If your looking for good, tasty Mexican food, this is the place to go. It is located off Central Ave with easy access to its parking lot. Please, don't be put off if the parking lot looks full. Inside, the restaurant is large enough to hold a big crowd. The prices are relatively inexpensive and the servings are large enough... More

If your looking for a fair priced reliable dab of Mexican flavors where anyone can find something on the menu to order this would be a good reasonably priced place... Loved their tacos el carbon..it is a grilled soft taco with a choice of marinated steak or chicken, if your really hungry la patron is a nice mix of items..... More

From Texas, I am used to some really good Mexican food. This was just so-so, but I did get a free meal because it was my birthday and my friend bought a meal. That was good.

We go to La Casita every time we visit family in the Twin Cities. I love the food, margaritas and atmosphere. Service is generally friendly and accommodating. Try the green sauce (it looks brown, but is called green sauce and is outstanding).

The food is excellent. We went twice in the same week, once on Friday and again on Sunday. It did not hurt that they have free kids meals on Sundays. Both times we were seated right away, but it took a while to place our order. Friday lunch service was better than Sundays lunch service and they were busier on... More

Having eaten here many times in the past. We had never been there when they do happy hour. 3-6 pm. It was very busy, very loud. We skipped the free taco bar and ordered from the menu. The server was prompt and attentive. The food came out fast and was hot and very good. I would have given this trip... More

The food at all Lacasitas is some of the best mexican food in MN. This particular location doesn't give as great of portions as the Roseville store does. It seems like this location attracts a rougher sort of crowd in the bar area. The food is great this location is just a little sub par.

My wife and I ate a excellent me here on January 5th. We have been eating here since we moved to Columbia Heights in 2004. Food and service is always good. Wish the snack area was better stocked at happy hour.

Traveling from out of town, I like to try new places. I drove by here and saw all the cars and thought I would give it a try. I was seated immediately. Server was slow and it took a while for them to take my order. Food was prepared well and tasted very good. It came out quicker than my... More
