“Best. Mexican. Food.”
Reviewed January 21, 2012

Casa G is reliably great, from the corn chips and salsa to the 'soup or salad, señor?' to the Coronas, margueritas, and, my favourite, camarones Acapulco. My first visit was in 1991, and on 15+ trips to the US it's been a Leona Valley favourite. Just 58 miles from LA, it's an easy day trip for Aussies trying to fill in a day before a late flight home (and it's so un-LA), or a tasty detour on the LA-Vegas run (from LAX take 405 north, then 5, then 14, then exit at Palmdale. After lunch, get back on 14, head north to Mojave, then east to Barstow (and factory outlets) then up 15 to Vegas. If you're heading back to LAX, take the scenic route via Bouquet Canyon (GPS recommended to steer you through Santa Clarita).

PS Leona Valley is a great example of rural small town America.

“Small Town Favorite!”
Reviewed January 26, 2011

I have been going to Casa for years. It is a dependably great local restaurant where everyone knows your name. The food is delicious. The homemade salsa is to die for! The drinks are excellent. If you are new to the area and are dining during daylight hours, I recommend dining on the second floor, which offers panoramic views of Leona Valley.

“Great mom and pop Mexican restaurant”
Reviewed January 9, 2010

We are locals and eat at Casa on a regular basis. It is a great mom and pop place with a lot of food for the price. Say hello to Bartolo and Luis from Bill and Pam when you get there. You just may see horses tied up to one of the trees. If you get there between 5:00 PM and 7:00PM, you may need reservation.
