Eating at Cantina Taqueria on 111th Street is like attending a town hall with nicely fried fish tacos, unlimited chips and salsa, and a sign on the wall that says “Tequila Street.” There are two locations of this Mexican restaurant (one right above Central Park and one on the corner of Malcom X and 126th Street). Both are suitable for big groups of people who want to drink a few margaritas (each), and both have Happy Hours that run until 7pm during the week.
