“Expected great,just average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

We had been told that Gabby's Cafe was a GREAT Mexican restaurant. We found the food pleasant, but on the bland side....and overpriced. The exception was the guacamole at the table. It was definitely a novelty and great guacamole but expensive. We also found the service efficient but lacking in the warmth of most Latin establishments. My suggestions...Lower the prices and really welcome your customers!

“Good Mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We were lucky to arrive just before busy time, as the restaurant filled up quickly. We were seated right away. Our waitress took our drink orders, gave us chips and a really tasty salsa; and gave us time to decide on our meals.
My husband ordered the Chicken Enchiladas Mole. He is a fan of mole, and he said it was really good. I also had one of my favorites, Chilies Relanos. I had one stuffed with ground beef and the stuffed with cheese. It was dipped in a cornmeal batter before cooking, and topped with a light red sauce. Both dinners came rice and great refried black beans and a little salad. The dinner portions were quite large, so we didn't have room for desert. The prices are a little higher than moderate, but whole experience was great.

“A Real Crowd Pleaser”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We love Gabby's food and the people working there. They area able to accommodate larger groups, providing efficient service and excellent Mexican food/drink. Try the pineapple infused tequila or any of the Mexican beers and cocktails. It's a must have any time we're in the area. Close to Honor's Haven Hotel, near Sam's Point & Minnewaska.

Food, lots of authentic, delicious food. Very Reasonably priced, too. Family run, center of town with outside dining, across the street from the world renowned Shadowland Theatre

“Authentic Mexican food in the Catskills”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

Try any of the vegetarian dishes. I have never been disappointed. Go early on Saturdays, the bar gets in the way of quiet dining.
