Cantina Mexicana is a wonderful Tex-Mex family restaurant formally known as the Taco House. In 1978 at the age of seventeen, its current owner Gloria Arias began working at The Taco House, and while working hard long hours as a full time dishwasher she learned, and studied her way into becoming a chef. She was then offered the opportunity to purchase the Taco House, and became the new owner in 1995. In 2005 she changed the Taco House name to its current name Cantina Mexicana. She since has opened a second location in Arlington as Cantina Mexicana Too.
