Molly Gonzales' LA Casita
Tortilla chips and salsa start every meal. The most popular appetizer is Mexican chicken wings, coated in a dry, spicy sauce and served with blue cheese dressing. Entrees include quesadillas, tortillas, which can be filled with spinach, mushrooms, cheese, tomatoes or a variety of other toppings; tacos and chile rellenos (peppers stuffed with meat and rice). A full service bar offers margaritas and Mexican beers. The walls are painted to look like clay with Mexican and desert designs. The tables are wooden and a little worn adding to the traditional feeling. The atmosphere is casual and fun.
My nephew, his two daughters (ages 2 and 4), and I eat at Molly's fairly regularly. If there is better Mexican food in Memphis, we haven't found it. Combine an excellent meal with attentive, friendly service, and a warm, inviting atmosphere, and you have the makings for a dining experience that one wants to repeat... often. And we do. Being vegetarians sometimes makes it difficult to find a good meal in Memphis, with its BBQ culture. However, having tried a number of Molly's wonderful vegetarian dishes, we have yet to be disappointed.
my husband and i went to memphis on our first date. we ate at molly's and it was wonderful... Then we went and got our ver first tattoos together! we married 1 year and 1 week later! we love each other and we love memphis! this april it will be 8 years since our first visit. we are from dyersburg which is about 1 1/2 hours away. We have been to m-town probably every 2 months since then and we always eat at molly's... It's a wonderful place. ( it is in gay town tho. hahaha.)
I went here for my birthday in March of 2007 on a co workers recommendation. I'm from So-Cal where I can get awesome mexican food 24-7. So I had somewhat high expectations of this place when my co workers talked it up like it was the most incredible mexican food ever. The service was awful - I had to get up to find our waiter just to get our drink orders in. After stuffing my face with crappy tortilla chips I realized we had been waiting for our food for about 40 minutes. Finally it came out - cold and swimming in grease. Ordered the Chorizo dip, which was basically a pound of cheese and store bought chorizo sausage links. My carne asada was basically 5 bites of meat and a ton of onions and bell peppers. We all left feeling like we just ate a ton of taco bell. If you don't know what REAL mexican food is then this would be great - but for everyone else, do yourself a favor and go elsewhere.
Our hotel is conveniently located just minutes from all of the Memphis tourist attractions. We are right at exit 12A
from I 240 and I40. We are just a few minutes from the Memphis Zoo, Beale Street and Graceland. ...
