Quarantine doesn't stop quality! We ordered via their website and got a variety of items. The Pollo Fundido is fantastic! Packed with tasty chicken and sauce.. Topped with gooey cheese! Salsa was delicious! I highly recommend it!

I had a late lunch at La Casita during a recent business trip to Minneapolis. The restaurant has a generic, chain Mexican feel and lunch was fine. I ordered a taco salad. It was on the small size, but not bad. I did like that...you can get your own chips and salsa at a station behind the bar. Absolutely nothing special about this place. Probably best for work happy hours.More

My Aunt and both both enjoyed our enchiladas during lunch. The server was very pleasant and the food was very good. Even though they were busy, we sat in a booth and could hear one another. Also, the restaurant is very clean.

Had lunch at Las Casitas. Wasn’t very busy so it was easy to get in and out. Chips were good and fresh. They had a salsa bar which was nice with a variety of choices. Service was good and as expected. Nice option for lunch.

Great place for dinner and/or after work get together. Cadillac margaritas are great! People who work there are super friendly and always happy to accommodate your wishes. The food is very good as well.

So my waitress was non existent, got zero refills, never asked how the food was. The food was merely average. It took forever to get the check and a to go box. It was 2pm the place was nearly empty no reason for such poor...service.More

Good food, nice size portions, beautiful decor, comfortable seating. We were served chips and salsa, but up near the bar there was a variety of salsas to choose from.

My husband and I were in town for a concert, not from the area. He was craving Mexican Food, so we ended up here. I ordered the Fajita Supreme (Steak, Chicken, Shrimp Fajitas) and he ordered a whole smorgasbord lol. I'm usually go for the...fajitas at any Mexican Restaurant because I can't handle super spicy foods like my husband. The Fajitas were delicious and there was a ton of food! My husband loved his dinner and his margarita. Service was pretty good as well. We'll come back to visit next time we're in town!More

The food is pretty decent I did like it better than other Mexican places like El Toro or El Loro, the fixings are fresh, the taste is good, the Margaritas are delicious, the place is clean and well decorated, I did definitely like it. The...beans are tasty, the meat is tender and juicy and the service is really fast. For sure I am going back!More

The bartender was very friendly, prices were decent. They had an "open" chips and salsa bar. Restaurant clientele got a little loud and noise was a little bit of an issue.

We come here sometimes and enjoy the food. Not really true Mexican but "dumbed down" for Minnesota tastes! I love it!

First impressions do matter. Upon walking in, numerous tables in bar area were empty, but had not been cleared of customer glasses and food remains. Areas of the bar were stacked with dirty bar glasses. Tables and bar stayed that way for 20-25 minutes without...been attended to. Was limited by time, otherwise may have gone somewhere else. Wait service was Ok, and food typical Mexican fare, nothing special. Bar was not that busy, so either short staffed or management not paying attention.More
