Had lunch on a visit to Avalon. Margaritas are huge and delicious. Carnitas were tasty, not greasy as at other places. Service was very good. They didn't serve tap water (due to drought conditions) but bottled water was available for fifty cents.

We come to Avalon every year and always eat at Mi Casita. The food is authentic and very good. My favorite is the chili colorado with rice and beans. The servers are friendly and helpful and its an all around great restaurant. The pictures and tiles on the walls are beautiful.

In a state that is very health conscious we were somewhat surprised at the lack of vegetarian options in Avalon. This lovely little Mexican restaurant though served us well in the veg department. We left it with a full and happy veg daughter!
