We had a lovely dinner with excellent service at Casa La Vieja. Large portions, fresh salads and vegetables. Ray was a delightful waiter and the complimentary Chalula liqueur at the end of the meal was delightful !

It has been several years since our last visit to La Casa Vieja. We decided to stop in on our last night of vacation and we were not disappointed. J.R. remembered us from years past and we were so happy to see him. We ordered way too much food because we wanted to taste all of our old favorites. The... More

We love the traditional Mexican breakfast buffet served at La Casa Vieja. Even during the busy holiday week, they set up a table for 10 people, and served us quickly. The buffet includes traditional Mexican food and service, and also has a fresh griddle with eggs made to order. The pancakes are also the best I have ever had! Not... More

My dish was good, but the wife's was only okay. The service was excellent. The portions were huge. We should have ordered one dish & shared then it wouldn't have been so pricey!

While it wasn't quite 'the best steak ever' that I remembered from 7 years ago, it was still delicious. Perhaps the best part of the meal was the friendly service. We were well taken care of and had amazing cocktails.

Went last night. This used to be one of our favorites; over the 27 years we've come, we've had plenty of time to find good eats. Unfortunately, it's not one we'll return to. Pretty lights and decorations. Decent service and drinks (can't really mess up a Black Russian). Tortilla soup was OK, but luke-warm; dedos del diablo were bland -... More

We got hustled into this place. Usually we know better than to fall for the sidewalk hard sell, but we were in a hurry and looking for a place near our hotel which led to compromised decision-making. Our waiter was (I thought) rather heavy handed with the humor and clearly overly used to the care and feeding of gringos, leading... More

Lovely place. Quiet. Nice music. Nice staff. Great menu. Missed Sunday brunch, but dinner was lovely. Pork ribs, nice salad, cochinitas pibil. Lots of food for two. Good margaritas. Try it. Pozole on Thursdays.
