La Casita serves the best, fastest Tex-Mex food at the best price. We love the low key, family atmosphere, the prices and the taste. Whenever we think of Mexican fast food we go to La Casita.

There is something about La Casita and it's not just their pink building. I love their tacos and the salsa bar. They do put potatoes in their beef tacos which sounds weird, but I actually love it. The staff is always friendly and they get the orders out quickly. Reasonable prices and good food; everything I look for! It's nice... More

We went to La Casita for lunch when in Colorado Springs. The restaurant has plenty of room and a good atmosphere. There isn’t full service here and orders are placed up front along with food pickup. There were many options and the food was very good and served quickly. There is a salsa bar which offers good, fresh made salsas.... More

Got the chicken enchilada plate and it was pretty good. I liked the tortillas - they were thick, but not salty like others had reported. There's a salsa bar in the middle of the restaurant to help add some flavor to the food (which is a bit bland). Overall, there's nothing special about this place. It would be a better... More

Went there with my parents and son. Food seemed to be made quite fresh and had good flavor. Salsa bar offers some nice salsa choices with different flavors. I had the taco salad. Was ok, but could have had a bit more lettuce. Lettuce is pretty cheap and is a starting point for most salads. My parents enjoyed their fajitas.

We like to eat in this garage-turned-into-a-restaurant's patio area. The Tex Mex food consistently satisfies. I like trying the different condiments at a help-yourself salsa bar: crunchy chicken tacos, cheese enchiladas, and pork tamales are the favorites. And, the drive through window is a good convenience.

My family and I used to love coming to this place but after today I doubt I will visit this location again. Dinra (I think that was her name, the cashier) was very rude. Not only was she rude but very irritated at having to answer simple questions. I asked her if I ordered the Super Mexican if I could... More

I have always been told to be nice when I critique places. There is only on other place I have given this low of a score even when I gave bad service. There food is really bad. They make there own tortillas but should really think about buying them from someone who can make them. Mine were really salty and... More

I love the #41 beef fajita with guacamole burrito. Meat is usually tender and lots of mild guacamole inside the handmade flour tortilla. Took a little while to place our order with only one other couple in front of us and then she took a short break before coming back to take our simple order. Then the food took forever... More
