Lately, due to some medical concerns, we've been having to dine out more than usual. My wife and I are both cooks, so normally we cook at home, however....due to our schedule.... we have been dining around the Fayetteville and Springdale, AR areas the past few months. We decided to have a "date" night and head to Eureka Springs, and we are SO glad we went to Casa Colina. We had been promising ourselves we would get over there, but our schedule has kept us out of the area a lot.
We were greeted with HUGE smiles from the staff as we came down the stairs into a very inviting outside dining/beverage area that is very open with lots of fans. The atmosphere is festive and very comfortable. We dined inside and had drinks, chips and salsa immediately. The salsa was so good, we asked if they made it themselves...which they do and of course we now have a jar at the house! Our waiter Joseph, happened to be one of the owners, and he was AMAZING. His timing was perfect. Refills exactly when needed, the table guacamole he made was awesome. We had the chicken fajitas and the chicken chimichanga. The fajitas had been marinated just right, seasoned better than I had every had and they were extremely tender. My wife seems to ALWAYS get the chimichanga when we dine Mexican, so of course she did the same. She made the comment of it being the best she had ever had. One thing I can say is it's not Tex-Mex.
I read on here that some complained they didn't accept credit cards...not true. We paid at the table and the receipt was sent to my email immediately.
This was our most enjoyable dining experience in years. Our ONLY regret is that we waited so long before we dined there. Scale of 1-10 (10 the best), we would rate this place an 11. Outstanding atmosphere, service, food and price.
We'll be back as this will probably be our new "date night" getaway! And, we'll spread the word!
