The albondigas soup and refried beans are good here but the entrees lack flavor and seasonings. Everyone in our party of six agreed that they need to improve the flavor of fajitas, enchiladas and chimichanga. No one finished their entree as it just wasn't appetizing. Mexican food at its blandest.

Out knitting group gets together twice a month. We love coming to LA Casita with the warm and cozy atmosphere. The waiter greeted us as usual with big bowls of chips and freshly made salsa. We also asked for their signature spiced jalepeno/olive oil sauce...so delicious and available for sale. We all ordered the lunch special which included a drink.... More

Wonderful, warm Mexican food! La Casita is a restaurant we always come to when in Idyllwild. The menu offers all the traditional favorites we've come to enjoy. The service was impeccable.

Very nice atmosphere and very friendly wait staff and the food is always good when we get up the mountain. We had the chili rellanos, tacos, and enchiladas in various combo plates this time. Everything arrived hot and everything was good. The jalapeño olive oil sauce is fantastic too!

The food is delicious, the service is GREAT, and since it was a really nice day it was very enjoyable to be able to eat our... More

We visit Idyllwild as often as possible. La Casita Restaurant is generally our first stop upon arriving on the Mountain. We LOVE their food. We have had the enchilada's and the taco's and the nachos! Yum! The prices are reasonable. Margarita's are delicious! During the summer you can sit out on the front patio and enjoy the beautiful weather and... More
