This isn't your ordinary "Mexican" restaurant, it is much more. It is authentic Latin American food cooked well for a reasonable price. When I stopped in the first time I got fish tacos with fried plantains and the fish was lightly fried without too much...More

La Cabana has the best latin food in the outer Banks. They not only serve Latin food but also fresh local seafood. I started out with the stuff Jalapenos as an appetizer, it was fantastic!! Followed by the mahi fish fajitas and their delicious tamales...More

The pork was the most flavorful I've had in a while! Worth the price and everything is very very fresh. The menu is not overwhelmingly large and the service is on point. Not your typical "Mexican" restaurant.

We visit the Outer Banks from Long Island at least 4 times a year. The village of Manteo on Roanoke Island is quaint, with lots of shops and some nice restaurants that are always busy in the summer. La Cabana does not have the advantage...More

Good prices & great service. This place was difficult to find on google maps. I'd just search for the Piggly Wiggly next door which is easier for the map service to locate. This isn't the best Mexican food you'll ever have, but it's pretty good...More
