Las Casuelas Nuevas
Las Casuelas Nuevas, located in one of the ubiquitous brightly colored haciendas along Highway 111, has provided Rancho Mirage with traditional Mexican home cooking since 1973. The founder Florencio Delgado (for whom an adjacent street is named) opened the original Las Casuelas location in 1958, using recipes handed down from his grandmother, a Mazatlan native. The current owners carry on this family tradition, featuring truly authentic Mexican cuisine such as carnitas a la chipotle alongside staple Tex-Mex fare. Their Sunday brunch is probably the best feature here, offering prime rib, salmon and vegetable dishes as well as traditional Mexican favorites complimented by live music. Margaritas are plentiful here as well, with five top shelf and six house specialty margarita creations available in a modest twelve ounce or a decadent twenty-seven ounce glass. If the weather permits, ask to be seated on the "best of the valley" award winning patio.
avoid this place.
my family (wife and two girls ages 5 and 7) went to this place over Christmas break (2007) and it was very poor overall. we eat at mexican places about once per week, and this place was one of the worst. food was crappy for all four of us. the only good thing was the chips. service was also very poor (I left no tip at this place).
mariachi band never came to our section of restaurant (and we were there for 1.5 hours total).
there are much better places in Palm Desert (i.e. Palm Springs). avoid this place, even the Palm Desert locals told me to avoid this place, I should have listened.
Great refried beans that are made with lard. The rest is just average tasting that is expensive for what you get. Not much to leave for the imagination. Bland tasting everything. Del Taco is better IMO.
Had lunch here, the service was ok. Nothing outstanding. The food was Tex-Mex, which was ok. The quality of the food dishes was good. Pricing seemed a little above average, example, three enchiladas for $15. Would go again.
I have to say that they are overpriced. Additionally, you never know if your food might be suddenly contaminated by bird droppings. Sorry, not too pleasant, but it is part of the dining experience there. Also, the last (and probably final) time we went there, a bug crept out of the chip basket. Other than that, they have a nice location..
Go here all the time. Wonderful patio. Live mariachi music. Great margaritas. My favorite menu item is the Quaxacan (sp?) tostada. We always have a blast, one of my favorite restaurants around. Definitely take any friends visiting us here at least once.
We went on a Sunday in March weather around 80 degrees was lucky to be seated right away on their patio which is mostly shaded. Food is excellent and we are picky eaters. We choose to order off the menu as opposed to have the Sunday brunch Service was great! The manager was running food. ( manager delivered the food ) she was very nice and accommodating. They had a 4 or 5 piece mariachi band which I usually don't appreciate but theirs was much different. they did all types of music and it wasn't in your face. The whole patio clapped and appreciated the music. It was a fun lunch. The waiter we had Gabriel and the manger made it a very good experience.
The service her is not good and I left feeling a little sick to my stomach. My friend and I had to aske 3 times for chips and salsa and the food is just average but expensive. I do not recommend this place at all.
I went there once. The worst mexican food I have ever tasted. Want good mexican food, try the Casuelas Nuevas in La Quinta. Corner of 111 and Washington. The best nachos, the best margaritas and prompt service. I highly recommend it to all mexican food lovers. I always look forward to their dining experience.
This restaurant was always a must for our family during the early 2000 s. However, things have changed. As we arrived on a busy sat. evening, the appearance and atmosphere was as nice as it has always been. Great Hacienda style patio seating, mariachi band, margaritas. As we ordered, we couldn t wait to once again experience the bubbling hot plates of delicious flavors. The abundant melting cheese, the generous portions. When our food arrived, we looked at each other in disappointment. Had we unknowingly gone to El Torito or Acaplulco? Where was the portion size? The the bubbly hot molten melange of cheese , beans and red sauce. The fajitas arrived on a plate, no sizzling ,steaming platter in sight. The shrimp enchiladas were small and dry, a la chain restaurant. Very disappointing. Perhaps the ownership has changed , or food costs have caused a scaling back . Definitely not the Las Casulas of the past.
