La Casita is a small, casual place located in an old house that's off one of Alpine's side streets. It has a nice rustic vibe and décor, and seems to be a "locals" kind of place. The food is fairly typical, which is to say not particularly noteworthy (either good or bad), though the ingredients seem to be fresh and... More

We found this place by searching Trip Advisor for local Mexican. We were not disappointed. The food was awesome and portions large. I felt it was well worth the money. I would give a 5 star in a heart beat if they accepted credit cards and if they would serve on the front patio.

Off the beaten track. Almost all local cliants. Many cliants are the "working class" looking for good eats. My taco slad was excellent. Prompt service. One of those "let me fill your tea uptake with you" places.

Dropped by La Casita at about 5pm on a Tuesday when many places in Alpine seemed closed. The restaurant is quite basic but the menu has a good selection including some vegetarian choices.

The hubs and I were visiting Fort Davis and decided to drive into Alpine for dinner. After searching for restaurants on Trip Advisor we found La Casita. What an awesome stroke of good luck!! Small restaurant but could still probably seat 40-50 people. Food was awesome and pretty extensive menu. Hubs ordered the taco salad and I ordered the chicken... More

Food is pretty good for way out west texas in a tiny little town. Cash only. Pay at the bar. Beer only. No liquor. Good chips. Homemade salsa. Enchiladas are good. Quesadillas are good. Guac is creamy and not traditional, buy good. Nachos are good too. Tiny little hole in the wall place behind sul ross university football field.

A little pricey for the area, but good family dining. Hard to find as no sign at location telling you what it is.

The food is always great. I recommend the soft taco plate! Cash only! The portions are extremely generous and everything tastes homemade.

One of my favorite places in Alpine. Very casual. Had chile con queso and the beef enchilada dinner, friends had mexican plate and green chile chicken enchilada plate. We all enjoyed our dinners. They do have beer available. Good portions. Good prices.
