“Very good Tex-Mex, and don't miss the bakery...”
Review of Casa Maria

Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 March 2017

Madame and I ventured in to Casa Maria on a rainy March Thursday evening not long ago, having wondered about the place since we moved to the area. Positive comments from a good friend encouraged us, however, and as it turned out we had a quite enjoyable dinner.

The place is clean, friendly, and inexpensive; decor is on the plain side but that's fine with us. And it feels really authentic (we Anglophones were in a decisive minority, a good sign for this sort of restaurant) -- particularly when you get your order. My enchiladas suizas were as good as I've had anywhere, and Madame's two enchiladas (chicken, and cheese, as I recall) were a hit as well. The black beans were really fine; the rice on the enchilada plate was above average in taste. We shared a flan for dessert, and it was unusually rich and sturdy -- I really liked it.

There is a full bar for beer, margaritas (my Presidente 'rita was first-rate), and a few wine offerings (vino, not surprisingly, is not the bar's top priority). Service was friendly and maybe just a little on the slow side, but then the place was doing a brisk business. After dinner we went out through the bakery, where there are lots of temptations; we came home with some sugary _orejas_ that were quite a hit the next day, and some good fudgy sugar candy too.

Casa Maria - Kyle is part of a small chain in this area. Reservations for two are not accepted, but for larger groups I believe they would be -- in any event we were seated immediately. There is a lot of parking on-site; I believe all the major cards are accepted as well. The steady flow of locals suggests that Casa Maria succeeds at pleasing its clientele, in a significantly Hispanic community where Tex-Mex choices abound. We'll definitely return...

Watery posole! My favorite soup at the San Marcos location. Here it was watery, cubed fatty pork and gulp...cardboard chalupa shells. Yuck.
