Atmosphere: From the moment you step through the door, La Casita is decorated to give you the feel of being in a romantic Mexican Villa; with murals painted on many of the walls, lush live plants, and this authentic-looking fountain.











































There are several sections to this giant restaurant, room enough to accommodate a couple of hundred.  Everything is decorated so perfectly! I love the natural light that shines down from the large skylight into this room.











































Menu: Start off with complimentary chips & salsa or order a qesadilla, cheese crisp, chile con queso, or Mexi-skins.  If you’re looking for a tradional Mexican plate, La Casita offers a grande burrito, fajita burrito, chimichanga, pollo fundido or shredded beef burrito.  Grilled items include fajitas, carne asada, or grilled chicken breast.  Individual tacos and tamales are sold a la carte.  There are also several combination dinners if you’re looking to try a few different items.

*Several specialty margaritas also available

Price guide: Appetizers $4-8  Burritos $9-10  Combos $8-12

What I ordered:

Started with a Presidente Margarita to go along with the complimentary chips and salsa.  Loved that they use fresh lime juice to make their margaritas, tart but sweet at the same time.  I also like the salsa…not too spicy (3 out of 10), flavored with a spice I couldn’t quite put my finger on…chipotle, possibly?











































I tend to order combination platters at every Mexican restaurant I go to, so that I can try several different things.  This visit I ordered the Macho Platter…mini grilled fajita chicken burrito, shredded beef enchilada, cheese enchilada, a hard shell ground beef taco, refried beans and rice.  Everything was delicious, but my favorite was the shredded beef enchilada.  The beef had great flavor and was so tender!  I couldn’t believe I got all this food for less than $12!












































My companion ordered the three enchiladas combination: cheese, shredded chicken and ground beef with beans and rice.


















Friendly and prompt…we were visiting before the Cinco de Mayo dinner rush, but we literally in and out of the restaurant in less than 35 minutes (although there is never an urgency for customers to leave).


Overall Impression: Great atmosphere and awesome food!

  3. Glad you enjoyed La Casita, John! I haven’t been there since November and it
    is always a treat when I get to go :)

  4. Thanks again for recommending another winner, Kristi. My wife, son, and I just got back and we were extremely satisfied. We had been looking for a Mexican restaurant since we arrived in the Saint Paul area last spring, and after a disastrous outing to Acapulco (the food just isn’t that good) we were about to give up.
    One “Buy One, Get One” coupon, a couple house margaritas on 1/2 price night, a Chimichanga for the wife and the giant Macho Combo you featured above and we have a champion. Looks like we’ve found the replacement for our near weekly Mexican home back in Illinois.
