First thing I feel compelled to share is this is a cash only restaurant. They do accept local personal checks but no credit cards. With that said the staff was friendly, the food and prices average.

Tiny restaurant with fresh & tasty Mexican food and good service. Menu has something for everybody (vegetarian, kids) plus traditional home- cooked Mexican meals. Love the chips & fresh salsa! (Served with meals). Partial to their Chili Verde & especially their breakfast version (Tejanos) served with eggs.Have eaten here for years & its always a treat we look forward to.

La Casita is one of the two best Mexican restaurants in the Morro Bay-Los Osos area. Family run, it caters to numerous people from Mexico and Central America, and also to its many Anglo customers. Service is friendly, and although it is not a large restaurant it has several long tables which are great for extended family lunches and dinners

This small place is lacking in decor, but serves wonderful food. The taste is authentic, the portions hardy and the prices very reasonable. A must visit when you are in or near Los Osos.

Our first choice whenever we're in town. Great food and a decent, if limited, selection of draft beers. Pleasant atmosphere (sit near the fire place if it's a cool day), friendly staff.

We've been there roughly 30 times or so. Have never been dissapointed. If it was up to my wife we would eat here every other night. Most authentic tasting Mexican food for miles around. Looking forward to the next 30 times.
