Even more than the taquerias reviewed in September, La Casita is a carnivore's dream, with little to offer vegetarians. Its interior is pretty tired, but the staff, almost constantly supervised by owner Enrique Martinez, is friendly, and the food clearly authentic. Really, between the soups, quesadillas, gorditas, and pambazos, I can hardly decide how to narrow down an order. Like the first time, I'm sure I'll be carrying home leftovers whenever I visit.
