Busy spot the night we visited. Typical Mexican Restaurant fare at reasonable prices. Civeche tasted like cooked seafood with a vinegar/lime dressing, not like it had actually "cooked" in lime juice.

One of the many Mexican Restaurants in this city the La Casita has several in the area. The Fajitas are exceptional along with the delicious chips and salsa. My Enchilada Platter was very good tasting, Margaritas very good too!

We mrt up with large dinner party and although it was a great evening the food was average and nothing special. The service was ok and the atmosphere was good. I'm not sure if I would return.

Nothing "special" about their food....basic Mexican flare....that's all folks! FYI: parking is decent, service is OK....I just wasn't all that impressed.

Went there for lunch and really enjoyed it. The portions are huge, had to ask for a doggy bag. I had the quesadilla, which was excellent. Service was fast and friendly. Would definitely go there again.
