We have eaten at La Nueva Casita Cafe a few times now. My only regret is not discovering it sooner! The food has been delicious every time and the service has been friendly. We'll be back again!

Its fairly small restaurant but I'm sure if you call them ahead of time, they could probably accommodate your party. They would probably have to divide you into the "smaller" groups.
