Just across the street from Montgomery Park in Old Town North, you’ll find Casa Felipe, arguably one of the city’s most beloved Mexican restaurants. Offering both regional Mexican fare specialties and Tex-Mex-style platters for dine-in, take-out, and delivery, this place is a favorite among locals and visitors alike.
The tortillas, tamales, and mole are all made in-house daily, and popular dishes include the crispy chile rellanos, as well as the sizzling fajita platters, heaped high with beef, peppers, and onions. If you have kids who are picky eaters, never fear — this place has a kids’ menu that turns down the spice levels and also offers surefire hits, like chicken tenders.
The atmosphere here is friendly and casual, and several Yelp reviewers suggest you think of it as a reliable neighborhood hole-in-the-wall. In other words, this is the kind of place where you meet up with friends from The Kingsley for a few drinks and some nachos!
