Before picking Mi Casitas, we were recommended to eat at Lobster Trap or Stevens Steakhouse. But because we were looking for a restaurant in the less than $10.00 range per meal, which excluded the two above, and felt like Mexican we tried Mi Casitas. Having eaten at Mi Casitas years ago, which was owned by a local family, we decided to eat there. The atmosphere of the restaurant is inviting & it had a good number of patrons. Restaurant was clean, drinks looked great but we were tired & opted not to have more alcohol.
Our meal: The beans were watery, the rice was so so, tasted more like Spanish rice out of a box. Our main dish, the cheese enchilada was less than average (no flavor). The salsa had a taste of vinegar, (my wife was convince it was old & had gone sour) the chips were fair at best. A Mexican T V dinner, a bag of Santito chips and a jar of La Victoria Salsa or Pace Picante is better quality than what we had. How do you screw up Refried Beans and a cheese enchilada??? My kids can make better at home!
The next day, we talked to a few locals (three) that live in town. The local opinion from the three was the same as our experience. The restaurant is now owned by the same owners of El Galleon and both Antonio’s. While no one gave an opinion of Coyote Joe’s, they were all quick to give their low opinion of Mi Casitas. We were also told that if you are looking for good Mexican Food on the Island, to try the Sand Trap located in the back of town. The next day we ate at Pete's Plaza Café for breakfast and went again for lunch, both meals were excellent & reasonable.
