We dropped-in on a late Saturday afternoon for some take-out. It was ready in 15 minutes, and was worth waiting-for. Everything was fresh. The flour tortillas were very soft and moist. The interior and exterior here are very plain, but don’t be fooled: the food...More

When you walk in and most of the clientele are Hispanics, you know you have found a great spot. And first impressions held true; great service, value and menu. Definitely a must if you desire great Tex Mex food.

Carnitas are some of the best I've had. Beers are huge and they have Modello on tap. Staff is super friendly and helpful.

I liked La Cabinita. I had a green chilli burrito (small) and it was very good. Next time I will try something a little more adventurous. The rest of the menu looks good.

You aren't going to find Texas style Queso anywhere but Texas. Give them a $10 bill so they can buy a brick of Velveeta and can of Rotel chiles, grate a clove or two of garlic and thin a bit with cream and it's all good.
