New Mexican food takes some getting used to. The first time I ate here I didn't like it, but I came around after a while. The food here is kind of hit or miss. The chile rellenos and enchiladas are fantastic. Some of the other stuff isn't so great. The salsa is really good but may be too hot for... More

The last 3 times we have gone has been bad. This time Service was horrible, all the waitresses where sitting down eating and the hostess was at the counter eating. Cheese wasn't even melted on the food (never melted). There was hair in the beans one of the four plates. I will not go back for another round.

Went here for lunch. Simple authentic menu that tasted great. Gotta have the salsa! Made inhouse and was wonderful!! Seating is simple and not a fancy overpriced place. A must try if you want a good meal.

We were more than excited to find out that they would be delivering to be left with pure disappointment! The inside of the plate looked destroyed when we received it and the meals were extremely cold! To top it all off we were missing half of our order and when the driver went back to get the right stuff he... More

I had the best Chile Rellenos at this little place! Stuffed with beef and cheese, covered in a mils green sauce. Very nice!. My wife (who doesn't do spicy) had Nachos which were acceptable (kinda hard to mess up that simple a dish). Almond joy cake was incredibly yummy! Total bill with tip around 30$.

First of all I have had better Mexican food. I ordered my combo plate with red sauce. Next time I will try the green. The red ruined my meal. It was too spicy. The tamale was not good at all. The staff was frindly and the portions were big.

We enjoyed our dinner at Mi Casita. Others have said this is their favorite Mexican restaurant. It was good but not my personal favorite. The service was excellent and there was plenty of food.

We were directed here by the desk staff at the Comfort Suites, and boy, was it ever a good place. Although Mi Casita is nothing fancy, you can get authentic New Mexico cuisine here at an excellent price. I judge places by their enchiladas, and when I was given a choice of heat in my chile, I knew I was... More

The food here was decent, but nothing spectacular. Same thing for the environment. They have a decent choice of Mexican foods. The green chili enchiladas were average.
