Review №5

Love Mi Cabana Mexican Restaurant on Western Blvd. The food is always amazing and the service is impeccable. This one in particular is the best Mexican restaurant in Jacksonville period. So, I highly recommend this location if you want the best Mexican food around!

Review №6

Food was amazing. I don't know how hard it is to make sure everything gets sent out for the whole order. Other than that and they don't offer any kind of drinks for delivery orders. It's better if you go there, sit down and eat instead of delivery.... Its still a good family restaurant.

Review №7

In Jacksonville one normally gets either good food or good service at the local restaurants Mi Cabana is one of the rare places that has both. My server was polite and fast the food was great and the portions were generous. My family and I will definitely return.

Review №8

I love this place! Authentic Mexican fare at a great price!

Review №9

My husband moved ahead of me and the first place he wanted to take me was here. The food is amazing and the people are very kind. This is certainly our new date place. Ordered take-out so have yet to experience dine in.

Review №10

Awesome food as usual. Great atmosphere and very little wait time.

Review №11

I chose this place for my Birthday, we requested to sit at the bar. It was 1520 on Oct 12, I ordered combo of 3. Chicken Tamale, Chile Relleno, and beef taco my husband ordered the shrimp cocktail. Tacos come with cilantro and onion unless otherwise requested. Odd that mine came with lettuce and cheese. Tasteless groundbeef. chile relleno was undercooked, had good flavor. The tamale I never tried because the waitresses were talking about a colleague, Very loud and obnoxiously rude about the young lady. “ well apparently a table requested she not serve them because she doesn't speak Spanish, we always have to do her work” a few seconds later another waitress shows up and now there are three waitresses talking amongst themselves about their colleague.I asked to speak to the manager and was told there was not a manager on staff. My husband then asked who is in charge the 3 ladies who had been talking about their colleague said they all were! Very confusing, no manager to now we are all managers! I explained to all of the ladies that their behavior was rude at best and if their colleague was doing something she shouldn't be then that is something they need to address in private not while patrons are trying to enjoy food.We have found other Mexican restaurants that we will continue to support, this however will not get this Army Veteran's business! We always support local, but not this local place!

Review №12

Great service, our server was attentive to the last detail even with our odd requests. Everything was delicious.

Review №13

Its like a taste of home while im here I love the food and the people are just amazing

Review №14

I ordered food through grubhub today and the food was so cold. You can tell the food was fastly made and thrown in the bag. I had a wonderful driver but I'd never order again from here. Poor excuse for a mexican restaurant!! One of the worst mexican places I've ordered from

Review №15

I've been eating here since it opened. The food never disappoints! The service is always fantastic! Other Mexican restaurants have come and gone, but Mi Cabaña has stayed for a reason!!!

Review №16

Prompt service but staff was seated with family in dining room at a table for 10 or 12 food was soggy and staff was only mildly attentive to refills or the check.

Review №17

Food was amazing. I usually do not like chicken from Mexican and that chicken was amazing

Review №18

Always good! Friendly servers! Clean and sanitized. Definitely recommend.

Review №19

The best Mexican restaurant in the Jacksonville area! Great food and service.

Review №20

Good tasting food decent portions. Good looking place . Good music .

Review №21

Every time I go here it's a great experience! One time I went with my boyfriend and I decided to have a margarita (it was a special Day of the Dead one and it was delicious) and let me tell you...WELL worth my $7 for the size of the drink, and the amount of alcohol the bartender put in it. By the time we had finished our very generously-portioned and truly amazing Mexican food and were back in the car, I was laid back in the passenger seat trying to take a drunken nap because of ONE medium marg! The story still makes me laugh but the best part is that the whole experience at Mi Cabana was just flawless, and it is every time I go, large party or small! They are friendly, the food is mouthwatering, and there are memories to be made!

Review №22

Food and service are always great! By far my favorite place to eat in Jacksonville.

Review №23

Horrible all around! Placed an order online for pickup at 430pm. Food was to be ready around 511 pm. Arrived at 505, was there until after 7 pm. They could not find my order after multiple attempts to locate by name and order number. Only then did they offer to take my order again. After almost 2 hours?? I ended up cancelling and was told my card would be credited in 2-3 business days. It has been 3 now and nothing showing up. I've attempted to call them but cannot get through as their voicemail is not set up. I will have to go in person to rectify this. Absolutely terrible service!!!

Review №24

Great service, great food. Had a great time with my family celebrating Father's Day. Table was a little small and my son almost twisted his ankle off the step near the bar as he was getting out from his seat.

Review №25

Having come from Tucson, AZ, I was pleasantly surprised at the rich, authentic, Flavors I encountered here, in North Carolina.

Review №26

Good food, great service! Love getting this to-go orders are always right and ready quickly!

