    Not the best Mexican resturant in South Orange County but a good value. If you don't want to wait for 45 minutes for a table nor want to spend $60-$80 per couple this is the place. Even though I didn't have a child with me I did se many kids out on the outdoor patio. They sat my wife and I in a booth away from the children. The hostess needs to use her $ to find a personality.

    Went to this restaurant with a group of my friends. They easily accommodated us on their patio. Nice atmosphere, good service and they allowed us to split the checks easily.

  • Sunday at Mi Casa - Rancho SM
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 2/16/2014
    Had out of town guests who wanted to experiene SoCal. casual dining. Mi Casa is a wonderful example. Dress is casual and relaxed. Service on the patio (Ryan) was absolutely outstanding. There were eight of us and Ryan took care of every need and request. Food is reasonably priced and plentiful. So much so that my husband and I shared a plate (combination burrito with rice and beans) and still had left overs to take home. Extremely good value for money. Our family has been eating at Mi Casa, Costa Mesa, since they opened almost 40 years ago and, since moving from that area, now visit Rancho Santa Margarita regularly. The variety of Salsas are fabulous too.

    Our server was amazing, but the food lacked taste but was so over spiced you really had no idea what you were eating. There were 8 of us and the reservation was handled beautifully, but I don't think I will be back very soon, especially since there are so many wonderful restaurants in the same area.

    We visited on a Sunday brunch and while service was really first rate, the food, from the salsa, to the entrees were all "fair" at best. Generally plate presentations were attractive, the food itself just was bland.

  • Carnitas Brisket, Yum!

    Dined on 1/4/2014
    This was my second time to Mi Casa, and the food was better. I was hesitant about ordering the carnitas brisket because I'm used to it being pulled, but it was excellent! Their salsa was very good, as was the skinny pomegranate - pear margarita (even if it was a little light on the tequila). The service was good, but seemed rushed, and since it was surprisingly not busy at 8 pm on a Saturday night, I was bothered by it.

  • Great Salsa

    The "wicked" salsa is arguably the best that I have ever had (and I consider myself an quite well versed in this area). It is the perfect match of flavor and heat. Serving portions were more than adequate and the meals were served hot.

    This was my 2nd time to the restaurant. The 1st time I was not impressed (with the food or the service). The 2nd time the food was tastier and served hot. The service was also much improved. I will go back!!

  • Great Mexican Food

    The food here is the draw. Finally a good mexican sit down restaurant in RSM that can make a margarita as well. On past visits, I've had the burritos, tacos, taquitos, and enchiladas. I cannot say any one was better than the other, they were all very good. I'm partial to their carnitas as the meat for tacos and burritos.

    This was our first time at Mi Casa and it certainly won't be our last. The food was fabulous and there was plenty of it. The salsa selections were great. We placed all of our orders at the same time but our server said he would have the kids plates out first and he didn't disappoint. The kids plates were out in about 6 minutes if not less. Very pleased that Mi Casa is so accommodating to families. Can't wait to go back!
