Ask where to find good Mexican food with a fun atmosphere in Geneva and Sergio’s Cantina will most likely be mentioned. Sergio’s is an authentic Mexican grill and bar, ideally located on the corner of State and First Streets (in the old Potter’s Place). Since its opening in December 2007, the restaurant has been a popular spot. In fact, it was voted one of the best Family and Mexican Restaurant in 2009 in the reader’s poll “Best of the Fox”.
Sergio’s Cantina serves lunch and dinner seven days of the week. The menu features a large assortment of classic Mexican dishes: tacos, burritos, fajitas, enchiladas and much more. Many of the entrees are created from original family recipes, including deep fried quesadillas. A specially priced lunch menu is available, as well as “light” selections. The little ones have their own menu, too, including a couple of American options – just in case they are unsure about trying a taco! They’ll really enjoy specialty kiddie drinks served in a color changing cup! You can read the entire Sergio’s menu here.
A lot of thought and planning has resulted in a warm dining room – with a bit of a Mexican beach atmosphere. It has tiled floors, ‘stucco’ walls and Spanish clay tiles topping off the kitchen window which is designed to resemble a food stand on the beach. Faux windows give you a view of a tranquil beach, while the actual windows overlook the real world of First Street (Route 31). The bar is covered in a mosaic of crushed hand-painted tiles and overlooks State Street. Throughout the warmer months, the patio is a popular spot for food and drinks and a hotspot to hang out at during Geneva’s popular festivals.
Speaking of the bar, don’t forget to try one of the many flavored Margaritas or Mojitos at Sergio’s Cantina. The refreshing Margaritas are made daily with fresh squeezed limes! Homemade Sangria is also a specialty drink. During the weekend, the bar is open until 2 am and live entertainment is often featured. And every Tuesday and Thursday, house and fruit Margaritas are half-price.
Reservations are accepted (call 630-845-9200) and carryout and catering are offered. Why not book a private party at Sergio’s? A DJ, Salsa lessons, buffets and drink packages are available! You can celebrate without the cooking, cleaning or clean-up – nothing but fun. Whether you are meeting co-workers for lunch, taking the family to dinner or hanging with friends later on, Sergio’s Cantina is the spot to stop at!
