Surprisingly good food!

3rd visit in two months and once again I was impressed. Margaritas excellent. Attentive staff (3-4 employees). Family run. This border restaurant has not forgotten their culture & recipes. Food was excellent (tamales, rellenos, guacamole). Nothing "commercial" about this restaurant. The service... read more

THEE FRESHEST, MOST DELICIOUS NATURAL HOMEMADE SALSA EVER!!! Not only was the food good but the staff was delightful. Not only do you leave with a full and satisfied belly you come back for more with warm hospitality. Just make sure certain chefs are there for the best experience. This is a review from visiting there in 2010.

This is one of my favorite local spots for lunch. They have several combo choices so you taste a little bit of everything. The salsa is a bit spicy and they serve it with Mexican limes so you can cool the heat. On my most recent visit, the owner let me know they had just made the tamales. It was... More

I grew up eating Carne con Chile here and it's delicious. Unfortunately though, when I came back recently, I came back knowing of some food sensitivities to flour and they use it in their sauce (the last time I checked) so make sure to ask. Last time I went I had steak and shrimp and also the tamales.

I always say, "If the beans and tortillas are great, everything else will be good, too". La Cabaña not only has the tastiest and greatest variety of authentic Mexican food, but you can eat it acconpanied with a beer or Margarita. This is the real way to eat Mexican food.

With the use of Tripadvisor found this good Mexican restaurant in a city of many. Was there for lunch and had the chile relleno and carne asada burrito combo plate. All was good as was my friend's beef tacos. Prices were good.

Stale chips from a bag started the meal. The servers were unable to communicate in English or Spanish what was available.

Well this is Mexico and the food is awesome! The crane asada is off the chain. They don't know English so I hope you know at least a little Spanish... And try the margarita, it has a kick!
