"Good food and great atmosphere"

My family had a blast at Las Casuelas.  It is a very crowded place on a weekend but we had reservations so we didn't have to wait for our table. I didn't make our reservations personally but I think that weekend diners should definitely try to make them if they can.  

We chose the outdoor seating because it was a lovely night and the live band sang classic hits that we were in the mood to sing along with.  It took my daughter about 3 minutes before she wandered to the front of the stage so she could dance to the music.  Meanwhile Mommy ordered a margarita and enjoyed the entertainment.

The menu at Las Casuelas, as with most Mexican restaurants was very extensive for adults.  The kids menu had hamburgers, tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and chicken fingers on it. Certainly nothing surprising but options for kids who enjoy Mexican food and those who are more picky.  

For my entree, I chose the burrito ranchero since it was one of the specialties and while it was good, it wasn't special. I consider myself a bit of Mexican food snob so my standards are pretty high. My husband got his staple, a carne asada burrito and said it was good as well. The kids went for a taco and quesadilla respectively and seemed to have no complaints.

Bottomline: The atmosphere is great and would definitely keep us coming back. The food wasn't spectacular, but it was definitely good enough. If I can dine with my kids and we all have permanent smiles etched on our faces, the restaurant is a winner in my book.

Disclosure: My family received dining credit from the Palm Springs Bureau of Tourism  during a press visit to Palm Springs. The bureau did not ask that I express any particular opinion and, as always, all reviews reflect my honest opinion.

"Popular restaurant"

Every time we come to Palm Springs we always seem to find ourselves at this restaurant. Prices are reasonable, especially for the combination plates. They also offer a kid's menu. It's a casual setting and kid-friendly. Although the main restaurant entrance is handicap accessible (good for strollers, too), the room where we were seated on our recent visit had only steps leading into it and so my hubby had to carry our stroller up the five or so steps. We were later told that we could store our stroller near the kitchen. Other than this little hiccup, the food was good and the wait staff was friendly.

"Fun Atmosphere, Casual, Entertainment on the Weekends"

This is a busy, packed, restaurant in the heart of downtown Palm Springs.  You will likely have to wait, they don't take reservations.  You can shop or chill outside the restaurant and wait, people watch, etc.  When we went, they had a band which was thoroughly entertaining for my son.  The food was good, classic Mexican fare, affordable.  

It's very popular, even if you go to eat early you will wait, so just be ready!
