Great food, cheap drinks!

One of our local favorites, this place has consistently good food. I have never had anything here that I didn't like. I particularly like their pina coladas . They are large and very reasonably priced. Reason enough to check out the restaurant!

La Cabana is our go-to lunch restaurant. We love their combo choices, as well as their crabmeat enchiladas. Last time there, I was able to have a Margherita. Very tasty, just the right size for lunch and reasonably priced.

Several friends always want to go here when they visit and we always enjoy it. The Mexican menu has good food and good drinks. The staff is friendly and authentic. It is usually not crowded. This restaurant is not on the beaten path but worth going out of your way to find - right next to the Fox River, but... More

La Cabana serves decent Mexican food. It is not the best in the area but still holds it's own. I especially like their salsa. Our food in general was a little on the bland side except for the rice. The rice was very flavorful. The restaurant is very neat and clean and the service was good.

I've been eating here for 20 + years and still love it. The fresh chips and salsa are fantastic and they let you eat all you want. The owner is almost always on site and very nice. The place is clean and the food is great.

Always love eating from here. It's one thing I crave! Love the chips and salsa, and the chicken flautas are great, add a Pina Colada and the trip will be golden

You kind of have to know where La Cabana is situated (south of downtown Aurora) in order to find it, but this place is worth finding. Excellent tortilla chips with homemade salsa. Friendly and personable waitstaff. The menu has a fair amount of variety, pretty much all good. The interior is cheerful, almost festive, but not loud. You will generally... More

Honestly the WORST! The worst Margarita we have ever had, bad chips and salsa, overpriced and tasteless guacamole, which was dumped on a plastic plate, no chips or anything to accompany for $9, The meal was just as bad, just because everything is covered in bland generic cheese and sauce does not make it in any way good Mexican food....

The restaurant sits across the street from the Fox River. You pretty much have your choice where to sit here. We prefer sitting at the windows so we can watch the river. It is a quaint atmosphere. As you sit down you are served chips and salsa. My husband swears by Enchilada de colores or Combination #1. Go ahead.. anything... More

Margarita's are great and so is the view along the river. Service is also great. Food can have a little to much cheese on it but if you like cheese then this is the place.
