F&D Cantina has opened its second location in Thornton Park. The highly anticipated restaurant, located at 617 E. Central Blvd., is the sister to F&D Cantina in Lake Mary, which attracts droves of loyal fans with its festive atmosphere, excellent service and top-notch Mexican-inspired fare.
"We've built quite a reputation up at the Lake Mary location," said Charly Robinson, owner and founder of the F&D family of restaurants. "Thornton Park is an exciting area. There's a lot of growth, and there are a lot of people we think are looking for a spot like this. We thought it was a perfect fit."
F&D Cantina Thornton Park will deliver the same fun feel as the original, with striking art and décor to set the mood, as well as a showpiece bar to serve up the eatery's signature margaritas.
But the real draw will be the full menu of Mexican-inspired favorites. F&D Cantina serves up incredible dips, including queso and guacamole, delicious street tacos, and takes on Mexican favorites like chile rellenos and enchiladas. The menu also includes a variety of vegetarian and vegan options, including Beyond plant-based meats.
The location will also offer several specials, including $5 House Margarita Mondays and Taco Tuesdays. F&D Cantina was named Best Mexican Restaurant by the Orlando Sentinel in 2020.
F&D Cantina is part of the F&D family of restaurants, which includes F&D Kitchen and Bar in Lake Mary and the F&D Woodfired Italian Kitchen brand, which includes locations in the Hourglass District, Longwood and Winter Park.
