    This place has been here for years you know the owner has made money. I just wish they would invest some of it on the outside spruce it up a bit it’s dull. The parking lot needs to be repaved because it looks like and feels like you’re driving on the craters of the moon 🌙

    I moved to the west end many years ago And I was talking to a friend that lives south of there and I said let’s go check out La Casita. I have to admit it’s probably been 20 years and it looks the same when I walked in this evening as it did before. It’s nice to see a local place succeed as long as they have. . The food was as amazing as I remember. I had a chimichanga, and my friend had the steak fajitas and you could not go wrong with either. We had Pleasure to be waited on by Kim. She was very nice and personable, and when it was time to get our containers to take home, she actually gave us new containers of the sauces with the chips. She’s a keeper. Ask for Kim. Thank you for keeping things authentic. I look forward to you returning soon.

    Great service and food! The white sauce is creamy, garlicky, and cheesy (cold). The salsa is smoky, fresh, and salty (not too much). Overall a wonderful experience!

    It’s not much to look at outside, inside you get that warm, kind of funky, “we’ve been here a long time and we are what we are” feel.
    Let me assure you, if you dont like the hole in the wall exterior appearance, or the kind of interior decore they have chosen, place your order any way.
    The first fork full of their delicious hand crafted Mexican cuisine will bring you back again and again. Guaranteed.
    The food was outstanding.
    The wait staff excellent.

    By far out favorite Mexican restaurant in Richmond. Excellent service. The quality of the food is consistently wonderful. We love the fajitas, but everything I have had has been great. Always start with warm chip and the trinity of sauces. The green jalapeno sauce is my fave and their crema is unique and hearty. They also don’t bury everything in cilantro. Ambiance is charming with strung lights and casual dining antosphere. And though we haven’t ordered off menu, the menu is a suggestion, they will do their utmost to build whatever you like. Thank you guys!

  15. Kellen Owings 2023/06

    Cute restaurant, and love the atmosphere inside with the Christmas lights, but quite possibly the worst Mexican food I’ve had in RVA.

    Ordered chicken fajitas, and they didn’t come out sizzling (which I mean is half of why you order fajitas out) – just slightly warm onions, peppers and totally flavorless chicken that looked like Purdue Short Cuts, on a plate. Having 3 salsas was nice, but way too salty. Also, maybe put on the menu what beers and drinks you have so wait staff doesn’t have to go ask.

  17. Jacqueline Jones 2023/06

    Server was friendly and professional. Restaurant has good atmosphere. The enchiladas ground beef was too salty, in my opinion, but each Spanish restaurant style of cooking is different.

    First time visiting this establishment and everything was great! It’s definitely cozy inside and so fun with all the lights and decor and traditional music. It’s an old favorite of my mother-in-law’s. We stopped by for lunch after a morning outing.

    Food was great, portions were a good size, and complimentary chips and salsa were fantastic! La Casita has 3 special dips they provide to every table; red, white, and green salsas, with increasing spiciness. We only had the red and the white salsa, the green would have been too spicy for us. Their white salsa (an apparently VA local creamy dip that I love) was thicker than others I’ve had from other establishments, and definitely spicier.

    It may not be not my ultimate-favorite local Hispanic restaurant, but it’s my MIL’s and I’d gladly go with her again.

    We have usually gone to the “big box” Mexican restaurant with multiple locations in Richmond. What a mistake. LA Casita’s food is so much better – flavorful and fresh – given that it is not an assembly-line kitchen. The atmosphere is more conducive to conversation and the service excellent with a friendly, patient and knowledgeable server.

    Edgar provided fantastic service. I frequent many Mexican restaurants and this is the first time that a server at a Mexican restaurant has taken their time to offer suggestions, and describe menu items in detail. He also said that we can change any item or ask for items not even on the menu. That definitely never happens. The food and margarita were both great too. Terrific job, Edgar and LA Casita!

