“Good Mexican -- and more!”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

During our trip to Manteo, we were looking for a good and inexpensive place for dinner. A local directed us to La Cabana and we were very pleased!

Not only is their Mexican food quite good and fresh (starting with the amazing salsa), but they also have a nice selection of seafood dishes if you aren't interested in Mexican. That's not to say that you should avoid the Mexican dishes! I had shrimp enchiladas and they were wonderful! My wife had shrimp fajitas and enjoyed those too.

The prices were very reasonable and the service was excellent. Everyone in our family enjoyed La Cabana and we would recommend it!

“Best Latin Food in 50+ miles.”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

The food is amazing, the environment is comfortable and not cluttered, and the service is very good. The restaurant presents a variety of Latin foods and seafood that have amazing flavor and do not need to be over decorated. The flavorful dishes are wonderful as they are. Much of the menu can be even modified for picky eaters and vegetarians. Open your taste buds and your senses for a wonderful meal that will not burn a hole in your pocket.
Plus you can get to challenge The Giant Mixed Grilled Burrito. A 3.5-ish pound burrito stuffed with grilled steak, grilled chicken, grilled peppers, and grilled onions, rice and refried beans topped with enchilada and cheese sauce. Amazing flavors from the first to the last bite.
Their ever changing specials for lunch and dinner will always have something new to try.

“Unexpectedly good considering its location”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

We were on a 9 day motorcycle trip and had to find a laundromat, which we did, right by this restuarant. While on the dryer cycle, we decided to go on and maybe order a snack, since it looked a little sketchy from the outside. What a pleasant suprise! Great mexican food and a cute atmosphere. I ordered the flounder tacos which were so fresh and tasty. They were served with good refried beans, and rice and pico de gallo. My hubby ordered the pork chimichanga on special which was made with very flavorful, moist pork. We also ordered the homemade guacomole which was very good. Don't pass this place up based upon location. Lunch for two was $26, can't beat it. Now that I am home, I wish I could eat some today....
