“Excellent food and service every time!”
Review of La Caseta

La Caseta
Ranked #16 of 70 Restaurants in Fallbrook
Cuisines: Mexican
Description: This is a gem of a restaurant, that has been there for decades. Excellent, interesting Mexican food; not just your typical offerings. Great desserts, an outdoor seating area as well as indoor, good service, and usually crowded. I can't believe its not on T. A.

“Excellent food and service every time!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

I've eaten at this restaurant for close to 30 years now and the food is just as good, if not better than it was way back when. Contrary to one of the reviews, La Caseta has had the same owner for the last 22 years, who bought it from the original owner in 1991!
Recently I ordered the Shrimp Diablo and it was OMG delicious! The 6 plump shrimp were grilled and covered with a super yummy light garlicky creamy sauce that was not overpowering, but oh so yummy to the taste buds! I normally don't eat the rice so I have room for the other great items, but this time I cleaned my plate! Highly recommended.
The portions are very generous and we usually walk out with a take home box. The meat served here is of high quality, not the cheap gristle served at other Mexican restaurants. Try the hand shaken margarita too!
Definitely the best Mexican food in Fallbrook with consistently friendly service and outstanding food.

I had batter fried avocados and street style tacos pastor. Excellent. The Margarita wasn't bad either.

“Great food....Great atmosphere!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Randy C, I have to agree somewhat. Estrella's has wonderful food, but when I want to eat. I want to eat. Not wait and wait and wait some more. A lot of room in La Caseta. Great food. They have been around for a long time. If you can't get in Estrella's right away and you are hungry you will agree. La Caseta is the place. Sorry.

“so so”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

totally average. was not sold on the atmosphere or the food. weak chips and salsa. some of the smaller taco joints in town blow this place out of the water.
