If you want to experience dry mexican food, grumpy and unfriendly bar-tending and service, aggressive geriatric crowd ready to pick a fight and crazy ownership and management, Molly's La Casita has it all. The only two good things about the place are top shelf margaritas and their acceptance of gay and lesbian parties. This place may scare even a liberal redneck! Please proceed with caution.

The Margaritas are a perfect blend of sweet and sour and tequila, half and half, frozen, on the rocks or even frozen with a sangria swirl. Starting off I'd suggest the queso white cheese dip or maybe the 7layer dip or Kelly's bean dip. Their are so many choices for entrees but looking around you will find home made tamales in several diffrent preparations and unique chile rellanos that are to die for, as well as the original snapper or fish tacos. Many variations of enchiladas and and 7 homemade sauces to choose from and of corse you must try the refried beans as they are better than anywhere else. If you can't decide on anything the sizzling fajitas are always great option. Everything is made to order so enjoy a margarita and friends and relax!!

Best margaritas, hands down, north of mexico. Food is alright, but everything tastes better with their excellent margaritas.

Molly's is a unique restaurant with a great cuisine. Their beans and chips and dip are the signature items that lead into their entrees. Good service and the prices are good for the pocketbook. Expect to pay $12-20 for the supper menu. Good place to take friends and customers.

I fell in love with Molly's La Casita the first time I ate there over 15 years ago. Since then I've eaten there as regularly as possible as I am irrevocably addicted to their refried beans. I won't even eat beans at other mexican restaurants, they're so pallid and tasteless compared to Molly's. My company agrees with me about the outstanding quality of Molly's food, and margaritas, as we hold all of our farewell lunches/dinners there when one of our employees moves onto another position. Make sure you try out their queso dip as a starter, it's fabulous and nearly as addicting as their beans. !
