Taco Tuesday

Here for Taco Tuesday and not very impressed. The fish tacos were good, the pork fair, but the carne asana were tastless. Guacamole was pretty tasteless too, but they did bring me veggie sticks since I couldn't have the corn chips. Our server was very nice, but pretty non existent. She... read more

We always do a take out service and enjoy the food at home. Portions are huge and the food is fantastic. Staff is always friendly and accomodating. A must try if you have not done so already

We went for lunch our first time at Mi Casa. Surprisingly, they weren't very busy (it was a week day). On weekends they seem to be packed. The portions were large and the food was great. The Margaritas, however, were rather small portions. I hope they enlarge them in the future.

I've been here a few times now, and although the service is great, the food is always really bland. Definitely not authentic Mexican... Guacamole is not just a mushed up avocado (seriously! not even salt and pepper!). I like their margaritas, though, and their Caesar salad (which isn't at all a Caesar salad) is pretty good.

When we visit our son in Aliso Viejo, he always likes to go to MI Casa. It is a drive from their house, but they like it. The margaritas are good. There is endless chips and salsa. The food is served in large portions and pretty good. You definitely will not leave hungry. Worth the drive to try.

The tortilla soup is the Bomb and only $3 a bowl at happy hour 4-6 Tuesday through Friday. Awesome street tacos on Taco Tuesdays. The menu is a little above average, but most of the food is really good!!

Met friends for a happy hour drink and food- came here because its so close to where we work. Buy because there was a party in the patio, where happy hour usually takes place, we had to sit in the dining room. This was ok with the 6 of us girls except that the restaurant would not honor the happy... More

This is a very nice restaurant, pleasant atmosphere, traditional Mexican menu. I ordered the tamale plate which was very good. The tamale was Very Large, I could hardly eat any of the rice and beans. Tortilla chips are complementary and served immediately with three selections of salsa. All of our group enjoyed their meal with lots of leftovers!
