If word on the block hasn’t reached you yet, then it’s time to brush up on your Español and check out the new Cantina Louie at 725 Atlantic Blvd.

Cantina Louie is a fun, affordable Mexican Cantina serving authentic Mexican Street food, including tostadas, sope, tacos and tortas, along with many specialty cocktails. With recent success at their St. Augustine location, the fiesta has now made its way up to Atlantic Beach and has been drawing large crowds since opening in late November.

The theme surrounding Cantina is the Day of the Dead, with fantastic neon murals, sugar skull decorations, hanging lanterns and handmade artwork.

Cantina Louie offers daily specials with the prices and variety to keep you coming back. You can chow down on Taco-Tuesdays, where all tacos are $2.99, like the specialty surf ‘n’ turf, ceviche or Sriracha shrimp taco. Get your taste buds going by pairing them with the Jalapeno margarita or margarita Louie, the house special. Sunday’s showcase their homemade tamales, where guests that grew up on the West Coast have said they, “finally found authentic Mexican food that tastes like it did back home.”
