Miami New Times' Description
Since this "Little House of Texas" opened in 1987, Cesar Berrones and his family have not stopped serving heaping portions of Tex-Mex fare. Starters are composed of the Americanized pleasers you might expect at Señor Frog's, but are prepared with more aplomb -- and more chilis. A fiesta sampler of quesadilla, flauta, tamal, and taco with beans, guacamole, sour cream, cheese dip, lettuce, and tomato is large enough to be shared (though it costs only $8.95). What separates Casita Tejas from the pack is their superior seafood dishes: deep-fried whole red snapper is one of the better catches, as are the eight giant shrimp grilled with garlic and chili guajillo. Two other classics done right: steak fajitas are sizzling, and chicken mole possesses just the right touch of chocolate, which acts as a velvet glove against the fiery fingers of smoked chilis. Desserts are rarely the high point of Mex eateries, but Casita's "chimi" is cheery: a large flour tortilla fried with apples inside and crowned with caramel sauce and Cool Whip.
Tips from foursquare
Get the Queso while you wait on your meal.
Decent "American" Mexican food. Good salsa. Not great ambiance or service, though.
Try the Ceveche, it's great!
Just ok. Nothing to go out of my way for.
