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

La Casita was recommended by a coworker. All I can say is YUM! The outside doesn't look like much....it was a house that's been converted into a restaurant...but the inside is clean, colorful and welcoming. I got there around 4:30, a little early for dinner, but it soon filled up. The staff were friendly and efficient. The food was good... More

We were directed to La Casita by a pair of locals, and their recommendation was spot-on. We were a little skeptical when pulling up - it is a little off the beaten path in a residential area. We were pleased to discover good service, generous portions of above average food, and cold beer. The queso was not a block of... More

The food is good every time we eat here which is often. This is the favorite of the locals and for good reason. Service is excellent.

This is the worst place I have ever eaten--the food was awful, the staff was rude. That is the truth and nothing but the truth!

We stopped at La Casita in Alpine for lunch prior to going to Big Bend National Park. Don't be discouraged by the location (south of US 90 on a dirt street) as the food was very good. It was very busy during the lunch hour, but the service was very good. We both ordered the enchilada plate and felt they... More

The enchiladas and the campachanas were very good. The rice is not very good to me. Was a little dissappointed that I had to pay 1.50$ for 2 Tortillas as most restaraunts give them to you with a meal.( And tasted like taco bell flour tortillas). But the food in general was pretty decent. Didnt mind that they only took... More
