Every time I meet my winter friends in Palm Springs this is the first place we go after my plane lands. You can sit inside or out and just relax. I ordered The guacamole and it was as good as I have heard. We had several rounds of margaritas to get our evening going. In the past the food was... More

We were told by a local at one of the historical sites that this was the place to go for authentic Mexican food. We love Mexican, so were greatly anticipating dining here. The margaritas were satisfactory but nothing special. The highlight of the food had to be the salsa; it was very good and the chips nice and warm. My... More

Recognized as one of the top 50 Hispanic restaurants in the US. Extensive menu of which one can choose to create their own plate. If you do not feel like doing that, there are multiple choices from burritos, tacos, enchiladas, tortas, salads, soup and beverages

This was an excellent find. The place we were going to wasn't open. I had fajitas and the peppers and onions were perfect. Mango margarita was also a treat. Kids enjoyed their meals to.

The place is not really fancy. But the food is good. They are usually crowded, and service can be a minor problem. I got the impression that they were hawking drinks - -asking frequently if you would like another drink -- even when my drink glass was full. But the food is good and that is the most important thing.... More

Simple but very delicious Mexican food. Don't go there if you are looking for Americanized-Mexican food/drinks!

A visit to the desert is not complete without a visit to the Original Las Casuelas. Located in downtown Palm Springs, it is an oasis of authenticity and tradition. Warm decor, good service and delicious food. And the best margaritas. I usually order cheese enchaladas love all their food. Constant supply of crispy chips and salsa.

We been to this place twice now, on two separate trips to Palm Springs. We had and loved the "Combinacions Mexicanos" dishes so you can try the different kinds of cooking served at this family restaurants.Great margaritas and amazing guacamole.

We always visit the original restaurant in downtown Palm Springs. Mostly locals go here, and the service is friendly and fast. As Mexican Food aficionados, we find this restaurant near the top for cheese enchiladas (the sauce is outstanding) and for creamy guacamole.
