One of my favorite Mexican restaurants! Plenty of TVs to show many games. Cheese dip is really good. Service is friendly

I went in for lunch this week and ordered Huevos rancheros. If you look at the photos you will see what I was served. 2 fried eggs, dry rice and some pretty bad beans. I will admit I ordered guacamole and it was good, but...More

Our server was absolutely great, but the food was gross. The ground beef in my enchilada was very pink. The Mexican rice was really, really dry. The chili relleno was okay. This wasn't authentic Mexican (which is rare around here) but it wasn't even Tex-Mex...More

Terrible service, the food took way too long to come, was so spicy was bare edible. The credit card machine was broken but the host forgot to tell us. Bad service, bad food.... not a good meal.

La Cava is a festive restaurant with great music, good food, and friendly service. We love the warm chips with salsa, and their seafood entrees. Great place to go with family or friends. Close to shopping.

Bring your appetite, especially if you order the fajitas. If you're not as hungry, the restaurant is pleased to split an order so you don't have to miss out on this tasty entree.

I was traveling solo and seated in an area that didn't seem to have been assigned a waitress. Called this to the attention of the host after several minutes. Got immediate service and was rewarded with an extra margarita and extra toppings on my fajita.

The location and facility is very nice. However, the food isn't even what I'd consider Tex-Mex, since it is very bland. If you're ok with a completely Iowa version of Mexican, and you're more interested in drinks and a slightly more upscale atmosphere, then this...More

We were recommended to this restaurant by a local. Unfortunately, the waitress/server really managed to ruin the evening. Menus literally thrown down on the table, orders having to be repeated and requests ignored eg a request for a well done burger resulted in a rare...More
