We found this truly awesome place out here in the middle of what seems like no place...a couple of blocks from our motel/hotel... I can honestly say it was the best tasting most authentic Mexican food ever!!! The place was small but cozy... awesome service! Ever get off the beaten path...and find yourself in Alpine, Texas....go there! Prices were soooo... More

This place is off the beaten path a bit so you have to look for it once there its worth it the wait staff worked hard to take of a large group during a busy lunch rush. Genuine Tex Mex with a bit of spicy flavor loved the food lots of locals eat there only thing is they are cash... More

Excellent Tex-Mex! Clean, large servings, loved my soft tacos with enchilada sauce. The super nachos were excellent, and the guacamole....yum. Remember to get cash as LaCasia does not take credit cards. This is the only negative about the great little local restaurant.

This is a nice, very small restaurant just off the main drag. Very friendly service and simple, fresh and tasty food. Chips and Homemade salsa provided and the salsa has a little zip. I had enchiladas and the tortillas were fresh and the verde sauce had a nice gentle heat. The restaurant got a little crowded around 4:30, but that's... More

Great little, and it is little, Tex-Mex restaurant in Alpine. It's a few blocks off the main drag and not the fanciest looking place in town, either. However, I have never been disappointed here with any of my selections. It appears to be more of a local hangout than tourist spot, which is always good. Menu is your typical Texas... More

I have been eating here since the early 80's. The consistency in the food quality has stayed. This is a great place in Alpine for Mexican Food

La Casita is a small, casual place located in an old house that's off one of Alpine's side streets. It has a nice rustic vibe and décor, and seems to be a "locals" kind of place. The food is fairly typical, which is to say not particularly noteworthy (either good or bad), though the ingredients seem to be fresh and... More

We found this place by searching Trip Advisor for local Mexican. We were not disappointed. The food was awesome and portions large. I felt it was well worth the money. I would give a 5 star in a heart beat if they accepted credit cards and if they would serve on the front patio.

Off the beaten track. Almost all local cliants. Many cliants are the "working class" looking for good eats. My taco slad was excellent. Prompt service. One of those "let me fill your tea uptake with you" places.

Dropped by La Casita at about 5pm on a Tuesday when many places in Alpine seemed closed. The restaurant is quite basic but the menu has a good selection including some vegetarian choices. On arrival we had a bowl of nachos and some salsa brought to the table. My wife and I had quesadillas which arrived soon after ordering. We... More