    My partner and I stopped here during a long road trip. I loved the ambiance – the lighting and the decorations are distinct and fun. The manager Edgar was incredibly friendly and made us feel right at home. I had the Chile Relleno, which was excellent. My partner enjoyed her taquitos de papá (Edgar’s grandmother’s recipe) – it was particularly nice that there were dishes that she (a vegan) could enjoy. The chips were good, as were the various salsas on offer. This place is a gem and should be part of your itinerary if you’re coming through Richmond.

    Oldest Mexican restaurant in Richmond and delicious. Very attentive staff so if you like to be left alone maybe not your place, but I loved it! Plenty of vegetarian options, and vegan too. My only knock would be I wished the margarita wasn’t as sweet but I’m sure if I asked next time they will make it any way I choose. Adorable decor as well. I definitely recommend this play.

    Cool decor, Mexican version of shenanigans. Amazing food. Maybe skip the speedy Gonzalez, go for the Verdes enchiladas or Michoacano burrito. The salsa(in background with the margarita picture) and white sauce with chips are absolutely amazing. Good drinks, try the Cactus Berry margarita (pictured) and pose out front with the cardboard cutout after.

    Edit- our lunch group is sad they are no longer doing lunch at all during the week. Would love to have a taco Tuesday or a lunch Friday.

    I shouldn’t even issue two stars for this, but my waiter compensated for the horrible food. I had the most dry chicken I’ve ever had in a toddler sized portion, and everything was sub par at best. Rice wasn’t even good. They don’t even have zucchini for their arroz con pollo, and it was just an all around horrible dining experience besides the cool waiter who didn’t charge us for extra chips. My guy knows who he is.

    Really love the decor and staff at this restaurant. Family owned, always very nice and friendly. This was one of my best friends favorite place and always came on his Birthday. I haven’t been here in quite a while and coming back from my daughter’s practice, driving by, thought we would stop in. I always wanted to like this place, but it’s just not my jam. I never thought the food was very good. Always seems fresh and served hot, but not sure how they cook it or spices they use. My wife got the taco chicken salad, which is on chips not a bowl, which actually is a neat twist. Everything was ok, but just bland. She gave me a piece of her chicken and it had now seasoning at all. I got the tamales, but could hardly finish 1, came with 3. The sauce, mole I think, was just overwhelming and not good. It almost tasted burnt. My daughter liked her meal though. I liked their salsa, but it was to spicy for my wife or daughter, it definitely had a kick. If you haven’t been here, I would try, seems like the people who like it, love it. Unfortunately not me.

    Was driving by at the end of a work shift and saw this intriguing restaurant. I could only stop in for take out, but will be back in person. It’s got so much character. And what the heck is in this white sauce? I usually don’t even like white sauce, but this is divine and addictive. Glad I followed these reviewed and got some! Thanks for the quick Saturday service and hospitality 🙂

    I’ve loved this place for decades. Really neat place inside and food is great. But I now have a blood pressure problem and the sodium levels in their food is really high……I had to stop going.

    The absolute best in RVA! The food is incredible (the carnitas are my go-to). I can’t speak highly enough about the service – Edgar is great and makes this place feel so welcoming. Try it once and you’ll want to keep going back.

    I had seen La Casita several times traveling from Fredericksburg to visit my brother in an assisted care facility in Richmond. Recently, I was hungry and decided to stop at La Casita to order takeout. The inside was clean, cheerful, and inviting. I was greeted by the manager who politely provided me with a menu. I ordered the Tacos Norteno which were steak tacos with caramelized onions, fresh cilantro, and fresh guacamole on house made corn tortillas. I also got a flan to go.
    The tacos were excellent with that comforting aroma of hot corn tortillas and cilantro. The taste was savory & delicious. The steak in the taco was loosely diced and was ample and tasty.

    The flan was house made and very yummy!

    I’m looking forward to a sit down meal, at La Casita, when the opportunity presents itself!

The margaritas are delicious, the food is amazing (I’m a vegetarian, and there are OPTIONS), the sauces are just so good! And they’re so friendly!

