Have been going to La Casita for years and have always rated it highly for Mexican street style food. Sadly it has slowly gone down hill each and every change of ownership. To "run out" of staple dishes at the time of opening is not a good sign. We were first in the restuarant, and still the first in the... More

Firstly may i mention that the customer service was fantastic. The entree was yummy. We waited for a long time for our mains of 2 burritos with steak. Wasn't overally flavoursome but nice. Will give it another go.

Ate there for a bday dinner a few nights ago and while the staff were very friendly the food was terrible! Steak smelt and tasted funny and most of the table didn't eat it. Rest of the items on the combo were very bland and at $22 it was SUPER expensive for what it was. I wouldn't go back there... More

Counted 15 times that the waitstaff said no worries...unusual when you are politely thanking them for bring the food. To be fair my partner thought this was better than I did but I thought choice, portion size and flavour all meh. Margaritas fairly tasteless.

Come on a Tuesday for a great deal and yummo Tacos. The pulled pork quesadillas are incredible and are a must try. Great service with no pressure. Just great food.

After reading the good reviews I was keen to try this place - but very disappointed. The service was slow - not enough staff, not well enough trained. Two meals came out well ahead of the other three. The last three meals were cool - obviously sitting there for ages in the kitchen before being delivered to the table. Nachos... More
