Don't let the name of the restaurant confuse you.On first visit I expected to see typical Mexican food restaurant like Taco bell.However after trying delicious enchiladas and steaks I realized that I do not need to look for another place around. The selection of drinks in the bar is pretty decent. There is a nice fire pit next to restaurant... More

During our weekend stay in Windham our group of 5 stopped by Rock’n Mexicana for dinner. We were seated right away. The servers were all incredibly friendly and food service was quick (drinks were a little slow). This seems like one of the livelier joints in the village of Windham. Our dishes were all above average and the drinks were... More

The resturant was alright, not the best Mexican atmosphere, and the waitstaff were subpar, but the food was relatively good and I would recommend it, but maybe only go there once. I went for the convenience of it being right at the hotel.

Staff was friendly and the food was excellent. Selection of margaritas was a hit for my partner and I (Mistletoe margarita recommended!)

Food is very salty, ok, average but its a warm cozy spot. Convenient location at the Wyndham Inn. Service is a bit slow but you are upstate so this is normal.

This was the 1st place we ate at in Windham & we both enjoyed it very much. We sat at the bar & enjoyed the bartender as much as the food. He was very nice, readily offered suggestions when we asked, & was very attentive. My husband & I both enjoyed our food & there was little left at the... More

Enjoyed the atmosphere of this cozy restaurant, not your typical "Mexican style" . Food was good , service was a little hectic with one waitstaff, but friendly manager came out to assist. We happened to be there on Taco Tuesday, tacos for 1$ . Fireplace in the center & a fire pit outside made it even more enjoyable. Highly recommend... More

How can a Mexican restaurant get a taco wrong? The insipid salsa and bland chips were the first indication of a meal gone bad.

Rock'n Mexicana is a favorite with Windham guests and area residents alike. Creative cuisine with a zest of Mexico makes this dining experience fun and filling. It's our favorite north of the border watering hole for signature margaritas and a great selection of beer. Enjoy weekly specials, original cocktails, and a family friendly atmosphere with plenty of options for everyone.
