Our server was delightful and the food was good. Drinks were even better! I think they may have been short-staffed as the service took some time, but that was not the fault of our server. Good food and good drinks - what's not to like?

Great meal before a shopping trip at University Place. The tortilla chips and salsa were great; the chips were heated, which is always a plus. Te drink menu is extensive; we had great white sangrias.

My entree was a 3 enchilada sampler, one each of eel, chicken, and carnitas. Very tasty with black beans and rice. My friend had a burrito bowl with chicken, also delicious.

Service was good; our server was friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was nice; we were in the dining room; there is also a bar and outdoor seating.

I’ll e back.

First time at Casa Loca Mexican Cantina. Will definitely go back. My wife's meal (blackened chicken) was excellent! The chicken, vegetables and rice were all very tasty, with the right mix of spices/fruit. Delicious! The price was great too. My burrito was overall good. The beef was fresh but nothing made it stand out from burritos I've had in other places in the past. The presentation of the burrito could have bee better as well. It should have been plated (instead of in a basket). Our waitress was fabulous and the ambience very warm and inviting. Bottom-line great dining experience and we will return.

It’s a small town Mexican restaurant close to the expressway. Manage your expectations accordingly, and you won’t be too disappointed.

The food at Casa Loca is very good and the service is usually great. For this visit, service was not good. Our server was gone for a long time at one point which was when we needed her. Took forever to get the bill.

Food suggestions: the street corn app is great, Caesar salad with chicken, delicious, enchiladas were pretty good (per my husband.

It’s def worth a trip but not the best Mexican out there.

Fun vibe, unique decorations, and quality food and drinks! They were definitely understaffed but we all know every place tries their best. More of a classy vibe than a local Mexican joint but still authentic. Can't wait to come back!

It was a Fatjer's Day celebration. We were 6 people and made a reservation for outdoors. When we got there, it was too hot outside. They quickly made accomodations for us. The food was good, but the margarita's were the best we have had in the Boston area Mexican restaurants.

Literally horrible. We should’ve left as soon as we walked in and saw food on the floor by empty tables that was never cleaned up the the staff. The food was gross, the drinks were gross, the overall experience was gross.

It was a disaster. As soon as we walked in we saw at least 3 tables that hadn’t yet been cleared - there were dirty dishes and glasses on the table and fries on the ground. When we left most of it was still there. When we sat down our table was sticky so luckily we were able to wipe it down with our own disinfectant wipes (thanks Covid - now we don’t leave home without them). We ordered drinks that never came - we asked several times and eventually got a substitute. We ordered guacamole as an app that arrived with the main course. My son did not have cutlery and a napkin until half way through the meal. The food was not that good either. It’s a shame because my husband loves Mexican food and it would have been great to have a good quality local place. Never again...

Food was really great and the prices were reasonable. The nachos may have been some of the best ever. Service was a little slow but the restaurant is new and still working out the kinks so we didn’t mind. I would highly recommend this spot.

The steak chunks in my fajita were big and tough and over spiced. I ordered a Cadillac margarita and it tastes like coconut. Waiter said maybe the previous drink they made in the blender was coconut but my drink was on the rocks. They remade the drink but not really I'm not stupid. When I got the glass back half the salt rim was gone so the obviously didn't Remake it..the tortilla chips were like thick soft in parts leather. This is our 2nd attempt there. We won't be back. You need a Chef, not a cook.

My reservation is at 7:45, my mother and I sat for 15 minutes and no one came to we are table. Not one waitress stop by to give us some water or told us it would be a second. As it was Mother’s Day it was sad to leave because my mother and I were hungry but it was unfair that no one came to see it. We left at 8:05pm
