This is a local favorite. Food is authentic, tasty and served quick. Prices are great, especially lunch specials. My fav: Chile verde burrito is huge and smothered in sauce! Taco Tuesday specials and friendly service.

Yummy authentic local Mexican food! Second time here and really enjoyed it both times. Old school style is sure fun sometimes. My husband had the chicken burrito and I had the bean tostada ala carte. Service is quick and polite. Chips were refilled the moment the basket was empty. Margaritas were awesome. We will be back! This is the best... More

Casa de Lago is a neighborhood restaurant that is obviously popular with the locals, so we decided to try it while driving to Ojai (right up the road, where there's another Casa de Lago restaurant).

Great little place on the way to Ojai. All the traditional dishes and a few surprises. Big platters of food. Hot chips and salsa. Good sturdy food. Not gourmet but then I would rather have consistent good food. Easy parking. A little hard to find.

If you want good Mexican food and plenty on the plate, then this is the place for you. It's small and well situated on the corner off of Santa Ana Blvd and N Ventura Avenue. When I say "plenty" I mean most combination plates are on large oblong plates usually with refried beans and rice. You won't get any fusion... More

Consistently good, but not top notch. Good variety on menu. Fajitas and fajita burrito a good bet. There was a flyer on the counter promoting a local gun show.
