Made reservations, got a lovely table for nine by the fire, near the two guitar players. The waiter brought our cocktails and took our orders. After telling us several times the kitchen was backed up we began to get concerned. Two hours later, the place has started to empty out and someone comes to ask us if we still want... More

We stopped in for happy hour in the afternoon, and enjoyed the cold margaritas, hot chips and salsa and an order of nachos, which were excellent. We have eaten here for dinner and it is a festive place that is enjoyable.

Enjoyed a very pleasant lunch on the patio. We shared a number of appies for lunch and my friend ordered the grapefruit marg, which she said was absolutely delish. Sorry that I was driving and had to stick with club soda. Service was good and super friendly.

We stopped in here for dinner on Sunday evening and had no trouble getting a table on the patio with some shade. The staff was very friendly, attentive and helpful - even with a drink recommendation (try the Patron Grapefruit Margarita...yum!), and we were very happy with our choice of chicken fajitas and chicken tortilla soup for dinner. Also should... More

First impression for me was the authentic Mexican decor at this restaurant--it definitely sets the the right mood for an enjoyable meal! Service was top notch here and the food was awesome. Cost for our lunch including two entrees and three margaritas was about $70 with a generous tip. The complimentary chips and salsa were very good also! Would definitely... More

Stopped by with hubby. Sat in the bar area. The service was slow. The happy hour menu was terrible. Very little food choices. The chips and salsa were the best we've had in the desert. The chips were served warm and the salsa was fresh. My happy hour margarita was good. We did not order food from the happy hour... More

This is a well established and excellent Mexican restaurant in the heart of La Quinta. Fresh ingredients and a wonderful menu and wait staff. Great atmosphere with a fantastic happy hour. We have made this our favorite place to eat when we visit the Palm Springs/Desert area. The Happy Hour starts at 3:00PM and into the evening and the margarita's... More

I absolutely love Las Casuelas and love even more the fact that when I'm staying in Palm Desert or Indian Wells, I don't have to drive all the way into Palm Springs just to enjoy this wonderful restaurant! There refried beans are the best I've ever tasted from any Mexican restaurant, bar none and my s/o loves their drinks. Happy... More

This place is one of the several Las Casuelas establishments in the SoCal desert areas. Convenient location, great decor and fantastic food selections. The restaurant offers an extended late "happy-hour" with substantial discounts on food and drinks in the cantina area. Worth checking out!
