Cantaritos | Edmond

1333 N Santa Fe Ave, Suite 118, Edmond, OK 73003

I, Sarah, am a huge fan of Cantaritos restaurant in Edmond! I have been dining here for about a year now, and have never been disappointed with any food or service. With five different options when it comes to their authentic street tacos, starting at $2 each, it’s great on a college budget. However, I cannot go here without ordering their white queso dip. All paired with a classic lime margarita, of course.

Cantaritos has great-affordable pricing and a comfortable atmosphere. They also frequently offer many specialties on food and drinks, which is always a plus. I will always recommend this place to anyone.

Hours: Monday – Saturday 11am-9:30pm & Sunday’s 11am-9pm
