We stumbled upon this place while we were leaving the Dali Museum, so glad we did. The food was great, we tried 4 different tacos, the flautas, and churros... everything was great! We live a couple hours away but next time we are in the area we will definitely be returning! Everyone was very friendly and the service was fast,... More

We stopped here when we were hungry and restaurants downtown had a 90 minute wait. I was pleasantly surprised. The food was very fresh and the service fantastic. You can't beat the prices either - 2 tacos (1 the swordfish special) and ice tea for about $10. The also have beer.

My daughter recommended Casita Taqueria before going to the movies. It is one of many casual places along Central Ave. but away from the hub. If you're ok with counter ordering and inside/outside casual seating the reward is fresh tasting ingredients in a variety of selections. We both had the casata bowls-she had the veggie and I added the camarones.... More

Go thru outside seating which consists of wooden picnic tables, inside looked for a table, one of the servers told us we would need to order and pay at the register before seating, we had never been here before, so, we ordered, and received two plastic cups for our soft drinks and were pointed toward the soft drink bar straight...

Thank you for your review. Sorry you felt that we were a "tex-mex" place instead of a taqueria, unfortunately we don't serve fajitas etc..... We are an order at the counter type of establishment with some metal chairs and bar-stools as well so our apologies if that wasn't quite your style. I do apologize for the grissle as their is...

This little, out of the way place on Central Ace. Has the best, freshest, most delicious Mexican food at an affordable price. Good for take away, or to sit outside and enjoy the weather. Everything is fresh made, with fresh ingredients. Not fancy, just good!

This place has become one our few go to places when we want to eat out and need a place both of us will enjoy. The food is so fresh, unique, and delicious. You order at the counter and then they deliver your food to your table. Everything I have had was freshly prepared and so different--unlike any other place... More

You know what you are going to get. I am so glad that this place has moved closer to our house from the 4th St. location. Went there the other day for lunch....have never been disappointed. While it might not be authentic Mexican...it is sure what the doctor orders when looking for tacos, or rice and beans. Food is always... More

Just like the previous reviewer I normally have always gone to the Taco Bus but decided to try something different. Had the steak tacos, these are absolutely fantastic!!! Staff is very friendly, the building is somewhat of an eye-catcher with the tacos and beer sign outside. Normally there isn't much to comment about tacos, but these were really good

I was reticent to cheat on my beloved taco bus but this place is great too, and a better place to sit and dine. Try the camarones taco. Great fresh food

I had been searching for a good Mexican restaurant and when I found this one, it was like striking gold. Fresh and tasty tacos plus other selections. I had the fish, shrimp and bbq beef tacos that were a flavour explosion....YUMMY! Funky new decor and friendly staff too. Check it out!