Review №27

They aren't educated on food allergies. Refried beans have milk mentioned dairy and gluten intolerance and was given refried beans countless times over the last several months (many places suck at food allergies and this is one) only found out once a server told me I couldn't have the refried beans. Contacted for how to resolve this no one contacted me. Absolutely ridiculous. If you have food allergies stay away to go/ servers have no clue

Review №28

The food is super delicious. I love that they serve Horchata! Menudo only on Sundays. The place gets extremely crowded and the setting is not good for anyone in a wheelchair. However the decor is really nice. Especially the carved wooden booths. My only complaint is the service is mediocre and as slow as a turtle. Especially for a drink refill. However, the day that there are margarita specials are the best and are huge! I recommend that you go there if you have a LOT of time to spare and if you want excellent food.

Review №29

Great restaurant and great waitress. Going to restaurants now is a little concerning but they did an excellent job spreading out customers and cleaning the tables

Review №30

Even with the mix up with our food at first everything that was made and the hospitality was amazing definitely made everything great!

Review №31

Always a great place for drinks and authentic Mexican cuisines.

Review №32

Thursday of this week I ordered from the restaurant using a delivery service. After receiving my food over a half an hour beyond the expected time. I found that my order was missing the queso chips and salsa. The steak and chicken fajitas I ordered was lacking on the meat and the vegetables that were supposed to be grilled were Raw. However the food did have quality taste but very disappointed in the lack of preparation as well as order accuracy. Today I went back to the restaurant, which is 25 minutes from my house, and received the chips,Salsa and a half order of queso. I Was not about to deal with the headache any longer. I do not feel like the mistake was corrected however the staff at the front register seem to lack knowledge in the operating system and genuinely did not care. Would greatly appreciate the owner or restaurant manager to reach out to me to rectify the situation and if so I will adjust my rating accordingly.

Review №33

Quick to be seated, prompt wait staff, fast, and accurate service. Food was HOT and tasted great. Although after eating too much ships and salsa, I had to carry out half of my dinner.

Review №34

I usually love ordering the 1/2 lunch fajitas with beef and chicken. I was totally disappointed this visit. The strips of beef were so thin and cooked so tough it tasted like beef jerky, if you could find them. The chick was better. I understand that things are rough but I'd rather have a few substantial pieces of beef and not feel like I'm being ripped off. Hopefully it is just a one off day since I've believe they had the best fajitas in town. I'll keep you updated.

Review №35

Last night I ordered 3 veggie fajita platters. I asked when I called in my order to make sure there was no cheese or dairy of any kind on my order. When I called again for pickup, I asked for them to check my order to be sure there was no dairy, as I was feeding a hoard of vegans. They assured me there was no dairy. When I got home, all 3 refried bean plates had a big ole glob of sour cream on top.I would have chalked it up to a misunderstanding, but this is the second time I've ordered from them and both times there has been a mistake like this.On the other hand, the fajitas were bomb and the salsa was lit. But I probably won't order again because I don't want to give half my meal to my dog because I can't eat what I ordered (or didn't order).

Review №36

Oh my God!¡! It's so freaking good. The food was authentic and the atmosphere was laid back.What was the most memorable thing to me though? Every chair, booth, and table was hand carved so beautifully. It's a good experience. Very affordable too. So what the eff are you waiting on; go try it!

Review №37

Great Mexican food place, I have to honestly admit food value was dead on you got more for your money could not even eat all the food had to bring the rest back home.

Review №38

Nice environment and tasty, plentiful food.

Review №39

Service was just as awesome as the food!!! Hard to find these days!!!

Review №40

Wonderful, fresh food! Veggie fajitas are spectacular!

Review №41

I enjoyed our time there great food and service.

Review №42

Up front - went on a Taco Tuesday. Restaurant was crowded and a had a short wait - unable to sit at the bar due to no bartender for the night(odd). Once seated service was super quick and the food cheap (one dollar tacos). Guacamole was average but the chips were excellent. Solid portions for a taco Tuesday - draft beer was cold but overpriced (8+ dollars for a large). There was a special on bottles for taco Tuesday but I prefer draft. Overall a good experience - I would return.

Review №43

Great place for that taco Tuesday outing!!! $1 tacos?? Hard and soft??? Ya this is definitely going to be my taco Tuesday thing now.

Review №44

Really good food and service.

Review №45

We showed up last night about twenty minutes before closing (I know, we were those people and I felt really bad!) But everyone was still EXTREMELY nice and accommodating! We ordered the fajitas with pineapple and not only did our food arrive less than ten minutes later, it was DELICIOUS. We were so impressed with the presentation of the food that we had to compliment the chef and just the restaurant in general! Definitely our new favorite place, if you're looking for good Mexican food with good portions, look no further!!

