If I lived on the border of Texas and Mexico, I'd probably be snobbier and less enthusiastic about this place, but I grew up in Michigan so F it! They are open later than I would ever even need Del Taco and that includes the bar. Huge tequila menu and wonderful fresh squeezed margs.
Walk in and immediately you smell the sweet earthy smoke of their famous fresh made tortillas. Salsa on the table and the fresh fried chips are like nothing you've ever had, even though you've been to a hundred Mex places before. Trust me!
Every dish on the menu is Tex-Mex heaven. I've been there a hundred times so I speak with authority. Interesting items like Jicima Salad, Black Bean Empanadas and fresh Sopes make this my favorite unassuming Mexican restaurant.

I've been coming to La Cabana for 30 years now and it is still one of my favs. The back patio is where it's at. Start off with a Cadillac Margarita then order away, everything is delish. If you want a hearty meal that you will have to get a doggie bag for...order the Chile Colorado. If you wanna go light, try a taco or enchilada a la carte.La Cabana is always a winning choice!

I love going to La Cabana. There food is so good that I want to eat there almost every day. I love Mexican food and have tried so many different Mexican restaurants. I always come back to La Cabana because I know the food is consistently good. The Margaritas are yummy also.

I have tried this place several times and have been disappointed in my food each time, with a new menu item tried each time. Really mediocre food.
They do have a large selection of tequilas and if you just want to go out for margaritas this place isn't a bad choice.

I ordered a combination plate, for delivery. I said no cheese, it had cheese. I said flour tortillas, they gave me corn. The beans were cold, the rice was dry, the tamal, though not greasy, was loaded with fat and discolored, and had no sauce over it. The tortillas were cold, hard and chewey, and the chips rubbery.
I expect better than this, after paying $18 with the tip.
The only pro was that the delivery man was personable and nice looking.
I will not order delivery from them again, and I don't recommend them. Dan

We made the mistake of going twice with family and couldn't back out! This place has the worst Mexican food EVER!! No cilantro in anything, the guacamole has like mayonnaise and other unfamiliar seasonings or chemicals added. It made me desperately wish for Taco Bell. It was very crowded and especially noisy with super bad guitar playing in background. Just awful and worst of all, I knew it!! You can somewhat judge a place by their chips and salsa. Did I mention the COLD stale chips?? Margaritas taste like old bottled syrup stuff. I don't get why this place is popular??? Oh... Venice that's why!!! I'LL NEVER GO BACK AGAIN!

I was taken here on a date and was pleasantly surprised. The place does not look so pretty from the outside, but once you walk in you get warmly greeted by the ladies at the door. We went on a Tuesday night and it seemed pretty crowded like it was the weekend. We got seated right away in a very big roomy booth. The place has a very cozy ambience and has a lot of Mexican charm. The servers are very professional and attentive. I was said to hear that they only served Fajitas during the weekend. I rarely get to go to a Mexican restaurant, and so having Fajitas would have been such a big treat for me. That is something they should think about serving ALL the time. My margarita was okay, nothing too great. Honestly got the worst headache the next morning but that may have to do with the fact that I do not drink often. However, I have tasted way better margaritas elsewhere. They do have a really nice menu with very authentic Mexican dishes like enchiladas, ceviche, albondigas, burritos, and quesadillas. I went with the El Verde burrito with chicken. When I got my dish it was huge and it came with a lot of rice which I love. It was strange how it came with fresh tomatoes inside the burrito, but hence you can tell it was freshly made. I ate only half of my burrito and took the rest home. Filled me up quick. Oh and you can see the lovely Senora making fresh tortillas within view from where we were sitting. That was very cool. Our food was served right away. I would definitely come here again, but it would be on a weekend so I can try out their Fajitas!!!!
