I make a point of stopping here everytime I'm driving in this direction. The food is really good and the atmosphere is great. They take their time which means the food tastes how it is supposed to. If your in a hurry this is not the place to Stop unless you order for pickup. Also don't forget to try their salsa or even take some to go!

The food is really good and the service is friendly. They are very reasonable priced. We like to meet the family here. This restaurant is an older setting could use updating.

The locals say they have the best salsa in the area. I concur. Had three bowls with spouse.
Veggie tostada great. Chile Verde burrito really good.
Big menu selection. Wish I had such an authentic local Mexican joint in my SoCal neighborhood 11

La Casita has been on 9th street since 1988. Family run, the smallish digs make for a nice warm feeling as you sit down to really good Mexican cuisine. We stayed with family friends who just live down the street and they come here all the time. Interesting, the one picture shows the original take out window. Now there are not one, but two additional dining areas that have been added since then. The second has a semi permanent roof above but they added many more booths. One word when you enter the door at La Casita. They DO NOT take credit cards. Kinda a throw back to the old days, only cash will get you a plate on your table. On the wall are pixs of the family and their original Mexican home town. Even their Grandma loved cooking and you see her clutching a chicken as she hugs a grand kid. Not quite five stars in the food department, La Casita is a welcome treasure in an otherwise small, sleepy burg by the Pacific Ocean. Hungry while in Los Osos? Now you know where to head for satisfying that empty feeling in your belly. Enjoy!

The management could make a better attempt to make the diners have a good experience. No one greets you. When you order, be sure to ask for everything you're going to want, because you probably won't see the waiter again. I've wanted a second beer or dessert, but all I get is a check. Oh, and they don't take credit cards so be sure to bring cash.
The food is delicious and includes many unique dishes. The prices are very reasonable. The place is often very crowded, because it's so convenient for locals, so expect a wait on Friday or Saturday nights.
I enjoy the interesting memorabilia, posters, and make-shift architecture. Come for the food.
