Good place for lunch or dinner

Very busy locale. One of the most popular places in this part of town. Owners are very nice, gave has spots on Spanish TV shows showing techniques. Different from regular taco places. More eclectic. Recommend getting there early for lunch or dinner.

I will not return to a restaurant that has so little regard for its patrons. There is only one "toilet" for over 100 people. There is room to put at least 2 more, but the haven't put the money into it. One, if the need arises, most indur the humiliation of sitting (they actually have 4 seats for those waiting)... More

I have been to La Casita Mexicana many times and have seen it expand to the next door. The food is really great. I particularly love the lemonade with Chia seeds. If you like great authentic Mexican food this is a very nice place. The atmosphere is casual but not formal and the prices are not bad.

I was hoping that the food would be as good as all the reviews and bloggers said it was. It was a bit of a drive from where we were, but it was worth it. Try not to be dismayed by the location at it is not exactly a high-end area. The actual restaurant is a stark contrast to the... More

Most Europeans tend to think Mexican food is just nachos and tacos. What a great discovery this was. Just fantastic!!! Everyone was very friendly and the food was amazing. Thank you!!!

Surprised how great this was. Not your typical taco shop. This is a nice restaurant complemented by excellent and freshly prepared food with staff that are happy you are there. They are helpful and quite nice. Both our dishes were well prepared, served at the right temperature and we only waited a short time to be served. The chips with... More

By far one of the best Mexican restaurants in the country. Haven't had meals this amazing outside of Mexico. It rivals Marta Ortiz's Dulce Patria. Was upset at waiter for taking empty plates that still had remnants of sauce on them. Wanted every drop. Before we left I was already planning my return. Not in Los Angeles proper, but well... More

I loved the restaurant! My friend and I randomly picked this place to have dinner and catch up but we couldn't stop eating and talking about how good our food was! We had the QUESO AZTECA., never had it before and it was amazing! Mostly because I love cheese. The mole on the chips was tasty too.
