When you go to a 'western' style restaurant in a place like Bali, you typically have low expectations. They try to replicate the dishes with local ingredients but it is never quite as good. Expecially cheese. Ask anyone who has had pizza in Bali! Taco Casa in Ubud completely surpassed our expectations, and then some. We dropped in in the afternoon seeking out an icy beverage and ordered a frozen strawberry margarita and the old standby large Bintang. We had a late lunch so we weren't in the mood for food. But after watching some orders come out of the kitchen and looking through the menu, complete with accurate photos, we decided to change our 'why would we eat tacos in Bali' attitude, and returned for dinner later.

We each ordered an 8 layer burrito. There is a choice of veggie, beef, chicken or shrimp, with pinto or black beans, red or cilantro lime rice, cheddar or mozza. We got one beef-black-red-cheddar and one chicken-pinto-cilantro lime-mozza, each with an extra order of jalepenos and diced local chilis it it. They were kind enough to serve us homemade chips and delicious homemade guacamole while we waited. When they realized we are into the heat, they added a red and a green homemade hot sauce to the red and green Tabascos and authentic Mexican-made hot sauce (can't remember the name) that was on every table. They even had Corona with lime on offer, though we stuck to the Bintang.

Everything from the tortillas to the sauces was homemade and fresh. Unlike most Mexican I have eaten over my lifetime (quite a bit, really), it didn't taste over salted. The homemade hot sauces were not very spicy but also did not taste mostly like salt like 99% of the commercial sauces out there. Very top end, very good quality chicken and beef, as well as proper sour cream and cheeses. Fresh fresh fresh! Our order came out fast, especially considering how busy the place was. Even at 3 in the afternoon when we first stopped in, it was packed. The staff were verry friendly and accommodating. Nothing was greasy or oily which is great! Not only was this the best Mexican you are likely to find in Bali, I would have to say that this is by far the best, freshest Mexican I have had in many years. Anywhere. I would highly recommend you give it a try. You will not be disappointed.

Great menu options - I went with the 3 soft tacos for a reasonable 35,000 IDR. They had good mexican seasoning that I was missing at another taco place I tried. Hot sauce on the table and side of black beans was nice too. Try the lime ginger soda

This place is a favorite, the food tastes great, prompt service, great spot for lunch or dinner. It is right on the road so busy traffic but the food makes up for any lack of ambience.

We chose this restaurant to eat at after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. The staff were exceptionally friendly and willing to assist and the food was a nice change from Indonesian type food. The place was clean, food tasty and cheap so if you are looking for a quick, cheap Mexican meal, go for it.
