I am a life long resident of Northeast El Paso. This was my first visit to Casita Linda. The staff was friendly and attentive. The Place itself is a little crowded and outdated. I did not like the food, the tostadas are not fresh and the salsa was not the best. I felt like it was priced high at $10... More

My husband and I along with 2 friends dined on a Friday evening. There were few people there. The waitstaff was friendly. The salsa quality hot but not flavorful. I ordered a shrimp Quesadilla and got only cheese. When they finally re-did my order there was so little shrimp in it and it was the tiny canned kind. Not worth... More

This restruant was very good and the staff was prompt and courtious. The waiter well deserved his tip after our meal. We will most definately consider going there again in the future. I suggest a combination plate which comes with a Chile Relleno , beans & rice , an enchilada & a taco. Very pleasing.

Went here after another place was WAAAAY tooooo crowded to even get in the door. Chips and salsa were tasty, and we got a bowl of Guacamole as an appetizer. It was creamy with some chunks of avocado, but could have used a bit of salt for seasoning. I had the jalapeño enchiladas, and while tasty, I was belching them... More

Have been eating at Casita Linda's for over 27 years, when it changed from Leo's.My Father in Law eats there as often as he can, Joe Herrera and his Wife have the best. Myself I got hooked on caldillo and the old Leos on N Loop Dr in 1970 and continued to do so on Hondo Pass. When it became... More

I had the Casita Linda Special which has an assortment of different Mexican items. I honestly cannot pick a favorite, as they were all pretty good! The salsa is tasty, but a bit spicy for me (I like spicy, but have a hard time tolerating it later). The service was excellent. It is not a fancy place by any means,... More

Family owned whole-in-the-wall restaurant with authentic Mexican food and friendly, reliable service. Super chile relleno!

Casita Linda is a restaurant I've eaten at for many years. It's a comfortable family restaurant with affordable prices and very good food. The interesting thing is that it has it's own trademark flavor that sets it apart from other Mexican restaurants. I'll explain. When you have enchiladas in El Paso, some are better than others, but they all seem... More

Best Mexican food in El Paso for my money. Plenty of choices and great service team. A family managed and home cooked Mexican food specialty restaurant. Sopapillas are a constant great dessert. . . leave room for your slice of heaven. The only comparison I could make is from a restaurant I visited for plenty of years in El Paso... More

We have been eating at Casita Linda since the Leo's Restaurants broke into different restaurants owned by various family members. The food there is good, but the service is about as bad as it gets. On our last two visits we had to wait a long time to be seated. Once the order was taken, it might take 35 minutes... More
