Great food, wonderful margaritas and fantastic service. Nothing fancy about this local restaurant but well worth a visit.

Guess we are not eating here. Tried to call a few times to make a reservation or see if I needed a reservation. Phone just rings and rings and then goes to voice mail. Guess we won't be eating here as to start with not answering the phone is poor customer service.

I stopped here on a whim one evening. First time. The restaurant is a bit smaller than I anticipated (a dozen tables or so?), but provided both a bar and a dining room. Has the feel of a family restaurant...a comfortable place to have dinner or lunch. It was a quiet evening (I arrived about 5:30pm); no one in the... More

First off I would like to say that the food was good. But, walking into this restaurant at 5pm to find only 1 other table occupied should bring concerns. Hostess that sat us was our waitress also. Not to friendly or welcoming. The reason for that might be because of the lack of customers. Looking over the menu we saw... More

We have been going to Mi Casa since it opened over 16 years ago. It has really gone down hill. They charge you extra for every little thing. You only get one basket of chips and salsa for 5 people. Our basket had barely over 5 chips in it, that were stale. We ordered guacamole and chips and there were... More

This is defiantly Indian food trying to be Mexican only because you have chips and salsa doesn't make it Mexican get original Mexican food or change your name everything has pepper like crazy and the rice is like Mediterranean rice not Mexican rice

We were headed to the nearby chain restaurant for a Mexican food fix and spotted the Mi Casa sign not a block away. At a chain, you can usually know what you will get, but what if Mi Casa is more authentic? So we went to Mi Casa and were not disappointed. There is a small bar area with several... More

The food is still very good, but smaller portions. The salsa is top notch and can be eaten by a spoon. The restaurant needs a makeover

This has been my go-to restaurant for Mexican food in Ellicott City since it opened. Food and hospitality have always been reliably good, and it's a little quieter than its 2 nearest, long-time competitors along Route 40. So when a friend of mine and I decided to celebrate National Margarita Day in late February, I suggested we go to Mi... More
