    Excellent genuine Mexican food. Delicious margaritas. So many dishes, will have to return to try others.

    I sincerely try to leave positive reviews. But this is not one. Prices are a bit high compared to other restaurants in the same category. We dined indoors, but patio looks great. First round of chips and salsa is free. Salsa came in a plastic cup and was pretty bland. Chips were just ok. Chicken tacos and enchiladas were bland and dry. I will say the food is pretty healthy because they don’t use a lot of cheese and no trans fats. But again the salsa/sauce for the tacos was in a plastic cup and bland. Drinks were good (margaritas). Beer list is terrible. No local brews at all. Service is pretty good. Local comparable restaurants like Guapos or Uncle Julio’s have better food and lower prices and no one time use plastics.

    Service was slow. We waited so long for desserts we tried canceling like 3 times. After we got it we were not happy with what we waited over 20 minutes for. It was not good or fresh like it’s been sitting for 20 minutes…. The guacamole was excellent. The tacos were good but the fajita steak was dry. Rice/beans have no flavor at all. Carry out is a better option

    Service took a long time…had to ask someone to get our server. Then it was fine. Shrimp tacos pretty good but a bit cold. Husband had mushroom tacos and said they were ok. It’s a fun outdoor spot on a nice day. Margarita tasted weird…strange for a Mexican restaurant. Was very disappointed about that!

    Tacos and sopas were excellent. Bartender and wait staff were pleasant. Would love to go back again if we were in the area.

    Food and service were amazing. Ambiance is also very good although it does tend to get loud. Loved the patio area. Will definitely return.

    The food is bland but some of it is yummy, maybe it was just the time we went. The restaurant has the most uncomfortable chairs you can imagine, and I felt like the price was a bit too much for the small proportions of items. Service was good, but the noise level was horrendous.

    Regrettably, our dinner at Casa Oaxaca was just plain ordinary, no creativity or pride in presentation. My husband was born in Oaxaca and we eat more Mexican than American food at home. Frankly, our food is better - the black beans were under cooked, and the rice had no flavor. I had Enchiladas with Salsa Verde; the sauce was very good but there was so little of it on the plate. The Mole was mediocre, a true disappointment for a restaurant whose specialty should be the signature dish of Oaxaca. Overall, we really wanted to offer up a rave review, but just can't.
