Great Mexican Food

A little "hole in the wall" - well maybe a bit larger that a hole - restaurant that serves really good, made in-house Mexican food. Great re-fried beans and Mexican Rice. Chile Rellenos are a real treat here - great flavor, great cheese.

This family restaurant is quick to serve, and offers a variety of traditional Mexican selections with decent prices. Check it out for an afternoon lunch. Parking is a little tight in front of this strip mall, and there is a security guard who makes sure you are in the correct spaces.

Friendly service and tasty grub. The food here reminds me of the food my Grandma made me, you know the kind from the heart. It is food you can feel that goes beyond taste. The other day Eli and his mom sang happy birthday to me. They are kind, compassionate, and friendly. I love these folks at Mi Casa! :)

Excellent food in a strip mall location. Very pleasant interior. My son asked how they got this big restaurant in that little store front (he's sure it's magic based on reading Harry Potter). Family atmosphere, attentive service and good eats!
