We sat in the booth Elvis sat in and ordered his faves. The Margaritas were good as was the food. The staff are friendly and attentive.

Margaritas, ok, service not good, crammed in a corner table in the bar area. I'm not sure why people think food is great, is was ordinary... More

This by far is the best Mexican around, when my family and I visit the desert this is our first stop upon arrival and our last stop before driving out, It feels "original" the place never changes, nothing fancy here, great service always and like I said the best food, see you again soon. Highly recommended, oh make sure you... More

I LOVE Mexican food, and could eat it every day, especially when it is as great as the food at Las Casuelas. I have a hard time getting my husband to eat Mexican food, but he loved everything, especially the guacamole with pomegranate seeds, which was on the specials menu. I remember being here YEARS ago on Spring Break, I... More

The salsa is amazingly good. Service was slow and food was average. Stay away from the tamales... Very dry.

You want Mexican? You want Las Casuelas. Be warned, the servings are huge, so get nice and hungry before you go. If you want to go on a Thursday or other event day, make a reservation.

We sat at a lovely outdoor table and ordered fajitas and tacos. The food was good, but our waitress was no where to be found. The busboy was getting us drink refills and the manager came out with boxes to wrap our leftovers and give us the check. The food was resonably priced and there was plenty of food. The... More

We came in after strolling around Palm Springs shopping. This is a long time restaurant, so we decided to satisfy our yen for Mexican food. We had a carne asada ranchera burrito and a combination platter. The waiter was accommodating, making a substitution on the platter. The food was very good. The chips and salsa were fresh (though I prefer... More

We ate here for a birthday celebration. We were seated outside and it took me a while to realize we were out side. The tree cover was great. This added to the atmosphere. The roaming singers found our table and gave a small concert. The food was fine and we ordered Guacamole whis they make right at your table.
