Hands down, Mi Casa has the BEST fish tacos in the area! They use nice, good size pieces of Mahi Mahi, always FRESH, never fishy tasting. They have a great menu of traditional Mexican food and great prices! Try the margaritas, all are very tasty....More

Always good. Not the most authentic mexican food, but still good. Sunday brunch is good with skinny margaritas and the chicken enchilada is delicious, filled with moist shredded chicken and LOTS of cheese

You can tell by the packed tables that this is a very, very popular restaurant. Not many restaurants have been around as long as Mi Casa. It is worth going just for the great chips and salsa.
