La Casita - Fast, Funky, Fun

Probably the only reason we really go to La Casita is because it's within walking distance of our house. But every time we go we, it's enjoyable. The place is popular with the area locals and you get a lot of decent food for a great price. And don't forget the chips with three types of salsa - red, white, and green. I am fond of mixing the white and the green together and then spooning out some green sauce in my refried beans.

So, on Friday we headed to the little house once again at the corner of Azalea and Brook. The sign offers a hint of what's inside.

The funky holiday lights adds to the quirkiness of the place.

I tried the soft taco special of the evening with grilled steak, grilled onions, guacamole, and cilantro with Spanish rice and refried beans. Very tasty.

We also tried the drink special featuring tequila and orange curacao - way too sweet. We switched to margaritas for the second round.
It was still all good and doesn't break the bank. If only they featured some kind of pork dish...

We love this place. One of the most interesting Mexican places in Richmond - and the food and salsas are always great.
