There is a new hot spot in town, aptly named “Lava Cantina.” Mixing live music in an upbeat, open-air setting with a unique blend of Cajun and Mexican cuisine, the place is piping hot in more ways than one … and word has spread.
Despite arriving early on a Saturday night, a line had already formed out the door with a one-hour wait, yet no one seemed deterred. The hostess happily offered to text us when our table was ready, so we were free to roam and explore. Nebraska Furniture Mart of Texas was well within range, but we chose to sneak peeks at what awaited us at the restaurant.
In the lobby, a two-story rustic guitar made from Hurricane Katrina debris stole the show. The place hummed with energy while still feeling casual and relaxed. The hostess and wait staff sported bandanas and sweet southern smiles, which contributed to the down-home feel. Corrugated metal and refined wood framed the walls, with brick accents highlighting the well-lit collection of spirits at the bar and the elevator to the coveted balcony.
