We’re still searching for a good Mexican restaurant to eat at and decided to try Mi Familia Restaurante y Cantina. Â A cantina in Spanish means bar.

Normally, the restaurant’s that have bars have separate eating areas. Not so with this one. Â When we entered, there was a sign that said “Our credit card machine is down. Â Cash only. Â ATM in … ” Â Since we had cash we continued to enter.
To the left of entering, is the bar area, directly ahead is the above, uh, let’s call it a Â sculpture. Â From the tables directly past the sculpture are tables and booths. Â We were seated immediately.
We were served chips with guacamole dip and hot salsa. Â The chips were not very good. Â I’ve bought better ones at the store.
I had the super burrito (it’s hidden under the lettuce). Â The burrito was served with whole cooked pinto beans and rice. Â The rice was cooked a little too long but the burrito tasted good. Â The beans lacked flavor.

My husband had the enchilada verdes with rice and beans. Â His response was “it was okay.”
We probably won’t be going back to this restaurant. Â It was too bar-like for me and the food was not worth the money spent. Â Although, our waitress was very good.
