We had a nice lunch here. Though the menu suggested routine American-style Mexican food, there is a world of difference between standard commercial and home-cooked food. We ordered two chimichangas - a green chili and a machaca. When they arrived we were a little surprised - they were good-sized, but not the gigantic productions one often sees. Actually, that proved to be a very good thing. These were hand-made home-cooked chimis. The green chili was good... and the machaca was great!

We ordered the sugar-cinnamon sopapillas for dessert, and were again a bit surprised. Typically we look for airy puffs. These are much more substantial and appear to be made with whole wheat flour. Much "breadier". Not bad - just different. Typically left over sopapillas are not much, but these held up to refrigeration and reheating in the microwave a day and a half later! Speaking of which - the leftover chimis didn't get re-heated... they were great cold. That says a lot about how NOT greasy they were and how excellently the machaca was spiced.

Not overly flavorful, had chicken flour tortilla... very sparse and dry chicken. Person who took our drink order ran by!

We happened upon this place driving home through Globe. We were pleasantly surprised. La Casita Cafe chicken tacos were the best chicken tacos we've had in a long time- really fresh salsa as well. We'll definitely seek this place out next time.

The La Casita is one of those local, small town restaurants that has been around more than 50 years and is going just a strong today as it was back in the early 1970s. There is a reason for this. People demand what it serves!

While living in Globe back in the 1970s, it was a family tradition to gather ourselves at the La Casita on Sunday after church with friends and spend the next two hours enjoying their fabulous Mexican dishes. Two hours later it was off siesta! This was a necessity as it was virtually impossible to do anything else by nap after a La Casita lunch.

Try the chile relleno and any of their combination dishes. They make a great green chilie cheese crisp and their burritos are as big as a Volkswagen.

Enjoy!

I was referred to la Casita by a local Fire Investigator. He was not wrong, the food a Chicken burrito was the best I ever had. Being lunch time the place was jammed and the waitress apologized for the long wait. I will definitely go back.
