I would have liked this place, but I found out that they add "Arnulfo's" seasoning to everything. This seasoning is loaded with MSG. Therefore I had to cross it off my list. Eat there only if you don't mind getting poisoned with toxic MSG!

I have been to Las Cazuelas several times for lunch and dinner. The food is not bad but not great either. I have had chile rellenos, carnitas, and albondigas and I wish I could say they were the best but I can't. It's good for a quick lunch as they do have lunch specials.

We are locals and go to this restaurant frequently. We also get take-out from here. All their food is cooked fresh daily. Their meats are superb and obviously home-made. One of our favorites are the shrimp or beef fajitas. But everything is good here!

The first time we visited Las Cazuelas our meals were served in a timely fashion, the food was good and the chile rellenos were outstanding. This second visit revealed inconsistencies. We waited for 10 minutes before anyone approached our table and asked about drinks or took our order. The meal was served quickly (it was Friday evening and they were... More

This mostly local favorite has an attentive staff that can handle just about any crowd. The exception might be a prime time Friday or Saturday evening, in which case just order another margarita. Most dishes are on the mild side and can be spiced up to your own taste if you like to clear your tear ducts, or just enjoy... More

Their meals are very authentico and very good. Their sauces are home made and the Chile Rellenos meal is outstanding. The restaurant is clean, neat, and with easy seating on the patio or in the main facility. Always take friends there for good Mexican food. Never heard a complaint.

Las Cazuelas has a good mix of Mexican favorites and is a warm friendly spots to visit in the area but the staff can get get overwhelm when they're full & it's often difficult to get the attention of staff. They do a good job for take out orders, the food is hot, fresh, but not stale or steamed.

They use lard...I guess that is authentic Mexican food though! Pretty much everything has lard in it and the selection of salad is very limited, therefor, if you area vegetarian, there is not much to eat. Unfortunate because this is one of the few restaurants in Nipomo. It does have a nice patio for outside dining.

I have been coming here for dinner for several years with friends and family; the food is very good, the staff friendly, and the service excellent. The inside seating area is not huge, so it can get crowded at dinner time. It is nice to have such an eatery in a small town like Nipomo.