Review №46

Good food and wonderful staff. They made us feel very welcome and were patient and kind with the kids. 4 stars for being a little pricey

Review №47

We used to get so drunk back in the day on the weekends and the food was amazing with staff that was really friendly and always taking care of our party, Now seems like a very quiet place but the food is still as good as it was back then

Review №48

Good service, tasty food, fair prices

Review №49

Placed order online. Needed to add to. Called store. Person on the phone was not familiar with the menu at all. While waiting to see if I can have half rice half beans I checked my card online. Credit card was charged. System did not send order over but they refused to take responsibility blaming service company. I advised them they are an extension of you and to fix it. To make long story short. After 48 mins they service company said they didnt take money but will return it. I asked how can you return it if you didn't take it? Bad service all around. I'm disappointed because I use to like their food but it's not worth the aggravation.

Review №50

The food was decent and the service was great. However living in New Mexico has adjusted my palate for mexican food.

Review №51

Food and service was amazing today!

Review №52

Went during lunch time with the family. The atmosphere was good and the service was better! My issue was I ordered the steak fajitas and the steak was sliced so thin and very little meat! The home made guacamole was the bomb! I would recommend this place cause the food WAS GOOD! Just don't order the steak.

Review №53

This is hands down the best Mexican restaurant in town. The atmosphere is very inviting. Great place for a date or even a family outing. The food is amazing to top it off. The staff is friendly and the place is extremely clean. I would suggest this place to anybody.

Review №54

Great food. Good taste. Not your typical yellow rice and refried beans. Tasted fresh and delicious.

Review №55

Went there to celebrate my friend's success & he sat in vomit! Yes, literal vomit in the seat at our table! When we notified management, he said “oh I don't know”.. This place is disgusting & I will never attempt to eat there again!!

Review №56

Have been in this establishment on several occasions and have never been disappointed with service or food... Always a great time

Review №57

The food was great, and the service was on point.

Review №58

I come here at least once or twice a month for lunch or dinner. Food is amazing, service is top notch and the place is always super clean and well taken care of.Also, the salsa and chips always hits the spot as a great (free) appetizer.

Review №59

Great food(Good Price)Interesting interior design!Intelligent server Jennifer!!5 Star!

Review №60

Food: 4/5Service: 4/5Cleanliness: 4/5This is a really good spot for some Tex-Mex type of food. Coming from Cali and Texas, there is just something special about the Mexican food in those places. But with the great service and good quality food, it's a good spot to get your fix.

Review №61

Very good food. Prices reasonable. Staff very nice.

Review №62

Good food. Servers a bit off their game this evening...had to ask for silverware, more water, order incorrect, but the wonderful manners of them made that not a big issue.

Review №63

Food nice and hot ,very well cook,was great, more than what we expected. Service excellent Atmosphere outstanding. Will come again thanks

Review №64

Great food. Fast service. Great prices. Staff is wonderful and friendly. Always happy when I leave here. Love this place!

Review №65

I have been coming here for 6 months and never had the service i have had tonight!! Octavio was a amazing server and a pleasure!! He's so polite and very positive!! He def changed my mind about everything!! And the food came out quick and hot!!

Review №66

First time visiting and the employees here made a great impression on me. Food was delicious and customer service was outstanding! Now let's talk about the margaritas that makes you forget about your problems. Delicious as well!! I would visit again for sure.

Review №67

Love Mi Cabana! Great food and service every time.

Review №68

My shrimp on the texanas fajitas was not cooked completely when it was brought to the table they were pale no orange and translucent grey still. The tortillas were oily and stiff at the same time somehow? The burrito my husband had was alright but not anything amazing. My daughter's quesadilla didn't have chicken in it even though she asked for it but we weren't charged for the chicken to be added either & no one came back to check for so long that we just ate what we could and left. Definitely not as good as the reviews said it would be when we picked it based off them.

Review №69

Quality authentic Mexican food in Jacksonville which is otherwise hard to find. Quick service and friendly atmosphere. Taco Tuesday is amazing.

Review №70

Service was not good. Food was extremely late getting to the table; and wasn't good. But the manager was willing to work with us about our bill. He listened to our concerns with an open mind. Previous visits were much better all around.

Review №71

My one star review is based on a couple of experiences when coming here:The waiter acted like he was bothered that I sat in his section and that he had to do some work. They got my order wrong and when i flagged him down to tell him he went to the back and told the cook, who in turn came out with HALF of what I ordered, slammed the plate down on my table and left.He picked the wrong person to do that to. I flagged down the waiter AGAIN and let him know what happened and that I was very angry. He went to the back and brought out the corrected other portion.It was not an enjoyable experience and quite frankly I have noticed based on a couple of observations that if you're white or hispanic, you will get better service and treatment. Well guess what. This woman, who is neither of those races will NOT be coming to this establishment ever again and neither will any of my family. We are all done with the bigoted B.S. that goes on in this restaurant.

