Decent food

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.

My wife and I have eaten at La Cabana several times over the past few years and found that their consistency always brings us back. From tacos to tostadas, enchiladas to chips and salsa, this is one of the best in Aurora. The wait staff is always prompt and friendly, this makes the experience even more enjoyable. If you are...

Our favorite for Mexican. We frequent this family owned restaurant every month or two as they always have the freshest tasting Mexican food. Their chips and salsa are great, very tasty and spicy. The servers are excellent, very attentive to our needs and the food arrives very quickly, even with large family groups. I always leave full and satisfied. The... More

This is a nice place, with pleasant staff, tucked away in a quiet neighborhood. It's neither snooty or frumpy, and the staff has always been most pleasant. You can get your basic Mexican favorites, from the big combo platters to the more subtle stews, and everything I've tried here was great. Not sure what it means, but all the staff... More
