Lava Cantina now open in Perkins Rowe

A new Mexican restaurant that features live music is now open in Perkins Rowe.

Lava Cantina opened Thursday in the space behind California Pizza Kitchen. The restaurant has a rock-and-roll-themed menu and décor, with dishes such as “Fab Four enchiladas” and “Light My Fire fajitas.”

Plans are for Lava Cantina to have live music Thursday through Saturday nights. The restaurant will be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to midnight Sunday-Wednesday and from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Thursday-Saturday. Lava Cantina will also feature 10 draft beers on tap and fresh made margaritas made with specialty tequilas.

Lava Cantina, which is going into a space that has been empty since the Grill Room closed several years ago, was the second restaurant to open in Perkins Rowe Thursday. VooDoo BBQ & Grill opened a location next to the movie theater.
