Good food

We stopped in at the La Cabana for a late dinner, having just gotten into town. The staff was accommodating, as we were road worn and indecesive. The food was very good, the restaurant was clean the service was good. The parking in Helen, is horrible...that's just the way things are.

Very nice atmosphere and great Mexican Style food. The portions are large and taste is fabulous. Sit outside if the weather is nice. That is what we did. The wait staff was very attentive and kept up with our needs very well.

This place is great! The food seems to be more authentic than most Mexican restaurants. If you go (and like spicy food), get the Camarones a la Diabla...you won't regret it

We are so blessed to have great folks like the Valadez family living and working in our community. Their work ethic and customer service are exemplary as evidenced by their success in the restaurant business for decades.

It was pretty good. We do love Mexican food, so we are a little picky. We thought the chicken was excellent (in burrito) and the taco was fine. The cheese enchilada was OK, but the sauce on it wasn't great. The salsa was fine. The service was fine. The combination plates did not come with rice or beans and cost... More

We were in Helen for Octoberfest. We stopped at this restaurant as it was right in front of our hotel. What a pleasant surprise! The food was all extremely fresh. Chips and queso cheese were awesome. Great staff, very attentive. Order the Twin Burritos....they are to die for! We ended up eating here three times during our visit as the... More

I like to think I know my Mexican food. My family and I eat it quite frequently. This is a nice Mexican restaurant in Helen, GA. The food was good quality, and the wait staff was friendly and accommodating. There was an error in my order, and I wasn't sure if it was their fault or my fault, but they... More

Service was fine. That's it. The dinning room is simply too small. Burritos and quesadillas were small. Ground beef was unseasoned- bland.