Review №72

Great food! Excellent waiterOctavio very respecful and polite!

Review №73

Great food as always, friendly people and great atmosphere

Review №74

They have a great menu, and the atmosphere is fun. The drink menu is also fun with GIANT margaritas. My only complaint is it took awhile for drinks to come, but it was very busy for monday night. We were a party of 6 and everyone was happy with their meal.

Review №75

Greatest mexican ever

Review №76

One of my favorite Mexican restaurants! Excellent food, service and atmosphere!!

Review №77

Delicious food great service!

Review №78

The food was phenomenal as always. I order the ACP (Arroz con Pollo) as usual and it was prepared to perfection. The server was attentive but not overbearing and wore a smile the entire visit. It quickly became mine and my girlfriend's date spot. Mi Cabana is a MUST TRY!

Review №79

Amazing authentic mexican food, exquisite customer service, and hospitality with warm inviting smiles. Clean and well managed. So worth the wait if you have to. I love mom and pop restaurants like these! Very thankful!

Review №80

Yummy, but hard to get chips and water refills. The waitress barely checked on us. Had to go to the bar to ask for water and flag her down.

Review №81

Service and food were great, we'll have to stop in there again while I'm working in Jacksonville.

Review №82

I honestly don't love their food. I've tried it a couple times and have not been impressed. Their margartias however; were on point every time I came in. I will literally just come here for that. LoL

Review №83

Food was very good and the wait was not long when we went here. Would recommend

Review №84

Ordered online, a simple order of 2 Cheese Quesadillas no sour cream no guacamole..Was told it would be ready in 20 mins. Drove across town to pick up the order. The server looked at me like I was crazy and said " We have no order for you." She proceeded to turn around and there was my order still sitting on the little printer. So I had to wait for them to make my order. I get my order, finish my errands, get home to give my little one her quesadillas and I'm instantly upset because the are Chicken Quesadillas . Waste of time and money.

Review №85

Awesome food, and equally awesome staff. Great atmosphere. Enormous beers. Pretty much the highest compliment there is.

Review №86

Great food, extremely fast but poor customer service

Review №87

Too loud, and food was mediocre.

Review №88

Always great food and awesome service!! Not expensive either!!!

Review №89

Usually have good experience here. However, the last time we asked for nachos without tomatoes they brought them with. We asked them to fix it and all they did was hand pick them off and they missed some. They refused to adjust the bill.

Review №90

I absolutely loved all of the food that we had here. It reminds me of back home in Arizona. Ther service is top notch. Everyone is knowledgeable, kind, and does a fantastic job. I recommend this place to anyone. You can tell the love put into this place and the food.

Review №91

Well first off the customer service was HORRIBLE!! Immediately got seated ( BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT BUSY AT ALL) and then the waitress left, no salsa no chips no asking us what we wanted to drink she just left. So after 25 whole minutes of being thirsty I went back up to the front desk and told her no one has came to our table in the past 25 minutes so she asked where were we seated and I showed her...still waiting 7 minutes after that someone finally came to ask us for drinks but since we were waiting for so long we already knew what we wanted to eat so she took our order and our drinks. She brought my mom a sweet tea when she clearly said pepsi but she accepted it. So here we are waiting for the food to get to our table, they brought out my mom and my sisters food then they brought out me and my fathers food but didnt bring out my little sisters food( a kids meal burger with fries) they waited until everyone was finished eating to bring out her burger and fries...then they made a lame excuse saying they were waiting on the fries. We told them to take it back because I already had shared my food with my little sister. This place was really whack and it seemed like they were racially profiling people but that's just my opinion.

Review №92

I've been here 3 times. The margaritas are DELICIOUS!!! I've have 3 different meals, and they've all been good. The service is really great! The staff is friendly! My favorite dish was the mixed fajitas!

Review №93

I really like the food and the service is ok and it can be better tho. I always say no cheese or sour cream and they still always put it. Another thing that I noticed is that the server never gives us our change back right she be keeping some of the money. And the rice was so hard and nasty it looked like it was really old.

Review №94

Good food and good prices.

Review №95

I could eat at this place every day. Excellent food and great staff. Their Verde could make a grown man cry.

Review №96

I love their ACP and the queso I adore

Review №97

Superb food. We all had fajitas and they were awesome! This was our first time but we will definitely be back for more. The salsa was great and the guacamole was to die for. It was hard to stop eating because it was that great. I can't wait to try more from their menu in the future. Yummy!!! I'll will definitely recommend it to family and friends who visit.

Review №98

Great food and fast!
