You can not beat La Cabanita for quality food at a reasonable price. Not to mention great margaritas! The atmosphere is bright and casual and the mood is definitely festive and it can be noisy, especially on a weekend night, but the service is usually quick and always friendly. The tacos come on homemade corn tortillas, which are excellent. I... More

My partner and I brought our friend here for dinner. We were happy about wide bar, the excellent staff, and every bite of guacamole we ate. My vegetarian enchiladas were excellent, as was the salsa. I wish we had had another day so that we could have managed to squeeze in another dinner here.

We always come here for a dinner when in town visiting friends. The Margarita was bland. Chips and salsa were great. My beef fahita dish was excellent but the others enchiladas were a bit bland and the food was lukewarm. Service was very good with a smile. A nice family place. The prices have gone up, so it's now mid... More

Found this place on Trip Advisor today. Trip Advisor works! Great little spot serves authentic south of the border food. It's really great. Visiting from Atlanta, I'll be back and make it a point to come here. My family who lives 15 minutes away had never even heard of this place. Now they will be regulars. Get there. Service is...

I had read that La Cabanita's Caldo de Pollo is muy excellente so decided to try it on this rainy day when I found myself stuck in town due to a cancelled appointment. I arrived about 1:30 p.m. and the place was packed with patrons waiting to be seated. It took about 20 minutes and I landed a coveted window... More

We've been eating here for 25 years. It's gone from a very small, family place to something larger and more established (they will soon be open on Sundays). The chips and salsas are still good. And I've rarely strayed from my favorite - one each of taco norteno, taco arrachero and taco picadillo. And the tortilla is what makes them... More

I love this place. It started with the tacos then the enchiladas and the mole is outstanding, the tortillas are handmade, thick and delicious. I pretty much just like everything on the menu.

Never mind that it is in the tiny suburb of Montrose. Nor that its décor is not "Architectural Digest" perfect. La Cabanita has truly authentic Mexican ... not cooking ... but Cuisine. From the handling of the Masa, to the absolutely "spot on" Mole sauces, to the excellent drinks and tequilas, even the most experienced "fan and follower" of such... More
