Everyone knows that Pittsburgh has a wide variety of awesome bars and restaurants to choose from. One such hotspot is the Round Corner Cantina on Butler Street in Pittsburgh’s booming Lawrenceville neighborhood. If you’re looking for a hip spot to enjoy plenty of festive Mexican fare, including pitchers of margaritas and buckets of beer, the Round Corner Cantina is absolutely a must-try.

The Food

Whether you’re looking for delicious appetizers to pair with drinks, or a hearty meal, there’s something for everyone here. Vegetarians and vegans can enjoy a wide selection of apps and entrées, including to-die-for mole, fried tofu, and the Flying Saucer “taco” salad.

For the more carnivorous Pittsburgher, Round Corner has you covered, too. You might try yummy carnitas, 12-hour brisket, or even mahi mahi.

If you’re like most Pittsburghers and are constantly scouting out new brunch spots, look no further than Round Corner. Enjoy a spicy bloody Mary or a rejuvenating lavender lemonade with your choice of muy delicioso breakfast hash, burritos, tacos, and more.

The Drinks

What meal would be complete without a refreshing drink? Choose from a large selection of domestic and imported beers, either by the bottle or the bucket. Or, if you’re feeling spicy, try a Round Corner signature drink like the Feugo Flaca, made with Oro de Oaxaca Mezcal, charred jalapeño, and lime. You’ll also find a full menu of margaritas, micheladas, and wines.

The Atmosphere

There’s nothing boring about the Round Corner Cantina. It’s fun, hip atmosphere makes this cantina a popular spot for people of all ages, especially on a warm, sunny Sunday afternoon. If you want to kick your party up a notch, you can even rent their 12-person chalet and invite a group of friends to eat, drink, and be merry!


Take a load off during the week at the Round Corner Cantina 5pm-7pm happy hour, and enjoy daily specials like 2 for $6 “gringo” tacos for Taco Tuesday, or $5 margaritas from 11am to 5pm every Friday.
