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.

We didn't dine here but we had a starter and tequila shots. I can only tell you that the General Manager is an awesome guy and he is well-versed with his knowledge of tequila. It's a great place to warm your blood after a night of walking in the cold mountain air.

my husband, little sister, her friend and I attended the Helen, GA location for my birthday weekend on Aug. 2, 2013. I drove 1 1/2 hours to go tubing and dinner afterward, and we chose La Cabana because I had previously visited another location in Dillard, GA & the service there was amazing so I thought 'what a great thing...

Have a choice of inside or outside eating. If you choose outside be ready to battle flies. Inside is sort of stuffy due to small and open kitchen. Due to outside tables the front door is always being open, which does not help the ac system do its job. Food and service were good. We were there on a Friday... More
