I have been here several times to eat. The food and the service are always good. Some portions are small for the price but service and atmosphere make up for it.

The staff was friendly but service was extremely slow. The food was terrible, from stale chips to extremely dry chicken tacos to wet soggy rice. Weirdest mexican food experience I've ever had.

Tommy Price

Best mexican food I've ever had

NM style Mexican food. When it comes to red or green Chile, it's both! Waitress was attentive and friendly! Great environment, everyone was super upbeat. Would come back again for Mexican food.

Heaven's Warrior

The food is always consistently good, the staff is very fast, friendly and very attentive . The salsa is perfect consistently hot with no cilantro just the way I like it. Even when they are busy your food arrives fast.

Very good homemade salsa made fresh everyday.

Britney Barker

Terrible food & sloppy service. We waited 15 minutes before getting a refill & our orders taken. I definitely will not go back.

First time in Carlsbad and we were looking for Mexican. Decided to try Mi Casita and were really happy we did. Just wish they had Margaritas.

Awesome food and great customer service


We visit this place quite frequently. At least every couple of weeks we are here enjoying the Mexican food. I usually get a taco salad because it’s delicious and healthy ish. But their asado is fantastic and the Chile rellenos are my favorite. Chips, spicy salsa, guacamole and queso are all great! They are always busy but are quick to get food out! My husband get the Dunagan almost every time. Lots of food but he eats it all. Also the Brian’s nachos are my guilty pleasure! They have beer too!


First timer. Had lunch special, brisket burrito smothered with chili verde. Good brisket flavor, courtesy of Sysco & decent verde. Sides were unimpressive, rice was oatmeal consistency. Fast & pleasant service. Maybe breakfast is next.

Michael Lis

Not impressive. Was recommended to try it out but nothing stood out. Even though most Mexican food is the same, this was about as mediocre as you could get

Deborah Barber

Recommended by locals however we found it lacking and not very flavorful. Nice staff and the food arrived quickly. No kid meals on the menu but the did offer them if you ask.

Adriana Segovia

Good decent food. Staff was great

Kassie Fairbanks

The perfect little Mexican restaurant. Good food. Good staff. Delicious tacos.

Paul Blanco

Great customer service and the food is always on point!

Ana Guataipu

The staff was friendly, however when looking for a vegan / vegetarian options there was almost none because the beans are cooked with pig fat, there was no guacamole for the next two weeks because of the prices have gone up on the box which is disappointing for a Mexican restaurant because that’s their staple. Then to top it off they had no bell peppers only jalapeí±os and not everyone eats just spicy peppers, most Mexican restaurants have bell peppers :(

Mi Casita always seems to be busy and for good reason. Great staff and delicious food.

Brittani McKelvey

Giving two stars because the staff were very friendly and nice but the food, was not good at all. The salsa was probably the only good thing on the table. I asked for hot tea they gave me an iced tea bag in a cup of hot water and my breakfast burrito was supposed to have extra green chile but it looked like they just slathered my burrito in the sauce from pot pies. Their rice, was like risotto and not in the good way.


My husband and I stopped here before heading to the Carlsbad Caverns. The food was awful. Steak in the tacos had no flavor and was a bit tough. The green sauce was really nasty and was more reminiscent of a hollandaise sauce. The Mexican rice, well it was totally wet and tasted absolutely gross. The chili verde was more like a gravy, and was also unappetizing. The sala, iced tea and Sol beer were delicious. Not a fan of this place and will never ho back.

Gabriel Torres
