To find a decent, authentic Mexican restaurant, run by German-Mexican brothers/founders, in Düsseldorf isn't easy. There are a number than consider themselves "Mexican" however, their recipes are quite German or a fusion of Turkish, Italian, etc. Having tried authentic Mexican, amongst my favorite, the two Casitas Mexicanas (one in Bilk, the second in Pempelfort) are your best choice. Service is friendly, the price/quality relation is quite acceptable, yet the choice of plates is quite limited. Although the restaurant does offer probably the widest choice of original Mexican tequilas, they only offer flour tortillas. Their guacamole is delicious, the best I have tasted in Düsseldorf, apart from the home-made. They offer set lunch menus during the week and are a great place to meet with friends, watch a soccer match or celebrate parties. A block away from the restaurant, on the corner of Schirmerstrasse & Beuthstrasse, you will find one of the best ice cream parlors in Düsseldorf, and well worth having dessert there.

Great authentic mexican food, warm people, and my wife tells me to say hot chefs too.

Something about these Mexican chaps sweating away over a stove and their cheeky smiles does it for her apparently.

As an American I used to really good Mexican food being available at reasonable prices, however in Germany it is a completely different story. Most mexican restaurants in Germany have terrible food that has nothing to do with authentic mexican cuisine and primarily focus on serving cocktails. Casita Mexicana however is the real thing. Their menu isnt very large but the dishes they serve are all top notch and very reasonably priced. I recommend getting the mixed menu available for 2,3, 4 and 5 persons which allows you to try several dishes, but dont order an appetizer because it is alot of food. Their margaritas are strong but not frozen and I think they don't have any other cocktails, which didn't really bother me though. Its a small place so very cozy, but you may want to make reservations on weekends. They also have outside seating on the sidewalk.

This has been a weekly visit for us over the last several months. The food is very good authentic Mexican (no cheese on the tacos), fairly priced and nicely portioned. It is a really nice little place that is friendly and fun. The food is actually inexpensive, the plates are decent sized but not really large. The drinks are priced a bit high but the inexpensive food balances that out.

The Margaritas are made with fresh lime juice and not some nasty mix.

Writing this review reminds me that we have not gone this week so now I have something to look forward to!
