The portions are just enough. I ordered carnitas plate and I'm happy that the pork was tender and all lean meat. Of course, the chips are always there for appetizer and this is what I like too when going in a mexican restaurant. I got an excuse to eat chips more than I usually do. Here's 2 photos of what...

My wife and I have eaten at Casa Corona several times and have always enjoyed the food and had excellent service. It is our favorite place by far for south of the border cuisine in Ridgecrest.

In Ridgecrest on a road trip, we visited Casa Corona on the recommendation of the Hampton Suites reception clerk. It was my 60th Birthday and we had a quiet, delicious dinner together. My hubby had the Enchiladas Suizas and I had the Chicken Milanesa. The cocktails were strong. The service was a bit brusque, but timely. Altogether, a sweet celebration!

The girlfriends met here for lunch one Friday. The service was good and the food reasonably priced and tasty. Our party of 8 was treated with courtesy and special orders were accommodated.

The service was good and fast, we had kids with us so that was much appreciated. The margaritas are okay. I always get the Milanese when I eat there as I especially like the cheesy potatoes that come with the dish. I don't eat the rice, so don't have an opinion and the beans are always tasty.

We celebrate birthdays here. Special attention given at the end of the meal with laughter gallore. Ask to wear the sombrero on your birthday. A pitcher of strawberry mango Margarita rounds out the fun.
