Campbell Avenue location. I convinced my husband to go for lunch because I remember the Carne Seca was good. It was hot & wet (rather than dry). The enchilada sauce was hot on the cheese enchiladas. The chips were greasy and the salsa was hot. We like flavor, not hot. Service was good, although the server barely spoke English. Hardly noone was in the restaurant, maybe 25 people, but the parking lot was full. People were parking there but going to the other restaurants near by - I can see why.

Casa Molina (Campbell Avenue) has typical American-style Sonora Mexican food, well-prepared and tasty but not particularly healthy with the emphasis on rice, refried beans and cheese. Prices are comparable to similar Mexican restautrants in Tucson The decor is nice, with saltillo tile floors and mission style furniture. Large parties (12+) can be seated. The problem is the dreadfully slow service. We were there recently for a business lunch with a large party (14) in a half-empty restaurant. We were seated promptly but It took almost an hour from the time our entree orders were taken until they began to arrive at the table, and the orders arrived a couple at a time for another 15-20 minutes. Those served first had essentially finished before the final orders arrived. Because of the latter I fault the kitchen, not the serving staff, but the end result is the same for patrons.

Ate here on a visit from Texas on a recommendation. They had a buffet where the food was unidentifiable. I had enchiladas. An immense mound if grease, cheese and lettuce. Worst Mexican food ever. The place also appeared quite dirty. To top it off they had RC Cola. Don't eat here.

There is nothing but praise for the Casa Molina on Campbell N. Mexican food at its best. The Chile Renellos is terrific and their varied menu would take many visits to try everything. Have been there many times and have never been disappointed. Excellent for lunch or dinner. Friendly servic and the beer is always chilled to oerfection. Hioghly recommended.

The Tamales and Fajitas were both very good and the service was good as well. The server was good to help us make sure my wife's selection was Gluten Free.
