My husband and I have been coming here for 35 years - so many memories - recently the owners retired and one of the sons took over - first thing they changed was my favorite burrito so I stopped coming - my granddaughter really wanted to come for the chips and cheese tonight - AUGH they changed that too!!! Boring... More

Meh..... We went for dinner. Mixed reviews within my family. My husband love his shrimp tacos. My daughter's order was wrong, she got rice and asked for beans only and her chili rellano was just ok. My veggie quesadilla was just ok and I had to return my margarita. Even the second one was not good. $10 wasted. Bill came... More

Really enjoyed the lunch special. Remember the combos are generous. You shouldn't need more than a two item combo. The food was outstanding.

Locals seem to love this place, but it is ho-hum. Standard decor and menu. On the pricey side. Limited parking at busy times and there can be a wait.

I have been dining at Mi Casa my whole life, being a Costa Mesa native and it's a Costa Mesa landmark. The food is awesome, very filling and nice large portions. I have never had a bad experience in the countless times I have dined here. The place never changes and the staff is always wonderful. My favorite dish to... More

Stopped on vacation and got the lunch special. It was too much too eat, so good. The chips and salsa are to die for also. I would definitely recommend this for a good Mexican night out!

This has been a staple for our family for 20 years! It is the most traditional and the best service always. It has not changed and the staff are the best. Wish we could bottle the salsa and bring it home. The Mexican pizza is something I crave - I have never had a complaint, the food is always perfect!... More

I'm a local and love this place! Beans and cheese they serve with their combos are amazing, the warm chips and salsa they serve gratis (as much as you can handle) are the best! I heart their tamales, enchiladas and tacos most, but I've never been disappointed with their food. It's pretty much a landmark as well, you haven't experienced... More

Service was great. Food was great. Drinks were great. Normally I like spicy salsa. The salsa that comes with the quesadillas and tacos is definitely not spicy - almost sweet - but it tastes great with these two items. Portions were very generous. Had enough left for lunch the next day.

We are locals, and have been going to Mi Casa's for more than thirty years. This place is a little "special". Everybody knows each other, and most of the waitresses have been around for years. The salsa is to die for, and the chips just keep coming....and coming. Add the Mexican Pizza, which is VERY good, to your order...assuming that... More
