“Lots of food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

They serve a lot of food. We often call and get take-out and my wife and I split a dinner.
Excellent caldo with the dinner, or as a main course.
This is a regular at our home.

“Very Good Seafood, Mexican style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

This is one of those places that if I lived nearby, I'd hesitate to recommend because too many more people would crowd in and I'd have to wait longer for a table.

The restaurant is on the north side of Pike Blvd. on the north side of Weslaco, west of Texas Ave., about a block south of US 83. It's definitely worth the effort to find it. It is a busy place for lunch--local businessmen, shoppers, and an occasional informed tourist.

The seafood platters are huge and they are excellent. We just wanted a light lunch this trip, so ordered the fish tacos. They were very, very good, and like all all orders at Casa de Marisco were preceded by a a generous sized cup of marisco--seafood soup. Oh what great tastes!

The well-trained, attentive waiters are dreseed in black pants, white shirts and ties, and black aprons. Most have been waiters there for many years.

The decor is simple--formica table tops, plain chairs. Emphasis is on food and service.
