I am not sure why anyone would have travel plans to visit Lakewood, California. Maybe it's because Lakewood was the first planned community in the nation after WWII? Perhaps it is because the city installed a garbage disposal in every newly-built home in the 1950s? Because it is "Tree City, USA?" An Olympic athlete graduated from Lakewood High? Nope! It's...

Mi Casa is one of those restaurants that make you feel like home, in many ways. The service is good, but sometimes you have to speak up to get refills of tea, etc. The food is superb, made in the traditional ways. The Chili Rellno is superb, nicely filled and not too hot. All the burritos are well filled and... More

A little "hole in the wall" - well maybe a bit larger that a hole - restaurant that serves really good, made in-house Mexican food. Great re-fried beans and Mexican Rice. Chile Rellenos are a real treat here - great flavor, great cheese.

Mi Casa is a family-owned and operated restaurant which started out in one space in a strip mall and has expanded to three connected spaces, and there is still a wait at times because the food is that good! They have all the usual things that Mexican restaurants typically serve, but theirs is so much better! We recently took a... More

This family restaurant is quick to serve, and offers a variety of traditional Mexican selections with decent prices. Check it out for an afternoon lunch. Parking is a little tight in front of this strip mall, and there is a security guard who makes sure you are in the correct spaces.

Friendly service and tasty grub. The food here reminds me of the food my Grandma made me, you know the kind from the heart. It is food you can feel that goes beyond taste. The other day Eli and his mom sang happy birthday to me. They are kind, compassionate, and friendly. I love these folks at Mi Casa! :)

Excellent food in a strip mall location. Very pleasant interior. My son asked how they got this big restaurant in that little store front (he's sure it's magic based on reading Harry Potter). Family atmosphere, attentive service and good eats!
