Best Of 2013: Bang-for-your-Buck Restaurant
Two of life's great recreations are eating copious amounts of Mexican food and knocking back libations with the simple end goal of knocking back more libations. At La Casita, a fella or lady can get properly stuffed and snockered on the cheap, while never compromising on taste. Of the establishment's 15 regular lunch and dinner plates, the most expensive checks in at $8.99. Margaritas are a seductive $3.49. And the guacamole is damn good — a comfort-food equivalent of ice cream. Avocado ice cream. You can charge me more for the guac, La Casita. I'll pay whatever. — Joshua Hutton
You can't miss the bright pink stucco on Eighth Street, North Nevada Avenue or Woodmen Road. And you shouldn't miss deals like Taco Tuesdays from 4 to 9 p.m., with BOGO half-off. Or the periodic all-you-can-eat breakfast ($5.99), lunch or dinner ($7.99) deals.
