Cadillac Cantina coming soon to Hoboken (old Oddfellow’s spot)
As Hoboken411 told you over six months ago, that Oddfellow’s was closing and becoming a “Tex Mex” place. Our new downtown neighbor will be Cadillac Cantina.
It appears that they will be focusing a lot on their drink menu, as they’re getting excited about tequila as well as “specialty margaritas” such as “Island Coconut” and “Fresh Watermelon.”
Opening up a bar / restaurant in Hoboken is nothing new. And regardless of what kind of hype, buzz, or trendy catch-phrases a business uses, it is still just another “bar restaurant.” Cynical people will not get swept up by marketing or PR, they will openly judge a place on core metrics: Quality, taste, value and service. Only after those have been met is it worth it to talk about gimmicky drinks or fanfare. A wacky or creative menu? Great! But it’s pointless if the food sucks, the service blows, and it’s expensive to boot.
So let’s hope the folks at Cadillac Cantina cover all their bases and remain a viable long-term restaurant option after the open up later this summer.
Good luck, Cadillac Cantina!
