Love, love, love Cava del Tequila! Avocado is by far my favorite. Chips and Salsa are inexpensive. And don't forget to follow them on Twitter for a discount.

This is right up my alley! I plan my days around La Cava. On our trip in September of this year, we went 3 times. I did get the margarita flight and thought the avocado margarita was the best.

In a few days, we're going back to WDW and again have World Showcase planned for 3 separate occasions. We make sure to get to La Cava right at noon when it opens because it can get crowded early due to the limited seating.

I'll definitely do another flight and this time want the jalepeno margarita thrown in. I hear that one is very good too.

The guacamole is verrry good and they give a lot.

Just a fantastic place!

I have been DYING to try this place, but still have not gotten the chance. Now I am sufficiently hungry (and thirsty) for my lunch which will not include a cocktail. haha. Great job!
