I heard good things of this restaurant but when we sat down to eat there on Sunday I thought we were never going to leave. It was almost an hour before we saw an appetizer and another hour before we saw our dinner. No refills were offered on our soft drinks and our waiter never owned up to the fact... More

Came in for dinner on a Thursday night at around 8 and had a much better experience with the food this time around. We had a Groupon deal, which included an appetizer, two entrees, and two soft drinks. To start, we ordered the Papas Rellena (fried mashed potato balls filled with beef picadillo). I loved these! They tasted like rice... More

I really enjoyed the food. Very flavorful and tasty. And really inexpensive. If you are looking for something a little different, this is a good stop!

This place is too expensive for ordinary Puerto Rican food. Small portions and the food is adequate for the expensive price. I paid a total of $80 for two people. The $11 shrimp ceviche had two very tiny shrimp. Too funny, I thought they forget the order until I was told that's it :-).

Our party of 4 came into Me Casa for lunch on a Saturday at around 12:30. There were only two other tables dining. The place is small both on the inside and the outside. From the outside, it doesn't look like it's a restaurant, so it's easy to miss. To start, we had their empanada platter, which comes with your... More

We've been to Me Casa for family gatherings as well as with friends. Authentic delicious food with very nice presentation. BYOB is always a plus and the service is great.

First of all I would not classify this as a restaurant. When you see a floor cleaning mop and bucket and a bunch of brown boxes of plastic spoons in front of your dining table, that's not a restaurant for me. Service is slow. Really really slow. We were 2 and we ordered 1 started and 2 entrees. How difficult... More

This was our first visit to ME Casa. The restaurant is on the lower floor and it is pretty small. However, it is charming with Spanish music, the tables had linens and the place has a cozy feel. The waiter was fantastic, very personable. Halfway through our dinner the waiter's shift was over and a second waiter took his place... More

Description
So good! I live across the street from this place and was hungry so I decided to check it out with my boyfriend. The place that was there before was not good at all. It is a new restaurant with new owners. Boy was I pleasantly surprised. The appetizers Empanadas and trio of Monfongos are freaking to die for. I am not of Puerto Rican decent but I have seen the light of what I have been missing. The Entrees were equally as tasty, my boyfriend had the pork and I had the chicken with Aji Verde sauce. So yummy , the owner calls this his money sauce, which could not be any further from the truth. I know online their menu was like family style but that is a typo they serve single entrees. I was a chef for over ten years before I got into food sales. I know my food! This place is a diamond in the rough excellent.
