Margaritas at No Mas! Cantina

No Mas Cantina: Castleberry Hill
When I moved to Castleberry Hill, No Mas! Cantina was one of the first places I went to eat. Even though I am Mexican, I do like a little slutty Texican food now and again. I was pretty disappointed with the food and wrote the vibrantly decorated restaurant off as a big FAIL. And I didn’t go back until this past Saturday when Moon and I were craving margaritas after this delicious gut-bomb at FLIP (tempura asparagus makes me happy).

So, we went over to give it another shot. The place was packed as it always is when I drive by. We took our seats on the outdoor patio and perused the drink menu. Most of the tables had towering glass pitchers filled with the house margarita. They looked awesome, but we weren’t keen on having Cuervo–the secret to managing a lot of tequila is drinking the right tequila. So, we ordered a couple of “Dulce” margaritas made with Partida Blanco Tequila, fresh lime juice and agave nectar (I recommend asking for a touch more fresh lime juice if you are sensitive to sweet flavors like myself). Each drink comes in a cute glass with a wooden bracelet attached to the bottom.

After chiding Moon for taking the bracelet off of his glass and wearing it, our waitress told us they were, in fact, ours to keep (my bad, Moonie) so you can “keep track” of how many drinks you’ve had. Cute idea.

My second…and last one I will show you lest you think me a lush.


As much as I didn’t like the food in the past, I can say this was an absolutely wonderful way to spend a weekend day with my favorite boy. And it is within walking distance from our house. You cannot beat that!
On our way out, we spotted a sign saying “Adios Cafe.” We naturally investigated.

Turns out the restaurant has opened a coffee and chocolate Bar that is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. They have loads of cool drinks like coffee laced with Arbol chilis and hot cocoas with cinnamon. They also make all their own pastries (churros, anyone?), truffles and empanadas (both savory and sweet). Such a great addition to the neighborhood. I will let you know how it is soon in an upcoming “Cheap Eats” column for Creative Loafing.

    Those burgers and fried asparagus from FLIP look oh so delicious…

    Can’t wait to hear from you about how their pastries are!

    I liked the burger here, especially the meat, but I don't think the bun was sweet enough. Especially compared to H&F.
