Chicken Mole Enchiladas

When I visit my daughter, this is our go to restaurant. Mole is my favorite sauce. There's reminds me of my grandma. The sauce is incredible and the chicken is so tender. And did I mention the fresh tortillas. Yummy.

Cheese Crisp Special

My husband and I have been here many times. It is our favorite Mexican restaurant in La Mesa! We held my husband's 60th birthday party here with friends and family. All the food is great but our favorite dish is your Cheese Crisp Special (we call it our Mexican Pizza!) It has beans, meat. cheese. avocado and other goodies baked on top of a crisp flour tortilla. It is really loaded with toppings and is easily enough for 2 people but we usually order our own so we can take home some of this heavenly goodness for later. (I can almost taste it now!) Casa De Pico has a fun busy atmosphere. It is always packed with customers but the wait is never too long and definitely worth the it! The people who work here are the best! Great service--fast and friendly! Prices are really reasonable. They also have a huge shaded patio with plenty of seating and mariachis playing lively music from table to table. It is in front of Grossmont Center so parking is pretty easy no matter how busy. Thank you Casa de Pico...we love everything about you!

1. Taco, Cheese Enchilada, Bean Burrito

The food is great no doubt about that...."However someone goofed up on our order, we were supposed to get a Chicken Enchilada along with the Taco, cheese Enchilada and Bean Burrito, Apparently that wasn't the case, instead the Cheese Enchilada was missing and only the chicken Enchilada was in it's place. A bit disappointed on the order. This order was a delivery.

1. Taco, Cheese Enchilada, Bean Burrito

Everything in my combo was delicious! The beef taco was flavorful and perfect, the bean burrito was good enough to have by itself, and the cheese enchilada was pure joy to eat.

Muchismos Taquitos

These taquitos are THE best! The bell peppers in them make them different then others and super delicious, especially dipped in their amazing guacamole! These are a must for an appetizer or even a meal!

Tostada del Mundo

A beautiful dish loaded with all the things I like, plus with shredded beef added to make the combo perfect, and what I have been missing since dining-in was curtailed throughout California. All the ingredients (guacamole, beans, cheese, special salsa, lettuce, beef, etc.) tasted very fresh and actually more delicious than ever. Oh how I had missed all that; no restaurant makes it as good. It would have been a good thing if I didn't load up with a different salsa and chips when we were seated (after a brief wait for a table), but I couldn't resist. Add a margarita and attentive service and it was a dish and meal to remember. I'll be returning with other guests in a few days. Thanks Casa De Pico. Bob

Pico's Chimichanga

It is a meal in itself. I ordered the shredded beef chimichanga and it was absolutely delicious. The food was hot when it was brought to my table. The waiter made sure I had everything we needed. I give it 10 out of 5 stars.

Especial De Flautas

I've been waiting for a flauta since COVID locked us all down and I was so thrilled this was back open. The patio is perfect for fresh air and open space and the food is always amazing. I've yet to find a restaurant that makes flautas as good. My favorite dish, hands down.

Pico's Chimichanga

This is one of the best foods I have ever tasted. I choose this item almost every time I come to the restaurant. The Chimichanga comes with the rice and beans inside the delicious deep fried burrito, but I prefer to have them on the side. It is an extremely filling meal. Five stars all the way!

Cheese Crisp Special

This is my old time favorite! I've been missing it.😋Glad to know that dine-in is allowed now. My husband and I have been loyal customers of Casa de Pico. We started patronizing it when they were still at Old Town in the late 70s. We're so happy when they're finally opened the La Mesa (Grossmont) location. We celebrated a lot of special occasions at Casa de Pico!
