This is our #1 favorite restaurant. Worth the drive. Why? The food is way beyond delicious. Unbelievably tasty flavors. I cannot emphasize this enough. The proprietors (Mabel & Joel) are super, good-hearted, fascinating people. Mabel always treated our elderly family members very well when they were around; made them feel special & respected. Once in awhile, we've heard Joel (head... More

This place isn't fancy but it has some of the best carne asada anywhere. It is one of my favorite meals. The flavor of the meat when it is wrapped in a taco shell with the cabbage is outstanding. The beans are also delicious. Another option that is killer is the pork chops with gravy. Both meals are fairly large... More

We have been eating at Mabel's for over 25 years. They serve delicious, non-commercial Mexican food. Mabel created the recipes herself. The locals know and love this place! Atmosphere is not great, so don't expect much there, but the food makes up for it!

Wife and I tried this place on a Friday night. It must of been a off night based on the other reviews, but service was very subpar. Food was subpar. The waitress barely put any effort in serving us. Never came and checked on us after food was delivered. No drink refills. Never brought over our check. Not busy at... More

quaint, small quiet atmosphere featuring home-cooked Mexican dishes. Owner usually waits on tables. You must bring your own alcoholic beverages

Decided to try Mabel's based on positive reviews. Very good choice and close to highway. Does not look like much from the outside but worth going to this place.

This is the first time we have gone to this place. We went here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. The owner waited on us. the service was great and so was the food - will definitely be returning in the near future.

My lunch companion and I had read about Cafe Mabel's (pronounced Ma-Bell) in Laurel, Montana, in the Montana Quarterly, so I had high expectations about the food. I was not disappointed. In fact, the food exceeded my expectations. I had pork in a chipotle cream sauce. I was tempted to lick the plate after I had eaten every bite of... More
