We went for Sunday Brunch, and as a brunch experience we found it lacking. They have a few breakfast dishes added to their menu and call it brunch. It was disappointing. We won't be going to "brunch" there again.

The queso was like water with tomatoes thrown in it, my rice and beans were burnt and tastes awful! The food was very disappointing and we will never be returning.

This restaurant has been a favorite, but they have changed their menu and dropped many of the items my family enjoyed. The service was very slow and our waiter was very rude. Too bad, but this will be one we drop off our list.

OMG, let me count the ways!!! This is our FAVORITE Mexican restaurant of all time. Delicious food, amazing service- it's kinda like the old TV show 'Cheers' - where everyone knows your name! I crave Mi Casa every week. World's best margaritas, and you HAVE to try the Queso Fundido....and the Chili Verde.

Visiting from out of town and checked Open Table, as always, for a good, local restaurant. Not disappointed. Service and food was excellent. would return, again, next time we're in town.

All four of us loved our entrees, and they were all different. And there's plenty of food - always bring home another meal.

Service was great - timely, but not pushy. Ambiance - well, it's noisy, even outdoors. Oh well.....

Very disappointed in mahi mahi tacos. Small pieces, not filets. I get better mahi mahi tacos at Baja Fresh.

Service was ok; waitress seemed stressed, Britanni. Was hoping this could be a new place for us to go even though it's not in our neighborhood but didn't find that it would bring me back.

Patron skinny margarita was good. Guacamole was good.

The chips and salsa were delicious and I liked the fact that everyone got their own salsa dish. Team refilling them both was attentive and fast. Service was fine. I chose the skirt steak, house specialty. The steak was fabulous. Tender and well seasoned. It was accompanied by a form of rice on the plate and lettuce. For a house specialty and a more expensive entree. It should have had beans, guacamole, a vegetable, etc. the meal was incomplete.

It all tasted good. I was expecting more for the accolades I read about. Mexican restaurants are common and competition is fierce. It may have just been my entree. Everyone else in my party enjoyed their food very much.

I never heard of a restaurant running out of silverware to the point that not only my table, but the one across from us and kitty corner to us all were served salads, but no one had set up the tables with eating instruments. I finally got and went to the front and asked about it. Eventually the waiter came over to all of us and apologized for no silverware, but it has happened before and would get us some asap. What would cause a restaurant to keep such a thing in such tight supply??? That or the dishwasher went on a long smoke break? Not sure we will try Mi Casa again with such poor attention to customer service. Oh yes, once we finally got a fork to each our salads with, it wasn't 2 minutes before all the entre's showed up. Really?

Our absolute FAVORITE local Mexican food restaurant!!! Best margaritas, chips and salsa anywhere. Try the chili verde, it's the BEST. We go 3-4 times a month...

Food was ok, service was poor, had to ask for water refills. Kids were screaming and crying the entire time we were there. Not a bad place, but a lot of better Mexican places around.
