I dined here while working in the area recently. I enjoyed a "Perfect Margarita" and a fajita burrito. The servings are very large--so I enjoyed the leftovers for work. The service was also excellent!

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 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...More
