Had shredded beef burrito and chimicanga and both were very good. Should have gotten enchilada style as ours were plain but a good portion size.

Best Mexican food in Casa Grande. A bit different from our New Mexico Mexican food but very tasty. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Can get a bit noisy at times.

Busy place. Food was good. Excellent value. Service was also good. Excellent recommendations from the waiter. This is clearly a local place. The only complaint I had was the que to pay. You pay at the register on the way out and it's slow.

Your usual Mexican fare along with a few American items. Big place, fast service and inexpensive....what's not to like. Even if there's a line you'll be in and out quick.

Best Mexican food in Casa Grande. This place has been around a long time and for good reason. Prices are reasonable, service is great and food is excellent.

This place is fantastic. HAVE to try the fried cheese appetizers...and the chili rejenos here.. Lunch works better if you can do it..as this place is so popular....there is normally a line. WORTH every second of the wait.... Great chips and salsa, too. Can't beat the food...or the value.. ENJOY!!! :)

We have eaten here often! Best Mexican food in town. Prices are very good and you get a lot of meat in their burros. We've tried many items on the menu. They are all very good. A must go see for yourself. Friendly, busy atmosphere. Even if it's busy they seem to get you in quickly. Lunch is ALWAYS packed,... More

The name of MI AMIGO RICARDO appears in the title of another review for a different restaurant--so it does not appear in trip advisor's listing.
We have dined here several times and always found it very good. It is usually crowded so others find it very good in addition to use. I would like to add this restaurant for review. Their phon number is: 520-836-3858 Thanks!
