An Abilene Institution

Growing up it was always fun to go to Burro Alley and have a great meal at Casa Herrera. One of the elements that made it special was the family that ran it. Fortunately, even with the move to a new, more modern restaurant near the Mall of Abilene, that family tradition and ambience continues to... read more

This place is an abilene staple. The owner is always there and is always friendly. We havn't been in about 4 years since we moved 4.5 hours away, but it hasn't changed a bit as far as quality and consistancy. You would think Cheese enchiladas are an easy thing to make, but so many mexican restuarants mess them up. Here... More

I had been told the food here was good. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. Good points: chips and taco were good. Not so good: service was slow getting food and final bill; cheese enchalada had no taste (very little cheese) (I prefer mine with onions). I won't be back.

The person who posted about roaches and the terrible building surely has this restaurant confused with another. It couldn't possibly be Casa Herrera. I've eaten with them off and on for years and it's always very clean including the bathroom. That's one of the reasons I like to eat there. We order off the menu so I can't comment on... More

Our food was delicious and plentiful. Our tea glasses never hit empty nor did our complimentary chips and salsa. Give Casa Herrera a try and you'll leave pleased with the service and the food.

They had a buffet but we ordered off the menu. I lived in Abilene for quite a few years and this was a really great place to for Mexican food. The food was good this time - not great but not horrible. The service was slow. It was a convenient place to meet up with family before heading back home.

The person who said Casa Herrera is old and has roaches is untruthful. The building is well maintained, clean and remodeled almost yearly. The bathrooms are the cleanest and that reflects the back of the house. Food is excellent as most of the reviews state.

Service was only thing good. Food is bland. Building should be torn down. While the customer areas are ok. I gotta peek inside the kitchen area. Floor tiles missing w/moldy spots. Ceiling falling in. And yes, we saw roaches.

We chose to dine here due to close proximity to the hotel. Food was ok. Service was very good. We arrived shortly after they opened and were seated immediately. Prices are cheap and while I wouldn't make this a regular place to dine, I would return if in the area again.

I came in from out if town to attend a wedding event for a dear friend. We ended the ceremony and about 20 of us (adult women) had some time to grab a bite to eat. We ordered Margaritas and our food. After being there for about 30 minutes we were approached by Liz (the owner) who said we needed... More
