Cafe de olla smells and tastes good. Husband and I ordered chilaquiles they're are delicious. Atmosphere is a little loud and busy on weekend but food and service is great

Worth going to have a cup of coffee/Cafe de Olla. (The flavor of Café de olla is created by using ground coffee, cinnamon, and also piloncillo, which is a traditional sugar from Mexico) sweet cinnamon coffee. Three Mole Enchiladas- smothered in mole poblano, red and green pepián. Delicious and beautiful presentation! The inside of the restaurant is colorful and filled... More

I was brought to this place by a local. There is a parking lot at the back of the restaurant that most people don't know about. Most of the reviews here are correct. One toilet for the whole restaurant is definitely not enough. We were here at lunchtime and it was not busy. This makes a big difference for service... More

Living well over a thousand miles from the border, I struggle at home to find Mexican restaurants that even begin to approach the delight I experienced at lunch at La Casita Mexicana. I have seen moles and tortillas on many a menu, but I'm hard pressed to recall a lunch as pleasant as this. Some special touches: the gift shop... More

A couple of years ago my wife and I went to Puebla, Mexico, to sample the wonderful cuisine for which the city is noted. The best-tasting dish we discovered was the Chiles en Nogada, a poblano chile filled with picadillo topped with a walnut-based cream sauce and pomegranate seeds. Since then, we've ordered it every time we've seen it on... More

Was there for lunch 2 weeks ago very about 5pm and a lot was not working. First time we went there it was very good. First off the waiter did not know the specials. I did not have place settings. I asked for my meat to be medium rare and it was terribly over cooked resembling shoe leather. Couldn't cut... More

I will not return to a restaurant that has so little regard for its patrons. There is only one "toilet" for over 100 people. There is room to put at least 2 more, but the haven't put the money into it. One, if the need arises, most indur the humiliation of sitting (they actually have 4 seats for those waiting)... More

I have been to La Casita Mexicana many times and have seen it expand to the next door. The food is really great. I particularly love the lemonade with Chia seeds. If you like great authentic Mexican food this is a very nice place. The atmosphere is casual but not formal and the prices are not bad.

I was hoping that the food would be as good as all the reviews and bloggers said it was. It was a bit of a drive from where we were, but it was worth it. Try not to be dismayed by the location at it is not exactly a high-end area. The actual restaurant is a stark contrast to the... More

Most Europeans tend to think Mexican food is just nachos and tacos. What a great discovery this was. Just fantastic!!! Everyone was very friendly and the food was amazing. Thank you!!!
