Best Mexican since La Siesta closed. La Casita the downside...not close enough! The white sauce was amazing, not like that sweet ranch crap that those other places serve. Got the grilled steak burrito. It was covered with queso & pico de gallo with a side of rice & beans. The beans were great. How I've missed actual whole beans in... More

This place is great! The white sauce is one of the best anywhere. Many tried and true dishes and the staff is friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend for a fun meal.

Authentic and the best refried beans ever! Little out of way, but great service. Recommended by friends; real Richmond secret!

Not an impressive joint on the outside--on a busy highway corner-- but the mexican dishes were better than average, if not really original--if you need mexican food, this place will do. The owners are very friendly.

I have been going to this Mexican restaurant for 20 plus years. You might not go in for the first time just looking at it and the location, but you will be missing something delicious. The beef taco salad is my favorite. The homemade chips and red sauce are the best around. There are so many delicious entree's on their... More

Been coming to La Casita since they were in a train car on south side. Really authentic and the new owner didn't change any recipes although a few have been added. Funky atmosphere, great food, okay service but many speak little English. That just makes it more fun to me!

Food, service, ambiance were all fantastic. We spoke with several different people from area who have been dining here for years. It is a short and well worth ride to get here off i95. The dips for the chips are out of this world! We make it a point to base our road trips around eating here. We will def... More

This was our first and last time visiting this restaurant. There was nothing special about the food. It did not taste authentic. I ordered enchiladas and did not like it. When I asked if I could order something else, the waiter rudely asked what was wrong with it. I told him I just didn't like the way it tasted. He... More

The sauces that came with the chips were different from the normal and were very good. The service was good and quick. I got a combination dinner and the rice was almost impossible to chew. The mole' sauce I did not like but that's a personal preference. Try again? Maybe.

My family and I were in Richmond to bury my Dad. When we finished at the cemetery (on a cool rainy September day), we wanted to go to lunch and Googled "Mexican Restaurants" - and La Casita came up. We decided to try it. We were greeted pleasantly and seated comfortably - and the host/manager was delighted to go through... More
