The food is not bad. Pretty standard Mexican restaurant fare for Texas. They nickel and dime you for every little add-on. I ordered a salad and asked for a side of pico de gallo and that was an extra dollar. Cheese was extra also. The grilled chicken salad ends up costing about 15 or $16.

We've been there several times because there's not much else in the area. The staff is quite friendly but not overly attentive. I only give it to for cleanliness. Seems kind of grungy in the older part of the restaurant.

Great Tex-Mex that you can count on from day to day. The service may be a bit slow at times but it gives you that added time to enjoy your food.

The chips are stale and the Tex Mex is poor to average in quality. Considering the location, the price are extremely high when you consider the restaurant is housed in a renovated roadside diner attached to an ancient motel in a small town, Mi Casita is definitely are not passing on their low overhead to customers, they could get away with that if the food was great but it is not. Drive 15 miles further east to Mount Pleasant and try Two Senoritas.

I have enjoyed eating at Mi Casita for several years, untll after their renovation. They have changed their chips, not as thin and crispy, and the taste is different. I will keep trying to find a favorite on the menu, but right now, I am disappointed.
Service is still excellent, and prices are right on.
