It's so hard to find carnitas the way they should be cooked. Most restaurants in Florida think it's the wet pulled pork that qualifies, but growing up in California I learned the real deal is when it's fried in chunks, preferably in a large copper kettle (yes Olivera Street, I'm talking about you).

This place serves not only great carnitas but also great ceviche.

If you're in the area stop for a bite!

I've eaten here several times over the years, most recently on a visit back to the Dunedin area over the holidays. Casa Tina is always on the list of places to eat. The food is fresh and has tremendous flavor. While chips, guacamole and traditional Mexican dishes are always mainstays for me and done well here, I highly recommend you venture away from the traditional offerings and try the Mole Verde. A sauce made from roasted pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds and green tomatillos - amazing! I have to admit I licked my plate. And on top of the great food and service, there is live entertainment. Downtown Dunedin is very quaint. Take a stroll, shop the local merchants and make sure to stop in at Casa Tina.

Delicious Mexican food! I had the enchiladas en salsa roja, (chili red sauce) and the mole poblano (chocolate chili sauce) it's was about 10 bucks for each dish, and it tasted great. We also ordered the guacamole and chips and two unique drinks. I highly recommend trying this place. It is located in downtown Dunedin and there is a free parking lot across the street.

Do not eat here if you are expecting Tex-Mex style food. Staff was more interested in serving liquor then food.

The meal started poorly with the indifferent attitude of the hostess. It felt like she didn't care whether we ate there or not. Should have left then.

The chips and salsa were good but for a Mexican restaurant, the food was incredibly bland. We ordered the flautas and the chicken filling had no flavor and was basically just shredded chicken with no spices. The other meal was called the starving artist which was supposed to be flour tortillas with a vegetarian fillings. No filling, just tortillas that got filled with the black beans and rice side dishes.

Requests made to the server were ignored and all in all a very disappointing meal. Went to another establishment for Gellato which saved the evening meal wise.
