This cantina looks like it could be a lot of fun in nicer weather, with an outside seating area around a fire place. The beer, wine, and margaritas were great; the food, average: fajitas, taco salad, burrito. That being said, the enchiladas get rave reviews!

Off season experience should not mean off season food quality. What makes it average? Poor appetizers in size and taste. The cheese dip was no different than a supermarket jar off the shelf. We ordered 3 apps and should have skipped them all. Dinner was...More

We went for dinner around 8 and it looked like they were closing. The drinks were weak and the food was not good. Our waitress was very friendly and the decor was nice and clean.

First of all, as a gluten-free diner, I was excited to see numerous gluten-free options on the menu. I'm not a vegan/vegetarian, but if you are, note that there won't be as many options for you, yet there are some. The food was well-prepared, and...More

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.
