“Great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

I had the Casita Linda Special which has an assortment of different Mexican items. I honestly cannot pick a favorite, as they were all pretty good! The salsa is tasty, but a bit spicy for me (I like spicy, but have a hard time tolerating it later). The service was excellent. It is not a fancy place by any means, but the restaurant is clean and the food is great. I will definitely come back for more the next time I am in El Paso on business.

Family owned whole-in-the-wall restaurant with authentic Mexican food and friendly, reliable service. Super chile relleno!

“They have their own trademark flavor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Casita Linda is a restaurant I've eaten at for many years. It's a comfortable family restaurant with affordable prices and very good food. The interesting thing is that it has it's own trademark flavor that sets it apart from other Mexican restaurants. I'll explain.

When you have enchiladas in El Paso, some are better than others, but they all seem to taste similar. But Casita Linda's red sauce, with it's hint of cumin, and the onion (optional) in the enchiladas sets it apart from the rest of the competition. Their ground beef tacos taste like the meat just came off a barbeque grill, which of course it didn't. Even their excellent salsa tastes different from the competition. The same can be said for their guacamole, which is among the very best I've eaten anywhere.

This is definitely a place to visit if you're traveling through the city. And a great place to bring the family if you're a local.

“Best Mexican Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

Best Mexican food in El Paso for my money. Plenty of choices and great service team. A family managed and home cooked Mexican food specialty restaurant. Sopapillas are a constant great dessert. . . leave room for your slice of heaven. The only comparison I could make is from a restaurant I visited for plenty of years in El Paso as a youth (10 yrs+) and Casita Linda is better!

“Great food and good service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

I can't help but going to this place when in El Paso. On Wednesday they have an all you can eat plate that can't be beat for $7.00. Needless to say, you can't just eat one plate. Good salsa and chips and great service. Great tacos and even better green enchiladas. Always a pleasure to go here.
