“Consistently average and nothing outstanding. Management seems to pay attention to Trip Advisor Reviews too!”
I've eaten here a couple times now and have a very, very hard time accepting as credible the reviews that heap inordinate praise upon the food, especially those that seem to be from locals and from those with only 1 or 2 reviews ever. Indeed, I've seen reviews from others who, like me, commented that they ate here solely because of the excellent reviews. Some time after the first time I ate here and gave a review crediting the food with average quality, and then eating here again to see if my first impressions were correct, I sensed the manager grilling me as having an idea I'd posted a review--if you're not a local, you stand out--and while I can't say with 100% certainty, I think I was in the hot seat for not inflating my opinion. There's a review a couple rows down from mine from Desert Boomers, a couple who mentioned they'd deviated from their usual meal road stop at Taco's OJ to eat at Mi Casita, and their review is dead on target. The food at Mi Casita is average. It is not exceptional. The atmosphere is average, or below, if compared to Taco's OJ. The courtesy of the staff is not to be questioned. Excellent in that regard. I won't be returning, however, as average food is not worth multiple visits.
