Authentic Mexican Food in Northeast

Everything is good - tacos, flautas, chili rellenois - but the real standout here is the gordita......hard to find at most restaurants, this one my well be... read more

Still the best Mexican Food in El Paso. Caldillo is a must and can not be beat. Sopapillas served hot and fresh Joe Herrera keeps the place the best

Took my girls there and we really enjoyed it. The prices are reasonable to every place else. Service is very friendly and getting your order is fast. It is of the beaten path, which I like.

Enjoyed the whole family here. Home cooking without the cleanup! Love the gorditas and simple food. You cant go wrong enjoying the food and the sopapillas are tasty. Each time the salsa and pico have varing degrees of spice. I love it! Makes the place unique, these small things. Go ahead and enjoy a nice lunch with the family

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 The Place itself is a little crowded and outdated.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
