We (3 of us) have been here twice and found everything to be top notch. The salsa is the freshest tasting I have had anywhere and food presentation and service we're also five star. I have no reason to eat anywhere else in Manteo after trying this place.

The food is plentiful and tastes good. The staff is always very welcoming and friendly. The steak quesidilla (sp?) is my favorite.

Our young waitress was as friendly as can be when the three of us stopped for dinner at 6pm on a Saturday. The salsa she delivered to the table was freshly made. Our chili order had a nice twist to it, as did our taco salad, pupusas, and carne asada. All tasted more like homemade and less like standard restaurant... More

Great place for Great Mexican food on the Outer Banks. Small little tucked in the corner of a strip group of stores, this place never dissapoints. Right in Manteo.

My boyfriend & I live here locally in Manteo. We eat at this restaurant on average twice a month if not more in the off season. We both always enjoy our meals. The salsa is fresh & the queso is great too! I haven't had anything I didn't like, although the beans & rice are in my opinion a little... More

I used to be a local and this was one of my favorite places. The food is great and so are the prices. Love the chicken picatta.

I eat lunch here about three or four times a month. Food is great, prices are very reasonable. Whether your a visitor or local, you should check out La Cabana.
