If you want processed shredded chicken, don't come here. However, if you want fresh grilled chicken that takes time and love to cook, this this is your place. If you want the cheapest cut of tough steak thrown on the hot pan that is chewy and tough, don't come here. However, if you want tender, marinated, spicy cut with a fork, fall apart steak for your fajitas, this is your place. If you want tough, chewy chips with sauce out of a box or can, don't come here. However, if you want fresh home made chips with delicious home made salsa, then this is your place. You can complain about the service if you want but when you see a line out the door of people waiting to come in and smiling faces going out, the answer is obvious. This place has great food at awesome prices. Me? I like family run places, they are much more friendly and willing to please. And, they remember you when you return. Oh wait, don't come here it's awful, that way there won't be such a line when I come to eat here. :-) Just kidding.

If you want the world's best salsa -- THIS IS THE PLACE! We've been going to La Casita since they opened over 20 years ago. We've watched the owners children grow up, and now they're in college. They use fresh local produce, make gallons of salsa every day, and the ingredients are all high quality. Great flavors!

Not consistent, but sometimes heavenly and usually very good food. Service is mostly friendly and fast, and the price is really reasonable. Busy with locals most of the time. Great beans, tamales, and the salsa is unbeatable.

Well, it was busy so we figured it must be good. The chips and salsa was great. The chicken enchiladas were not so great. The chicken should be shredded instead of chunks, to insure you have chicken throughout. The rice is always an issue when mexicans are critiquing mexican food. My stomach wasn't happy !
