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.

Although local I had never eaten here. A planned gathering of friends grew to a group of 16. A Wednesday evening, not overly busy, we were seated in an area by ourselves. Pleasant and inviting atmosphere, outside seating available, friendly and efficient service. We were initially greeted by the manager, Jared. While we waited for all of our party to arrive he took our orders for drinks and appetizers. Surprisingly, noting the composition of the group, he offered to split the check for us, a courtesy seldom offered. Overall we ordered a variety of appetizers, drinks, meals and desserts, I heard no complaints. Being Wednesday it was ‘buy one, get one’ one the Tex-Mex menu, an offer a few couldn’t resist giving us dinner and takeout for lunch for tomorrow.
Complaints..... while the manager was very accommodating by offering split checks, our server seemed less than thrilled and apparently the kitchen even more so. Our 16 dinners were served slowly, with a couple of corrected errors, over an excruciating long period. By the time the last was served the first was long since done with their dinner.
Overall a pleasant outing with friends, meal quantity and quality was very good and the value was exceptional. I’m sure we will return.

We were staying at the Inn and decided we need a snack after an early dinner and found one of the best meals we had while in town. We ordered the Beef Quesadilla and the Nachos and were blown away at how good and cheap they were. We got to hear the last few songs from the band. Definitely recommend stopping in for dinner or drinks!

Awesome service, good guac, amazing dessert. Trendy furnishings with an outdoor fire pit, the space was warm and open with large windows. The bar was full and would recommend for a casual date night. Sangria was good, but the pear margarita was something to write home about. Had the grilled corn and tofu tacos, both were okay. But the flourless chocolate cake was FANTASTIC, which is also surprising coming from a Mexican joint. Our waitress was probably the best wait service I’ve ever encountered, and the prices were good especially given the area. Would recommend and would return.

It was our first visit, and since we live in Cairo, a dozen miles downhill, we had driven past Rock'n Mexicana many times. Our friends said to go, and we headed up the hill to Windham.
We were impressed by the attention of the staff, including being greeted by a manager several times during our meal. Very nice surroundings, nice view of the ski/golf resorts, and one huuuuuuge fire pit on entry that will keep you warm in any season!
Ordering on $2 taco Thursdays is simple. You're given a white slip of paper and a short golf pencil to fill in your choices and quantity! I had one of each: beef, pork, chicken on a soft corn tortilla. A side of rice and refried or black beans, or guacamole. Be sure to try the varieties of hot sauces from Horseshoe Brand, a local Rhinebeck, NY, supplier. YOU ARE IN CONTROL OF YOUR HEAT INDEX! Super tasty! The tacos were well filled and exceptionally tasty. We heard that some locals will order many tacos and take them home for later.
The venue has a hotel and condo's and many events throughout the year.
We enjoyed our time and value for the money. Real locals sit at the bar for a re-fueling stop.
We'll be back up the mountain soon!
