Some of the best burritos ever! I catch myself daydreaming of this place sometimes. I also love the old school ambience, dim lighting and great service. This place rocks!

Enjoyed the place and food. They keep the lights dark but overall it's really nice decor and waiters and waitresses are very good in brining orders and very knowledgeable about what a vegan can order.

Been around for a long time. Since 1956. The food is good, the margaritas excellent, but the prices are ridiculously high for Mexican food. +Parking can be an issue, so valet will likely add another $4.50.

It starts when you arrive --- $4.50 for valet parking, despite the presence of a large parking lot behind the building. Standard cocktail $12.... my date ordered a single taco with rice (at the bar): $13.90. Ridiculous, given the decor and location.

First, let me say I have been a patron of this establishment for almost 10 years. Typically going to the bar at least once a week. However, we recently moved a little further away so I haven't been back in several weeks. My husband and I were there this Sunday afternoon and realized there was a significant price increase. Second,... More

The food is really really great Mexican food, and the price at lunch is reasonable and you leave with a full belly. We were so happy to find this place we ordered dinner to pick up the next night, and for the same meal it went from $24 to $51 we couldn't believe it. I don't know if drink prices... More

We had 15 people and the restaurant totally accommodated us. The food was good, the interior was fun and tacky in a good way. The drinks were excellent. We all had a fun time and saw Andrew Dice Clay in the restaurant. We went super late (After 12am) and it was perfect.

We sent our margaritas back three times. We almost left after attempt number two. It just wasn't worth the hassle. The drinks tasted bitter and not at all yummy like a Cadillac style margarita ought to taste. The waiter was patient and didn't make a fuss and he was quite nice about it, so he insisted on a third try.... More

I ate at Casa Vega yesterday for lunch. I had the Taquitos Ranchero Combination. The beef taquitos were fully filled and fried crispy. The rice and beans were good as well as the guacamole and sour cream. The service staff was very attentive and nice. The only thing I did not like was that it was so dark in there.... More

Good was so bad I am now in search of Tums! Chips and salsa were bland - rice was tepid and the beef fajitas were tasteless, stringy and sitting in a pool of condensation! Very disappointed in the evening-
