My two favorite foods in one place. The best lasagna in the city. I think that also goes for the Caesar salad. I also love the La Cocina Burrito and Chili rellenos. It is a complete dive and you will drive right by it if you blink long enough. They also have a very good wine selection.

Update: Its hard to find a good Mexican restaurant in Round Rock unless you want to fight the crowds at Chuy's. We had been very happy on our first visit here but on the return not so much. The margaritas are expensive-$6 for a small one-mostly ice. The dinners are okay, the service okay, the cleanliness okay-so I think it... More

Love the mexican food, italian and ambiance. It is like a little neighborhood bar. The best enchilades (red sauce) I have had. Have been going back every week since finding it 6 weeks ago.

Seeing the reviews of this place I had to try it, not exactly knowing what to expect (Mexican + Italian?). Anyway the chips and salsa were the first hint things would not be as I expect from a Mexican restaurant; the chips were bland and the salsa had a strange taste (cumin maybe? not surprising as it is an Italian...

Looking for non-chain restaurant? Consider this one. Based on grandma's recipes, an unusual combo of Mexican & Italian. I enjoyed "grandmas recipe" a pork dish with non spicy red sauce, fried beans & very fluffy rice. All excellent. My dining partner enjoyed lasagna. Counted seven layers. Large portion provided next day lunch. Very tasty. Family owned in small strip center.... More

This "strip center" restaurant calls itself "Mexican-Italian Cuisine" and they do both very well. The food is very well prepared, attractively served and tastes outstanding. We had the roasted chili rellaro -- not breaded and fried, but delicately roasted with a mole sauce.. The decor is as good as possible given the location and the building it's in.

My last night in Round Rock was spent here eating dinner, and it was excellent. Salsa is chucky, real good kick of heat & spice, loved it. For my main course I got enchilladas verdes that come with rice and refried beans. It tasted fresh, homemade, and so dang good. I will definitely come here again when I come back... More

Had the ahogado burrito. Very good. Fajita meat was perfect. Mole sauce was some of the best I have ever had. Also tried the flan. It was okay but not at the same level as the meal.

When I finished eating what was possibly the best lasagna I had ever had I thought I was going to crunch through the snow, in my boots, to my car that was sitting in a snowdrift in Chicago. This is the real deal. This little schizophrenic half Italian, half Mexican restaurant in a strip center is virtually unknown even to... More

We wanted to try something new for dinner, and we chose this place based on the reviews here and are SO glad we did! It is definitely a "hole in the wall" from the outside, but has a lovely and charming interior. It would still be a great place for a first date or family meal based on the charm... More
