Aspiring potential but couldn't quite come through.
Went with some friends this weekend to try out the new Cantina Texas. The best thing I would have to say is the atmosphere. It has a very cool Texas Hill Country kind of feel to it and the bar area is very neat. The service was good. The menu has a lot of unique things that I think a lot of thought went into BUT I'm not sure anyone is tasting the dishes after they are actually prepared. We got the chunky queso as an appetizer and it was pretty good except that the "chunky" just happened to be a couple of big 'ol pieces of pork fat.I had goat cheese enchiladas with grilled vegetables and black beans. The enchiladas apparently had way too much sour cream (and I love sour cream) in them because they were SOUR! Grilled veggies were good, black beans eh. My friend got the tamarillo chicken street tacos. Again, sounded really good but totally lacked in flavor. Two others got the chicken fried steak and I'll say this, it was HUGE! Lots of crust and pretty good. The mashed potatoes were good if you like the ones with "peelings" in them. But all in all came out feeling not quite so comforted by the supposed Texas comfort food restaurant. Should have gone to Taquerio #9!