    La Casita is a longtime favorite of ours. The service is always outstanding and so is the food. Edgar even brought us potato taquitos, similar to the ones his family made in Mexico when he was younger. This is an awesome place!!

  98. Logan Marks 2021/02

    La Casita Mexican Restaurant was an amazing experience, from there unique decor, delicious food and the awesome service from Mr.Edgar. Mr.Edgar made us feel at home with his hospitality and great conversations. See you again in September!

  101. Jamie Nickels 2021/01

    The red, white, and green dipping sauces are great. The wait staff was great. The chicken was very dry and the chips a little stale. Sides were bland. The restaurant has a long history and we enjoyed the decor.

  102. Matt Alt 2021/01

    My wife, daughters, and I heard LA Casita has the best white sauce around, VIA a Facebook group my wife and I are in for Richmond eats. This is 100% true, it does not disappoint. Edgar our waiter was absolutely awesome. He educated us on the menu, the businesses history, and how he has been there 21 out the 40 years they’ve been open. He was extremely personable, attentive,, professional, and genuine.. It was a slow Saturday around 3 when we went in so we had the place to ourselves. We had Taquitos De Papas as an appetizer, which was phenomenal. I had the Tacos Nortenos, my daughters split a tacos combo, and my wife had the Carnitas. Everything was delicious, and fresh. We have found a hidden gem that we will definitely return to.

  109. Victoria Walsh 2020/10

    Tried a two new items tonight. Strawberry margherita and the beef enchiladas.
    Best margherita I have had there. And the enchiladas were fantastic! I’ve had the brown sauce before, which I’ve always liked. Tonight it had a spicy, bolder flavor. Same with the white sauce.
    Very happy and will be back again soon!

    We’ve lived in the area for almost three years and finally made it to La Casita this month. It will absolutely be our new spot for Mexican food. The vibe was perfect and fun. The margaritas were wonderful – not overpowering with sweet/sour mix. Just perfect. Our food was top notch. We got a chicken/chorizo quesadilla and steak tacos. Both dishes were extremely authentic. Our server, Edgar, was very inviting, genuine and attentive. We had the best time! We will be bringing friends back with us to share in this experience.

    The inside is so festive and the staff is super friendly. The food is incredible! I am a vegetarian and my husband is not. This was our first time here so Edgar offered many suggestions and even offered to make something if we’re didn’t see it on the menu! Chatted with some of the other customers while we were there and had the most enjoyable time. It feels like we were having dinner at the house of a good friend! Thanks for the wonderful food and hospitality, see you soon amigos….. and next time we’re leaving room for the sopapillas! 🙂

    Terrible dry food. The owner also instead of offering to fix the issue spoke down to me. Never. Again. Update in reply to management. I didn’t get into an argument with my dining partner. We were quietly discussing the terrible state of our meal. Ninety percent of the reviews I leave are overwhelmingly positive as well. If we are going to talk about telling the truth, why don’t you try it? After our abysmal experience with your business, we decided to go to a different Mexican restaurant, which actually had palatable food. The chicken that we were served was very obviously flash frozen and not Seasoned before being put into the tree bark that you call a chimichanga. I understand that this item is deep-fried. However, deep-fried does not mean burnt. The chimichanga was so burnt that he had to literally saw through it to get into the cold innards which were of a disappointing quality. You are however absolutely correct in stating that I was not charged for any of the abysmal experience that I had with you. As that should be the case.

    This has always been one of my favorite places….they food is almost always top tier, well seasoned and very flavorful and hefty portions.
    The seasonings are fantastic as are the various sauces.
    I have been coming here for over 35 years.
    This would be easily a five star, but as of late the service can be hit or miss with higher turn over in servers.
    Also, be sure to come plenty of time before they clothes…as of late, they seem to shut down the establishment around you near closing time.

  161. Katy Harrington 2019/07

    Very unique Mexican place! They have your standard dishes but with fresh ingredients. They make their own margarita mix, their own salsa, and their own chips. Just beware that since this is the case you have to pay for any chip refills. Love the atmosphere and decor.

