Great filling food. Atmosphere is wonderful. Have gone there several times with friends. Nachos are plenty. El Grande Burrito is fantastic. A nice place to hang out with friends.

The service staff are great! Shout out to my man, Jimmy! Pollo Fundido is never a bad choice, but I recommend it with the pork.

We were looking for a nice restaurant after an appt in the northern suburbs. We went to La Casita and were delighted. Charming decor with lovely stained glass windows, beautiful lamps. The food was very good. I had their Mexican chicken salad with roasted peppers...More

We enjoyed 1/2 priced margaritas. The fresh chips and homemade salsa were yummy. We all enjoyed our lunches (quesadillas, tacos and combo platters). The service was quick, the restaurant was nicely decorated and clean and the meals are well priced. I would come here again!

This restaurant is a place I frequented way back when I lived in Minneapolis and it was as good as I remembered. Food is very well done. Happy accident that it was special price day for their margaritas. Staff is great and have been there...More
