I love La Casita. I go to the one on Woodmen a lot. Once, though, they ran out of sour cream! Oh my, no sour cream? Yikes!

I even like their green chile even though it's completely different than my version - but hey, it's not about whether there's, mine or anyone else's is "authentic" it's about it being good.

They have three locations total: http://www.lacasitapatiocafe.com/

Default Arceo's

So the family and I tried Arceo's last night...we liked it. They had cheese crisps! I hadn't ordered one of those since I lived in AZ!
I had the chicken enchilada and a chicken taco- yum! DH had the chimi, 2 kids had chkn nuggets and fries () and then my oldest daughter had a chkn enchilada kids meal. The rice is a bit drier than I like it, reminds me of On the Border rice.
It was a Friday night and they were packed pretty full, which is a good thing. The location is not ideal, but good food!
1605 S. Nevada (old Pizza Hut building).

I like Senor Manuels near UCCS. Near the corner of Austin Bluffs and Nevada. Their carnitas is very good as is their regular Chile Colorado burrito.

For something faster, we like the place affectionately known as the '24 hr' mexican place. They are open 24 hrs. The official name of the place is called Viva El Taco, near Pikes Perk Coffee, on N. Academy between Vickers and Lehman. They have a drive thru and they don't speak much English but their carnitas burrito is out of this world. I could eat it twice a week! I also like their cheese enchiladas and their breakfast burritos.

I also miss the hole-in-the-wall mexican food places from Southern CA, as that is where I was born and raised. Moved here in 2002.

It is pretty good. Decent food. Good margaritas. I still like the Mission Inn (which is only about a half mile North on Academy) better. When I want a change of scenery, though, Pueblo Viejo does just fine.

Went to Pueblo Viejo today and Iím not impressed. My wife and I had the same thing and it was a lot like Taco Bell food (Beer was good). The service was slow and the place was loud. I would give the place an ambiance rating of 3. Iím from So Cal as well and I appreciate everyoneís input so far.

We need to try Las Casitaís a try as it looks to be a good place to try sometime.

Does anyone know of Don Joseís on the corner of Bolsa and Goldenwest in Huntington Beach? The best chimichangas <sp> on the planet?

P.S. We love COS and we love our community! As far as Iím concerned CA sucks!

There are 2 great Mexican restaurants in town. One of them is Salsa Brava and the other is Amanda's Fonda. I believe each restaurant has a couple of locations. They are definitely worth trying. I am starting to feel hungry just thinking about it...

You may think I am kidding and I wish I were but we eat fajitas at least once a week and I am not sure if we could survive without! Please tell me there are several good resturants to choose from!!!!

I went to Salsa Brava in Rockrimmon and had horrrrrrible service. I haven't been back since. It was so bad that I don't even remember the food. Odd, that, as I love food but apparently bad service leaves me with no taste in my mouth.

Drive through express in the Springs: for yummy shredded beef tacos, there's always Taco Star on Circle or the new one near Wasatch where you can sit down inside. The farther west you get the better the Mexican food is. Sure do miss my San Diego fare though. Once you get spoiled there's no going back. Puerto Nuevo's Lobster village in near Ensenada, Mexico and Calafia are the best places on earth to eat. Ouch I miss being away from home
