(if I could I would rate this place as a zero) My husband and I dined here on August 2nd 2012. We were on vacation celebrating our 5 year anniversery and I have to admit the food was terrible for the price, the restaurant was set up for fine dining but the service was no where near the that. Esslie was our server only moments after being sat she offered drinks & appetizers. when we passed on appetizers she asked werre we ready to order not even asking had we been there before. It took 10 minutes for our drinks to arrive and 5 for our waters. We were passed by numerous times so Esslie could finish cleaning her tables so she could leave for the night. It was obvious we were her last table which wasn t even close even to good reasoning to why we were ignored. I had to ask another server for sour cream, that server approached two other people assuming that s who had been waiting on us. Then when the sour cream arrived Esslie asked why I couldn t just ask her and rolled her eyes and walked away from the table. My husband and I were done after she d continue to rush us through dinner service. I myself being a waitress find this very rude, inconsiderate and very disrespectful to treat anyone like that. Esslie was so busy closing and cleaning her other tables that she hadn t even noticed I hadn t touched my drink until she brought the check. After paying my husband and I sat for a little only to notice Esslie standing there staring at us just waiting for us to leave to grab the check so she could leave. We considered talking to a manager but with the way he d been acting towards the tables around us that night we assumed his attitude would be just as bad as hers. So with everything that s been said not only will we NEVER EVER return here but I would advise anyone thinking about going to this particular restaurant reconsider their decision after reading this and seeing the many poor reviews, no one should ever go out to eat and spend the money and not feel welcomed or wanted by anyone.
We ate at Cantina Laredo on 5-25-11 the salsa was the worst. The food was also nothing special it was definitley was not gourmet. the local mexican restaurant where we are from is 1/3 the price and 100% better.
Great food and good atmosphere...the only negative is on the weekends or during busy times the wait can be very very long 1.5 hours and more. We found all the businesses at Branson Landing get like that during the busy times so go early and be prepared to wait. Other than that the food is excellent and the service is good. Have been a couple of times and will go back. Would recommend if you are in the area of Branson Landing. My wife loves this place...Jim from GA
I live in Texas and eat at many mexican restaurants...and love to go to Branson, Mo every year for the shows, excitement, and food. The Cantina Laredo is the best mexican food I have eaten anywhere. The pinto beans and salsa/chips are absolutely awesome as well as the enchillada's and Marqarito's, all of it!!! Fantastic food and service and atmosphere!!! Johnnie from Texas
We enjoyed this food so much that we ate there twice in 3 days. If your a Guacamole fan, you must try their freshly made at the table Guacamole dip....yum yum ! In regards to FAJITAs.....try the CANTINA Fiesta....chicken, beef, pork ribs, quail, and pork shank that falls off the bone with skillet of onions, and lots of red and green bell peppers seasoned to perfection....around $25 bucks and enough food for 2.....trust me....you might order another side of beans and rice. Excellent choices of different flavors that will warm up the taste buds with 2 different salsa's, MEDIUM and HOTTTTTT. If you like Margaritas....this is the place to be, just be prepared for higher prices than most, but hey, your on vacation, live a little ! Regards to DESSERT....we were to full on chips and dip and our main meal to have one....but we did see 2 delightful treats come out with sizzlin skillet of chocolate fudge brownie covered with cream and Ice cream at the table....the aroma was very soothing but, I had already loosened my belt to the last notch. This is a MUST stop while in Branson.....ENJOY Branson travelers !
We just visited Branson. We spent three days and ate at Cantina Laredo twice. It was AMAZING!!!! It is THE BEST dining experience I ever had. I have been in the food business 30 years and this place is AWESOME!! Thanks for a great meal and good service. SUPERB!!
We really enjoyed this restaurant. The food is good, but a bit over priced at dinner. We went during the floods in April. The landing was flooded, so I called to see if they were open before we made the trek down, park etc...We get in there only to be told they can only offer cold items because they had no propane. I told her I had called but was not told that. She didn't apologize, and seemed impatient when we showed apprehension on whether or not to have guacamole and chips as our main course. We went to the bar to think about our next plan of action but realized we had missed happy hour by 1 minute. We told the bartender our story, but she pretty much walked away to help other patrons. So we left and haven't been back. I felt like they could have run some drink specials for the night since that's pretty much all they could offer. We got a lot of big city attitude in little Branson, MO.
My favorite restaurant while visiting Branson. Loved the atmosphere and food. It was a little expensive but unlike most Mexican restaurants, the beef/steak in the dishes was not rubbery or tough. It actually tasted like real steak. My beef item was my favorite part of my lunch and I usually prefer chicken.
