"Pretty and a little noisey..."

Great Food, pretty surroundings but kinda NOISEY after 6PM.... The drinks are large so some conversations and laughter get large as well. Food and service are good, may want to opt for quieter surroundings after 7 PM.

If you love Mexican food Palm Springs area is heaven and Original Las Casuelas is another must visit restaurant. Menu is large with lots of variety, all of which is high quality and very tasty. We had the traditional tacos, which were hand made with fresh ingredients. The better half decided on of all things a hamburger, what? What a... More

We dine there a few times a month. Great atmosphere - lively vibe with live music in the evenings. The food is consistently top notch with only the freshest ingredients. Chimichangas are mt favorite and the tacos and burritos are terrific. Priced very well. Oh and don't miss the excellent margaritas.

We went here because Palm Springs legend has it that Elvis dined here in Booth #1 all the time when he lived in Palm Springs in the late 60's. The beef taco and enchilada plate is my favorite!

We went there for Mother's Day without a reservation. The wait for an outdoor table was at least 45 minutes, unless we could make our peace with sitting on a sunny table. In 99 degrees! We agreed as we had just come down from a 51 degree Mount Jacinto and were hungry. Quickly we realized that the decision to take... More

I love Mexican food, I have to say the Original Las Casuelas has some of the best Mexican food I have ever eaten. There is a big difference between the Original Las Casuelas and the other Las Casuelas in Palm Springs. It's nothing fancy or gourmet but it's really good and the service is great.

We enjoyed a nice dinner on the lovely terrace with live music. We started with tortilla chips and delcious, freshly made salsa (perhaps the best I've ever tasted). We each had a combination dinner of some kind. Everyone enjoyed the meal. The red cabbage slaw with cilantro added crunch and freshness to our dinners.
