This is a great non-chain Mexican style restaurant. Has dinner there tonight for the first time with friends that have been coming here for years. Small size restaurant with a lot of smiles, great friendly service and yummy food. I had chicken enchiladas cover in green chili. Just the right mix of flavors and taste. Popular place. I will be...

I visited this restaurant recently with a group of friends. Located in a strip mall, this is not a large restaurant, but we were greeted promptly on a Saturday night and they quickly found a table for the 6 of us. We started with beer, which was very reasonably priced, and most of us ordered the #7 which contained a... More

The green chili sauce is very, very good. Prices are reasonable. There were 3 women dining alone when I was there. It's a comfortable little place to eat by yourself. Service was good. I'll continue to eat there when in the mood for Mexican food.

I have gone here for years and will admit I usually get the same thing every time although my wife waivers once in a while. #7 combo for me and a Tuba T or Hyde Park for my wife. Get the chips and salsa but make sure you ask for some of their hot salsa too. It's awesome and mixes... More

We went tonight for dinner, first time. Drinks were brought quickly and our order was taken in a timely manner. The food came out fast, like any other Mexican restaurant, on very hot plates. I wish they had used more poblano pepper in my rellanos. Our server never came back to our table to ask how the food was and... More

The food and service have really gone downhill. Was there for lunch and food was served lukewarm. Salsa was hard to eat because it had large tomato pieces in it. Waitress didn't tell us about the special so if you don't happen to see the board in the back of the restaurant you miss out.

So here's the deal folks: Why is it that all Mexican restaurants (except Las Caras) serve tasteless food, soggy tacos, mush, etc. At Las Caras, they take pride in EVERY SINGLE DISH THAT GOES OUT. They serve a combination plate that is SUPERIOR to any restaurant in town, and the taco is crispy as ordered. That's because they don't throw... More

After a long drive from the mountains and trying to decide on dinner options Las Caras was the right choice. Good food at a good price. The Tubba T is great. The Chile reyenos are awesome. Dine in or pickup, either way you can't go wrong. This was recommended by a friend and I would recommend to everyone else.

Near the super target, tucked away near the Benihana as well. I often go there to get my Mexican food fix. Darn passable good, great rellanos and I often get the beef combo which is a taco, and burrito. Great chips and salsa as well. Service fast and attentive. Not much atmosphere, which is not a bad thing for Mexican... More
