We enjoyed 1/2 priced margaritas. The fresh chips and homemade salsa were yummy. We all enjoyed our lunches (quesadillas, tacos and combo platters). The service was quick, the restaurant was nicely decorated and clean and the meals are well priced. I would come here again!

Every time I've been it's been great service and good food. Sometimes I'll skip it if the parking lot is too full but otherwise, they do a great job of serving up some great Mexican food.

I'm not a big fan of restaurants that have floors that stick to my feet. That being said, we tried it out for happy hour and some small bites. The margaritas were very good. The happy hour food bar was practically non-existent during our visit,...More

My husband and I ate dinner here late (about 8:30 PM) on a Saturday night. The restaurant was about half full. The service was great and food was delicious. The combo platters (we tried #6 and #8) were generously large and really tasty. We would...More

We arrived in Fridley on a Friday evening and were not familiar with the area so we really didn't know where to head for dinner. La Casita was almost next door to our hotel and the parking lot was full, so we figured this was...More

The La Casita Mexican restaurant on 50th and Central is my favorite! The food is delicious and the wait staff are very friendly and conscientious about refilling your water or soda glass. If you want more chips, how does the food tastes. You feel like...More
