This is our #1 favorite restaurant. Worth the drive. Why? The food is way beyond delicious. Unbelievably tasty flavors. I cannot emphasize this enough.

This place isn't fancy but it has some of the best carne asada anywhere. It is one of my favorite meals. The flavor of the meat when it is wrapped in a taco shell with the cabbage is outstanding. The beans are also delicious. Another...More

We have been eating at Mabel's for over 25 years. They serve delicious, non-commercial Mexican food. Mabel created the recipes herself. The locals know and love this place! Atmosphere is not great, so don't expect much there, but the food makes up for it!

quaint, small quiet atmosphere featuring home-cooked Mexican dishes. Owner usually waits on tables. You must bring your own alcoholic beverages

Decided to try Mabel's based on positive reviews. Very good choice and close to highway. Does not look like much from the outside but worth going to this place.

Give them a call. I really don't remember if there were gluten-free options. 406-628-2283 is the number.
