Would have been better off at Taco Bell. Ordered an enchilada and chalupa for me and my boyfriend to share because we were not that hungry. The beef tasted like dog food. The guacamole at the top of the "chalupa" was like baby vomit. We were so hungry that we pouredthe watered down salsa all over the rice and beans... More

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.

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.
