The worst thing about being handed a menu full of Mexican food is having to choose just one dish. That’s the agonizing decision I make every time I visit West Campus’ sumptuous Sunset Cantina.
Technically, I do get to choose two dishes, because I always start off a visit to Sunset Cantina with an appetizer of nachos. The $6 Tortilla Basket comes with plenty of chips, delicious salsa, sour cream, and (most importantly) fresh guacamole. If you’re feeling particularly hungry, you may want to consider splurging on the South Of The Border Fiesta, which comes in Half, Full, and XXL sizes, and will provide you with a tower of nachos chips covered in your choice of just about any Mexican topping you can think of. And although I have stuck with nachos every time, you can also start off with wings, fries, soups, and potato appetizers. You should get nachos though.
As for the main comida, I usually skip past the wide selection of pastas, seafood dishes, and steaks and flip to the page of mouth-watering quesadillas and tacos. To put it simply, the Baja Steak with Peppers and Onions taco ($14) is amazing and probably the best thing I have ever eaten. Every time I try something else, I regret it slightly and remember the taste of this taco.
Other recommendations include the Blackened Chicken quesadilla ($13), and the Fajita Spiced Chicken taco ($12). The menu also has really good looking burger, burrito, and sandwich selections which I hope to try throughout the duration of next year.
Sunset Cantina is a fun, not-too-expensive Mexican restaurant which will leave you stuffed. It’s my new favorite restaurant and I definitely recommend it!
