The first time that I ate here was in 1972 when my college friends (two brothers) ask me to join them after our classes at Orange Coast College. My family moved to Costa Mesa in 1964 and I had not eaten here. The service was great as was the food! The nachos are very good eating when suffering from a cold as I attest to twice. Wish that you were here in our Monterey Bay city of Santa Cruz, CA.

Pros: Won't be back to find one

Cons: Everything about the place

If bland is your thing, then you will love Mi Casa. The entree, beans and rice were so lacking in flavor that this place makes Taco Bell look like the bastion of Mexican authenticity.\r

My enchiladas were microwaved at 10 for so long

Don't let the location fool you- great Mexican food and drinks served here!

Servers are wonderful, food is tasty, and the drinks are strong!
Make sure you go at their slow time because the wait can be awhile.

This restaurant has the best margaritas around! Not too sweet and go down smooth. The chips and salsa are amazing. Lots of food for the money - one taco with rice and beans is more than a meal. The salads are crispy and the blue cheese

This place is decent. Mixed opinion, first time I went it was good, but the second time wasn't. Things not to order: cheese enchillada or a margarita (worst margarita I've ever had). Other stuff is good no doubt, I just haven't tried everything yet.

Honest! If you love cheese...MiCasa is your place. Sometimes it's hard figure out the chili rellano to the enchilada, because it's covered in cheese! Taco's you can barely open your mouth to bite it because it's loaded with yummy beef,

I have been enjoying this restaurant ever since I was very small, and my family, friends and I continue to love it even more as time flies by. The tacos are amazing, be sure to try the fish tacos, the best anywhere in my opinion.
