Good

Stopped in for lunch and had to wait approx. 5 mins. for a table. Lots of variety on the menu. The place was clean and the staff was attentive. The food was average. This may sound like a bad thing, but it's just a good, solid, something for everyone Mexican food place.

What a great place. Friendly, comfortable, and excellent food. Their Chile Rellenos were perfect. So different than the tourist traps on the main drag...

Just back from a mid-week stay on the island, and Mi Casita was my favorite restaurant that I tried. I ate there twice, and enjoyed it both times. Their decor is cute and colorful, their wait staff is always ready with a smile, and service is prompt. The cucumber margarita is so refreshing and unique! Sweet chili powder gives it... More

I had an hour to kill before my Catalina Express back to Long Beach so I stopped in for a margarita, chips and salsa. Great choice! Margarita was awesome and the salsa spicy. A must visit in Avalon.

Queso was cold and lumpy. Go buy cheese whiz instead. Iced tea good. Atmosphere good. I don't like it. Music too loud

This was our first time visiting Catalina so we planned on just finding a place for lunch after we arrived. Mexican sounded good so we decided to try this place. We were greeted right away, led to our table, and placed our drink orders. Our margaritas were good but the ice in them (on the rocks) seemed to water them... More

I do not recommend this place at all. This place was not very clean, under staffed and the food was not good. This place was a disappointment.

Went in here one evening and there were two drunk guys at the bar talking in very obscene language and going into detail about their sex lives while people were eating nearby. No one in management said a word to them, asked them to leave or even asked them to keep it down. No one cared. And the food and... More
