Summer Time is Burger and Beer Time!

Cantina 1511 Burger Menu

We were so happy with how the #BurgersOfTheDay turned out that we decided for the summer to offer all the burgers all day, every day. I know what you're thinking, a Mexican joint, doing burgers? We've added our 1511 twist to every one of these burgers. Some are topped with our signature Al Pastor Pork or our Barbacoa. We've got an amazing black bean burger as well as my personal favorite, El Diablo, complete with ghost pepper cheese. And every one is served with our Cantina fries and Chimmichurri aioli. Yum!

We've also added some great North Carolina beers to the list like Sugar Creek Pale Ale, and Catawba White Zombie. We still have the favorites, and back by popular demand at our Stonecrest location, we have the @BirdsongBrewing Jalapeno Pale Ale.

And it's just in time for #FathersDay too!

Tuesday's Burger of the Day

Black Bean Burger

Black Bean Burger

Here at Cantina 1511 we love trying new things. When we added burgers to the menu we received some great feedback, and some not so great feedback. At the time, we only had 3 burgers; the Knife and Fork Burger, the Chipotle Burger, and the Avocado Bacon Burger. We still have two of those, and we've recently added a Black and Blue Burger as well as the Burger of the Day.

We love the idea of a burger of the day. Burgers are one of those great lunch items that always satisfy. The Tuesday burger of the Day is the Black Bean Burger. After many weeks of testing and playing with the recipe, we finally were able to create the perfect Black Bean Burger. We've all had that one Black Bean Burger that either fell apart when you try to pick it up, or the one that was dry as a bone. Not this one. 

Our signature Black Bean Burger is topped with pico de gallo, romaine lettuce, and slathered with our house made Chipotle Ranch dressing and then finished with fresh slices of avocado.

#NationalTequilaDay

It's #NationalTequilaDay, and we know a thing or two about Tequila. We have over 40 different tequilas for you to enjoy. Because our love for tequila is so great, we're celebrating this weekend as well as next week.

Here at Cantina 1511 we are committed to serving you only the best quality tequila we can get our hands on. From our house to top shelf options we only serve hand crafted 100% Blue Agave tequilas.

For the uninitiated a blanco is un-aged clear tequila which can rest in stainless steel tanks for up to four  weeks before being bottled. Reposado tequilas are aged anywhere from 2 to 11 months in American  or French Oak barrels and take on a light golden hue.

Anejos rest in barrels for at least one year and  up to three after which they are classified as Extra-Anejos.  Anejos are reminiscent of whiskeys as a  result of this long aging process. We recommend using a blanco or a reposado in margaritas.  Anejos are traditionally enjoyed neat. Our Mezcals are 100% Agave and made in the traditional way imparting a huge smokey flavor.
