Texas Cantina

  Pikk 45 ,   Old Town          +372 631 17 55     more than a year ago

Respectably busy (but rarely too packed) on a given Friday night, Tallinn’s Texas-style cantina is a casual place to knock back a corona while tapping your foot to the twangy country/rock or old blues played on the stereo.The long menu is mostly of a U.S./Tex-Mex-style (think steaks, tacos, fajitas, etc.) with other pub-grub favourites such as hot wings and a decent selection of vegetarian items thrown in as well. Not all dishes are as authentic as the Alamo, but enough of them are to make this a decent destination for homesick Yanks, or ravenous Americanophiles.

Well it was my friend's birthday and we tried to get in but they were full. There were tables clearly becoming available but they did not give us the option to wait. Instead they told us to leave literally. Maybe the food is good but with such bad service we'll never know!

I have been a client at Texas Honky Tonk & Cantina for many years. When I first came to Estonia five years ago, I tried to find Estonian restaurants to go to but as it happed I became a regular at Texas.The food is great!!! Spicy just as Texas should be and it has a home made feel to it. Also, there is a wide choise of dishes, so you don't get bored of eating there. The food does take a bit of time to prepare, they don't serve fast food.The service is friendly and at ease. The waitresses are good looking, sociable and not shy. If you want to take a picture with one of them, just ask.The atmosphere is laid back and comfy. It does get busy at the weekends, so it is a good idea to book a table in advance for the evening. If you go there often you'll start seeing faces you recognise because most of the clientele are regulars.In general Texas Honky Tonk & Cantina gives a little colour to medieval Tallinn. If you want something different but homely, it's the place to go.

We were attracted to the restaurant because it claimed to offer Tex-Mex food, and therefore reliable good, fresh, hearty meal. Upon our entry into the restaurant, we were greated warmly by the waitress and seated. Unfortunately this was the highlight of the experience and everthing declined from here.We ordered the half rack of pork ribs and the chicken enchillada. After a lengthy wait, our meals arrived and the alarm bells should have been ringing. We were surprised to find the ribs presented with a large steak knife having been stabbed through the centre. The enchillada resembled a soggy mound of cheese sludge.The ribs were adequate, though small in portion and tough in texture. The sauce was a strange dark red concoction that was best left as far away from the ribs as possible. Unfortunately the enchillada wasnt quite to the same standard. Upon taking the first mouthful my companion was hit with an overwhelming flavour of oregano. It seemed that the excessive quantities of oregano had been used as an attempt to conceal the lack of fresh ingredients and minimal presence of chicken. I have never tasted half that much oregano in an Italian dish, let alone in a Tex-Mex enchillada.We complained that the dish was inedible, evidenced by the substantial amount remaining. To this we were told that other customers had previously complained, but that was how the owner liked it. We questioned how the owner could be so arrogant - surely he recognises that it is the customers who pay the bills, and therefore it is important that the meals appeal to their tastes and not his own. Then we realised that as this restaurant was in the tourist district, there was no attempt to obtain repeat business, just to empty the pockets of unsuspecting tourists.My companion left hungry and I left dissatisfied, with no offer from the restaurant to refund the enchillada or offer an alternative (edible) meal.

being from texas i was a bit surprised to stumble by this bar, and very much skeptical before i walked in. they actually had many very southern/texas decor, and, a pleasant delight - - a LONESTAR beer tap! (however the beer was of course brewed nearby)the salsa dip was terrible but how much can you ask for? oh, and the bartender was wearing a full blown TEXAS flag shirt. outstanding! (i have pics to prove it)good kitschy place for visiting yanks
