Came for happy hour and appetizers. It was good. People were friendly. The environment was casual. Margaritas were tasty and we loved the chili sauce on the table.

Walked into restaurant with 2 families. Noticed dirt and moldy salsa. Asked for water. Was told by a surly waitress, Angie, that they sell water. Don't give it out for free ( against the law). Then asked for margaritas. Mine was so sweet and awful, I asked to switch to a skinny marg. My friend asked for a switch as... More

We eat at Mi Casita every year and have had family gatherings there, as well. We are never disappointed with the food or the atmosphere. Very comfortable and friendly. They should bring back the pitchers of margaritas, though!

Service here was very slow, and the bathroom was out of order, so we did not get off to a good start. The food was very good, and the beer was nice and cold. The service was slow, but it was a holiday weekend. Unfortunately the server was non-apologetic and didn't seem to be very interested in her job.

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.

My husband and I popped in for a snack and a drink. Our quesadilla was okay, nothing great. The margaritas were huge and tasty. If not for a decent margarita, I would've given a lower score.

We had dinner here our first night in Avalon. I have grilled shrimp and the house margarita, both of which were very tasty!

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.
