Loyal customer for 30+ years. I now live an hour away but well worth the drive to get the best Mexican food around. The frozen strawberry margarita's are awesome too!

If you haven't been to La Cabana Mexican Cafe in Aurora, IL, you're missing a bet. The food is delicious, the portions are large, the staff is friendly, the service is fast, and the price is right. Stop by sometime soon. You won't be disappointed. I rate it five stars.

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
