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.

We often join friends there for a meal. This couple has spent a lot of time on the Caribbean side of Mexico. They love this place! If you are on a budget you may want to order ala carta and go with the beer special of the day.

Was in a conference in Sun Valley for the weekend. Some of the local conference attendees had recommended La Cab as the best restaurant in the area. Thought we'd give it a try on our way out of town. It's nice to see a Mexi restaurant with Latino staff and Latino customers who obviously enjoy the place. And a mix... More

Cabinita is a local's secret place where the food in always fresh and the menu real Mexican as you can tell by the clientele. The service is with a smile and smiles will be on your face.

My wife and I and another couple had lunch at La Cabanita yesterday and really enjoyed it. The flavor was cooked into the food and we all enjoyed our meals. Pricing was very reasonable, I heartily recommend La Cabanita

We were part of a wedding party of 50 people who gathered on the outdoor porch for a casual dinner. The staff handled our large group really well. The dinners were huge portions and really delicious. This place is not fancy and looks like a hole in the wall, but it was excellent food and had good service.

This reminds me of Mexico. Food is authentic, prices were reasonable, service was friendly. One thing that always annoys me is Mexican food that is pretentious. This place is NOT like that. The food tastes like Mexico, and the outdoor seating was very nice. Don't go here looking for "cuisine", plenty of those places downtown.

Good food with a great story to go with it. Four brothers began the resturant from scratch and do all the cooking with authentic Mexican dishes. Simple but delicious, inexpensive but superb, minimal decor yet charming, no pretensions here but good food and service... albeit very busy on Tuesday...you might need to remind your waiter occasionally. Go with a light... More

Absolutely delicious and authentic! We had combination plates, one with prawns and one with a chile relleno and a cheese enchilada. Every element of our dinners tasted special, including the tortillas, salsa, and guacamole. Warm and welcoming hosts and servers also make this place special. The atmosphere is not fancy but comfortable and unassuming; it feels like our favorite neighborhood... More

We stopped in for the Taco Tuesday special and ended up having a combo instead. Great rellanos! What it lacks in ambiance it more than makes up for in excellent food at good prices. A treat to get refried beans with our chips and salsa before the meal.
