I have eaten here before and while the food is decent it is nothing to rave about. What particularly irks me is that you pay for your coffee by the cup.

We came to Mi Casita, because they opened early and we could take our time before we had to head off to the airport to catch a flight.

The customer service is good, fast and you will enjoy good and fresh food and isn't expensive. Also, youcan eat breakfast when other fast food doesn't bring you a complete breakfast at 11:00am.

This place serves great local favorites! The asapoa and Morongo are delicious! Also have fun frozen drinks to cool off. I have not had breakfast there but they serve it and it is super cheap! Definitely worth the stop!
