“Margaritas very disappointing”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

We first ordered the house Margaritas. Two small glasses arrived, loaded with ice. They were very sour. Very disappointing. Wait staff were wonderful. Setting outside was excellent, very relaxing. Would have stayed longer if they served the more traditional sized magaritas!

“Best I ever had !!”
Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

Wow. I waited 10 minutes tops to get my food on a Saturday night. I ordered three tacos two fish and one steak, and let me tell you it was amazing!! I've been to a bunch of Mexican restaurants and this is by far the best. Staff was excellent and polite. Food was quick and yummy. The location is amazing so convenient. The interior design was extraordinary for a Mexican restaurant. This exquisite spot has a decent size bar, lots of space outside to eat (Water dishes out side for your dog) wonderful idea. I recommend this to everyone.

“A Work in Progress”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Mi Casa, the new Mexican, has a great location in Stowe, sited in the much-missed Frida's space on Main Street. However, that doesn't automatically make it a destination like Frida's was, and it has quite a way to go to get to that place. The positives: the freshly painted interior has expanded to include what was a toy shop by the front entrance, now serving as a cozy lounge-cum-seating area; there's an extensive beverage menu featuring an interesting range of Margaritas; and the staff is friendly and earnest. The not-so-positives: the food is just okay, and the servers need better training. We tried the queso fundido appetizer, which had more peppers than melted cheese in the modestly-sized serving of dip, leaving us with a large bowl of chips and little to dip them in. We then sampled a variety of the soft-shelled tacos. The chicken and pulled pork tacos were all right though not great; the skirt steak taco was tasty but difficult to eat due to the size of the steak slices (smaller would be better); and the duck taco contained a large, sharp needle of duck bone that luckily was noticed and removed before causing harm. Now the part about better training needed: we asked for the spicy ingredients of the tacos to be served on the side at the suggestion of our server, but when our food arrived, this had not been done, and she seemed not to notice. In addition, she was unable to distinguish the pork and chicken tacos from one another and had to take them back into the kitchen to have the chef identify them for her. All of this is correctable, and I hope things improve, because Stowe needs a good Mexican place in town.
