The inspiration for Calaveras Cantina’s unique design and concept is the beautiful culture of Mexico. Its strong sense of family and hard work are two of our most important values. When we say hard work, we mean mothers painting umbrellas, fathers crafting tables, and brothers building chandeliers. So stop on in, grab a chair, and enjoy the atmosphere. Here you will indulge in the most delectable Mexican Cuisine north of the border.
We take tremendous pride in providing the freshest ingredients available. All of our sour mixes and purées are made fresh daily to ensure the most delicious cocktails. Our bartenders spend each morning slicing fresh fruit to uniquely garnish your Salma’s Snake Dance Margarita.
Calaveras Cantina proudly sources all of our produce locally whenever possible, and our avocados are imported directly from Mexico. Our most popular item is our savory Guacamole, which is prepared for you tableside by your own personal “Guacamolador”.
