La Casita 

I have to say, I really love La Casita Mexican Restaurant. With locations in Columbia Heights, Roseville, Coon Rapids and Waite Park – I’ve heard it called the best Mexican restaurant in the Twin Cities, so I’m not alone in my conclusion. Casual with no wait, open and airy, festive atmosphere, bold colors, fun waitstaff and incredible food – yep, right up my alley! La Casita has been part of a lot of people’s histories as they have been coming to this Cantina-style place since they were kids. I only recently found them and fell fast. I could say that it’s the happy-hour salsa bar, or the grande prickly pear margaritas that are about the size of me – both true – but it’s actually because I really, really love their food. Baja tacos, fajitas, enchiladas, chimichanga, carnitas,… and don’t even get me started on the deep fried ice cream! Huge portions and a free dinner on your birthday?! Sign me up!  Do you have a  favorite Mexican restaurant?
