Rural Texas Restaurant Will Please

Don't expect a fancy strip mall setting. This is pure rural Texas setting. Located in a residential neighborhood there is no fancy parking lot etc. You pull in go into what appears to be someones home but you are in a small restaurant. You look for a vacant table sit down and a server arrives... read more

La Casita has very good mexican food and the wait staff are always helpful. It can be a very busy place around 12 noon so try to get there a little early.

We ordered the beef enchilada and cheese enchilada plates to go. We ended up eating on the picnic tables outside in the shade. Beans flavorful, the rice was well seasoned, and the enchilada sauce is a red classic Tex-Mex sauce. Good service. This place is a little house as the name suggest and located in a neighborhood south of Lobo... More

The plate I ordered came out quickly and everything tasted good. The ambiance of eating at a restaurant in a neighborhood of homes, makes it taste as though you are eating at someone's home. If I travel back to this area it will be a must eat place!

My husband and I went to La Casita for Mexican food and were not disappointed. The restaurant is small (formerly a house) in a neighborhood of homes. They only accept cash. It has tables and booths and you seat yourself. The menu is a typical Mexican food menu and they brought out tortilla chips and sauce to begin. They also... More

A nice little Mexican Restaurant tucked away in a neighborhood, so at one time it was a house. Good typical Mexican food.

Ahhh is all I can say. The place was hopping. I waited for a table. I watched as my table opened up and they cleared it. The rag they cleaned the table with was just laying there, no cleaning was done on the rag, just use it from one table to the next. Most of my food was good, just... More

My husband needed his Mexican food fix so we tried this restaurant. It's very small, but they serve very large portions for a great price. You can tell this is a local favorite!

The desk woman at the hotel recommended this restaurant. It was a bit of a find in a residential neighborhood. The parking area was full. The inside is a converted house. Great ambience. The food was outstanding! One of the best meals we had in 8806 miles on the road.

We make the trip to Alpine every year and LaCasita is a stop we make more than once every time we are in town. The food is very good and the portions are huge. One of our favorites is the Spanish steak. It is traditional Tex Mex with a little LaCasita personal touch in their version of a chalupa. It... More
