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.

The location in the old outlet center was fairly clean and the overall food was okay, mediocre service. However the Twin Burritos were the best burrito I've ever had.

How can you mess up nachos?? The meat was unseasoned hamburger, some kind of white slimey cheese we could not identify. The guacamole was mass produced and tasteless. The place looks old and dirty, does not look like touch up paint or deep clean.... They really should. The service was okay, but the man who rang us up was in... More

We ate at La Cabana Express on a Monday afternoon about 3:00. It was a slow time of day. The restaurant is very small but big on the taste. We were very surprised by how good everything was. The salsa is homemade and delicious. The steak in our soft shells was very tasty. Our drink of choice was pina colada.... More

The basic fare is typical Mexican cuisine. One minor point was that we ordered an appetizer and a main course which were served together. We sat outside; the terrace was a bit dirty. Three waitresses continually queried us if everything was to our liking. A bit overkill...

Ordered take out. They got it wrong and what I did get was just average at best beans had no flavor and rice was over done. The California burrito was covered in this nasty brown sauce but the stuff inside was good.
