So delightful . . . that it was worth the parking ticket!

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... read 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!!!

Surprised how great this was. Not your typical taco shop. This is a nice restaurant complemented by excellent and freshly prepared food with staff that are happy you are there. They are helpful and quite nice. Both our dishes were well prepared, served at the right temperature and we only waited a short time to be served. The chips with... More
