As I stated in another review, there are not many places to get good food at a reasonable price and in a pleasant setting in Alpine. Happily, La Casita is a good one. As others have said, it's very popular with the locals--with good reason. The service was excellent, the usual dishes very well done and their variation on nachos... More

Stopped for a late lunch and the Mexican plate was terrific, three enchiladas rice and beans and 2 tacos. Everything was great and the chicken enchiladas were absolutely the best I have ever had. Only regret was I couldn't eat all the food.

We found this truly awesome place out here in the middle of what seems like no place...a couple of blocks from our motel/hotel... I can honestly say it was the best tasting most authentic Mexican food ever!!! The place was small but cozy... awesome service! Ever get off the beaten path...and find yourself in Alpine, Texas....go there! Prices were soooo... More

Excellent Tex-Mex! Clean, large servings, loved my soft tacos with enchilada sauce. The super nachos were excellent, and the guacamole....yum. Remember to get cash as LaCasia does not take credit cards. This is the only negative about the great little local restaurant.

This is a nice, very small restaurant just off the main drag. Very friendly service and simple, fresh and tasty food. Chips and Homemade salsa provided and the salsa has a little zip. I had enchiladas and the tortillas were fresh and the verde sauce had a nice gentle heat. The restaurant got a little crowded around 4:30, but that's... More

Great little, and it is little, Tex-Mex restaurant in Alpine. It's a few blocks off the main drag and not the fanciest looking place in town, either. However, I have never been disappointed here with any of my selections. It appears to be more of a local hangout than tourist spot, which is always good. Menu is your typical Texas... More

I have been eating here since the early 80's. The consistency in the food quality has stayed. This is a great place in Alpine for Mexican Food

La Casita is a small, casual place located in an old house that's off one of Alpine's side streets. It has a nice rustic vibe and décor, and seems to be a "locals" kind of place. The food is fairly typical, which is to say not particularly noteworthy (either good or bad), though the ingredients seem to be fresh and... More

We found this place by searching Trip Advisor for local Mexican. We were not disappointed. The food was awesome and portions large. I felt it was well worth the money. I would give a 5 star in a heart beat if they accepted credit cards and if they would serve on the front patio.

Thank Mukoy
