LA Cabana Bar & Grill/ 79th & Quivira

  • 1

Has anyone eaten at this estab.? This mexican grill used to be a Hardee's way back in the day. The space was vacant for a couple years, and now it is occupied by one of my new favorite JoCo. mexican eateries. Tried La Cabana last night for the first time, and I would like to give them rave reviews. The menu is a little pricey, but the portions are equivalent. I ordered a bean and cheese burrito, and a ground beef taco. The burrito was HUGE, and the taco was fresh, and deep fried to perfection, equipped w/ tomatoes, lettuce, and LARGE shreds of monterey jack and cheddar. MMMM...dripping w/ grease, but SO good. We also really liked their salsa. It was chunky, about medium spiciness, and had fresh chunks of scallions, white onion, cilantro, and tomato. Very, very good. Not at all bland like you get from some other locations. We ordered a side of verde sauce to top off our burritos, and the verde sauce was unlike any other I have tried. It came hot w/ fresh chunks of pork in it! It did cost $2.50 for the side, which the waitress did not inform us about when we ordered it, but it was worth it. You get a very large cup of it. I loved it!! Anyone else for La Cabana?

**Side note: I noticed they had a seafood dish on the menu (sorry, don't remember the name of it!!) which included two large white shrimp stuffed w/ crabmeat and cheese....YUM!! I think I know what I am ordering next time I visit La Cabana.

  1. I've been there once and thought it was pretty good, but I'm not a huge Mexican food fan. Lauren Chapin, food critic for the Star, loves it. It's been there awhile, so maybe it'll make a go of it.
