Welcome to Driftwood Cantina! We are so excited to start this new venture as the freshest Mexican Restaurant in Raleigh. We are proud to serve delicious meals with fresh, quality ingredients every day. Our tortillas are handmade daily and we source our food as locally as possible.

Our heart and soul is delivering amazing food to accompany an equally amazing experience. Our guests are treated as family at Driftwood Cantina. As a locally-owned restaurant, you’ll see our owners walking around, greeting you at the door, cooking your food, and making sure you have a great time.

Our newly renovated interior offers a beachy atmosphere with bright colors, unique artwork, and fun decor. Whether you like to sit at the bar, in the dining room, or out on our beautiful patio, you will feel like you’re on vacation when you step into Driftwood Cantina. We can’t wait to serve you!
