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.

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.

Had a great time. Brandon was a joy to meet and gave wonderful service. Enjoyed the food very much, although one dish was a little salty but very tasty. Would highly recommend this restaurant to our vegetarian friends.

In downtown but yet quiet, I loved this restaurant and its food. Since it was recommended, I wanted to give La Cabana a try. Everything I had was well prepared and very tasty. Lots of food at a great price. I will definitely eat there again. Customer service was great.

We tried this place out because it was right out of our hotel front door and we wanted something different than the german cuisine. We were very happy with the food, drinks, and service. The pollo fundido was very very good. Prices are about right and the outdoor seating is great.
