We made reservations ahead of time because we had read that the wait could be long. We were almost immediately seated and drink orders were taken right away followed by the food order, no straggling through and having to try to get our Server's attention being that we were seated in a small corner. The Winearitas were delish as was the burn you lips off Jalapeño Creme we read about from another reviewer. They did the standard things well like the Crispy Shredded Beef tacos but if you like it, you MUST try their Chili Verde. The Steak Picado was also perfect with the right amount of fire and flavor. Our only regret is we had no microwave in our hotel room so we had to leave the leftovers! Oh, we mustn't forget then flan! It wasn't as sweet as some and more gelatin than custard but was an enjoyable finish to our meal. The service was what really made it as good as it could get and we will definitely recommend this place to all who travel here.

A group of us girls stopped at La Casita last Sunday afternoon. Our server was very attentive, the food was really good. I had a taco salad. The great news it wasn't HUGE, it was the perfect size for this hungry lady. And I also splurged and had a dessert... the fried ice cream. Yep, it was YUMMY! Check out their website for their menu.

Food was ok, but the place had a dirty feel to it, would not go back. The atmosphere was non-existent and waiter was rushed.

The locals tend to go here while the hipsters go to Cafe Aroma. It was a very cute Mexican place with decent food, decent prices and a cute location. They have patio seating, a good drink selection and had good carnitas. I would recommend trying it if you are staying awhile in Idyllwild.

Great chips and salsa. Ask for the creamy jalapeno if you want more spice. The rice and beans are good. We had chili verde and the shrimp cocktail Both tasty with good wine margaritas. Service is super friendly.
