Casa colina has some of the best Mexican food I have ever eaten. I have traveled extensively in Mexico and the Southwest and this place is doing it right. They don't have a cook; they have a chef.

“Not what we expected!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

On a cold night we were very hungry and eager to have some good food. Most places have an inside waiting room/bar to be inside if it's cold outside but we waited outside with a party of 6 woman who had been waiting for 45 minutes and still had 30 more to go. Since we were 2 we were only waiting for 20-30. No matter what we got, how could anything top the Pace pacante sauce and stale chips. Food was so so. But hey, when you get to pay for PACE AT A MEXICAN RESTAURANT, WHATS NEXT? TOSTINOS PIZZA AT A PIZZA JOINT?

JJJoy, Owner at Pepe Tacos at Casa Colina, responded to this review, May 15, 2013
Sorry for your wait outside. We are like many restaurants in Eureka Springs operating in an original historic building. We operate under very strict guidelines as to any modifications that can be made to the building. Because of these restrictions we are only open 8 months during the year. This year the weather has been unseasonably cold and some nights can be chilly, we do have outside heaters for your comfort. As to the matter of Salsa we make it on location and actually bottle it for retail consumption under the label Pepe Taco's Salsa

“Best Banana Daiquiri”

My sister and I visited this place for lunch and they had the best banana daiquiri and pina coladas I have ever had. We also had the fajitas and they were very good.

“Out of crab and taquitos so we settled for bland shrimp”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Went based trip advisor reviews nice atmosphere and staff.after we were seated we were told they only take cash or local check. We are from out of state. After we ordered crab cakes we were told they are out of crab and taquitos. This is 6:00 on Sunday. we ordered adobo shimp skewers whi ch were bland and barely warm. How can a Mexican restaurant be outof taquitos unless they serve frozen? So maybe that was a good thing. i won't go back

“Great salsa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

Casa Colina has great salsa. It was delicious. We ordered the chicken quesadilla, which was also very good. Our server was excellent -- answered questions, checked back with us several times to make sure everything was as expected. We were there a bit early for the dinner hour, so we had no trouble with parking, which is limited. Credit cards not accepted; we paid with cash.
