Steak Quesadilla at Casa Maria
The food at Casa Maria is pretty standard Tex-Mex style cuisine. There is nothing on the menu that really jumps out at me, but nothing that I've ever ordered has been bad either. Like most "Mexican" restaurants, Casa Maria serves free chips and salsa, and their version is pretty tasty, though nothing unique. The steak quesadilla that I had was loaded with steak fajita meat and cheese and served with sour cream, guacamole, and jalapenos. Like everything else, it is great for a quick, cheap meal or snack, but nothing that makes my mouth water. When I go to Casa Maria it is always way more about the staff, the friends, and the drink specials. Some decent food is usually an after thought and after 6 to 8 Dos Equis and three baskets of chips and salsa, the entree usually doesn't matter that much. I'll keep going back as long as Fahim and Alba are there, and I'll keep eating, but I won't have my hopes up that I'm going to get a real culinary treat, just some pretty good Mexican food at a pretty fair price.
