Dinner

Cute little place. Salsa was good despite they used Italian Parsley and not Cilantro by accident. Enchiladas were above average and Carnitas were excellent.

Horrible! Avoid this joint. My boyfriend and I eat Mexican food on the regular, and coming from LA/OC, we know the greatest dives/joints to get our Mexican food fix. La Casita is a dump. First, the girl at the register seemed confused when we said we wanted our food "to go" as we were on a romantic holiday and wanted... More

My son and daughter in-law took my grand daughter and I to their local Mexican food eatery. I was amazed how delicious the meal was. I had missed some down home cooking and this place is a hit for our next trip

I order fajitas. They come out covered in what resembled teriyaki sauce. The waitress said, "I know you ordered them without it but this is how its made, give it a try, if you don't like it we'll fix it" so I put two small pieces of chicken on my tortilla and tried it. I couldn't stomach it so I... More

The food here is very good though the menu is not extensive it does have a nice selection. It is very small. They have a full bar. This visit we sat on the patio otherwise known as fly central. A fan would have been nice to keep them moving. The wait staff is very nice and did their job efficiently... More

We were a large party and Michele took good care of us: good margaritas, good food, and good service.

I have been to La Casita now a few times. Both my wife and I thought the food was great each time we went. The staff was polite and the restaurant was very clean. You can tell a lot about a place by the cleanliness of its restrooms and theirs were nice and clean.

Need to improve their menu to real Mexican dishes. The food is not cook with real Mexican flavor, lack of taste.

La Casita is in fact a very good restaurant. The food was great. The service was decent. Its small and appears family owned. I thought this place was the Mexican restaurant across from the entrance to Lake Gregory. In fairness, I do not know the name of that place, best way to describe is music blaring all day. I did...
