Enjoying a stay in Tlaquepaque and had to return to Casa Fuerte. Delicious food. Mole is riquisimo. Loved the tortilla soup. Chile relleno had a little too much dough, I'm not used to it that way. But, the chile and cheese were perfect. I left the dough on the plate. We ordered several different dishes with cheeses, and the cheeses... More

After a busy morning of sightseeing, our guide recommended Casa Fuerte for lunch. What a wonderful experience we had! From the delicious margaritas to thr fresh guacomole to the fantastic main courses, it was a wonderful lunch. And we had the most attentive and helpful wait staff. We highly recommend lunch here!

We visited Casa Fuerte on a tour about 12 years ago. Unfortunately we did not write the name down and could only recall the pine branches and glorious smell upon entering. My husband remembers the best ice tea he has ever tasted. We finally revisited the area and by chance recognized the restaurant. Wow how awesome! We had dinner and... More

Right from the moment you walk into the restaurant, you know you're in a special place. Lovely decorations, very Mexican, beautiful old house converted into a restaurant. Spacious, so you are not stumbling into other guests when walking around or sitting down. Food is delicious- and some dishes are quite unique, won't find them anywhere else. Have been there several... More

Great place to take first time to Mexico visitors. Its Mexico at its finests setting. However food is not outstanding so does not live up to its high Tripadvisor rating. It lives on its location

After a fun day of shopping on Independence pedestrian street, we stopped at Casa Fuerte. We all ordered their Tamarin Marguerita. Not to sweet-not to sour. Rimmed with chili salt. Do not miss this Marguerita. It was the best I have ever had!

Nice restaurant with good food. I did order chiles rellenos and really did not think they were great, but my dinner companions liked their dishes.

I went with my family and friends on the last Friday of 2016. We went to the bathroom to wash our hands and found out there was no water. Bathrooms were dirty of course. We ordered the entrée surprise of Tlaquepaque and several minutes later they said they did not have it. The cecina was horrible, old and not crispy.... More

Casa Fuerte T, Gerente at Casa Fuerte, responded to this review

The restaurant "Casa Fuerte" offers an apology for the service of that day, because we had technical problems with the water, something that was not in our hands. We tried to fix it as soon as possible and we made it. About the tips, the restaurant works with ethics, respect and honorability, all employees are fundamental, they receive the 100%... More

We enjoyed our meal - national and regional dishes on the menu. Great and friendly service. Can't beat the location - in the middle of Ave Independencia.
