Change of Menu

As the new chef in Cabana Grilles, Chef Diana Johnson has her plans. Some of these plans include the introduction of lighter fare such as salmon, scallops, halibut, cod, and steaks. Furthermore, due to the arrival of a new chef, Cabana Grilles is introducing a late-night menu which will include burgers and nachos.
