I love Las Casuelas Terraza. It has been there forever and is a must do for me whenever I visit the desert. The chili rellenos are very good.

Las Casuelas or El Mirasol. El Mirasol is more local and less touristy.

I was not impressed with Las Causuelas and I found El Mirasol only okay. I do like Blue Coyote downtown, more Tex-Mex and more upscale. (I really miss La Palapa!)

Las Casuelas or Blue Coyote are good.

If you get down to Indio,Macarios.Its been there forever.Mariachis play at your table.Alot like Mexico.

There used to be a tiny taco shop between a gas station and grocery store near PS high school.An old lady made tortillas over a barbeque grill in back.The tacos were awesome.Like Baja!

They got the boot when they remodeled the property.

It's not a hole in the wall, but we never miss the El Adobe Grille at the La Quinta Resort. We love the table side made Guacamole and they make a great chicken mole'.

Mariachi music most nights in the huge fire pit patio area overlooking the beautiful Santa Rosa Mountains and gorgeous grounds. Make reservations for outside seating.

Hi jennyj74;

We had great food during our five night stay in Palm Springs - except for the dinner we had at a Mexican Restaurant called Maracas, right downtown PS.

Three of us in the party had a main courses we thought was just so and so, and one dish was not good at all (the ribs).

So - my tips is more like "wouldn't choose that one again".

Correction: I now highly recommend Las Casuelas! A few years ago we tried Las Casuelas Nueva in Rancho Mirage and did not like it. I made the mistake of assuming the other "Las Casuelas" were the same even though I know they are different owners. We were in PS last week and tried the real Las Casuelas downtown and WOW! what a difference....loved it! Loved it so much we went back a few days later....it's now my favorite Mexican place in PS.

We went to Las Casuelas Quinta last week on a friends recommendation. Food, drinks atmosphere was exceptional. And they have a great duo playing in the bar. We'll be back.

Great little "hole in the wall" is Guacamole's on Sunrize. It's a small place in a strip center. Great down home food. There's also a bread shop in the same center.
