To be honest, I am a little biased, since we have been going here since 1963. There have been a few times when the meals were inconsistent and not perfect. Plus the margaritas and sopapillas are not that good. Sonoran Mexican food is all about the interesting meat dishes that you cannot get anywhere else. And, Casa Molina has some... More

This is a quaint restaurant with good food. I ordered the lunch special that comes with 2 chicken or two beef tacos, rice and beans. Salsa and chips are included. The food was good for the price, $7.25. The tacos were stuffed with meat, lettuce and cheese. There was no skimping at all on this lunch, they filled our plates... More

Average service, good mexican food at a reasonable price. The fajitas are seved with only one HUGE tortilla, I have never seen this before. The chips and salsa were lackluster.

Local favorite with 4 locations around town. Have eaten there several times in the last month. My favorite dish is the Carne Seca plate. Wonderful flavor -- never a disappointment. Also enjoyed the Chicken Frajitas. Had the Chicken Mole which was OK. Try the flan or deep fried ice cream fro dessert. Huge portions, good service, comp chips and salsa,... More

Great margaritas. Too much food. Cheese enchilada was great, hubby had the beef tacos, great flavor. Chips and Salsa were fresh. Waiter was a tad show, hence the 4 stars. Will be back.

This is the oldest of the Casa Molina locations. We have eaten there several times and I chose this for my 50th birthday celebration location. They have delicious food, and make wonderful margaritas! The staff treats you like family with great service and the prices are reasonable. The building is interesting and they have a charming outdoor space with a... More

Casa Molina is on the the original Mexican Restaurant in Tucson. First started in the 1940s. It is still located in the original building which has been expanded but still an intimate setting. They have an outdoor patio which is very enjoyable. The menu is very extensive and has a large selection to choose from. We like the Carne Seca... More

Not on the menu, but made to order Carne asada chimichanga is one of the best in Tucson!!! Of course the margaritas are without rival, if your into that kind of thing....
