Casita Bowl is delicious. Casita's is dog friendly with covered outdoor seating. It's very casual; you have to stand in line to order, but the food is brought to your table. Margarita was good, but a little sweet to my taste.

I can confirm why this restaurant has high marks. I prices are very reasonable and flavors are wonderful. I had the beef taco and chicken taco. I needed no sauce because the meat was very flavored and seasoned. It even had a little heat to...More

Have eaten there, both in their previous setting and now on Central Avenue. The food is fine, but not outstanding.. They face competition from eateries like Red Mesa, and the Mexican food trucks. Not worth the journey.

It still surprises me to see folks lined up out the door at lunch time most days. Totally worth it. Salad with mild chicken add grilled vegetables. Delicious! Friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere.

Found this place on TA and have been looking for some decent Mexican food. Nice set up and a fairly authentic feeling. The cooks were spot on. We had the camarones, barbacoa, and carne asada tacos. Also had the chorizo torta and some guacamole/salsa with...More

Went to Casita Taqueria because TripAdvisor listed it has #1 of Mexican restaurants. It rapidly became clear this was being overly generous. First, the ambience: Take an old gas station and put a third of the tables (mostly plastic tables and chairs) inside it with...More

We've been returning to this restaurant for a few years now (since finding it on TripAdvisor) and the food is always good, and there's usually a line of locals which is a good sign.
