Casual atmosphere. Great for families or date night. Went on Thur with 6 people and had to wait about 30 minutes. Not much seating available for groups of 5 or more. No waiting for smaller groups. Worth the wait. The margaritas were good. The cheese dip with seasoned ground beef makes a great appetizer. There salsa is amazing too. No... More

Our family (4 adults and a toddler) went for Sunday dinner. The place was crowded - but the staff took very good care of us, the food was above average, and we were able to have a relaxed meal together. The drinks were good and fairly priced. We've been here before - and we will be back.

My favorite Valparaiso Mexican restaurant and obviously a favorite with others as well. It's always crowded on Fridays and weekends. The menu is large and diverse. The dining room is very pleasant and the service is great.

This restaurant has great food and fast service. The restrooms are very clean and new. I can't recommend this place more! Pork tacos are very good, great portions and ingredients.

First time in Valparaiso and we decided to try a local Mexican restaurant. It was just about dinner time (we like to get started between 4:30 and 5:00 to beat the crowds) and after driving by gave La Cabana a shot. We were not disappointed. Found a round table in the cozy bar area (three tables total plus eight or... More

I used to love this restaurant. The food is good and the prices are good but there was one night they messed up my order and when I told the server he seemed mad that I asked for it to be made correctly. The meal was supposed to be a burrito with chicken and shrimp but they mistakenly put beef... More

We have visited several times and each time the service is excellent and food outstanding. Most times we have visited are during lunch, so there is usually no wait to be seated. Evening dining is much busier. Chips and salsa are promptly brought to the table. Typically there is a luncheon special which is around $6.00 My favorite on the... More
