Fabulous Mexican food

I usually order the chicken enchiladas with salsa verde, black beans and rice because it's so good I just can't bring myself to order anything else. But my husband is more adventurous and has tasted most everything on the menu. He loved it all. The homemade tortilla chips and salsa to start are... read more

Husband and I have dined here for over 15 years, and though we no longer live nearby, we still come here whenever we're in town. La Cabanita is usually packed and noisy. They won't win any awards for decor, but the food is consistently outstanding. They expanded the restaurant several years ago and added a full bar, so beer and... More

The restaurant I want to visit when in LA area. Love the service and the food, even the mole (not really a sauce I like). I could eat there every week and not be bored.

I was there with my family last weekend. Since it was Friday and us Catholics cannot consume meat on this day (only until Easter passes), we thought, of course there will be something on the menu with seafood! Wrong. They did not have an entree with say shrimp or fish at the very least. We were disappointed. Well, guess what... More

I have been going to this restaurant for years with both family and friends. It is always a favorite. The menu has a wide range of tasty dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I love the salsas and the mole is great too. The service is friendly and prompt. We've even had a party in the back room, which was... More

Here is authentic Mexican food that is not the same ol thing. There are a variety of stuffed pepper and seafood dishes along with other traditional favorites. This place is always busy, but wait times are rarely more than a half hour for a table, and you can have appetizers and drinks at the full service bar while you wait.... More

Celebrated my birthday here last night with family. Had the classic chili relleno dinner and margarita. Very good. Was seated in the bar area with only two other tables filled - nice and quiet. The restaurant sent a complementary birthday flan with a candle - it was wonderful! Perfect actually. Next time I'll try the enchiladas and hope they are... More

Came here with family on a Friday nite. There was a long wait. Popular places have that! Once seated we were waited on after a few minutes. I had a taco meal, that was ok, but the meat was quite dry. I tried a taste of some of the other dishes at the table and found them to be authentic... More

Have been here for breakfast and dinner, both of which were wonderful. Great selection of true Mexican specialties for breakfast. The mole is some of the best. I especially love the chilies en nowadays.
