Good Texmex!

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!

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

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

We were lucky to get a table during the lunch rush and had a terrific meal. The portions were generous and the guacamole was outstanding! It will definitely be on the list of go-to places for future returns to the area.

I know that this place is really popular with locals and tourists alike, but the food is nothing that you can't throw together by yourself with a taco kit from the grocery store. The place is cash only, so make sure you have enough on hand or a generous friend to spot you. It is located in a neighborhood of... More

We went to Alpine to go on rockhunting trips with Teri Smith and found La Casita to be the place to grab a great dinner after a long day in the countryside. The food is good and plentiful and reasonably priced. I'm from San Diego where we have great Mexican food, and I would give their food a 7 out... More

My friend and I were in route from Lajitas, Texas to San Antonio. We were starving. I asked someone at a gas station where the "locals" ate because I did not feel like eating in a tourist trap. The gal who worked at the service station recommended this restaurant. I am so glad she did. The restaurant is in a... More
