Mexican has got to be one of my favorite foods out there and I was excited to find out that Cantina 76 was opening at Freshfields Village.  With locations in Columbia and Greenville, I’m glad they picked Kiawah for their 3rd outpost.  My recommendations?  The Dirty Queso to share, Roasted Chicken Taco, and you can’t go wrong with any of their Enchiladas.

Another great thing is that the portions are generous and are perfect to share.  My kids are the pickiest eaters and they even found a few things that they liked and munched on the endless chips and salsa.
