Restaurant is right on the Fox River. Nicely decorated. Definitely family-oriented, no music, nothing fun about it. Lots of church people gather there on Sundays. Food is typical American-Mexican food--what you'd get in any cheap Mexican restaurant in the Chicago suburbs. Also, the food is good for cheap eats, but Not great. However, the Sangria is Excellent and the Staff... More

Food was under seasoned and bland. Prices not worth the food that we had. Chips were stale and salsa just ok. There are so many Mexican food restaurants in Aurora that are much better than this one. So sad because it used to be really good.

La Cabana is our go-to lunch restaurant. We love their combo choices, as well as their crabmeat enchiladas. Last time there, I was able to have a Margherita. Very tasty, just the right size for lunch and reasonably priced.

One of our local favorites, this place has consistently good food. I have never had anything here that I didn't like. I particularly like their pina coladas . They are large and very reasonably priced. Reason enough to check out the restaurant!

Several friends always want to go here when they visit and we always enjoy it. The Mexican menu has good food and good drinks. The staff is friendly and authentic. It is usually not crowded. This restaurant is not on the beaten path but worth going out of your way to find - right next to the Fox River, but... More

La Cabana serves decent Mexican food. It is not the best in the area but still holds it's own. I especially like their salsa. Our food in general was a little on the bland side except for the rice. The rice was very flavorful. The restaurant is very neat and clean and the service was good.

I've been eating here for 20 + years and still love it. The fresh chips and salsa are fantastic and they let you eat all you want. The owner is almost always on site and very nice. The place is clean and the food is great.

Always love eating from here. It's one thing I crave! Love the chips and salsa, and the chicken flautas are great, add a Pina Colada and the trip will be golden

You kind of have to know where La Cabana is situated (south of downtown Aurora) in order to find it, but this place is worth finding. Excellent tortilla chips with homemade salsa. Friendly and personable waitstaff. The menu has a fair amount of variety, pretty much all good. The interior is cheerful, almost festive, but not loud. You will generally... More
