“It doesn't look like much” , but this “microscopic” LES cantina is still “something of a scene” after more than a decade, serving “flavorful” Mexican fare and a “lay-you-out-flat” tequila list; its “highly affordable” price point doesn’t hurt either.

Food was very tasty but service was slow. Cold air engulfed whole seating area. Dark lighting and loud music.

First off, I do want to say the drinks were good and the server was really hospitable and professional. Our negative experience mainly stems from these two very rude waitresses. Throughout our night, they were very insistent on kicking us out of our table. They really hit the final straw when one of the waitresses comes to our table and asks us to get out of our table to make space for people who were going to eat dinner. Normally, I would not be annoyed by that request, albeit a rude one, but the context of the situation was absolutely absurd. Other people in the restaurants were sitting down, without food on their tables and without drinks. She comes to our table, once we had all ordered a round of drinks for our table---drinks, which in all honesty are probably more expensive than any of the food those people were going to order. She asks us to take our drinks and sit on a window ledge near the corner of the restaurant. In other words, she was asking us to take out drinks outside. This was rude beyond comprehension. Again, the server was great and so were the food and drinks, but the service from these waitresses definitely needs some correcting from management.

Jalapeno margerita! The best. Food is great too. Sexy but small place.