Not only very good food but the server/manager Edgar was awesome. I asked for a home made hot sauce he brought me their green salsa although not the hottest it definitely had a great kick and very tasty and fresh. Thank you for being here we will be back!

    Food and service were terrible. Waitress kept forgetting things and the food tasted like frozen or canned Mexican.

  205. David Bivens 2018/11

    I’ve been coming here for a long time (and have a big bottle of their white sauce in my refrigerator right now), but today’s experience was a downer. I love the white sauce and asked for a little more to put on my food. I was told I’d have to pay for it.

    Sure, the menu says “4 oz. sauce: $1.00”, but (as I told the owner), I don’t recall being charged for a refill on previous visits. Maybe I was and didn’t notice.

    Most Mexican restaurants will give you more salsa (or one complementary refill if you buy food), so being charged for the first refill was an unwelcome surprise. I’ve liked this place since the 1980s, but I really like being treated like a valued customer, too.

    It’s certainly their prerogative to do it, but it left a bad taste in my mouth. I hope the revenue from salsa sales exceeds its cost in customer goodwill.

  206. Emma-Braxton Miller 2018/10

    restaurant was virtually empty and it took our food way too long to get to us, food had no flavor and to top it off i was sick after four bites before even leaving the establishment. would not recommend and will not return.

  207. samaz0nprime 2018/10

    One of the places we’re keep coming back to. Food is always good and service is friendly. I like that it’s a smaller restaurant and dimly lit, feels very intimate. Nice to have the variety of salsas that come with the chips

    We love it here! We have visited a number of times and it has always been fabulous. The food is delicious (best chili rellenos in Richmond), service is accommodating, and the owner is the greatest. He checked in on us a number of times during our meal and recommended a great tequila for us to try…Three Generations (yum! You’ll be surprised!). Overall, PERFECT. We will be back again and again….and again.

    Great Mexican food, and great prices.

  212. DM B (Dave) 2018/09

    Great food. Extremely friendly service.

  213. Becky Blanchard 2018/09

    They used to be really good years ago but now not so much.This last time I visited a couple weeks ago there was a weird unpleasant smell that I couldn’t identify but it spoiled my visit and I couldn’t enjoy my meal.Unlikely to return.

  214. Missy W. 2018/09

    Food was awesome! However, 20 minutes after the syrupy margarita, I pulled an Exorsist. Stay away from those!

  215. Vicki Alexander 2018/09

    Visited yesterday after many years. I had forgotten what an adorable, fun place this is! The other thing my friend and I noticed was how sparkling clean it is inside. There are tons of lights and decorations hanging from the ceiling, and lanterns on the walls…and not a speck of dust! Even the faux plants looked like they were regularly cleaned. The service was warm, sincere, and very welcoming. The pork burrito I had was totally delicious and I’m already craving another one. The food genuinely tastes like it is made with love. A nice departure from the usual.

  216. Stewart Goodwin 2018/08

    Always excellent food, excellent staff and friendly owner.

  217. Tinky Morris 2018/08

    Nice little quaint place. Food was very, very salty. Too much sodium in their food.

  218. Horror Business 2018/08

    Stale chips, bland food. It’s okay for a hole in the wall, but there are better Mexican restaurants in the same price range in the area.

  219. EricNVirginia 2018/08

    Best mexican food around. Very different than typical chain restaurants. Inside Decor is definately an eye opener.

  220. Ben Hoover 2018/08

    We went for dinner. Food was good but service was lacking, he seem to be new. I have been several times for lunch and it much better then.

  221. Bill Shepherd 2018/08

    Great authentic Mexican food and the restaurant is nicely decorated. Service is friendly and quick and we will definitely be going back.

  222. Gary Klein 2018/08

    Great Place to eat. We have been coming here for many years and have to drive for 2 hours but it is worth the trip. Absolutely love the food. They have items that you can’t get at any other Mexican restaurant. Have never been disappointed with the food or service. Simply love the atmosphere and all the colorful lights. It is definitely our favourite Mexican restaurant.

