I took my parents here for my Dad's birthday and we feasted! Everything tasted authentic and fresh. We started with some margaritas (see picture), table side Guacamole, Shrimp Ceviche then continued on to the main entree of 3-way Fajitas (Chicken, Beef and Carnitas), and Chicken enchiladas with home made gluten free sauce for my Mom. The Fajita veggies were properly... More

Have eaten here many times...the food is really good Mexican, less expensive than the "Big Name" Mexican restaurant here in the area. The atmosphere isn't elaborate, but the food makes up for it! Can be a little noisy, still more than worth it. I really like the place.

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.
