The Studewood Cantine, a new restaurant slinging Tex-Mex classics and margaritas on tap, has officially arrived in the Heights.

The restaurant opened its doors at 1111 Studewood Street Suite A in September, taking over the space formerly occupied by Los Cucos Mexican Cafe. A Facebook page for the restaurant indicates that it will host a grand opening celebration on October 12 complete with free queso and cheap beer, but in the meantime, diners can score this self-described “eclectic blend of Tex-Mex and American cuisine” during he restaurant’s “soft opening.”

As far as the food is concerned, look forward to tacos served on freshly made tortillas, fajitas, queso loaded down with guacamole and spiced ground beef, and stuffed avocados. Grilled fish, chicken wings, and enchiladas are also on offer. On the cocktail side of the menu, find margaritas served on-tap or mixed with fruity flavors like mango, peach, strawberry, and prickly pear.

The Studewood Cantine is now open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
