Always good. Not the most authentic mexican food, but still good. Sunday brunch is good with skinny margaritas and the chicken enchilada is delicious, filled with moist shredded chicken and LOTS of cheese

You can tell by the packed tables that this is a very, very popular restaurant. Not many restaurants have been around as long as Mi Casa. It is worth going just for the great chips and salsa.

We were there at one of the busiest times of the evening. They sat us (a large group) as soon as possible. The food was really good, as was the service. We were served quickly, and drinks were refilled quick. The only downside is the...More
