I've been going to this restaurant for years and always find the quality of the dishes to be consistently good. I especially love the Shrimp Diablo!

I do not enjoy writing negative reviews. But even more than that I do not enjoy dining at restaurants with mediocre food. Both situations dominated by lunch hour today. Since my son and I were in Fallbrook, California today, we decided to grab a bite to eat. We passed by La Caseta and decided to give it a try. After... More

Our party of three ordered 3 different dishes and everyone hated their dish. Unless you really like lard, we suggest staying away

I've been there every year for the past 6 years, and it's always some of the most hands-down delicious food. Not just delicious mexican food, it's delicious food in general. The servers are always friendly and attentive, it's off the main drag (although in fallbrook, the main drag is not all that bad anytime). My favorite thing to get is... More

We had tasted some of La Caseta's food during a Wine, Bite and Art Walk in Fallbrook and were looking forward to having dinner at their restaurant. While the service was good and the food was flavorful, my husband and I both had 'stomach distress' after eating here (and we both had different dishes). Most disappointing. p.s. we both did...

Your dining experience starts with unlimited tortilla chips and salsa. They have a varied menu with many choices, including children's portions and senior discounts. Beers and wines are available both inside and on the capacious outdoor patio. Meal ingredients are locally sourced for freshness and quality.

It's nice to sit inside the restaurant or outside on the nicely shaded patio. It's a nice place to bring family and friends or come when you don't want to cook dinner. Some nights we love to sit at the bar for dinner so we can watch the game. It's a well known restaurant in town for their award winning... More

This is a gem of a restaurant, that has been there for decades. Excellent, interesting Mexican food; not just your typical offerings. Great desserts, an outdoor seating area as well as indoor, good service, and usually crowded. I can't believe its not on T. A.
