Authentic Mexican food in the Northwoods! Who knew?

One does not expect to find good Mexican food in the Northwoods. Having grown up in Southern California, where great Mexican food can be found in abundance, I am not usually a fan of what is called "Mexican food" up in the Northwoods. But this place is an exception. The food is excellent. If... read more

Real good Mexican food in the Northwoods is not normally what one expects up here. But these guys have it in abundance. Huge menu; Huge portions. The inside decor is spectacular!

The food is outstanding and the service even better. I have been to this restaurant over a dozen times and every time the service outshines any other restaurant ! The food is generous (the chips and homemade salsa endless) and very good. A great value for the money. If you are in the mood for Mexican, you will NOT go... More

We used to enjoy this restaurant, and every now and then we stop in to see if has gone back to its original quality. Our last meal here was the worst ever. I had the beef enchiladas which appeared to be made with some kind of mystery meat. The refried beans were runny and the rice was dry. The enchiladas... More

We have eaten here several times (4) and have never been disappointed. Had the Quesadilla Roja yesterday and it was one of the best meals I have ever had. The service is fabulous as well. Sent a Mexican friend and they agreed with us that the food and service was excellent. Moved here from Colorado a year ago and missed... More

I recently had lunch at Casa Mexicana and I was pleased with the food and service. I ordered steak Fajitas for no other reason than it was something I was familiar with. The menu is HUGE and should have something for everyone. My friend and I were seated promptly and were served complementary salsa and chips. They brought our drinks... More

Went for lunch, did not have any Mexican rice made. Flavor was ok, not very authentic. Possible just an off day.

We have lived in Rhinelander for a year and we first visited Casa Mexicana today. I wish I had tried this restaurant sooner. It is bright with excellent Mexican decor. The service was very good and we didn't have to wait long to get our food. We were there when the restaurant was full and had a waiting line to... More

In an area not known for Mexican cuisine, this restaurant stands out as a fine example. The prices are very good and the food was a pleasant surprise. Fresh homemade salsa and chips came right out. Drinks were close behind! We had a variety of items on our combination plates and loved every bite. The servers really hustled too. Sometimes... More

We had passed this restaurant once a week when we went to Rhinelander for a class. Decided to try it out. The service was attentive and quick. I asked the waiter if I could have my enchiladas with a cheese filling, he said sure anything you want. When they arrived they were filled with shredded beef and topped with cheese.... More
