Good food

Good, quick, Mexican food, at a pretty good price. Overall, the service and atmosphere is nothing outstanding, but the food is good. Try the grilled corn!

A beautiful, festive décor greets you as you enter the restaurant. Our server was prompt and friendly. The chips and salsa delivered to our table seemed freshly made, however the salsa was way too mild for our taste. My Baja fish tacos came double wrapped which is my preference , however once again the fish was rather bland. My spouse... More

This is a great like Mexican place just off the main beaten path. The service is fast and friendly and the food was good. They keep a big bowl of tortilla chips and salsa for you at the table....the price for the food is not bad for Catalina either. Saw another table with Margaritas......the couple said they were good and... More

If you are craving Mexican food, this is a good spot to visit. I ordered a bean burrito and it was tasty. Enjoyed the bowl of tortilla chips. The service was fast and friendly. Decent food at a decent price for the area.

We’d eaten here before on a previous visit to Catalina and had a great dinner. So, a bit parched from shopping, we stopped to enjoy a HUGE margarita and some ice-cold beers. Chips and salsa were delicious.

Four of us stopped by Mi Casita for dinner during JazzFest. We have eaten here on a few occasions. The food is good but not the best Mexican food I've ever eaten. That being said I've always been happy with my meals and the prices are reasonable for Catalina Island. The have good strong Margaritas. My friend ordered a margarita... More

This place is in a good location and the service was quite good. The food was pretty average Mexican food and for Avalon, the prices are fair. Couldn't really complain about anything, but nothing special to report either.

Our group of 54 had dinner upstairs. The food was delicious and had beautiful presentation. The waitresses were unfriendly and stoic. Perhaps they were stressed. It doesn't really matter since the service was good.

Ate here right before catching the boat back, was asked to leave our luggage outside. The food was ok, nothing special. Too pricey for its quality. The Margarita was watered down. The service was ok though.

Went here after everywhere else had a wait. Nice fine. The food is pretty SoCal Mexican standard. Price as low for Catalina Island. Service was pretty good. Recommend the Egg Burrito. It rocks!
