Having moved to the west coast from the Boston suburbs, I haven't been to Casa Romero in at least 10yrs. But when a trip came up and I had a super early flight back home, I arranged to revisit Casa Romero (I had to check...More

Excellent tamale's. The mole enchiladas are awesome. Tried various margaritas all great tasting and potent. The alleyway entrance was interesting. Wasn't sure it was door :) But once you walk in your in for an excellent meal and drinks!

Ok - I suppose that some people could possibly have had some rough experiences. However, even after reading about some of these experiences and being on the lookout for dispassionate waitstaff, crummy food, etc... I experienced NONE of those things. The atmosphere is charming. The...More

Unfortunately the food is not consistent and far from authentic in taste. Its still okay but there's nothing compelling a return - especially when a small glass of soda costs $4.95! C'mon Casa Romero this is just rediculous!

We enjoyed a great dinner at Casa Romero. A very creative and delicious menu. We started with Agave spicy margaritas which were excellent and a terrific chorizo cheese dish. Our entrees were the light tasty fish tacos (talapia), a very good Mole enchilada and the...More

I would give them a call-they are very nice and I am sure will have a ready answer. But I suspect yes. For example, they use corn-based flour, when it is used at all-not wheat-based. There are plenty of options that don't... More
