Neighborhood: West Village
Cuisine: Mexican

This lively and friendly Tex-Mex restaurant is decorated with lots of sombreros and travel posters. Largely a neighborhood spot, it attracts people with its wickedly strong margaritas and low-cost dinners. Come with a friend and order some guacamole and chips and salsa to start, then share an order of chicken or shrimp fajitas and watch it arrive at your table sizzling hot. There is also a shabby-looking upstairs bar area where happy hour specials can be ordered. Alfresco dining is available in El Cantinero's outdoor garden on the second floor. Watch out for the Monday and Tuesday specials.
