This is my favorite Mexican restaurant. I love the queso dip and chips. If you want something different, add an egg on top. Everything here is great. Also have a good selection of choices. Everyone need to try this place. I love it.

An absolute hidden gem in Abilene's rich tapestry! My best friend and I always go to lunch once or twice a month and today was his pic, and I'm so glad he revisited an old favorite! As long as this place has been around, I remarked to him it was absolutely still so clean and in such pristine shape. We... More

They serve a buffet at lunch for $, but for Mexican food it is very bland. Very friendly place & the service is good. Nice casual decor & outside patio. As a 60+ Texan I've been eating Tex-Mex a long time & this meal did not satisfy the taste buds in any way. No return trips for this spicy gal!

I have been eating at Casa Herrera for as long as I can remember - so over 20 years - and it is one of my favorite restaurants. Their salsa is outstanding, and I love the Low Fat Cheese Enchiladas. This place is truly an institution in Abilene and I wish they would open a Dallas location! 5 stars!

I ate at the Casa Friday 8/19 for lunch...VERY satisfied...Sally was our server. The brisket with onions and peppers melted in my mouth. Kind of a small intimate setting, but a nice flow of customers.

Probably the worst Mexican buffet that I've had. Service was slow, which is never good for a lunch buffet when people have to get back to work. Will never eat here again.

it was my spouse's birthday and we wanted some place quiet as well as good food. we both like Mexican food and we thought of Casa Herrera. We were not displeased with the environment and the food was great along with excellent prices.

Many years ago this was the go to place! Over the years, it has gone down hill. The food isn't what it used to be. I miss the green sauce enchiladas.

Oh my my. My wife told me we need to eat here because she ate there years ago and it was so good. We gave it a shot and so glad I did. Great food, great service, and super great atmosphere. You have to go here so good.

I Did a lot of reviews on a lot of Mexican restaurants as I would be going through to head back home. Ever place had bad reviews except the places we have where we live and when we travel we prefer to eat somewhere we don't have. So basically just picked one and prayed. Well I didn't pray hard enough... More
