Great authentic Mexican food. Always very busy for dinner time but service is excellent and you won't notice how busy they are. The day we visited every table was taken. If you have to wait, it's worth it.

Lunch at Casa Corona this last week- and possibly a big mistake, we elected for the buffet. Bland and below average food even though the selection was good. Three of us and all had the same opinion. Better options to be had. The staff is friendly and prompt but the food is a no show. Surprised the overall rank on... More

As we walked into the dining room three employees greeted us with my husband's nickname. After we were seated they all came by to personally say hello. My Cadillac Margarita was terrific, as were the fajitas and carnitas. We used to live in Ridgecrest but moved away six years ago. Felt like we never left! Enjoy genuine Mexican food, great... More

My husband and I came here because we missed mexican food. I ordered steak ranchero. I asked the waiter if it was spicy and was told that it's mild. But found out it was not mild for me... I guess I should have requested the sauce to be on the side. The steak tasted good though. My husband ordered the... More

I've eaten chile rellenos at many Mexican restaurants - this was the worst ever. It tasted like it had been frozen and reheated. The whole meal was less than satisfactory as was my husband's. We were surprised that it had a fairly high rating on Trip Advisor. We were very disappointed.

The hotel recommended Casa Corona not because it was one the better restaurants in Ridgecrest but the better choice of a Mexican restaurant that we inquired about. Actually, Casa Corona was the highlight of our stay in Ridgecrest. And at best it is average. As noted in a previous review it is dark and the wait staff was not overly... More

Nice family run Mexican restaurant which was very accommodating to our group of 25. Food was tasty and served quickly by friendly staff. Big beers and spicy rellenos made for a great night. I would definitely visit again when in town for business.

Well priced and varied menu with lots to satisfy most eaters! Had to wait a little bit for service but once it started, food arrived very quickly and was excellent. Outstanding value for money, spacious and pleasant surroundings. Would definitely go again.

Ok. Typical dinner food. No taco Tuesday specials. Rather bland. Dark atmosphere. Wait staff not real friendly. Slow service. Margaritas were not the best even though we asked for top shelf tequila.
