I waited until after our 2nd visit to do a review because i wanted to try a different menu item just to see if the food was consistent. I t was. There were 3 of us about a month ago and that time the ladies had the fajitas and I had the Steak Azteca, which was excellent. It came with... More

We saw this place while in town and decided to give it a try. We are glad we did. The service, from when we entered until we left, was excellent and gracious. We were looking forward not only to the food but to the music. We arrived in time for the happy hour, $5 drinks, and stayed for the excellent... More

Had a nice dinner. The owner Roberto was so accommodating. He could not do enough. I would definitely go back. I had a steak dinner came with rice and beans. The steak had great flavor.

My family and I went to this restaurant for dinner 3 or 4 months ago and unfortunately we were not too impressed. But since I had another Groupon, we decided to give it another try recently and this time we all liked it. On both occasions, the place was empty except for us and one other table. It’s never a...

We were in town visiting and decided to try something new. We found this great little restaurant. The outside is deceiving. The inside decor is nice and cozy. The staff was great. The owner and chef came to our table to explain the menu and give suggestions since we had never really ate latin food. The selections were great. Loved... More

This was one of those Groupon disappointments. For the area, this Latin food is below par. I am Latin and love Latin food, but this was not good. We normally go to this very great Columbian place not far from this location which we are huge fans of which gave us high expectations for this place, too. We were completely... More

When you're disappointed, so are we. Honestly, I'm surprised to see that you were so underwhelmed by everything -- since we used only the freshest, highest-quality ingredients, we want you to love what you try. That said, I'm sorry if the service was unusually slow. I know it's been quite a while since you left this review, but I really... More

We have been to La Casa Latina many times and it NEVER ceases to amaze me how GREAT the food is. The owner is the chef and his wife is one of the waitresses. The food is terrific, always fresh and made to order - nothing sitting under a heat lamp. Every dish has a Latin twist to it -... More

Used to be better. Small local restaurant. Decent steaks, like the rice but not crazy about the beans. Love the flan.
