I was thrilled to dine in this restaurant, after reading all the positive reviews. But instead, I was immediately disappointed after tasting their chips and salsa. ONE WORD OF ADVISE; We Mexicans don't use tomatoes from a can, nor tomato sauce to make sals!!!..also, food was flavor less, needed salt, and on top of all that, service was bad!...

Stopped in for a quick lunch of Fish Tacos (a nice combo plate with rice and beans) but the highlight was the gigantic citrusy cocktail served in a "casuela" ceramic bowl. White wine, fruit juice, big chunks of fresh orange, lemon, lime and grapefruit, plus slices of pineapple and a few cherries. You can fortify it with additional shots of... More

The service was slow and not friendly. The drinks we ordered where way to sweet to even finish. Couldn't even taste the booze. The carnitas plate was , in one word, disgusting! I physically got sick after eating it. It tasted like prison food. I would recommend the restaurant to anyone. Go to Coyote Joes one block away.

Can't give them one star, as we did not stay to eat here. The sickly-sweet Margaritas, La Victoria salsa right from the jar and tasteless guacamole (is that possible? did I taste powder seasoning?) were enough (at $31 total, for this) to get us out the door and cut our losses. If you just want a decent Margarita with chips... More

We came upon Mi Casita when by walking while window shopping along the side streets. We checked out the menu and decided to stop by for dinner the following night. When we went back, we liked what we saw and were give a choice of inside or outside. The menu looked good and wasn't overwhelming as far as choice of... More

The best mango margaritas!!! Nacho's are great also. Sit up in front at the bar area and watch the world go by! Every time we visit the island we have to eat here at least once.

I was hoping for better, but was a little disappointed. I will say the chips and salsa was very nice but the meat on the tacos that my friend ordered looked like it had been cooking for 12+ hours. It was very dry, crunchy and not very nice. The restaurant itself was very bright and colorful but the food was... More
