This is a chain restaurant with locations in the lower and high desert. I swore off the low desert locations years ago, but dined at the Yucca Valley location recently, due to someone else's choice. I found it no different than the others. The margaritas are terrible. They taste like they are made with 7-UP. The food is bland and... More

This restaurant has a nice and clean atmosphere with friendly service. It offers many delicious items especially the excellent meatball soup! They serve the most amazing Flautas!!

Everything about this place was good. The service was excellent even during the lunch rush hour. It's a very popular place. We just happened on this spot passing through town. The food is really tasty. I grew up in Southern California and this is some of the best Mexican food I've had. They have a really tasty sauce over the... More

A fairly typical independent Mexican restaurant. Refried beans & rice with every meal, lots of cheese & red sauce on most things. Wife & I both got shrimp dishes & were impressed at the quantity & quality. Would NOT recommend the Sunday brunch.

Salsa was really good. It had enough spice to give it great flavor without leaving the burn in your mouth. Steak tacos were excellent! The steak was cut up into small pieces and I didn't run into any gristle or fat. The shredded beaf was also very tasty. Rice and beans were good too. Overall, I really enjoyed my meal... More

Called into La Casita late afternoon to order dinner for three. The person answering the phone never verified the order nor did the person who checked me out when I got there. Bottom line: I ordered two Yucatan chicken fajitas and .chile relleno along with extra chips which I understood to be $4 additional. When I arrived, there was only... More

Road weary, so ordered take out. You could smell the roasted chillies in the restaurant! Service was super friendly and although we only ordered beans and cheese burritos, it came with chips and 6 kinds of home made salsas! Wish I had had time and appetite to stay for the house fajitas... They went by on a plate sizzling and... More

The food is just average. The servers are efficient but not very personable. It is not a place I would bring guests to, it is mediocre at best.

If you fancy Mexican food, I would highly recommend this place if you are in Yucca Valley. We had chicken tortillas and tacos. Mango Margarita was actually pretty good. Service was quick and the prices very reasonable. Id go back if Im ever in Yucca Valley again.
