish tacos and al pastor or crunchy tinga tacos with chipotle-marinated chicken. For a lighter meal, the chefs create “skinny” options such as salads, tacos with grilled chicken and low-fat corn tortillas, plus naked fajitas that come with no tortillas, no pants, and no shame.
