Decent taco stand on food friendly central avenue. The chorizo tacos were the best. We ordered the grouper taco special and they were very fishy tasting. We brought this up with one of the food servers and he replied that grouper is a oily fish...More

Casita Bowl is delicious. Casita's is dog friendly with covered outdoor seating. It's very casual; you have to stand in line to order, but the food is brought to your table. Margarita was good, but a little sweet to my taste.

Have eaten there, both in their previous setting and now on Central Avenue. The food is fine, but not outstanding.. They face competition from eateries like Red Mesa, and the Mexican food trucks. Not worth the journey.

It still surprises me to see folks lined up out the door at lunch time most days. Totally worth it. Salad with mild chicken add grilled vegetables. Delicious! Friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere.

Went to Casita Taqueria because TripAdvisor listed it has #1 of Mexican restaurants. It rapidly became clear this was being overly generous. First, the ambience: Take an old gas station and put a third of the tables (mostly plastic tables and chairs) inside it with...More
