One of my preferred dinner spots whenever I'm in Tucson. You will not walk out of here hungry. Generous portions and great home made flavor. The carne seca is a must try, the Mexican steak is out of this world, and the chicken mole serving is so huge, prepare to share. Friendly service and a full bar with pours as... More

We were a family group of eleven people each with different tastes and diets. The service was excellent and very accommodating. Gluten free options were easily available. Margaritas were excellent But most of us left disappointed with the food. Cheddar cheese on cheese crisps? Chilaquilas was not worth eating: too much sauce, and way too salty. You can get better...

The CLASSIC CASA MOLINA CHEESE CRISP---only on Speedway--still wins top merits! Smothered ,if desired , with green chilis, tomatoes, onions---mmmmm good. Side order of the very tender beef in red sauce, and of course the ground beef tacos. Don't forget the legendary C.R. margaritas---and enjoy the best authentic Mexican covered patio. Staff and service is always very attentive.

Casa Molina is an old favorite of ours. Most diners like it for its fine dining and ambiance, but we recently discovered that they have a great happy hour and bar menu. We stopped in to kick off our evening dining sojourn, enjoying shots of tequila and street tacos. We also found out that they offer $3 beers during UA... More

To be honest, I am a little biased, since we have been going here since 1963. There have been a few times when the meals were inconsistent and not perfect. Plus the margaritas and sopapillas are not that good. Sonoran Mexican food is all about the interesting meat dishes that you cannot get anywhere else. And, Casa Molina has some... More

This is a quaint restaurant with good food. I ordered the lunch special that comes with 2 chicken or two beef tacos, rice and beans. Salsa and chips are included. The food was good for the price, $7.25. The tacos were stuffed with meat, lettuce and cheese. There was no skimping at all on this lunch, they filled our plates... More

Average service, good mexican food at a reasonable price. The fajitas are seved with only one HUGE tortilla, I have never seen this before. The chips and salsa were lackluster.

Local favorite with 4 locations around town. Have eaten there several times in the last month. My favorite dish is the Carne Seca plate. Wonderful flavor -- never a disappointment. Also enjoyed the Chicken Frajitas. Had the Chicken Mole which was OK. Try the flan or deep fried ice cream fro dessert. Huge portions, good service, comp chips and salsa,... More