  223. Jeff Matherne 2018/08

    I have been coming here for nearly 15 years and the food just keeps getting better. Service is fantastic (Edgar is awesome!) and the prices are very reasonable. There is something about this place that feels authentic and old world at the same time – you absolutely can’t beat it in Richmond!

  229. Carol Brown 2018/07

    Delicious and fun. They will prepare any dish vegetarian

  230. Cliff Hursey 2018/07

    Food was kinda bland. Maybe an off night. Service was good.

  231. Vicki Sanchez 2018/07

    Good food, good service, great atmosphere, reasonably priced. I will go there again.

  232. Albert Shakarian 2018/07

    Very casual, great service, most authentic Mexican food in Richmond. Service is excellent!

  233. Kælyn 2018/07

    Best Mexican food in the city!! Can’t say enough about La Casita; ABSOLUTELY the most authentic food we have had this side of the border- outside of Nana’s kitchen!

  234. Aymie Timberlake 2018/07

    This is definitely a good Mexican restaurant, the food is excellent but don’t plan on taking a large party in there especially not a bunch of children as they cannot accommodate high chairs or have a lot of offerings for children’s food. This is much more of a small hole in the wall date night place than anything. Love all the lighting and decor. Wish they would add more offerings to the drink menu.

  235. Lepaula Lang 2018/06

    Worst mexican food i’ve ever had

  236. Cory Ferguson 2018/06

    Been going here since I’ve been a kid. Never disappointed

  237. Robin Johnson 2018/06

    One of northside’s hidden gems. Service and food were above average.

  238. Jared De Blander 2018/05

    Great nachos and salsa

  239. James Mays 2018/05

    I love the food the service is excellent

  240. Rachel Leber 2018/05

    None of the food was fresh. We could hear them microwaving our food. Upon entering the restaurant there was a strong perfume smell that was very off putting. The server was nice to us, but not other patrons. Save your money and hit Taco Bell, the food is better there! The only positive review I would give La Casita was that the beans were very good.

  241. Henry Campbell,Jr. 2018/04

    Always friendly and fresh made meals

  242. Sade Tanner 2018/04

    Chria is my favorite Server, polite, prompt and very attentive!!!

  243. Emma Fox 2018/04

    Great experience! Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Very attentive service, and a welcoming atmosphere. Also the decor is so cozy and charming! Would definitely visit again.

  247. Greg Murray 2018/03

    It was ok the service was ok. They was great help but when they got busy it was a little frustrated. 2 servers on a wednesday night

  248. Luke Smith 2018/03

    Tiny little Mexican place. Quiet, great food, very reasonable prices, excellent service, cozy atmosphere.

  249. Brianne Barham 2018/03

    Very disappointed.
    Ordered a speedy Gonzales, the beef in both my enchilada and hard taco was nasty in flavor and tasted old. My enchilada was so sloppy I couldn’t even eat it. No enchilada sauce on top, was covered in lettuce and tomato. (Never have I ever been served lettuce and tomato on top of my enchilada). I want my money back, I didn’t even eat my lunch it was that disgusting.

  250. Marianne Hornung 2018/02

  253. Jason Talley 2018/02

    The most authentic Mexican food in Richmond. Love it!

  254. Jason Daniels 2018/02

    Great decor and the service was excellent along with delicious food. I had my doubts before going in but they were forgotten almost immediately.

  255. Familia Cortez 2018/01

    Real mexican flavors

  256. Bill Fields 2017/12

    A very fun atmosphere with great food. Most authentic Mexican in all of Richmond. If you have never been, you have got to try it.

  257. Barbara Bivens 2017/12

    Good food but they charge for extra sauce?!? First Mexican restaurant I’ve had that experience at. The three folks in my party all ordered drinks and a meal, so I was surprised to see this on the tab.

  258. Adriaan Gomez (Adriaan Follansbee) 2017/12

    We love La Casita! The food is the best Mexican food we’ve had since moving from west Texas and the employees couldn’t be more kind and helpful. We have a 2 year old and they always bring her food first and at a kid friendly temp. We have gone several times and couldn’t be happier with each experience.

