I didn't think it was possible to get Mexican food, especially enchiladas wrong, well, I was mistaken. I saw the good reviews and I think what's happened is that folks who are from the area must have rated it, and those are folks who haven't traveled or experienced much in the way of food. I don't say that to sound... More

We went to La Cabana based on reviews from Trip Advisor. It is a bit off 69, but not far & easy to find. A very casual unassuming place. I'll get to the point. Food was fabulous, hot & plentiful. After a long drive the beer was very cold then served in icy mugs. Perfect & very well priced. I... More

Awesome Mexican food. Want Tex Mex they have it But the real deal is the true Mexican food they offer. Carnitas, carna asada and many other authentic foods. Seafood and if you like the stuff the occasional menudo is offered. I always ask for the green hot salsa they keep in the back. The Mexican steak dinner with extra jalapeños... More

Previous reviews of this restaurant were accurate. The food was excellent. The menu has changed, however, from what is posted on the internet. Despite that, I was able to order what I wanted--huevos rancheros. The wait person was pleasant and the order came out in a timely manner. Also, the chips were muy rico/very tasty.

Great food. Great service. They offer some traditional items, so it's not just typical tex-mex! Service is great. My family eats here every time we're in town.

La Cabana was just a lunch stop while driving through Oklahoma. My husband's burrito was good, but not particularly special or flavorful. My soft tacos - I forget the name, but it had multiple meat including chorizo - were tasty and more special.

Great Mexican food. The best in town. Some of the locals are so addicted, they eat here daily. The chicken enchilada with tomatillo sauce is delicious!!

I was just travelling through, but if I lived here I would be FAT from eating here all the time! I have lived in Texas and travelled extensively in LatinAmerica, and this is the BEST Mexican food I have ever had in the USA. Very inexpensive also. Refreshing mom/pop place and not a chain, very unique dishes. Will go out... More

We have eatten here over the last 6 years and have never been disappointed. And yes we have tried every mexican rest. in town. My favorite is no longer offered but they used to have this seafood soup. TOO DIE FOR GOOD! My favorite now is the cheese releno. Ask for the "HOT" salsa but go easy. Everything taste fresh... More
