A tired old place that hasn't suffered any interior upgrades for quite a long time. Decor is old and everything seems to fit perfectly with that theme. Good thing that the food is exceptional which explains the place being so busy. Staff were very attentive and energetic to meet our needs, wishes, and wants. La Casita closes at 9:00pm so... More

Family owned and run, consistently good, usually fairly quick, affordable prices and the chips are fresh.

Everything is good here. Always. Family owned. Salsa is to die for. The chips are always great. They do take out marvelously. I would recommend this little Mexican restaurant to anybody!

Authentic Mexican food that is worth the trip. Handmade fresh salsa everyday and fresh homemade chips are the best around. Try to burritos and you will not go away hungry.

Went there on a Thursday. Not crowded. The service was very poor and inattentive. Waited almost 20 minutes for someone to even come take our order. The restaurant was half empty. The waitress seemed less than happy to be there. Food came about 30 minutes later. The plates were cold. Food was barely warm (cheese wasn't even melted). Beans were... More

Being native Californians, we eat Mexican food all the time. The salsa at La Casita is one of the best our family has tasted. The food was good, but not great. I had the fajitas & was surprised when it didn't come out in a skillet. Something we didn't know until we were already sitting down: They only take CASH... More

This is a very small and cozy place with good food and a very friendly staff. It is a CASH ONLY restaurant , and we had no idea about that. I handed my credit card to the cashier, and he told me "cash only." Oh no! Our bill was $21.12, and after scraping all my change and some bills together,... More

I eat here at least once a week. This is the first restaurant I go to after a long vacation. Scratches the itch.