  259. Amy Jones Williams 2017/12

    This restaurant has been a part of Richmond for forever. It offers unique and excellent food. Period. The Taco Salad is so good, & the white sauce should be sold in grocery stores everywhere it is so amazingly good!! The atmosphere is fun with all of the Christmas style fun lights strung everywhere. I just cannot say enough good things about this local, quaint restaurant. I wish everyone in the Richmond area would come visit & give this place a try… I don’t even like Mexican food very much in general, but I LOVE this place!!

  260. Chris Hamlett 2017/11

    Authentic Mexican restaurant that doesn’t conform to the conventional Mexican chains … which are delicious … but also abundant in Richmond.

    Relaxed atmosphere with fast & friendly service. Lu Casita was in heavy rotation when my employer was located in this area … offering many vegetarian entrees and/or substitutions.

  261. Joann Maciorowski 2017/10

    Good public service.

  262. Ronald Wood jr 2017/10

    Great food at a very fair price

  263. Steve Chippendale 2017/10

    Nice family business and the absolute best chili rellenos and carnitas.

  264. Isaac Truett 2017/10

    A solid choice for lunch. Service is quick, food is good, prices are reasonable.

  265. djarnone 2017/10

    Food was not good and service was subpar. Chips were stale. Christmas decor was over the top.

  266. Richard Cunha 2017/10

    Awesome eclectic decor, friendly staff, and lightning fast service make this a great stop for lunch or dinner. The menu contains a pretty good variety of options, all decent fare, and the complimentary chips and salsa are top notch

  267. Alfredo Chacón 2017/09

    Es muy lenta la atención

  268. Cat Edwards 2017/09

    Amazing little place. It’s quiet and cozy. Not too expensive, good food, and the staff are great!

  271. Sheena Graybeal 2017/09

    Not your typical mexican food. You ask for beer, they give chicken. Ask for salsa and dont get in your to go order. Owner was more worried about his 4 friends walking in the door then checking me out and giving my togo order then to top that off he checked out a freaking party of 3 (all seprate checks) before checking me out with my food sitting right there in the bag. I WILL NEVER GO BACK. Oh and thanks owner guy my not so great ice burn tasting fried ice cream was melted. You made my once a month date night horrible. 👎👎👎👎👎

  272. tony bullock 2017/08

    I love the food and the waiter Ricky is great

  273. Garrett Vlieger 2017/08

    It’s a hole in the wall, but if you want reasonably priced Mexican in a casual environment, you could do worse. Food is consistently good, and the service is prompt.

  274. Stephania Walker 2017/07

    Love this place. Favorite of my whole family. They make you feel like a part of the family. Food is always wonderful and fresh.

  275. Michelle and Mark Blackwell 2017/07

    This is possibly the worst Mexican food I’ve ever eaten. The only positive is that I didn’t get food poisoning. The server an older man who said his name was Edgar was rude and extremely unaccommodating. The chicken in the enchilada was not only cold but dry as a bone and when I asked for lettuce, tomato and sour cream I was charged an extra $2. When I spoke to another server who was very helpful I asked her about my server who also happened to be the manager and she told me he takes all the shifts for himself and his son. Not only that the servers are not fed even with an employee discount and are only allowed to drink water. I and my family will NEVER return to LA Casita

  276. Floyd Rountree 2017/06

    Love the topping for the taco salad.
    Anyone know how to make it?

  277. Joann Maciorowski 2017/06

    Friendly, margaritas were great, salsa tasty and Lisa the waitress was very efficient.

  278. Edward Heavener 2017/06

    I have been eating there on and off for over 25 yrs. I never had gotten disappointing food until today. We ordered the taco salad. The meat in mine tasted burnt. I said something to the server about it was told it must be me. ” He had it at lunch time today and it was fine to him. The chicken in my girlfriends had no flavor. Service was great

  279. Sharon Burrell 2017/05

    It looks a little shabby from the outside. The decorations are over the top. The food is fantastic. Pleasant surprise. My family is on the way to becoming regulars.

