This is by far the BEST Mexican restaurant around! The tacos are so tasty and the kids love the Casa Dias! You can't go wrong with the delicious Sangria. In the summer it is nice to sit outside and enjoy the people watching while enjoying your meal.

Don't bother with the food, it's just not worth eating, stick to the drinks and your all set. Oh maybe the chips make the mark

This was a wonderful mexican restaurant. The appetizers were great, as well as the homemade chips and salsa. They gave you a great quantity of food and the Margaritas were the best!

This is the first review we wrote of this type. However, our theme is consistent with every other review we wrote. We seek value - the best possible quality at the lowest possible price. We are not idiots. We do not believe the simple platitude that "you get what you pay for". This simple platitude is for the simple-minded. All... More

The food here is a predictable but tasty Mexican fare. You wont have alot of privacy here for a romantic interlude as you will be almost elbow to elbow with the people at the next table. If you like a busy, happening and active restaurant with lots going on around you, then this is a good spot. There are bars... More

We had a reservation for this past Saturday evening. We were early so we had to wait a bit, but we luckily got a table quickly ordered drinks and a bowl of guacamole. The chips were freshly made and still really hot. The quac was really good (not the best I've ever had, but we inhaled the huge portion we... More

Don't let the very nice atmosphere fool you. The food is terrible and expensive. If you are going there for drinks, don't. I was sitting at the main bar and actually watched the bartender top off half full Margaritas with water and more ice to fill the glasses. Imagine paying $10 or more for half water?? What a scam!! But... More

Thank you for giving the restaurant a try. We care about all of our customers and strive to provide great service paired with a vast specialty menu. There are many popular custom drinks we are proud to serve, one of which we believe you witnessed being made, the Agave skinny margarita. Sauza Blanco, triple Sec, agave nectar, fresh lime juice...

Expecting a small cafe, we were led into a beautiful, elegant dining room. We ordered an entree, and an appetizer. We had such large portions, we could not even finish them. The chef was pleased to substitute the vegetables that we preferred. The service, freshness of the food and quality were outstanding.

Fresh salsa and guacamole, a bowl of chili plus the best house margarita ever equal a good meal. Also tasted the nachos: good but cheese very salty. Chicken tingla was disappointing. Service was excellent. MOST tables are on the second floor and the steps might be a problem for anyone whose mobility is impaired.
