The Cantina located in Historic Biltmore Village and less than two miles from Downtown Asheville, boasts more than great Fresh Mex Food and a beautiful year round patio.
This restaurant takes their role of feeding people to another level. In 2013 The Coggiolas, owners of The Cantina and Asheville natives, developed a SKIPASIDE option. All of their, very generously large entrees, come with your choice of two sides. Diners may opt to SKIP one or both of their sides and The Cantina in turn donates $2 for every side skipped to Manna Food Bank, providing food with hope and dignity to people experiencing hunger.
As of January of 2021, The Cantina donated enough money to provide over 1/2 million meals for our neighbors in need.
Delighting every diner at every seat with creative quesadillas, burritos, and other Mexican favorites, the Cantina provides many vegetarian and gluten-free choices. A must-try is their unique Stuffed Grilled Avocado filled with shrimp or chicken, which pairs perfectly with the Cantina’s Famous Avocado Margarita. All dishes are handmade with fresh ingredients every day and may vary depending on the availability of local produce and products. So while in the area, consider The Cantina, and consider “Being Nice with Your Rice” and skipping a side.
