“This place never disappoints. We are always happy with any dish we order. Tonight I had the shrimp tacos and they were perfectly cooked. We also had the tamales and dessert was great. The flan was cooked perfectly. The first time we discovered La Casita de Mama we were house hunting in Shelby. We ordered pitchers of sangria and bought a house an hour later. We are happy homeowners and glad we also have a taste of home at La Casita de Mama!!!!“

“Decent Mexican food restaurant. Came here for lunch on business and I ordered the enchilada. The portion size of rice and beans were great. The enchilada (chicken) seemed to look very thin. Everything was tasty though. The only suggestion I would have is to update the restroom. The sink in the bathroom uses handles to turn on and off the faucet. It is great that they have a sensor towel dispenser so one does not have to touch anything; however, having to touch faucet handles after one washes their hands kind of defeats the purpose of washing to clean ones hands. I would also suggest that the soap dispenser also be sensor; however, the faucet should definitely be sensor.“

Taqueria El Taco Feliz Mexican • $

“Was driving everywhere to find somewhere to eat. Was gonna eat at our usual spot Bread and Deli in kukui grove (their clam chowder bowls for 8$ is so good) but they were closed (everything closes super early on Kauai aside from all the tourist spots in Kapaa) we settled for this Mexican food truck and it was really good. 18$ is a little steep for me but it is in kapaa and a big portion. The chimichanga was huge and I always love having something fresh to go with it as all the meat beans and rice can be heavy. On top they put lettuce, tomatoes some guacamole cheese and sour cream. The beans on the side were a little bland and the rice is well, rice. The meat was very tender and all in all good. I was surprised that they didn't have horchata, my boyfriend and I always look forward to trying new horchatas from different Mexican eatery's so we were a little bummed out about that. Since Kapaa is a busy road and it's kind of off the main road it's a little hard to find parking. I think there was a parking lot across the street but hard to tell, we just pulled over on the side of the food truck. The server was very nice and their menu was displayed on the side of the truck which I love. I always have to visually see what I'm getting so there's no surprises when I receive the food!“

“I got 1 lengua, 1 pastor, and 1 carnitas. Wonderful flavor. My only complaint is that the meat was a little dry. To be fair, I went mid-afternoon after the rush, so I can see how some of the meat may have had a chance to dry out. I look forward to going for a rush sometime.“

El Molcajete rdz Mexican • $$
811 Washington St, Shelbyville

“This may be the most authentic Mexican food to be found in Kentucky. I recognized some of the food on the menu but most of it was not American Mexican fare. I ordered a dish I had never heard of. It was wonderful. The server didn't understand most of what we said but that didn't matter much. We will return.“