  280. Holly Cheatham 2017/05

    Very dissapointed, my sister and i ordered our meals which were the same thing. When the food came we didnt like it and we only tried one of the meals because they were the same. Eagar(we believe is the owner) the server told us he couldnt take a loss because it wasnt his fault, we didnt like it. We were very polite and said we knew it wasnt your fault, can we please order again, he said only if we pay for the 1st meal. We paid for the meal and left, i have never been anywhere that wont let you reorder for any reason. We will never go there again!!

  281. Jesse Ferguson 2017/04

    Friendly hometown Mexican done right

  282. Dana O 2017/04

    C’mon…never have I eaten at a Mexican place that wasn’t good. This was almost inedible. The Mexican pizza was literally hormel hot dog chilI. The only good thing was the jalapeño salsa and that I didnt get e. Coli.
    However waitress was super nice.

  283. Shawn Weisser 2017/04

    Terrible service. Terrible food. Never got part of our meal. Chips were stale. Beans tasted like canned, tacos were very small, Chile rellenos was bland and soggy, enchiladas were tough. No positives.

  284. ellen mckenna 2017/04

    My favorite Mexican restaurant in Richmond. Decor is so fun. Best taco salad. Love the three different salsas with chips. Staff is always friendly.

  285. Don Chandler 2017/03

    Awesome like always. Took Lenna for the first time. She liked it too.

  286. Mary Louise Chandler 2017/03

    Very unhappy and dissatisfied…. mixed drinks were listed in two rows and in a different color than the rest of the menu with a price of $5 at the end…….one of us ordered a margarita and dinner…..when the check came, they had charged $6 for the drink…..when we contested the price, their explanation was that only the last two drinks were $5….. the rest were $6…..but there was no other price in the list……needless to say, they have lost THREE customers as a result of that $1overcharge…… our rating would be a minus , absolutely no stars but we give one star for the service…..waiter was very nice

  287. c d 2017/02

    Good food, good portions, good prices, great staff,

  288. andrew silver 2017/02

    Been coming here for years. Simply the best! Edgar and his crew are incredible. Food is the best Mexican anywhere.

  289. Taylor Ward 2017/01

    This is my very favorite restraunt! Ive never had a bad meal here!

  290. Veloschka Raptor 2017/01

    My favorite Mexican restaurant in Richmond! They have the white sauce! The decor is tacky in a good way. Try the homemade sangria 🙂

  291. Richard Saylor 2016/11

    A must-visit restaurant if you like Mexican food, and are in the Richmond area!

  292. Joy Duke 2016/11

    I have eaten at La Casita many times during the past years and love the food. However I did not enjoy my last visit during which my friend and I ordered iced tea, were served water and changed $1.75 each for iced tea. We brought this to the attention of the manager who was neither friendly nor customer service savvy and who took the position that because we drank the water (water that he called iced tea) he would not remove the charge from our bills. The beverage we drank tasted like water and had no coloring whatsoever. Do not know if I will return to La Casita but I do know I will drink my water before I leave home.

  293. Bradley Chapman 2016/10

    The food is amazing

  294. Nick Morgan 2016/10

    Carnitas may be the best in RVA

  295. Ann Boelzner 2016/10

    Good food, friendly & fast service.

  298. Brett Wilson 2016/06

    My family and I have come here for almost 20 years. Every birthday and report card celebration is spent here. We love it. The combination dinner is the best of all options; you get a little bit of everything. And the white sauce for the chips is wonderful!

  299. Justin Bajan 2016/05

    Cute little tex mex place. It feels like a little house.

  300. Blair Wilcox 2016/04

    The food was OK. Service was quick though.

