Great, classic Tex-Mex

I picked the place because I was hungry and it was close. What a great find. The service was friendly and the Mexican plate lunch special , consisting of a cheese enchilada, crispy beef taco, rice and beans, was excellent. The taco was crispy to the last bite and the meat very well seasoned. The... read more

Do not go to this restaurant! The food might be ok but I did not have the opportunity to try it. After waiting close to an hour for our table of 4 to receive breakfast food our order was finally delivered incomplete. When I approached the manager about the incomplete food he repeatedly asked us to leave. I did not... More

Having eaten at Helen's Casa Alde scores of times I have only ordered breakfast there, never lunch. The menu is pretty typical Mexican fare with eggs, refried beans, tortillas, etc. What Casa Alde does that stands out is a particular breakfast taco called the Fattie. Wrapped into a home made tortilla (another reason to frequent their establishment) you'll find eggs,... More

Have only had breakfast tacos here. Our favorite is "The Fatty" and their verde sauce. Usually call ahead and pick up on way out of town.

We went shopping at Cabelas and wanted to have lunch in downtown Buda. We looked at all the reviews and decided to try Casa Alde. What a taste treat! My friend had the beef enchiladas and I had the chicken enchiladas. Both were really yummy. The chips were fresh and the guacamole was really thick and good. Fast, friendly service... More

We love Casa Alda, or Helen's as is known by the locals. No frills, but good Mexican food at very reasonable price. Have enjoyed taking friends from big cities to eat there and no one has been disappointed.

There are so MANY good Tex-Mex restaurants in Texas, but often the excellent ones in little towns are overlooked. I recently overnighted in Buda, and not caring for the carb-heavy continental breakfast offered at my hotel, I found Case Alde on Google. I was the first customer early Saturday morning, right after they had opened. I ordered the Supreme migas,... More

Our hotel had a "mediocre at best" free breakfast buffet so we opted to try a restaurant nearby. Casa Alde Café was one of the choices we found on google.com. The older restaurant in the heart of old Buda was a superb selection for us. Our waitress, granddaughter of the original founder of the restaurant, was very friendly and helpful.... More
