If you do happy hour at Mi Casa, you can do it cheap OR you can get caught up in their extended menu. The trick is... if you go "cheap," that's the kind of food you get. Their tacos are not only small street tacos, they barely have anything in them. Their drinks were good... not amazing. If you're looking... More

Had the carnitas brisket and chicken mole. Both were very nice indeed. I always like their tortillas. They're more buttery than most. Will be back.

I'll start by saying this, I have grown up on Mexican food. My family really likes it, and I know good Mexican food and bad Mexican food. This is BAD Mexican food, as in it is poorly seasoned, and to me it seems, they tried to cover up the poor taste by giving you a lot. What was in this... More

Mi Casa had great atmosphere and the food is excellent, My wife loves Mexican food and this is one of her favorites. We are always amazed by the portion sizes. Three people could share their burrito and not go away hungry. The soups are to die for. They also have a great bar and outdoor dining area with big screen... More

When this place opened the food was great and we kept coming back. Unfortunately, the quality seems to be slipping and the service is going with it.

Great family restaurant. Huge patio and lots of seating inside. I ordered the combo burrito and it was huge! I took more than half of it home. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were there to celebrate a friends birthday and the server brought us a piece of complimentary key lime cheesecake. It was awesome too. This was... More

This is our go to place for sure. They have fantastic prices on lunch specials. They have terrific margaritas...even during happy hour. Most places put their crappy tequila and mix in the happy hour drinks, but not this place. They don't skimp on their ingredients just because it's happy hour prices. They also have great happy hour prices on food... More

Ordered a way too expensive for Mexican food dish. There was a sauce included that made the mediocre main dish seem OK. The sauce was gone 1/4 of the way through the entree. The waitress said she would bring me more. She came back and announced that she could bring it but they would have to charge me an extra... More

Great Happy Hour prices if you eat/drink on the patio or bar. Very attentive service, generous portions and reasonable prices. Good salsa with chips. Always seems to be a happening place from the amount of foot traffic.

It should have been clear to me, by the serving-platter-sized plates, that my party was not in for a treat with the food at Mi Casa. The rice tasted old, and tough. The beans lacked flavor, and left us with the impression they were neither vegetarian, nor made within days of us being there. They slathered the whole plate with... More
