Ok, how can you beat the $15.99 Carnitas Fajitas for Two (I think a current special) and we each had a 12oz margarita that was $4.25 each. Left here for about $32 for dinner & drinks for two. The service was very fast, margaritas perfect, and carnitas were tasty.

A relative highly recommended this place to me while visiting the area. They were having 2 for 1 fajitas for lunch so that's what we had along with a margarita. The place is nicely appointed and laid out and the service was excellent. The margarita hit the spot on the hot day I visited. The fajitas were really, really good.... More

Tried this restaurant for the first time. The entrees seemed a little skimpy as compared to other similar restaurants in the area. Ordered an appetizer and had to send it back cause it was way too greasy to eat. The waitress was very nice to take it back and agreed it had a lot a grease on top. The other... More

Dined here as we are always looking for that special restaurant that by its very nature (food,service and ambiance) says come on back!!! This was not it. The service was good (fast, friendly and attentive) while the food was average. Decor was tipico south of the border! Prices were reasonable. BUT we decided to return to Las Casuelas Nuevos as...

Great atmosphere, giant and the best margaritas, excellent food. Had the deep fried Talapia. Was one of the best fish dishes I've ever had. Great murals, service, ambiance. Great spot for a romantic evening or for the entire family.

The staff at La Casita is gracious and warm, making for a delightful dining experience. Based on suggestions from our waiter, I ordered a Margarita, which was exceptionally good. I think this restaurant makes its own fresh juice mix. My husband and I shared a cheese quesadilla, which was huge. I had a beautifully seasoned spicy shrimp dish. Bottom line... More
