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

We stopped in here after a very long day and the food hit the spot. The menu is relatively varied for Mexican fare. The staff was very friendly and the food was good. I would recommend a stop in. It's more pubby than restaurant and it is part of a hotel; just an FYI.

I am a local resident and enjoyed my first visit this week. I have always been concerned since my wife has a severe reaction to Gluten and we were amazed at the knowledge of the staff regarding this problem. We were welcomed at the door by Jared and he assured us the kitchen was well aware of the food issue.... More

I am giving this a 4 star because - you never actually know when they are going to be open! ALWAYS call ahead of time, because they open and close at the most random times. However, the food is EXCELLENT, the staff is always very good, and the drink (especially the sangria margs) are absolutely amazing! :) The place is... More

One of our first times at this restaurant yet I have little to no bad things to say about our experience! The place was great, right on the main street and a great location to watch the parade from. The service provided by Josh and Katelyn was phenomenal especially considering how busy it was, and the fact that it was... More

Stopped by for an early dinner and sat at the bar. The bar tender was attentive and served us drinks quickly. We ordered and enjoyed our food. I had the chicken fried steak with the spicy sauce with queso on top, and it was delicious. It was better than my boyfriend's enchilada's, but he still enjoyed those as well. Had... More

A Saturday night with a full dining room and bar.....Staffed by one courageous waitress with was playing hostess too, one miserable bartender and one super nice manager who was trying to keep it all together.

Description
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.