  301. Cat Stallings 2016/04

    Definitely a great little dive Mexican food place. A must for all richmond visitors and locals

  302. Cynthia Crosby 2016/03

    Love this place. The best Mexican Food. Love, Love,Love the white sauce. Get it all the time

  303. Mary Kathleen Engelken 2016/03

    Nothing special. It advertises at the top of the menu that almost anything can be made vegetarian, but there are only a few vegetarian options already available. When I asked for a vegetarian burrito, they charged me extra for taking out beef and adding onions and green peppers. The service and atmosphere were fine tho.

  304. Paul Messplay 2016/01

    A hidden gem in north side. Great food and super accommodating to veg/veg+ diets

  305. Bethany Lewis 2016/01

    Good food, reasonable prices, and always friendly staff. Great hidden gem that more people should check out!

  306. Mason Huckabone 2015/12

    Great service, atmosphere and above all else, food! The carnitas were the best I’ve ever had. This is going to be a repeat for us.

  307. chris habboush 2015/12

    Best food in town, my family and I eat there on a weakly basis. The food is superior and the service is the best. Very friendly staff and my kids favorit restaurant. H0me away from home. If u iubhavent been there checknit out. You owe it to yiurself.

  308. Stephanie Magruder 2015/12

    I have been wanting to come here for years and never made it before tonight. Well I wasnt disappointed. I want to say it’s a little pricey but it’s so worth it because you can tell everything is homemade. Everything we had had a bit of a kick to it but flavorful not just hot I loved every bite from the chips and cheese dip to my chile rellenos. Bf had fajitas with chicken beef and shrimp and the shrimp was cooked perfectly. We will be coming back and soon!!

  309. Natasha Lucke 2015/11

    Best Tacos in RVA!

  310. A.J. Adams 2015/02

    This is by far my favorite Mexican restaurant ever. Their white sauce for the chips is absolutely amazing and goes great on the food as well u should definitely try that if u go. I am a tow truck driver and come here alot (not as much as I used to bc I moved but come whenever on this side of town) and the manager is a really nice guy he always greets me and makes sure all of his customers are taken care of. By far the best Mexican restaurant out. Only thing I don’t like about it is that it isn’t open every day. It’s closed on Sunday, so these negative comments on here shock me bc I have been coming here for at least 10 years and never once have had any thing less than an amazing experience. I would recommend to everyone.

  311. Patrick Catalano 2015/01

    The service was amazing! And the food even better! When I confessed it was my first time and that I really liked the sauce they gave me three individual containers to take each one home and a bag of chips. Really can’t say enough about this place.

  312. Tim Latham 2014/07

    This was actually the worst mexican food I’ve ever had; it tasted like they dumbed Ragu pasta sauce all over our dishes. I’m a big guy who loves food but didn’t get halfway through my meal.

  313. Diego Solis 2014/06

    LA peor comida que aya probado no y Los precios super altos no les recomiendo este restaurant

  314. Toni Richardson 2014/04

    Wish I could rate it lower than this….waitress was very rude, service was extremely poor – slow and inattentive….general staff was just rude….quality of food was not all that great either. I complained to the manager and understood why his staff were the way they are… I would have been better off at Taco Bell across the street. I recommend this restaurant to no-one – not even an enemy.

  315. Ardie Browne 2013/11

    My wife and I have been dining at La Casita for over 23 years. Less often since moving away from the area. Had dinner there last Thursday eve. Food excellent, Decor is delightfully strange. After reading other reviews here on this page, we deliberately ordered different items so as to get a wide range of taste experiences. None of what we read here was consistent with our experience. Only sorry we live so far away now. The white dipping sauce was so outstanding (and just the way we remembered it) that we bought a bottle of their secret recepie sauce to take home. The entre’s were tasty and quite large enough. Dessert, I found the “Flan” to be the best I ever had. While we were there, 2 groups of firemen came to have dinner also. We all know these guys find the best local restaurants with the largest portions to keep up their calorie count for work. They were right on, choosing this place.

  316. Jessica Bell 2013/02

    Went here with the whole family this past weekend. Very cool on the inside, makes it feel like a fiesta with all the crazy lights …. food was EXCELLENT! Some of the BEST Mexican food in the city! Waitress was friendly and we never had an empty glass or basket of chips!
