Few people were in the dingy tattered venue. The server seemed out of sorts and not very cooperative. One in our party discussed a name brand of soda she wished to order. He said that it was not available despite the fact that it clearly was visible in the soda cooler. The food arrived with little fan fare. Its flavor... More

We came here last year and the food was wonderful... Today I'm very disappointed 😞 the salsa that came with the chips was bland, my chimichanga wasn't fried when it arrived. I sent it back and it did come back fried, but was also very bland. I eat Mexican food for the flavor and there was none. The rice was... More

Very good food. We eat at mexican restaurants often, and are often disappointed. However, La Cabana was a pleasant surprise. The margaritas were good too.

Margaritas are great, and I had the tilapia la mango and it was also great. Love their salsa. My neice said the the tamales were good also.

I've visited La Cabana several times in recent years while visiting family in Grand Island. I live in Texas and am well-versed in not just typical cheesy tex-mex food, but also lots of regional/authentic Mexican dishes. La Cabana offers a good mix of both -- comforting items with all the cheese and flavor you might want, as well as slightly... More

We passed 3 other Mexican restaurants on the walk to this restaurant. Good walk, but very unimpressed. At 5:15 on a Sat. night, we were the only ones there. The restaurant itself was very plain, and in need of some repairs. (The booth we chose by the window for a little natural light had 2 huge indentations in the seats.)... More

Was really good food. The service was good as well, they were good about refilling drinks and clearing the plates. Am glad that we found a sit down Mexican restaurant were we can enjoy the food. They even had a hot dog on the menu for our 3 yr old.

We were staying in Grand Island for the night and wanted Mexican food. I had seen this place a few times before so we decided to try it. It was an excellent choice! The weather was crappy so we were the only ones in the place. They seated us and brought us chips and salsa. The salsa was one of... More
