12th Street Cantina

Philadelphia, PA 19107
(215) 625-0321



  • Located in the Reading Terminal Market, this Mexican Cantina is a great place to pick up an inexpensive meal.
  • Ok, pretty standard Mexican food. Nothing spectacular or original but will do the trick if you're in need of a burrito fix.
  • The marinade on the steak is phenomenal. Wish they would share their secret. Can't go wrong with a naked burrito.
  • Average tacos at best. Eh. Wouldn't eat here again.
  • For Philly mexican this is pretty good.
  • The chicken quesadilla platter w/refried beans and rice is awesome!!!
  • Try the salsa verde - just enough kick!
  • Best marinated steak taco I've had in a long time. Get at least 2
  • The veggie burrito is mostly retried beans.. I wouldnt order it again.
  • I come here a lot for the mole, but the black lady always gives me the nastiest looks. WTF.
  • Definitely try the mole sauce. It's amazing!!
  • It would be a lot better without the utterly miserable girl who made my burrito today. When a customer says good morning, you don't scowl and walk away!
