We enjoy the food and the friendliness of the servers. The albondigas is seasoned so well, as is their salsa.

This Mexican restaurant is in an average Rowland Height strip mall. The food is just all right. I had a rojo enchilada one time with old but not rotten tasting chicken It was covered with too much cheese. Another time I had an uninspired salmon plate. The service is also just average. The prices are okay, not cheap but not... More

Food is average in taste and amount, no greasy, no salty. But, it is pricey compared to other Mexican restaurant Takes long time to get order ready. The ambient is nice, but servers are not friendly.

Always good food and service. One of the oldest Mexican Restaurants in the area. Family run. Nice to have this type of place.

I've been going to Casa Alvarez since it opened. The food served is from family recipes. The family's son still oversees the operation, since mom and dad retired back to Mexico. When the son is present, the food is closer to the original recipes. Besides many combo plates, there are a wide variety of dishes. The service is usually very... More

We have been going to Casa Alvarez for at least 20 years. It has always been one of our favorite restaurants. It was managed by a wonderful man named Javier, but a few years ago, family problems surfaced. He no longer manages the place and now other family members have taken over. What does this have to do with a... More
