I've known the owner for many years and Tommy always delivers to please. Both price and quality of food is great, not to mention the affordability! You're in for a feast and never will you be disappointed. It's a very popular place to dine so I recommend reservations!

Salsa, guaco and enchiladas were dreamy! Small place where the locals go,great staff and great service. Salsa was delicious a tell tell sign of a good Mexican restaurant. Only cash is accepted FYI and totally worth it. A little off the beaten path but will return next time.

I think we might have been in an off night because I has heard good things about this place but was very disappointed. There was a long line so we waited only to find out they were out of several things. The food was good once it arrived. The staff was completely overwhelmed by the amount of people and was... More

This town really doesn't offer a lot in the way of inexpensive restaurants. I can't even remember how we found this one. It is in the residential area in a renovated house. Food was excellent and service really good considering that we got the last available table and there were only two waitresses.

As I stated in another review, there are not many places to get good food at a reasonable price and in a pleasant setting in Alpine. Happily, La Casita is a good one. As others have said, it's very popular with the locals--with good reason. The service was excellent, the usual dishes very well done and their variation on nachos... More

Stopped for a late lunch and the Mexican plate was terrific, three enchiladas rice and beans and 2 tacos. Everything was great and the chicken enchiladas were absolutely the best I have ever had. Only regret was I couldn't eat all the food.

We found this truly awesome place out here in the middle of what seems like no place...a couple of blocks from our motel/hotel... I can honestly say it was the best tasting most authentic Mexican food ever!!! The place was small but cozy... awesome service! Ever get off the beaten path...and find yourself in Alpine, Texas....go there! Prices were soooo... More

Excellent Tex-Mex! Clean, large servings, loved my soft tacos with enchilada sauce. The super nachos were excellent, and the guacamole....yum. Remember to get cash as LaCasia does not take credit cards. This is the only negative about the great little local restaurant.

This is a nice, very small restaurant just off the main drag. Very friendly service and simple, fresh and tasty food. Chips and Homemade salsa provided and the salsa has a little zip. I had enchiladas and the tortillas were fresh and the verde sauce had a nice gentle heat. The restaurant got a little crowded around 4:30, but that's... More
