Reviewed February 12, 2013

We were driving back into SC from the Gila Wilderness, ravenous, and googling restaurants on the iPhone, and Mi Casita came up. Turns out we were driving RIGHT past the road, so we did a quick U-turn and found it tucked away in a sort of random location- I can see how it would be difficult to find without a googlemap. Anyway, it was close to their closing time (2:00 I think), so we asked if they were still serving, and the servers were very friendly and reassured us they were, and to make ourselves comfortable. It was very comfortable, but the food was pretty unremarkable. For all the excellent reviews, we expected something great, and it was really just comfort food. Not bad, not great. Fast. Great service, though. Informal atmosphere.

A little hard to find at first, but just ask a local for directions. Once you go there, you will find good, hot food with lots of local color. Check on hours before you go.

Mi Casita is hard to find but every local knows where it is. That's because it's the real thing - at lunch time this place is packed. The food is good, portions generous, service prompt and the atmosphere homey. Well worth a visit!

This restaurant caters to a specific type of person. If you are searching for a generic bland Mexican restaurant where you can eat with the other tourists... Then this is NOT the place for you.

However, if you are looking for authentic Mexican food.. like to eat with the locals... enjoy a unique non-standard atmosphere... and seeking a restaurant off the beaten path... Then this IS the place for you.

I ordered the combination plate and my wife ordered the taco salad. I thought the food was great with a nice spicy heat to it. My wife said that it was the best Mexican meal that she ever had. The food was promptly served. The waitress was friendly and efficient. The atmosphere was wonderful. It would be difficult to find a better Mexican restaurant anywhere.
