We had a terrific meal yesterday, and we were so happy we had to come back tonight after a full day at Mammoth Cave. Both meals were excellent. The service was swift, pleasant and correct in all ways. The carnitas, in two versions, was some of the best pork we have ever had. They don't use a lot of hot... More

Cave City is small so there isn't a lot of variety in restaurants, but boy, is this one a gem. The corn tortillas are superb and nothing is overdone (overly cheesy, etc.). I had the vegetarian enchiladas and they were magnificent, especially the mushroom selection. Such a wonderfully rich, authentic wild mushroom flavor (the others were spinach, beans, and potato)....

The service is fast, delicious, and a bargain. I have rarely seen the service staff move and assist with such a fervor. Check the table for a 10% off coupon scan.

The service was good, but the food was kind of bland. My chicken quesadilla didn't seem to have much seasoning, and the tortilla was really greasy, as though it had been fried rather than grilled. My husband got an enchilada, and had similar experience. Just not very spicy.

Practice your lingua with real life speakers! Drink up, go outside, the only things missing are either the dinosaurs or the mariachi band👺

We visited Cave City on our south-bound portion of a road trip, and stayed overnight. Our dinner choices were limited; Cave City is not large, and since we're not really the Cracker Barrel type (and didn't feel like fast food), we went to El Mazatlan - without even knowing that Cave City is (or perhaps was, by the time you...

Best steak tacos ever. Free chips and salsa are pretty good. We ate on a Friday night, but they have great mid-week happy hour specials.
