“Great deal, good food, decent service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2012 via mobile

I am partial to thin and light tortilla chips- this place's are perfect! the salsa is chunky, very mild, and served in a tiny bowl. Ordered the chicken fajitas, which easily fed two people (with an extra order of tortillas). We ordered sopapillas for dessert. These were really huge and delicious! Satisfied with the overall experience. Other people looked like they were ordering burrito platters that seemed to have generous portions. The fajitas were good, but not amazing. Would have liked having guacamole instead of the typical lettuce plate. Overall, this was a great find off route 15/route 40. It's a good little Mexican joint, just don't expect to be wowed. Expect satisfaction, which in my opinion, is often underrated.

“Good for a Quick Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2012

We used to dine here once a week and now it is about once a year. They used to have a buffet, at least on weekends. I don't know if they still do, but that would be the way to go there. The food is very salty.

“Not what it used to be.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

I've been to Casa Rica before but it was years ago. I wanted to take my friend out for her birthday and she chose here. In the past i'd had a positive experience so I was down for some Casa. The lowdown: the place could use updating. It's dirty too, the dust on the wood was | | this thick. This place must have changed ownership since the staff appeared to be of middle eastern descent and not Latino. Hey, I'm not saying they wouldn't be able to cook Mexican food, but they couldn't on this day. I ordered a steak quesadilla and it arrived oily and the steak was shredded, unexpected and not edible. The guacamole however was to die for so i filled up on that & chips. Couldn't eat the quesadilla. My friend ordered steak carnitas med-rare. It came well done. We told our server and he said, "ok". Obviously there was a language barrier. The drinks were excellent. My grandson had chicken fingers & black beans, both were good. Save your money and don't eat here, you'll be disappointed.
