Average food, less than impressed

We've been craving some good Mexican food for a while, but I couldn't get online to search TA in time, and we were really hungry, so we stopped at Mi Casa. I had reservations about it coming in, as it lacked the awesome smells normally associated with fresh, hot chips and sizzling asada. The prices... read more

this was our second time eating here while visiting Franklin. It was tasty but nothing to write home about. The place is clean, service friendly & quick. The rice was much better than I have had in the past at other Mexican restaurants. Prices are much higher than what we pay in Florida but not overly expensive.

This is the first time at Mi Casa and I seriously doubt I will return. 3 of my family members and myself had a late lunch early dinner there. The service was good and the place was very clean. Chips and salsa were brought right away, though the salsa was very bland. No flavor or temperature. Drinks next and my... More

We always eat at Mi Casa 3 to 4 times when we are in Franklin. Great service and fantastic Mexican food. You get a huge meal for a very fair price. They are always busy but get you in and treat you like your the only customer they have. They also have a great outdoor dinning area. i would highly... More

We were visiting Franklin, NC Sunday afternoon and had a hard time finding a restaurant opened after 4:00 pm. We were starving and craving authentic Mexican Food. Wow!!!! We found a great place to eat. The service was fast and friendly. We felt welcomed and right at home. The chips and drinks were on our table within minutes after we... More

Let's face it. Most Mexican food is the same, or so it seems. However, this place has always been my favorite. Pollo con crema is THE BEST!!! Be ready for a little heat, but it's not bad.They have a wider variety on the menu than most Mexican restaurants. Small, quaint atmosphere. For any occasion, you'll love the food here!!! Oh... More

You know, Mexican restaurants are a dime a dozen today, and Mi Casa seemed pretty decent to me when we dropped in for a late lunch, early dinner. Food was good, and the service was good too. I place them in the category with most Mexican food type places of a similar style, and it was okay, not great, but... More

The food had no seasoning, and wasn't even hot. The worst food in Franklin, and I live here! And pricey. 24 dollars without drinks of any kind, for two people. For lunch! Not friendly either...

As the Spanish expression goes, mi casa es su casa implies a welcoming place where are feel at home. Well, on this particular night that didn't apply to myself and guest. We'd spent the day in Highlands, were quite hungry, and read for a solid Mexican dinner. Our waiter seemed impatient with us, actually walking away before we had a... More

This is restaurant is average. The food is ok. We have had better. Service was good. Overall cost is a little high for the type of food.
